I Like #20 Post!

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!

Exciting to be thinking of puppies! Your spring blossoms are gorgeous. Good thing you can enjoy them, despite the snow!

I enjoy your sense of humor and love this post. I too like Stephen Colbert but go to bed early. My daughter reminded me to catch his monologue on You Tube or Facebook and I have done that. So funny. mary in Az

Love your daffodils! Mine are still coming up, and I can see the buds now. I planted new bulbs last fall, so I'm excited to see if I get some pretty ones like yours. I got a good chuckle out of your "cartoons" at the top, too!

I have some daffodils coming up, and they will, if my old belligerent dog would quit "marking" them!
I literally laughed out loud at that first meme. So sorry for all your snow. Just think about how much sweeter Spring will be when it finally gets here! (I can say that looking out my window at green grass, I truly am sorry you all are having a hard time of it back there!)
I bet you can't wait until the day you get your new puppy. What a joy that will be!

This is such a happy post! With a -24C windchill this morning (and 90% of our snow is gone, so it's rather odd!) the daffodil pics are just what I need :) I went out to throw some stuff in the blue box outside, and noticed that some cardboard from my neighbour's box had blown out of the box. I popped over (literally - next door) to put it back in the bin, and then RAN to my house. In the minute or minute and a half that I was outside, my fingers got numb - it's THAT cold, lol. I'm sure it will pass soon, but for now - brrrrrrrrrrr! Poor hubby - we have the kids coming for dinner tonight so BBQ steak is on the menu ... had I known what was coming I would have planned the menu differently :D BTW - I'm well stocked with MY magic drink as well, only mine is Diet Dr. Pepper, LOL!

Stay warm, and think DAFFODILS :D
