Friday Favorite Things

friday favorite things | finding joy
These are a few of my favorite things this week
Grandson coming home from work!  Yeah, he got a job!!!!

Taking the grandson and friends out to eat at PoPo's Mexican Food.  It was this guy's 19th birthday.  He has been a good friend of grandson.
The puppies have learned to sit for treats, they are just like one of the girls now. 
I finally finished my recipe memory book.  This has recipes, pictures, and a wee bit of fun facts about the cooks.  This was a new scrapbook that I found at a used book store, so I altered it to fit my purpose.
A sample set of pages 
Wild onion blooming in a tub by my front porch
Wind in the grass out front
And finally a new pedicure.  Yummy lavender color reminds we of cool  spring days.


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.       There never seems to be _cookies in the cookie jar, I just can't figure where they disappear to overnight (couldn't be a midnight snack for the grandson, could it?)
2.       I love to _make memory books.  I just finished one that I had been planning for a long time.  See pictures above.
3.       I could _be_ outta _ice tea--it was a hot day today.
4.       The last time I _looked_, _I only had a quarter of tank of gas,  it sure does go fast and I get 35 mpg.  Maybe I need to stay home more often.


  1. I hear ya about gas. I love the recipe book. For about a hundred years I went crazy with recipes. I couldn't organize them well and they were all over the house -- honestly! Then Google came to town. I put them on a blog and voila! There's a tab on my home page if you'd like to venture through it. I love recipes. I don't cook much but I love recipes.

  2. Gas is killer. It is however, tough to stop being a never stay at home person.

  3. Cookies don't last long around here, either with two guys in the house. I call DH my Cookie Monster.

  5. When my daughter is home the cookies are gone! Your memory recipe book looks lovely and it looks like you put a lot of love and work into it :)

  6. What cute dogs! I love your favorite things list. I totally can relate to the job thing when our kids got their jobs. Hopping from Finding Joy.

  7. Congrats to your grson for getting a job....not an easy feat in today's market. Are you sure YOU aren't getting up and sleepwalking and eating the cookies? lol
