Honestly The Wyrmling could take up all 5 spots, but I whittled down to 2: 1.) he‘s 2 now!!! And 2.) he‘s sitting front facing in the car. His smile is so infectious. 🥰
3. I received the kindest/most inspirational comment on one of my fanfictions. Knowing my writing has actually helped someone through hard times is extremely humbling.
4. I‘ve saved up enough to purchase my dream BJD! She‘ll be mine soon. ❤️
5. We‘re watching Baki Hanma on ⬇️

MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Netflix and my anime husband has made some appearances. 😍

Hey Everyone!! Sorry this is a day late. 1) my faith as always 2) my mom and her laugh - even in her sleep- it scared me though because sometimes she has nightmares. When she woke up she said she was dreaming about the peach 🍑 pie we made lol 3) we made a peach pie 🥧 lol 4) The Popeye the Sailor cartoons that come on about 10pm that my mom loves- some of them are older than she is! Lol 5) my mom isn‘t bothered by the heat that much so far 🙏🏽

Mimi28 6) That I can laugh now that I got attacked by a cicada in the suburbs where my mom had her mammogram on Friday. ( please 🙏🏽 the results are normal) Those things are huge and loud and can hop and fly long distances! It got caught in the hood of my jacket and I threw my jacket down and it escaped. 7) that my phone didn‘t crack when I threw my jacket down 🙏🏽🙏🏽 #5joysFridays @DebinHawaii 4d
Mimi28 One more thing - that the neighbors are starting to do fireworks and it is not bothering me as much as it used to. Heck, when I lived on the west side of Chicago they would start in March so 3 weeks before the 4th of July is a huge improvement, lol 😂 4d
LiseWorks Yay for Peach 🍑 🥧 and you got away from the Cicada 4d
DebinHawaii Lovely list of joys! 💛💛💛 Peach pie 🍑🥧 sounds pretty amazing! Thanks for sharing & spreading the joy! 🤗 3d

Daisey @Lesliereadsalot They‘re a guilty pleasure for me. One drink should not cost that much, but I love them. 🥤 3d
Daisey @Ruthiella @dabbe They make me smile every day. They have collars to keep them in the yard and sit there together watching and waiting as I walk up the driveway. 3d

A little late with my #5JoysFriday list. I got back yesterday from Oregon with unfortunately a relapse in bronchitis or other gunk the last few days. Probably the universe‘s way of telling me to slow down & not travel. Anyway I slept & feel a bit better but moving slowly & behind on everything.😬

But still… there was lots of joy this past week.
1) My trip to Oregon could probably count as 5. Beautiful weather & lots of family time + a good ⬇️

DebinHawaii … work conference even if I wasn‘t feeling the best during it. My quick PDX feet shot.😉
2. Staying at my sister‘s property & house with the afternoon iced coffee bar & wildlife in the yard & seeing her orchard including the peach trees.
DebinHawaii … 3. So much great food enjoyed over the week & especially good NW salmon. Yes I eat salmon in Hawaii but it hits differently in the PNW.
4. My hotel in Eugene had key cards with Oregon graduates/celebrities on it & I got a Sam Elliot key that I kept. He is pre-mustache Sam but still 😘

DebinHawaii …5. I got the ARC for the next book (#19)in the Bakeshop Mystery Series. It & a good punny title (Sticks and Scones) bring me joy.
I will be around soon to see all the joy lists I missed which always brings me extra joy! 💛💛💛

Time for #5JoysFriday! Things that brought me joy this week:

1. Time with family! (On the left: my sister with her grandbaby, who is smiling at my dad)
2. Big band jazz concert on Saturday—that‘s my husband on the right, playing sax
3. Successfully figuring out the streaming setup at church to broadcast my husband‘s piano service on Tuesday
4. Finishing the last book from my most recent too-large library haul (tagged) ⤵️

BarbaraJean And… 5. Picking up holds at my local library again! (They haven‘t been accepting hold requests for the last couple months—I‘ve had to drive across town to a different branch) 5d

Sace I wish I knew the trick to growing and keeping lavender alive. I bought a lavender plant once and it did not thrive. 😢 5d
Judybskt @Sace I‘m not sure there‘s a secret! I‘ve had this one for probably 28 years! 5d
Sace @Judybskt I‘m jealous and in awe of your lavender prowess. (I seem to be doing ok with a rosemary plant I picked up at the garden center though 😂) 5d
DebinHawaii A lovely list of joys! 💛💛💛 Love all the flowers & garden pics! 🌼Thanks for sharing & spreading the joy! 🤗 3d
