I’m staying with some friends after being unexpectedly displaced from a housing situation. All will be well, and in the meantime I am finding some delightful reasons to enjoy my temporary neighborhood. Architectural treasures abound, a new coffee shop is a block away (and latkes are on the menu!), and this sweet lending library is literally just around the corner. As much as I am eager to get into my own digs in another week, I admit that I will miss being in an area where my soul is awash in a certain kind of joy.
For today’s Friday Five, share with us five things that bring you joy in your neighborhood (past and/or present).

Friday Play Devotions: Current Local Joys
1. a local thrift store which is a God-send and is organized very well and a joy to browse. (It benefits the humane society)
2. The Germantown Indoor pool which looks like a play jungle and has a toddler slide and mushroom shower and a jacuzzi next to kiddie pool and flumes. It costs $8 to get in, but well worth the money…and it has lifeguards and is clean and well-managed.
3. Wonder Book and Video (used book store nearby)
4. Two local playgrounds nearby.
5. Our local Safeway which is a short drive away
Sounds like sources of joy abound for you and yours. I’m so glad! Thanks for playing today.
