5 Things Friday

     I'm participating in the 5 things Friday linkup for the first time this week, and I am thankful for Rain (it's been dry here for weeks on end and we finally got some good rain showers to quench the earth's thirst and cool things down.  I'm thankful that I am on a staycation for a week and get to enjoy my sewing room and garden.
     We'll be helping my son and his small family move and I am thankful that I will get to spend time with my son, his wife and my baby grandson.  I'm thankful that I have a job with wonderful employers and coworkers.
     I am thankful for the abundance of local fresh food available at this time of the year and that we have the means to afford it.

And here are my 5 smile photos

After reading Stephanie's comment I thought i should explain the above photo.  It's rain water in the carrier on the trike.  the toys are symbolic of my grandson although he is way to young to use any of them yet.

      Thanks to Amanda at the Gypsy Moon Quilt Company for hosting this linkup.



  1. Lisa... what is going on in that first photo? I'm guessing it's related to your grandson. That flowering plant is so pretty. So glad you're participating in the 5 things posts, it's such a great time to take a pause and think about what is good. Have a great weekend!!!

  2. It's rain water in the carrier at the back of the trike. We got the trike and the slide from family friends but Gabriel is way to young for them now.

  3. We're glad to get rid of some of the rain, it has barely stopped! Glad to send some your way. I really like the plant and cherry photos, so charming. 😊

  4. The cherries look absolutely delicious!

  5. Happy first Five Things Friday, Lisa! Thanks so much for linking up! Nothing better than a much needed good rain, especially on a hot day. Being a Florida native, I feel your joy! So many wonderful things to be happy about this week. Thank you for sharing! Hope you have a wonderful time visiting with your family. Enjoy your weekend!

  6. Wonderful Lisa! Those cherries look very delicious, I will be on the hunt this weekend for some at the farmer's market. Happy weekend!
