I Love Thursday #95
This is the 95th 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.
Big Boy locomotive! Big Boy steam locomotive #4014 passed through Racine county recently. The Union Pacific train was participating in the Great Race Across the Midwest as part of the anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad in 1869. The train passed just blocks from our house, and Sue’s stepdad is a huge train enthusiast.
Signs of Summer! My boss shared this appealing little .jpg picture with me in a newsletter, and I thought it was so cute. It just screams summer and having fun while staying cool. I’ll bet a certain sweet boy would like to get his choppers on one of these. His sister, too, probably since she is teething – that would feel good on her gums.
Italian Fest fireworks! Our local Italian community hosts a festival each year. We are blessed to have diversity so we can sample foods and enjoy customs different from our own. Fireworks are a fun part of Italian Fest and a friend took this photo capturing them along with our USA flag. It was a beautiful night to enjoy the fireworks.
Peace lily again! A few weeks ago I showed you my peace lily with four blossoms that were about to open. They have now opened and are sending out the peaceful vibe. I’ll need all of those vibes I can get as students return in just two weeks. It’s going to get c.r.a.z.y around these parts.
Linky parties! I’m going to delve into the Linky party pool. Starting next Tuesday, I’m going to be hosting the To-Do Tuesday linky party that Christine used to host at Stitch All the Things. She decided to stop blogging for now and concentrate on other things, and asked me if I’d like to take over the reigns. Now, if I can figure out how to make a button/link . . . and other stuff, Tuesday the 13th will be the first. I hope maybe you’ll consider joining in.
Give Dominic a good hill to run down and he’ll happily do it. Thankfully, the nearby local park has a hill just his size. Also very fascinating is a clear container – both of them were captivated for quite a while. Addison will happily model for you, working the fancy headgear (with the favorite winter hat of her brother right behind her!). Auntie Rose sent an Amazon goodie box to the house and Addison says the box is just her size! Saturday movie nights are made for babies who are woken up by their brother before he goes to bed. I wonder if she enjoyed that movie? Someone turned seven months already last Sunday, and her new parlor trick is clapping. Momma happened to catch her in mid-clap during her very first shopping cart ride. Yay Addi! <clap> <clap> <clap> ♥ ♥ ♥
