I Love Thursday #14 – First for 2018
This is our #14 list of our loves for the week and it happens to be the first for 2018. LeeAnna blogs at Not Afraid of Color and shares her ‘likes’ every Thursday. She is getting all settled in her new home! Several of our friends also share on a weekly basis – check them out!
As much as I love decorating for Christmas – and I really do! – I love having my living room back again. It is familiar yet I have the furniture moved around a bit. It is nice and clean because I vacuum like crazy after taking the tree down. It’s almost like a little winter cleaning without doing the windows. ~smile~
Coffee in my new Dominic mug! It is just adorable – it has all my favorite pictures of D since his birth. I’ve also been trying a few new flavors of coffee, like Coconut Caramel and Blueberry Pancake. Both of those are from Dunkin’ Donuts and aren’t bad. Do you like flavored coffees? How about additives? My two favorite creamers are Almond Joy and Vanilla Caramel . . . just thinking of them . . . yum!
Book series . . . from the beginning. I recall both of my sisters and sister-in-law reading David Baldacci but I didn’t fall for the goodness. I stumbled upon the Memory Man when a coworker gave me the book last year, and then read all those books. Then I thought, hmm. He has other characters I might like as well. So now I’m working my way through the Will Robie series – The Innocent and The Fix so far. Nice long reads – I like 500 page books! With the latest release in November there are five books in this series and he has five other characters to read eventually.
Calendars of all sorts. Back in the day – wayyyy back – I had a leather day planner. A new one for every year. It had a place to keep weekly and daily notes, a place for to-do and don’t-forgets, and a place to set new goals. I love those planners. Now all those fabulous planners have been replaced with technology, but I still use a desk calendar/blotter. It has puppies on it; Border Collies for January. A nice new page and puppy for each month.
The Amazing Race! It’s back on – it aired last night. I haven’t watched it – that’s what DVRs are for. I have always wanted to do this race. We often make reference to it, and the family addition would have been perfect for us. Do you pick your team?! We do . . . ~smile~
I love this baby more than words can say. Sue calls him my sweet boy . . . oh, and he is. Here he is looking quite dashing at his four month mark, sitting in his big boy chair. It won’t be long for spring training, right?!
That’s it for this week! I hope your week is filled with many blessings. [LeeAnna and Diann, I haven’t forgotten to send you the mocha cheesecake recipe! I have just been too lazy to find it and type it for you, but I promise I will. ~smile~ Roseanne]
