I Like Thursday #55
This picture is the underside of the chandelier in the Illinois Old State House where Abraham Lincoln was a member of the house of Representatives. He gave his first anti slavery speech here. More about that in some travel posts to come. I liked walking on the same floors he did. I liked the hostess of the building. I love history.
I Like America's got Talent this season!
If you only watch once, find the one from Tuesday night's final competition. Each person is unique and so very talented whether they do comedy, sing, work with their dogs, do circus acts, dance, or some other amazing talent. For the first time I think any one of them could win and it would be fair.
I like my friend Diane in Texas. Waiting for my return from the long CO trip, was a package in the mail. Choc-a-block full of poodle fabrics!
I like that Dancing with the Stars is back. Love the dancers this time!!!
And Project Runway. I love all the challenges and watching creative people making fabulous designs in a day! I imagine the excitement of being involved in the competition, and often wish we had a quilting show like that.
I liked coming home and knowing Milo could bark himself silly and no hotel would kick us out. Of course he doesn't bark much here. Only when he tries to get his point across and we are too dense.
I liked going through boxes in the basement and finding my adoption hospital record! My first year's medical notes written by my adoptive mother, weight, length, shots. I liked seeing the third grade report card...
LeeAnna is a good worker, so interested in learning, really good reader and able to take dictation in cursive writing. I loved my third grade teacher.
I like this vintage orange fabric that is flamingo feathers to me. I'm using it in a piece.
I like this pattern for poodle sweaters.
I made Cole many of them ( I make it a bit longer) and just finished this one for Milo for Colorado's cold.
I love this sparkle water flavor clementine, from Trader Joes,
And this new Brianna's salad dressing, Cilantro-lime... yum!!
And these fig bars are healthy, packaged two together so you don't just eat the whole package.
(not that I'd EVER do that...)
He loves being home in his big bed and has taken to sleeping across Drew's legs, until 6 when he finally pushes him out of bed and takes over his side. He has begun eating again,
In case you missed it, this is a video of another quiet Sunday afternoon on the porch all-gods-children-enjoy-magazines
