I Like Thursdays: March 26, 2020

Good morning!  Today is Thursday and we post things we like via our hostess with the mostess, LeeAnna. You can explore other positive posts by visiting LeeAnna here and gather some inspiration and sunny thoughts.

I like how people are becoming creative in order to cope.

In London, one neighborhood is occupying their children with teddy bear hunts, you can read the article here.

I love my brother Jim:
I'm self-isolating because I took my aunt to the ER and spent time in the hospital.  We refer to my brother (who lives down the street and is my Mom's other caregiver) as "Uncle Bacony."  He always has a bacon treat for each dog and has taught Scout how to catch pretty well.  Scout misses the family. Uncle Bacony called last week and said, "Let Scout out the front!"  

He gave her a bacony treat which made her day.  He always makes her smile!

I like kindness.
The sign says "Take what you need."

Like many towns, we have "little libraries".  The little libraries have now taken to putting canned goods out for folks.  In our neighborhood which is about 95% elderly, this could be a godsend.

I like that "someday" is here.  

Last week I cleaned out one of my chest of drawers that had embroidered linens and quilt blocks on.  There were so many "someday" projects in them.  One of them was a little embroidered block that I made into a wall hanging which is now finished.  I'll post photos of them later when the sun comes out and I can take decent photos.

Our valley is now in lockdown like many parts of the country.  I continue to pray for all of us and hope you are staying safe and healthy.

I want an Uncle Bacony! How awesome is that!!! I bet Scout was thrilled! And so cool that you dug out your someday projects. I'll love seeing them as you finish! I'm looking forward to working on some put-off things as well, but so far it's been lots of trying to meet deadlines, while working from home or virtually.

Uncle Bacony - I thought you were going to say he liked eating all things bacon. I was ready to send some recipes - haha! Fun that he likes your pup enough to stop by to give the treat, just to keep the routine :-) Someday projects -- good idea! I need to tackle some of mine!

Love Uncle Bacony! I like too how stories of kindness are emerging from this messy time. It is a good time to take stock isn't it...I went through two of those 3 drawer wheelie bins yesterday and found stuff I'd forgotten about. Always fun. Stay safely away from people.

Hi Michele! Aww, Uncle Bacony is a treasure and I'm sure Scout enjoyed her treat very much. Animals and littles can't quite understand what's going on. They can't go to the park like before or to Barnes & Noble for story time. Stay healthy and safe! ~smile~ Roseanne

I love all the things people are doing to help others even while keeping their distance - like the canned goods in the little library, and your brother, and the neighborhood kids in your previous post. That stuff just warms your heart, doesn't it?

Uncle Bacony sounds like fun. Happy Scout! I've heard of other little libraries switching to food. How terrific. Take care!

I loved hearing about Uncle Bacony! So funny! I love the idea of food instead of books in the little libraries. It's a great idea for this time. I don't mind staying home as long as I can keep busy! It's scary to go out right now. said...

Hurray for Uncle Bacony! How nice to see people doing good. You are the 2nd blog I have read today about the bear hunts.
