I Love Thursday #189 Muchas Blessings
This is the 189th 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. “From the fullness of His grace, we have all received one blessing after another.” John 1:16
Cold Brew coffee!! know it’s not new and I have been drinking cold coffee for decades. Not necessarily by choice but more by happenstance. I’ve also had that Torani caramel syrup in the cupboard for less than a decade – I didn’t move it to this house. Now, I am following a trend by buying a premade Stok cold brew coffee. It’s so SMOOTH. There are other brands that I may try; however, I would like to use the Dunkin’ packs to try brewing my own. They are already packaged with coffee inside filters which means minimal mess. I hope. I’ll let you know when I get around to trying it. Sue’s mom, Jeanette, is not interested in trying cold coffee at all. She prefers hers scorching hot. True dat. Colty’s mom, on the other hand, is a new coffee aficionado and is willing to try oodles of cold brew brands with me. We’ll settle on our favorite yet!
TRUTH! If you believe it you can be it. Haven’t you always heard that old adage?! I see it all the time with our littles. If they receive enough encouragement or guidance, they can do it. and they do it! Sometimes that works in the opposite of reality, like don’t jump on the couch Colt. No, he shakes his head and then jumps, jumps, jumps.
Too nervous to sleep! This meme made me laugh right out loud when I saw it on Facebook. Since I am often in a similar situation, I can easily commiserate with teachers. There is just so much going on that it’s hard to shut down your mind. If only they came with an on/off switch. See #1 above which might be considered an “on” switch by some.
My sister and nephew! Since I rarely get a nice picture of my sister and her son together, it is definitely share-worthy. This is Carol and her son, Jim (I mentally think of him as Jimmy). They were headed to an anniversary/birthday party for the Osmonds’. Hmm. Do you suppose it is Donny and Marie?! I’m not aware that they know D&M but I do know that my niece, Betsy, is a huge fan. So, if it was a party for D&M she would be taking my sister, not Jim. HAHA! It was a beautiful day for a party, and he’s a good guy.
All four of our littles had an extremely busy week! Colt crashed into the baby pool – that boy loves water just as much as his daddy did. He doesn’t take umbrage that it’s called a baby pool either, even though he’s a big boy. Next, Colt and Addison hit the park for some music lessons. Isn’t that cool – they can play a song by matching the notes marked on each level. What a fun way to learn to read music! Addison – Queen of the Hill. The rock hill, that is. Next, her chauffer is tendering her about. Why she feels the need to STAND in the motorized car is beyond me. The wind in her hair must feel nice, I guess.
Speaking of hair, Chase sits nicely while Addison brushes his “hair”. Since he has none . . . see the next picture of some nice brotherly love showing NO hair. Chaser has started climbing up on momma’s legs, especially when she is eating an apple. YUM! Wanna share, momma? I’ll give you my winning, toothless smile that works on the Aunties. Princess Addison says have a nice Thursday to each of you.
