I Love Thursday #128 Abundant Blessings
This is the 128th post of things we love for the week. We post these loves each Thursday along with LeeAnna on her blog at Not Afraid of Color. Several additional friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out. You will surely find something to inspire you.
A working kitchen faucet! I went to turn on our kitchen faucet one morning, and the single-control handle came off in my hand. Hmm. That does not seem correct! I’ve never had the control lever in my hand before. Sue headed off for YouTube and after studying it for a bit we had the lever in place before you could say the word plumber.
Boy, the things you take for granted like a kitchen faucet. Handily enough we had an Allen-wrench just the right size!
Bulbs! Our daffodils are a little bit behind this year but I suspect they’ll be opening up soon with the slightly warmer weather we are having. Not a single below-freezing night insight for the next 10 days, according to the weatherman. Also confused and either really early or late is my Christmas cactus. It sent out a pretty, good-sized blossom this month. That’s a first! Plus, I just spied a second blossom – that must be one pretty darn confused Christmas cactus.
Prime-exclusive! “Making the Cut” with Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum is a new show exclusively on Amazon Prime. I mention this especially for LeeAnna as I know she enjoys Project Runway just as much as we do (and a few other reality TV shows). Have you seen it? They promote it as a design show rather than a sewing show – they even offer the designers a seamstress who works overnight for them. I guess new shows will be added every Friday with March 27th the first week. We’ll definitely keep watching.
Colt! Just a few pictures of our newest great-nephew. I looked back at how often I shared photos of Dominic . . . way back when. He was just about a year when I started the slide show – I couldn’t help myself with all the cute things he was doing. This stay-at-home-order is severely limiting our spoil-Colt-time. But we’ll make up for lost time as soon as we are able to – we want him and his parents to be safe.
Sweet pea is wide awake and has figured out day from night now. We are wondering if he’s going to have blue eyes??? Maybe so . . . we’ll see.
Addison and Dominic are used to going out and about, visiting GG, Zeus, and Gamma at the very least. Andrea did her best to keep them engaged and learning, and Auntie Sue spent some learning time with them as well. Having a painting party after work was up first. Addison gave the non-toxic paint a good taste test, and we think Andrea is a saint. She said the kitchen floor needed to be washed anyway and it was bath night! Then Auntie Sue showed Dominic (and Addison) how to pop bubbles to reveal the items that start with a “C”. Everyone was engrossed in that game, but not too much to pose for a sweet photo of my loves.
Dominic loves to ride the tricycle even if it is a bit too small for him now, and he’ll even give his sister a push. Hang on Addison! He jumps on the trampoline now without even needing the guardrail. Addison has taken over momma’s ‘purse’ that she used in clinical as her own and models it quite cutely. Finally, Addison gets some quality air time thanks to dad. She loves to play the throw-me-in-the-air-and-catch-me game. The belly laughs that ensue are quite infectious. I had to capture it in a video. ~smile~
