Thankful Thursday 5/12/2016

It's that time of week again! Thankful Thursday! I'm thankful for the nice time mom and I spent on Mother's Day. We had brunch at Granite Hill, a restaurant in the Philadelphia Museum of Art; and then toured the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The rain also stopped for the day, though it was very windy. When we finished touring the Art Museum, we walked around the Parkway to get pictures of me with the international flags (The Ben Franklin Parkway hangs flags from all of the countries). We also walked to Rittenhouse Square and ended our day with the Reading Terminal Market. Very nice day out.

Wow, that's very lopsided!

Because who doesn't love Norway?

Yep, we've been getting a lot of rain...

Wind blown.

Mom and I with Felix the Cat.

I'll be sad when International Pop! is gone. Last day is Sunday.

Because Ghost will always be my favorite mobile.

Rain Cloud.

These two images describe me perfectly. I really would like to visit these countries.

I cropped this image and it will be my author photo.

What are you thankful for today?


  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I'm happy to know you and your mother spent some quality time together for Mother's Day. It looks like you were bundled up. It's in the high 80s down here now but the humidity has remained mercifully low, making it pleasant enough to enjoy the outdoors a few more days before the unbearable heat chases us indoors for several months. I would love to see that international pop exhibit. Mrs. Shady and are thankful to have a few days off work so that we can travel around and visit some new to us places in Florida.

    Have a safe and happy weekend, dear friend JM!

    1. Hi Shady!

      It turned out to be warm that day - 68 - but earlier in the week it was cold and rainy. We both were warm once the sun was fully out. Although it was windy, I was happy about the nice weather.

      Have fun! That always sounds fun! Where are you planning to go? I'm about to write a poem or two about my trip to Fort Lauderdale in 2004 - that was the last time I was in Florida!

      Thank you, you too dear friend!

    2. At this moment I am writing to you from Disney World!

    3. Nice! I have never been there!
