Thursday – Things I Love #6
Here are a couple of the things I love for the week. Now that I am more aware, these weekly posts aren’t difficult to write at all. I have so many loves to note, I have to edit them and pick and choose. Lee Anna blogs at Not Afraid of Color and she posts a celebration all of her ‘likes’ for the week on Thursday. You may want to join us as there is always room for more people sharing their likes. Read about her likes and then check out those of our friends – they will make you ~smile~. It is rather addictive looking for all the positives once you get started.
I love birthday cake and cupcakes. They don’t even have to be ‘birthday’ per se – anniversary, wedding, shower cakes or cupcakes are equally delicious to me. My parents were HUGE lovers of ice cream. The lick-the-bowl-clean or at the very least, scrape-it-clean kind of lovers. Ice cream is okay. I would cross the street for some but not as quickly as cake. How about you – are you a cake lover? Oh, and in case you were wondering what flavor – I’ve never met a cake I didn’t like. HAHA! Not only do I love birthday CAKE but also CARDS, especially when they’re the very first one from a certain young great-nephew. Look at those little toes . . . OMG! P.S. he l.o.v.e.d the whole green paint experience. ~giggle~
I am the end of the The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. It is really good, but not my usual mystery/lawyer genre and I’m going to be sorry to finish it. I think I mentioned that I also have Addicted to Scraps by Bonnie Hunter. I’m beginning to think I’m not a scraps kind of quilter. I love seeing other people’s scrap quilt but I have yet to see a pattern that I like for them. They all look too busy or something – I can’t quite put my finger on it. Nothing screamed you-HAVE-to-make-this from her book. ~shrug~ And speaking of books, Janet Evanovich is releasing Hardcore Twenty-Four in her Stephanie Plum series on November 14th. Yippee!
Going to the movies! We rarely go see movies in the movie theatre – James Bond always draws us out, as does Mission Impossible and a few select others. It was fun to see the new Beauty and the Beast movie last year with some additional back story included. This weekend we will be going to see Murder on the Orient Express. The trailers look fun, I love those recliner seats, and theatre popcorn!! That’s a real treat. ~smile~
This package of goodies recently arrived in the mail from Brooke at Silly Mama Quilts. Brooke has a random give-away twice a week for those that comment on her blog, and I happened to win one week! She sent some really cool fabric to update my stash, some Moda pattern cards for several different blocks, and these really cute zipper pulls for my jacket . . . but would love to know their designed purpose if it is other than a pull. If you would let me know by leaving a comment?!
One last big-time love of Dominic. He was watching football with Dad. Apparently something very exciting or tense was ensuing based on their complete absorption in the game. He decided this is the only way he will sit now – he wants to see what’s going on. HAHA – this boy cracks me up and makes me count my blessings.
