I Love Thursday #93 Fun Times
This is the 93rd 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.
Beach covers! Andrea asked Sue and me if we could make sweet boy, Dominic, a beach cover. She said a friend had a towel with a circle cut into it for the head to pop through, and then a hood to go on the head. Sure, we could make one easily. OR, Auntie Sue can check out Bed, Bath and Beyond’s website. She found a beach cover for only $7.99, and we all know a good, thick towel costs about that much or more. So, I linked over from my Ebates/Rakuten account and bought one or three. Just like that because that’s how we roll.
One cover features sharks, another a Super Hero and since we cannot forget sweet girl, a mermaid towel. Very similar to the cute outfit Barbara made for her before she was born! She already has a matching swim hat that is a little too big.
Late-breaking update with some really, really, really cute kiddos (unbiased comment) in their new beach coverups. Look at that sweet girl hanging on to the chair with her wet hair looking so stylish. Our own little superhero and mermaid – LOVE! ♥ ♥
Auntie love! Feeding off the above items, here is the quintessential picture representing Sue and me when the littles are over. Dominic playing the no-you-can’t-go-away game, and Addison watching closely so she knows how to play when she’s a little older. Can’t tell we love these two, can you?!
Moose! It has been hot in Anchorage, Alaska too. Sometimes, a moose has to do what a moose has to do. This video was shot on July 9, 2019. I just love how he is chill (literally and figuratively), enjoying the sprinkler and drinking the water. While moose can be dangerous, I totally respect them and think they are beautiful beasts. Enjoy the video and know that this is exactly what Sue and I wanted to be doing during the recent hot spell. Truth. Plus this video is pretty darn funny – there is a longer version if you want to see it.
Winter experiments flourishing! My winter plant experiments from last winter are happily flourishing in full sunshine. Planted in a fairly big pot, you can see they have more than doubled from when I received them for my birthday in October. The Gerber daisy is a gift from May and it also has been happily reblooming often.
I did pull all that pesty grass from the Gerber pot – how annoying. I am really wondering if the mums on the right will be the same colors as they were when originally given to me. They sure were pretty, especially the striped one.
Quilters Through the Generations! A blogger friend, Melva, has been interviewing well known and perhaps not so well known quilters, asking them how they got involved/started with this addiction. Melva Loves Scraps is the name of her blog, and I’ll just bet you’ll recognize some of her interviewees. Perhaps you’ll even want to raise your hand to share your story along with some of your ancestors. My friend, Susan Nixon was recently interviewed and I was completely surprised to learn she’s a gamer. I hope you check out the link! Melva usually publishes these interesting tales on Saturdays.
Addison and Dominic visited the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum associated with Discovery World this week. It’s in downtown Milwaukee and Auntie Sue tagged along for the fun time. Sue also snagged some good photos starting with our little Scientist. Dominic went down the big slide by himself, and they both enjoyed and listened well during Tot Time. We attempted a selfie of wanna-be-Team-Gray during Friday’s babysitting session. Addi had to be changed out of her gray onesie after sharing some bodily fluids with Auntie Rose. ~smile~ Three of us had gray t-shirts on! Dominic showed momma how to slamdunk a basketball quite nicely, while Addison stretched her way out of falling asleep for a nap. Fresh-faced babies after a bath are just the best, aren’t they?? Finally, Addison was ready to drop Cookie Monster for Oscar and Grover . . . once she took her brother’s shades off. ♥ ♥ ♥
