I Love Thursday #160 Abundant Blessings
This is the 160th 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.
New Employee! During the Prime Day hoopla, I actually succumbed to shopping for the first time. I wasn’t really LOOKING for anything special as they weren’t featuring fabric, batting, or thread. I happened to see an iRobot and started thinking about that. Hmm. Of course, much further research was involved. In the end, I chose a Roborock mainly because of its good reviews.
Here is our new employee chasing Sue’s Mom. Seriously, wherever she sat it quickly followed to vacuum under her feet. I love our new employee! It does a suburb job, it can easily move from wood to vinyl, to carpet, and it knows when it is getting low on its battery charge. It has mapped the entire house plus I’ve figured out how to do zone cleaning. Plus, it has the option to do wet mopping although we probably won’t try that. I ask myself, why did I wait so long to jump on this bandwagon? We pick up rugs now just because, plus the wires underneath my sewing table get pulled taut. It got stuck the first time because I never thought about the wires – never fear, we could it out without an OSHA fine or warning.
Aunt Jeanette! My Aunt turned 101 on Monday, November 9th. While we couldn’t gather together to celebrate her and her long life, we did send oodles of cards and messages. My cousin arrived at 9 am that Monday, and she was all ready for her complete with her pearls. She is an amazing woman that still has all of her facilities and lives alone.
A few giggles! This cute little puppy’s face just reflects so well his annoyance with his peeps. I think there may be some days that I look like that, too, although now the mask hides it. There’s a good reason to wear a mask beyond the common-sense justification that we’re in the midst of a pandemic.
Oh, the card catalog. I remember fondly looking for reference materials all throughout my school career but especially during my younger days. I volunteered to work in the school library during middle school, returning books and reshelving them. I sure would like to get my hands on a small set of these just to use as a side table and to store treasures for our littles.
SpaceX launch! The private business, SpaceX, launched its second space mission to the International Space Station. A crew of four astronauts departed Cape Canaveral, FL on Sunday. The crew named its capsule Resilience, which is quite fitting for this rocky 2020 year in many respects. One Japanese team member joins three Americans as the private company’s second team due to arrive on Monday after a 27.5 hour journey. The company is hoping to establish a regular rotation for launches, an potentially exciting possibility for science research. I would have LOVED to be able to join one of these teams when I was younger. Oh, the different path my life would have taken.
Our littles! Baby Colt just turned 8-months-old and is such a joy to be around. He now officially weighs more than Addison. We’re trying to fatten that girl up! Colt shows Dominic that he can count his eyes, too. He’s just a bit more hands-on when counting! Colt and Addison can work together when it comes to enjoying Puffs. All is good, especially when there is enough for ALL and juice is nearby.
Addison LOVES using the shopping cart to move her babies around from location to location, like to her crib for a nap. Meanwhile, Dominic is very busy coloring with markers (Addison can’t use them because she puts them in her mouth). Shortly, big brother Dominic was able to ask, how can I help you with your cart, ma’am? I’ll assist you at any time – it’s my job. A good end to the day is a bath with bubbles. Addison is clearly in charge of the cup as noted by Dominic’s wet hair. I suspect, dear boy and brother-to-be, that it will remain that way for the rest of her life. We adore our littles.
