I Like Thursdays: January 21, 2021


Today is a new day and a happier one!
On Thursdays we share what makes us happy on I Like Thursdays.
Sponsored by Lee Anna at Not Afraid of Color, we've been trying to fill the internet with happy energy.  Today I noticed there is a definite upbeat mood on the blogs and throughout social media.  

Admittedly yesterday was a perfect day.  

It actually began the night before with the Memorial for the Covid victims who have passed.  It made me cry but I think I needed it.

The inauguration was wonderful and moving.  The Celebration of America was invigorating and inspiring.  Two things I liked in particular: during the Celebration program, the emphasis was on all of us and what we have done and still can do to make our country better. 

 I liked that President Biden mentioned that he had talked to President Carter on Wednesday.  Obviously at 96 he couldn't and shouldn't attend.  It was great that the President mentioned him though.  Jimmy Carter is a national treasure.

I like that my puppy snuggles with her Lambchop to sleep!


I got presents!!!  In November I won 4 Sisterhood blocks from Roseanne at Home Sewn By Us.  The blocks came with some extra fabric she included.  The package had been mailed in NOVEMBER!  But because of our lack of sorting machines and mail people with Covid, it finally got delivered this week.

Aren't the blocks cool!!!  I love each of them!  I'm glad Roseanne and Sue sent me the green dressed one (inside joke, Roseanne will understand).  I'm hoping to do some more of these in the spring after the next few projects are completed.  Thank you Roseanne and Sue!

My friend Jane also mailed me a pattern she found in her stash that she thought I would like because I have a sunbonnet collection!  Thank you Jane!

Well I'm off to do some happy sewing for a little bit.  The sun is shining and it's a new day!

Have a safe and happy day!

The hopeful, more relaxed, and joyful mood is very evident on the blogs this morning, I heaved a Hugh sigh of relief! Lots of work to do, but we can do it! The International Sisters block is on my list to do this year! This just seems like the perfect year to celebrate “sisters”! !

I, too, feel hopeful and a sense of relief today! So glad my blogging sisters do, too. The sisters from Roseanne are just great, but so crazy that it took so long for them to get to you! It will be fun to see what you do with them. Love the photo of Scout with her lambchop! Awwww! said...

Great likes. Hasn't the mail been atrocious? I ordered a book the end of November. It arrived yesterday. Seeing Scout with her lambchop, made me giggle. My daughter sent me a text yesterday, "OMG mom your dog has every toy she owns out and strung out all through the house. I had to pick up just so I didn't trip and die." I didn't get to see the whole inauguration but the parts I did see, and even the fireworks that night were fabulous.

Good likes. Lambchop and Scout are adorable.

I love your happy mail! I feel the inauguration gave us all a renewed hope for the future. Lambchop looks like the perfect toy for Scout!
