Friday Bliss List

This week has been unusually hot with temps over 100.  But despite the heat there have been several moments of bliss to celebrate!

My Friday Bliss List:

1.  I am so thankful for electricity and central air conditioning!  This may sound silly, but I'm actually very thankful for these things.  They provided some much needed bliss this week!

2. Our neighborhood 4th of July celebration is amazing every year.  Tons of people come to watch the parade and then gather afterward in the park for a giant community picnic.  Despite the heat, a lot of people came out to celebrate.

Students from our local high school's Junior ROTC.

3.  Rain!  As I write, the rain and cooler temps are finally moving into the cities.  Not only do our plants, trees and grass need the rain, so do the people.

4. My 14 year-old daughter and I have been spending a lot of time chillin' together.  We've been to a movie, shopping, and reading together.  Yesterday afternoon we started a Lord of the Rings marathon, which continues today.  I love Mom/Daughter time!

Can Legolas be any cuter?

5. My garden can be described as eclectic and a bit wild.  But, despite my lack of overall planning, some beautiful plants have been growing this summer.  This week the daisies were in full bloom, a variety of lilies opened, and the hibiscus has several buds about to burst!

What gave you a little bliss this week?

  1. Sigh. I miss the Hibiscus. Somehow, I don't think they would flourish so well in Northern Nevada!

    1. I love Hibiscus too. I bet it would do alright in Nevada if it can survive in Minnesota. But, it won't be as abundant as the Southern hibiscus for sure!
