I Love Thursday #182 Blessings Galore
Happy July!!! This is the 182nd post of things we love for the week. We post each week along with LeeAnna from Not Afraid of Color and several additional friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out. You will surely find something to inspire you.
Beach and Reading! This picture just appeals to me. Not because of the sand or how she’s holding up her head – too gritty and she’s asking for a stiff neck! That beautiful teal, aqua, and darker shades of blue just look so calming, doesn’t it?! Ahh. I miss the days of floating around in our pool, coming out so relaxed that I could hardly walk into the house.
Pride home! Isn’t this home just lit up so pretty? This family had a rainbow flag near their mailbox and they were asked to remove it by the HOA. Rather than challenge the request to remove the flag, they invested in different spotlights for their yard. Not only is it an ingenious idea but also one that can’t be contested. All they missed in the lighting is the welcome path to their front door.
Surprise happy mail! Recently, I was randomly selected by Rafflecopter as the winner of this fat quarter (along with some bonus yardage!) selection by Mayfair. Thanks go to Sandra and the recently wrapped up Follow Your Own Path quilt-along, and Bernie from Needle and Foot Fine Fabrics as a sponsor. It seems serendipity to have won this fabric right when the Positivity quilt-along has started. Don’t these fabrics just scream, make us into plus signs?! Bernie is coordinating the Mercyful quilt donations from Positivity. We will have plenty of fabric for 48 more plus sign blocks in a different layout from our cornered pluses.
Time to share our Thursday loves in our four littles! Colt is able to say Baby but he calls Chase Dodo (doe-doe) for some unknown reason. You know that nickname is going to stick! Chaser laughs and says, who cares, just call me. He’s officially four months now and loving life! Dominic reads to him, as does Addison, and GG holds the rattle for one sleepy-trying-to-stay-awake baby.
Dominic spent the day with Auntie Sue, stringing beads and other fun stuff. Addison had a spa girls-only day with momma while D was gone. I’m not sure how daddy’s shoes go with a spa day?! Those too-big-shoes would be easy on a pedicure, for sure! On Thursday, Addison helped Auntie Sue cook some noodles for tuna salad and even ate some. Talk about a BIG slide – we weren’t but look at Addison going down while Dominic smiles broadly. Two goofballs brush, brush, brushing their teeth. All the better to smile at each other as they swing on a double-chaired swing. We love and adore our littles!
Last minute addition: I guess life isn’t all that great for baby Chase. Momma got the go-ahead to add cereal to his diet. He isn’t convinced he likes it, evidently. Aww, sweetheart. You will like it when your tummy stays full longer. Trust Momma! She loves you – maybe even more than we do. Nope. Not possible. ~smile~
