Thankful Friday and Saturday (2 November & 3 November)

Last night I went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and saw The Colour Theory perform. I am not a big jazz fan, but I do like watching the local performers at the Art Museum and this group did not disappoint! I am thankful for the programming The Philadelphia Museum of Art offers and I am glad to be a member.

As I was waiting for the bus, I met someone named Jose and he was interesting (in a good way) guy to chat with. He was all kindness and we chatted for a good 15 minutes. Of course, selfie time! I have to print this for my Happiness Box since I have quite the collection of selfies with kind individuals I meet. I am thankful for everyone I encounter and befriend along the way.


Autumn has finally arrived and according to our weather station here, this is the best colour of the season in a good 10 years since we had a wet and humid summer. It has been windy, but I’ve been taking advantage of the time I have to get pictures!

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I’m happy to know you enjoyed the jazz combo The Colour Theory as they performed at one of your favorite venues, the Philadelphia Museum of Art. You always manage to meet friendly people in your travels. Maybe it’s because you are friendly and smile easily. That attracts people. Your Happiness Box is filling up with selfies taken with friendly strangers, the latest being Jose, the guy at the bus stop.

    Thanks for showing me autumn splendor around your area. I see nothing even close to that down here. It takes until January for our leaves to change color and there aren’t nearly as many deciduous trees down here, only palms. Therefore I am always happy to see pictures of fall leaves on your blog.

    Have a wonderful week, dear friend JM!
