I Love Thursday #43
This is our 43rd 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.
Don’t miss the free pattern for a mug rug that we shared on Monday, along with a great blog hop ongoing through tomorrow.
Perfect quilts! My friend, Rosalie, is making a quilt for a friend of her son. She has known Mark since he was a young boy. He is now on the verge of being a father, and she thought this would be the perfect quilt. Both parents are music enthusiasts, as he enjoys the trombone and she is a flutist. Rosalie made the quilt from black and white HSTs and then added some appropriate music symbols. The backing is black with colorful music notes, and this whole project just makes me happy.
Rain! We had been in a throngs of a moderate draught, but relief came on Friday. I haven’t heard the official measurement, but I would suspect we received more than two inches. Slowly, over three days and two nights we received wonderful rain. Never too much but rather just the perfect amounts that the ground would easily absorb. Almost like there was a greater power at work, making the corn grow higher and plumping up our tomatoes. I didn’t go dancing in the rain but did dodge some raindrops while getting a hair cut.
SUVs. I drive a hybrid Toyota Camry most days to work. It gets great gas mileage (44 mpg), and has a large gas tank which were the two most important requirements for my car. It often boggles my mind that a larger, mid-sized car can get better mileage than its smaller counterpoints, but whatever. In the summer, I sometimes drive Sue’s SUV. I really enjoy that because it allows me to sit higher than my Camry and see over traffic ahead of me. If they would only design a high efficiency SUV, I would be very interested in giving it a try. I like the idea of a smaller energy footprint, but I also like the safety that a larger vehicle provides. Maybe in my lifetime an affordable vehicle like that will exist!
Dominic is still being a BIG help to his dad on Sunday, a.k.a. coupon day. Here is a sweet photo of the two of them cutting some out. Dad is still in charge of the scissors, much to Dominic’s dismay. He likes to be a big help!
That’s it for this week! We hope your week is filled with many blessings. Happy Thursday!
