I Love Thursday #140 – Blessings Plenteous
This is the 140th post of things we love for the week. We post these likes and 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.
Weigela prettiness! Last Fall, we replaced one of our weigela bushes near our front door. It was mostly dead and I had hoped it would rally during the summer but that was not to be. When you put in a much smaller bush you often wonder how it is going to flourish during the winter and if it will even bloom as it should. This new weigela bush basically told me not to worry – it has this. Isn’t it just a pretty red?!
Bird covers! Operation Bird was called into action recently at our house after we recently discovered a bird in our bathroom vents. We believe one bird happily took the straw laying around at the new house being built next to us and labored over two nests. Thankfully, our friend Ken removed the nests for us and installed these guards. Just imagine our surprise when a bird poked its head out from the vent shortly after this picture was taken. It appeared as if she was saying, yes? It’s polite to knock first before destroying my
home nest. I am 100% certain I would have fallen off the ladder when that bird peeked out. Egad.
Last Sunday was Colt’s first Father’s Day and, of course, his dad’s first as well. Colt’s momma caught daddy giving him some kisses, and then they both posed for a sweet photo. Oh yeah, Colty got his first baseball glove in Cubs colors handily enough. ♥ ♥
Dominic and Addison love that the summer is here! Dominic enjoys ‘swimming’ in Gamma’s bigger pool and Addison is just busy with all the pool toys. The two of them are still playing mostly nicely. When it’s back to their own backyard, they both embrace the water toys there as well with plenty of sunscreen on.
Addison is modeling the All American Girl look and she’s ready for the 4th of July with her red, white, and blue sunglasses. Rock it, girl! Uncle Billy stepped up to help both littles master t-ball. Both of them had solid hits that would definitely get them on first base. Finally, all of that activity warranted fun bath time with delighted smiles. Splashing is required!
