Well thank goodness LeeAnna at "Not Afraid of Color" holds this day of positive energy. I still am too busy to be on blogs a lot but on Thursdays, I make time. Thanks LeeAnna! There are plenty of other websites to follow as well and LeeAnna always posts them on Thursdays for your viewing pleasure!
I like keeping a sense of humor in challenging situations. For example, what is that makes it snow while my husband is away? Will he ever do the digging? I like snow prep: The first thing I always do is make sure I have enough of my magic drink brewed in case we lose power:
PS, I also like Ciaran Hinds (actor above). I think I like him best in Persuasion and Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day.
I like (okay love) spring and am so grateful that it begins on Monday. I also like being defiant when facing adversity. On Monday I realized the blizzard predictions were valid so.... I went out and picked what daffodils I could. They comprise my "snow-schmo bouquets" that are scattered around our house:
I have long hair and it can be a challenge at times but this past week someone gave me a new kind of brush. It is called the Wet Brush and it is MAGICAL! Gets all the tangles easily and right away. I hear that salons love these brushes.
If you have long hair, you've get to get this brush! It's a life changer!!!
I like talking to our LeeAnna and we have a lot of fun during our conversations. She also reminds me about puppy challenges and that keeps me on track. I was wondering what to do about sewing rooms and dogs, especially mischievous ones. I remembered we had a puppy playpen for Paddie and investigated the ones that are available. It occurred to me that this would be REALLY useful when I am working in the garden as well (especially the front yard which is not fenced in). I'm looking at Amazon reviews right now and will probably order one soon.
Has anyone used this kind of product? The one we had we purchased 20 years ago (or more) and I can't remember much else about it. I think we eventually gave it to a friend.
I like the Stephen Colbert show and having "on demand". I never watch the show at night (morning person, not night person). I really just like his monologues and my neighbor comes over to watch it during early evening. He makes us laugh, especially during these challenging times.
I like having the kids home. This weekend all the young 'uns are coming home for a visit. We are celebrating my niece's engagement and it does my heart good to see the next generation getting along well. They love playing board games and it is a lot of fun to hear them torture each other :)
I hope you have a wonderful week! Have a great day!
