I Love Thursday #20
Wowee! This is our #20 love list for the week. We are back to our usual Thursday post this week. LeeAnna and occasionally her poodle Milo blog at Not Afraid of Color and shares her/their ‘likes’ every Thursday. Several of our friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out!
Note: If you haven’t already, be sure to visit our blogiversary post where you can enter to win our giveaway. It ends tomorrow night (Friday) at midnight.
Finding a penny! I have always heard from a child on, “find a penny, pick it up and all day you’ll have good luck.” As an adult, I learned the additional value that an angel or spirit was telling you that you are loved or valued. I ran in to two pennies in one day – a rarity since I mostly walk a short distance from my car into work. They were both heads up. Next time you find a penny or coin maybe you’ll find comfort knowing someone you love is thinking of you. If it’s facedown flip it over for someone else to find.
Need to Know by Karen Cleveland. I just finished this book, and I could hardly put it down. I got it from the library and read it in three days . . . it was one of those that I would think about at work, wondering how it was going to wrap up and where it was going. And the ending!! Holy moly! I never saw that coming. I guess it’s on the best whatever list. I would highly recommend it, and it is her first book. I sure hope she has plans for a follow up as there is a little cliffhanger going on. It is about a CIA intelligence agent and Russian spies . . . I’ll leave it at that. ~smile~
Advanced stretching. I’ve moved on to stretching my calf and heels on stairs now. You know, you hang your heel off the edge of a step and drop them down slowly. The stretch in your calf is great and doing it slowly doesn’t cause any damage. I believe that is one of the best stretches I’ve felt so far and may be the key to getting plantar fasciitis gone for good. Well, this time anyway.
Snow days! Our district called a snow day (our first in several years) and they changed their policy. This was the first time in over 30 years working in a school district that the closing included admin/office staff. Yippee! I didn’t have to waste a vacation day to stay home warm and safe. We had eight days of snow – I think everyone around here was welcoming our current five day break.
Since yesterday was the special day for love, I thought it would be appropriate to share a love filled photo from Dominic. He and his momma hope you had a fabulous Valentine’s Day. ~smile~ And someone got his first Valentine in the mail from his friends with a doggy on it. ♥
That’s it for this week! I hope your week is filled with many blessings. Happy Thursday!
