I Really Love Thursday #35
This is our 35th post of things we love for the week. We post these likes 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.
Memorial Day. In the USA we celebrated Memorial Day this past Monday. This signifies many different things for us. It is finally time to plant your garden without worry of a freeze per the Farmer’s Almanac in Zone 5. For many, it is a day off work to enjoy a cookout with family and friends or just sleeping in and being lazy.
For me, it is a day to reflect on several family members and friends who have served our nation and are no longer here to celebrate. One special guy died just about a year ago, and I find myself thinking of him so often. Perhaps even more than I did when he was here, and I wish I had spent more time with him. He was one my favorite Veterans. I have to share the photo again, where he is waiting for his Babes at the end of this pier. ~smile~
School countdown. Do you remember being in school and counting down the last few days of school? The promise of summer vacation held such a high place in my thoughts and other classmates. Now that I have worked in a school district for over 25 years, it still is special and I work year round! You can feel the anticipation in the air, and everyone is in a good mood. Our school lets out one hour early on the last day, which coincides with my departure time. On that one day, I cannot leave because of the car lane blocking all parked cars. But the delay is minimal because once the final bell rings and the kiddos all scream, they all clear out very quickly. I love my job!
Can you stand one last picture of Spring with the pretty blooming trees and tulips?! This is what I enjoyed each day going into work at a school. I love this view!
News for Sue! I love how Sue (!!) reads this blog to find out what’s going on. That just cracks me up – I do have a weird sense of humor sometimes. For example, she suggested that I order the EQ8 book on how to learn the software. She has off for the summer very soon and offered to read the book. I interpret that to mean SHE is going to not only read the book but also learn the software. Is that how you would interpret that gesture? I also want to learn it and get the Jigsaw baby quilt into a formal pattern. That is a real goal for me for this calendar year!
One more quote! Because this one was just too profound to not share. I loved JFK or at least what he stood for since I didn’t know him personally. I was 5 when he died.
Roseanne giggle. I overheard this at work yesterday: Did you know Roseanne was fired? WHAT?!!!!!!! Why? She tweeted something racially unfriendly. ROSEANNE did? That doesn’t sound like her at all. Roseanne Barr. Oh yeah, that doesn’t surprise me. Phew – I’m glad to know it wasn’t me. We just happen to spell our first name the same way. I’m not even sure who had the name first . . . I say she is named after me and leave it at that.
This is the smile that grandma (Sue’s sister, Janice) got from Dominic when she suggested he take a nap. No grandma, let’s play instead. Here’s my most winningest smile to convince you. Do you think it worked or not?
That’s it for this week! We hope your week is filled with many blessings. Happy Thursday!
