A List of Little Loves

In the midst of another whirlwind week, I am pausing to give thanks for the little blessings.  Friday Fave Fives with Susanne, as usual.

1.  Happiness is sitting quietly watching the glowing pink and turquoise sunset.

2.  Happiness is also sitting quietly with a morning cup of warm coffee and watching the sunrise.

3.  Happiness is rain in the weekend weather forecast.  Here's hoping!  (I NEVER thought I'd EVER write that!)

4.  Happiness is proficient and careful workers: dry waller, plumber, electrician, cement pourer and brick layer.

5.  Happiness is anticipation of a week to spend with my grandson The New Boy.

A bit of knitting therapy.  Gryffindor House scarf.

And tea with a friend.

Happy Weekend.  I hope you can find a list of little loves, too.

Sunsets and sunrises: a great blessing indeed! Hope you get that rain your wanting and needing. Finding good craftsmen is a real blessing. Enjoy that time with your grandson!

Hope you get the much-needed rain! We can't often see the sunset and sunrise from our house, but I love when I am out during that time to see the beautiful colors.

Good workmen are a treasure.

Have fun with your grandson!

I did NOT expect that portrait of your tea friend!

Was sorry to hear about the mudslides, but every little fraction-of-inch of rain is welcome.

I have especially loved the sunrises and sunsets this October. My phone has so many pictures captured of these moments!
I love your happiness list! :)

I love your list of little loves!

It's those kind of things that make life rich and full.

Have fun with your grandson. I just found out I can spend time this month with my grands, too.

(I'm late getting to stop by but I never like to miss FFF.)

Willow, I'm back... was looking around your blogs to try and find this pattern for the scarf. My son would love this! Is this something you could share with me at my blog

Lovely post! I especially your tea friend. I hope you got your rain. Have a lovely day.

I hope you do get the rain you need there, Willow! We had a very rainy summer--very unlike Colorado. Now it has been unseasonably mild this autumn--no snow as yet, which is also odd for this time of the year at this altitude.

Enjoy your week with your grandson! I had my two sleep over last weekend--it was fun and exhausting--lol!

What beautiful faves! I love rain weekday or weekend :) And wow! the Gryffindor scarf! I wish I could find one of those for sale.

P.S. Sorry I'm late. My internet was acting up.

You wrote about little loves last week and I wrote about little beauties this week :)

Hope you're having a marvelous time with your grandson. And I'm assuming that scarf just might be for him! It's lovely!

Happy weekend Willow!
