Friday Favorite Things

friday favorite things | finding joy
These are a few of my favorite things this week

Granddaughter's carefree play--joys of being young
Puppy love--Our 4 month old puppies sleeping on grandson's bed.
Grandson--the grill master.  That's his graphic art in background.
African Violet blooming on my kitchen window sill
It may be 111.4 outside with humidity at 4%, but my living room is very comfortable at 79


Each week, Hilary at Feeling Beachie lists four statements with a blank for you to fill in on your own blogs. If you want to join the fun and come up with four fill in’s of your own, please email them to her at If she uses them, she will add you as co-host to the hop! 
1.       I always _make a pot of coffee__when I_first get up in the mornings.__
2.       Putting down a good book__ is very hard for me to do
3.       Whenever I eat _Mexican food_, I want to _listen to a Mariachi Band.
4.       If I ruled the world, __hunger_ wouldn’t exist and everyone would _be able to get a job.  But I would not tolerate free loaders.


  1. Your grandson's art is impressive! Way too hot for me where you live! Although, my son visited Arizona last August and he loved the heat! Go figure. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. 111! I like it good and warm, but I do think that 111 is just too warm. ha!

  3. So love your grandson's art too! amazing.
    I can't imagine it ever getting that hot here -- I don't know what we would do???
    coffee first always - and the world would be a happier place :)

  4. wow!! 111 degrees... I can't imagine! :)

  5. I also have a hard time putting down a good book. Nice answer there.

  6. Oh my those puppies made me smile.Warm Blessings!~Amy

  7. Oh, I love your Granddaughter playing hopscotch and your Grandson's graphic art, WOW!!! 111, makes me miss Sedona, AZ, doesn't get quite that hot but still makes me think of Sedona, I just left there a week ago, I was there for most of the winter.

    I understand the problem of putting down a good book and love your fill in to #4!!

    P.S. if you happen to go looking for my Fill In post it is not on my Blogger Blog, it is on my Wordpress Blog, which is on the Linky!

    Have a wonderful weekend :)

  8. Puppies!!! I love them, but my hubby is allergic to dogs :( I just want to snuggle up to those little pups!

  9. I can't put down a good book either!
    Love the doggie pic!
    111 degrees? I think if you had your thermostat set to 90 you'd still be comfortable. Yowza!

  10. I can't put down a book if it's really, really good, but wish I could because sometimes I've been known to stay up till 3 or 4 finishing it!
    Sweet looking puppies! And I love your grandson's art.
    Have a great weekend!

  11. We had 90 degree weather today, with 100% humidity. It probably felt worse than your dry 111, but I'm not about to trade!

    I hadn't thought about the coffee in the mornings - it's true for me too! Loved your answers. Have a great weekend.

  12. one of the first things I do in the AM to is make a pot of coffee

  13. Your grandchildren must fill up your heart!! Cant wait for my turn at grandmotherhood! The puppies are adorable. What are they?
