I Love Thursday #59 – Back to Normal
This is our 59th 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.
A basket full of quilts! Not too long ago, Sue and I went down to the lake front for a photo shoot. It was a nice, cloudy day with a bit of a breeze. I didn’t realize just how many quilts we had to take photos of! A spare clothes basket was plumb full of quilts awaiting the glamour shot ala Wendy.
Winter it here on November 9th! Well, I may not actually love this one whole heartedly. It does look pretty! Initially, we enjoyed snow accumulation on only the grassy surfaces. Wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy that all winter? However, we awoke to a snow covered driveway thanks to the strong wind. I also discovered I need a new shovel, but it worked okay for this light job. Long shadows mean I was up shoveling really early. I’m sure the neighbors wondered what the heck?!! HAHA! It didn’t occur to me until I was done.
Brandy! Look at this cute little princess (her mom’s term which I think is fitting) named Brandy. She proudly wore an “I Voted” sticker on Tuesday. I told her she was a good girl, and I thanked her for doing her civic duty. Unfortunately, her vote didn’t count as it is required that she have a current, up-to-date, Wisconsin issued ID. Her passport wasn’t good enough. Brandy was contemplating moving to another state but I convinced her to just stay here by her peeps. Seriously though, look how cute she looks with her toy laying right there ready to be played with. She fits well within one 12″ tile, cute little girl.
My Grandma’s of New England Coffee Cake! When you drive in to work on voting day and it is rainy, and dark, and nothing is going right but you are trying to stay positive. And then your coworker comes in and says it voting cake day!! Who knew that was even a day – or she may have made that part up?!! We had one or two or three pieces of cake within an hour or so, maybe. Cake makes every day better, doesn’t it?! It alleviates stress, it puts a smile on your face, you get to say yummy, yummy, and allows you to laugh with your boss and coworkers. So very delicious with coffee.
A very, very big LOVE to share. I never heard of this brand before, have you? We even had leftovers to enjoy the dreaded day-after-voting while they tell us what we think, what happened, and what it means to the world. Ugg. Oh – I love my coworkers!! ♥ ♥
Oh dear, it is SO very hard to limit myself to just a few photos of our dear boy Dominic. He does such cute stuff every minute he is awake, that I can hardly choose some weeks. Gosh, such problems to have. Here are my picks for this week and a little explanation about them.
First up, Dominic John reporting for duty in full Cubs regalia. He’s ready for any errands you care to do. Next, yes sir he can walk in his Elmo slippers without issue now. He rather resembles someone carefully walking through puddles. And last, our boy likes to push the button for the stove light as he passes by and make the cupboards squeak. He is fascinated that the light comes on and then goes off when you push the button. Image that! But wait there are more because he came over for a visit on Sunday. We were over the moon! He loves to read his book to Auntie Rose who dotes on every word. Then, we must hold Auntie Sue’s finger while we watch Elmo. Our hearts melted a little bit more. After all of that goodness, he gives an adoring look to Sue for her clever game. Is she having that much fun too?!! The final, final picture is sweetness wearing a new Packer hat even though he doesn’t like hats. ♥ ♥
