I LIke Thursday #181 from Not Afraid of Color


Welcome to this week's list of likes... another difficult week...
But here goes....
I like that despite the what seems like constant snowing and lack of road clearing, I got brave enough to drive the 40 minutes to my art quilt group meeting on Wed.

We are doing a journal challenge for this year, making a 12" quilt each month. I love how mine came out and will share that on Saturday, and my painting/drawings on Friday

I like that DH took time off and drove the three of us to the vet visit in the thick snow ...

Welcome to this week's list of likes!
Let's start with the orchid workshop given at the garden center (Tagawa) last Saturday.
> Milo was not interested in orchids and demanded I take him to the dog toy area to find another SQUEAKY kong ball
>I decided there was a bit too much needed for this lovely blossom to thrive here (and they cost way too much)
> we met and chatted with a lovely woman who also had a S.poo. who moved here from Seattle

Welcome to this week's list of likes! I like poodles (don't most people?) so when I saw these on sale at Pier One last weekend, well, one to keep and one to share with my poodle loving friend Diane, who has two white poodles!

I liked being able to take Milo to Pier One too, and he sniffed and looked at every shelf within reach!
All the clerks had to pet him too, so he felt like a very important poodle.
The garden center in a nearby town also had a Christmas sale, so I got this lovely ...

I Like Thursday #174 a new decade of Likes! from Not Afraid of Color

modern art from the kitchen
welcome to this week's list of likes! I not only appreciate and like DH's kitchen work, I noted his abstract art display of just washed items. For it's artistry, he gets top points, color, line, intersection, balance, originality.
The fact that it's unintentional has no bearing on this award.

I like fresh blackberries and raspberries just rinsed in a pretty red colander





I liked this T-shirt at the Denver Science Museum store... it's so me
















OMG I am in love! (and I do like latkes)

Welcome to this week's list of likes! Let's start!
1.washing your reading glasses.... I like to see and need reading glasses stashed all over the house now, just in case someone writes with a tiny script. I forget to wash them, and by the time I do, it's simply amazing how wonderfully you can see when the world isn't smudged.

2.new cuddle duds sleeping pants. I found a pair of waffle weave thermal cuddle duds at Khols during the sales, and thought I'd try them for sleep pants. They ...
