I Love Thursday #261 Beaucoup Blessings
This is the 261st post of things we love for the week. We post each Thursday along with LeeAnna from Not Afraid of Color. Several additional friends also share every week – be sure to check them out as 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
Cardinal reflection! This photo is just awesome. I’ve got nothing else to say about this. Boom, mike drop.
Coffee!!!!!! I know the entire country has been having quite some winter weather here in the USA. We had two days of snow with predictions of 12″ and 15″. Those snow storms were quickly followed by a deep freeze with wind chill values of -40. Come on, Mother Nature! Never fear. Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night would stop me from coffee.
Chase and Mario! Chase received a Mario Pez dispenser from his grandpa for Christmas. The other day, Andrea heard him say, “It won’t connect.” “What won’t connect?”, Andrea said. Chasey said, “I’m calling Auntie Rose and it won’t connect.” Awwwwwwwww. How stinkin’ sweet is that?! I guess the pez shape reminds him of a phone and he needed to call me STAT.
Words of wisdom! Carol, this is for you. We all know we’re supposed to dress in layers but we’ve been missing a key secret. Now they tell us!
Silver lining! The temperature was -1 (F) with a wind chill of -30. Brrr. We had to stop at Sue’s Mom’s house and I stayed in the car to warm it up. I looked out the window at the beautiful blue sky with the sun shining and spotted this large tree. All of the branches were covered with ice and they were sparkling like diamonds. Gorgeous beyond words and they became the silver lining to our errands. Yes, we had to be out in the cold but we also got to enjoy God’s hand at work.
Our littles . . . survived snowmageddon followed shortly thereafter by the deep freeze. During the first school snow day with actual snow (8-12″ predicted), Dominic practiced his letters. He has made so much progress, he holds the pencil correctly, and can fit his name in the space provided! We’re so proud of all of his hard work. Addison also did some schoolwork. You can see the snow falling behind her – it’s okay to be off school when you can still do schoolwork at home. Chase, on the other hand, was having a hard time selecting his color choice. He was busy coloring turtles!
Colt has discovered that baseball bats make a great substitute for Ninja Turtle swords. That looks a little uncomfortable to me. I’m not sure I’d like to have wanna-be swords in my jammies. Finally, a certain young baby is 3-months-old already. The little bruiser is almost as big as Zoe the Zebra. Maverick and both of us say, Happy Thursday.
Love #7 because it’s so cool!
This is a picture of the last ship to enter the port for the season in Superior, Wisconsin. Here’s the John J. Boland which is entering the icy channel in Superior on her way to docking for winter layup on January 21, 2024. I find it AMAZING that a ship could still dock in January. Look at the ice on her bow. WOWEE. Someday I would love to board an ice-breaker ship on one of the Great Lakes. That’s a pipe dream.
