I Like Thursdays: March 18, 2021

 It's "I Like Thursdays" and time to fill the internet with positive thoughts and things we like.  For more positive posts, visit our friend Lee Anna at Not Afraid of Color!

I took Scout to the Dog Park yesterday.  I'm starting to take small walks with Scout but she needed more exercise.  It was a good experience for her!  Of course she first had to flirt with the young men that were there.  She's such a hussy and loves men.

These were her favorite dog friends:

 Back to flirting with one of the young guys again!

We have a neighbor that fell in love with poodles because of Scout.  His own dog always ignored him and gravitated to his wife.  Not Scout, she thinks he is great and leans on him to get petted.  

This past weekend I stepped outside and found a gift bag at my doorstep!  Kathie had left this lovely towel for me.  I adore it!  Hubby's coming home and has dowels some place and we will hang it.  I love all these flowers and the colors are so spring-y!  The note touched me most of all.  Kathie said my blogs have been brightening her world during this tough winter.  That's the nicest compliment any writer can recieve!  Thank YOU Kathie!

 I ordered this from Amazon.  It is a fabric panel with swatches of all the colors of Kona cotton.  I'm still trying to use up my fabric but often I find I don't have enough complimentary colors for the fabric in my stash.  This is the tool I needed and now I can compare colors and make appropriate choices!

Lastly, I'm grateful that my husband and I are getting our first vaccines on Saturday!  Arranging things took a bit of time.  Yes it was a long wait on the phone.  But I also had to call Brad's boss and get him released from his job in Missouri a day early so he can drive home to be here on time.  It took some finagling and apparently I used my "mother voice" when I called Brad's boss.

Brad's boss called Brad and said, "I'm getting you out of there because your wife scares the crap out of me!"😂😂😂  Actually Brad was supposed to be home already but as usual, they asked if he could stay until the end of the week.  I know it's only a matter of time before they send him to a state without mask restrictions and I'm determined to keep him safe!

Brad is on his way home (it's a two day drive) and I'll be happy to see him again.  I've only seen him 9 days so far in 2021!

Have a safe and happy week!

How nice that Scout can make human friends too; everyone loves a friendly dog. How nice to know someone was helped out by your blog...lovely towel and I really like your Kona panel as well. That's an especially good idea. Meanwhile, I'm happy you are getting your vaccines and that you will have your hubby home too! Great likes.

I wondered why you never mentioned Brad and were dealing with Scout all by yourself. So happy you are getting the vaccine.

That's so cute that Scout loved the young man at the dog park so much! Glad you could take her there. Hooray for the vaccine appointment and that Brad can get back for it, too. I love those Kona color charts - they look so handy!

Hi Michele! I adore Scout - you just keep flirting with all the guys, Scout. At the very least, it means some belly rubs and maybe some treats! Oh, that gift of the calendar towel is SO COOL. What pretty colors it has. It looks rather quilt-ish, doesn't it?! Finally, yippee to you two receiving the vaccine! {{Hugs}} I'm thrilled for you. Good for you for pulling out the "Mom" voice. Whatever it takes and works, I say! Wow, that's a LOT of time on the road. How is your knee?? ~smile~ Roseanne

Scout has good taste! lol That kona panel looks pretty neat! Love the calendar towel. Yay for vaccines - I hope you react well to them. said...

Awe Scout the hussy. I am sure she is missing Kerry. I love color cards, charts form manufacturers, helps so much when you need just the right color. Yay for getting your first shot, and for hubby getting home. LOL you scare his boss.

Taking your dog for a walk was probably a great thing for you both. I know we loved it when we used to do early morning walks. They get so they are sad if you don't go.

Thank you for your visits and comment on my blog. I am trying to do better. Sundays are less busy for blog reading.

I just spied that Kona Swatch fabric at my LQS during my last visit. That is such a lovely calendar towel. I think hanging it is a wonderful idea and will be a sweet reminder of how you've brightened someone's days. "What goes around comes around" and this just proves how right that is!
