Time for #5JoysFriday @DebinHawaii

1. Cats went to their yearly check-up and their both fine.
2. Ordered a locally handmade sports bra (mostly to support queer start-ups) and it's perfect!
3. Not special to most of you: a customer payed in USD and I saw a real 20 Dollar note for the first time in my life 😂
4. Lovely calls with a dear friend and a surprise call from my mother 💖
5. Actually managed to read 50 pages yesterday evening.

This was such a cute and heartwarming read!

The story is told in dual timelines, one set in 1987 and the other in the 1930s/1940s. The dual timelines was executed well.

As for the characters, I loved the three main characters, Harlow, Matt, and Tuesday. Harlow was my favorite. I enjoyed seeing her character grow and take charge of her life.

I‘m a day late with my #5JoysFriday post as it‘s been a week. But better late than never & there were joys in this crazy busy work week:

1. Ongoing is my dill pickle flavor craze.😋On their own, these rice cakes are a bit strong & more like than love, but add cheese or dip & the 🥒💚 blooms.

2. A somewhat rainy day meant for a beautiful sunset in my backyard.🌅

3. Blueberry muffins that are almost more berry than muffin bring me joy!🫐💙


DebinHawaii 4. I love word origins & food so I‘m finding joy in this fun book tagged below.🥬💚

5. I survived my first week in my new role! There‘s a lot to learn to get up to speed but overall I‘ve been met with kindness & did a big project presentation that went over well & there‘s joy in that. 💛

I‘ll be around soon to see all the joy posts! 🤗
