I Like #85 stonehenge, flowers, running dogs

Welcome to this week's list of likes!
Let's start with Lisianthus! My husband brought these home this week... not only purple, and lush with the fullness of plenty, so ruffled and full and colorful, but sentimental too.
When we met, I went up to MA to visit him. Being from Florida I'd never seen these flowers and fell in love with them. He began sending them to me while we courted. I'd get to see him when he came to MacDill AFB to fly in hurricanes with NOAH, and he'd again bring them on the plane to me.

We have been frantically trying to see houses and choose one that might do. We walk in new to us neighborhoods to see if they fit. I've gotten hurt in so many recently, my spine slips and pinches nerves when I walk on too steep of inclines, and unfortunately most 'hoods round here are that way.

Anyway we've seen a lot of houses that won't do, but this week we seem to have visited Colorado's stonehenge
where Milo met a young girl to play with for a moment
and I got to smile for a moment, letting go of the fears and frustration that are my life
He loves to meet dogs, and hates when they leave, often sniffing where they stood. That's one of Milo's likes this week.

I love the library... What's on YOUR coffee table? Mine's covered in books and cd's and movies

Once again, this blog of funny signs made me laugh out loud. Please enjoy them all at HERE

I sure liked this on pinterest...
(Are you talking to me? )
Ryan Gosling - Hey girl hey!

I liked sewing with yellow this week, post on that tomorrow

 Milo's Moment
Hi y'all.
It's been a busy week round here, but I made time in my BUSY POODLE SCHEDULE to have a playdate with my best friend of the moment, Jumble.
Man, that girl can play! She lives in a Marine family and they say, "put on your war face!" and she growls! Ha! As if she'd scare me, well maybe a little. We played rough, lots of running around, grabbing of feet and tails and ears. Here she flopped down with Daddy and I teased her foot so she'd get up!
Face to face! She liked to go rest by Mama mostly, while I got a drink of water. Then suddenly, isn't that always the way? I got tired and flopped down
Just for a little rest, and I kept my eyes open as Jumble always leapt on me when I laid down...
HA! HA! HA!!!
That tickles Dad!
Anyway Mama and her mama talked a lot, but I told Mama to catch us on camera and she did and here's the video

LeeAnna here: I liked chatting with Tanya, a marine helicopter pilot. She was the 4th female pilot allowed to fly in combat and now teaches others. You never know people's stories til you ask...

Hi LeeAnna,
I wish I could snap my fingers and make your life less stressful, with a house of your dreams (or at least one you could make into your dreams). I love watching dogs play - Jumble is so pretty. What do you suppose they were going for with all those stones arranged like that?? You sure have quite a few good books from the library! I need to check further in our online books - that flying geese one looks interesting! ~smile~ Roseanne

Some seriously cool likes. Aw - to be carefree and play like that. :-) Hugs on the house hunt.

Love the yellow Dresden. I hope you find some flat neighborhoods so you will be able to walk Milo! Inclines/declines kill my back and affect my breathing so I understand your dilemma. Hang in there girl! mary

Mary in Peoria Handmade said...

I don't think I could sew with Ryan near me. My, my, my.

Sara said...

The yellow Dresden looks like it's going to become something very interesting! I sure hope you find a good neighborhood and house. Love those flowers!!

Shannon said...

I am so sorry the house hunt is still such an ongoing struggle! I'm glad to see the sunny yellow dresdens though, they made me smile. And I too got a kick out of all those signs when you sent them to me!

Loved the video of Milo playing with Jumble - complete joy! Pretty flowers, too! I bought myself some flowers yesterday, and it's so fun to have a vase full of them on the table.

Tamar SB said...

Love the puppy fun!! Good luck house hunting!!

Sandee said...

I love running dogs too. So fun to watch.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. ♥

Milo sure was having a big time and the video was fun! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

MissPat said...

I tried growing Lisianthus a couple times, but never had much luck. Fingers crossed on the house hunting. Getting settled would really help you. Milo is so cute.

Latane Barton said...

What a sweet love story and such pretty flowers.

Michelle said...

Good luck with the house hunt. It is always an adventure trying to find just the right one. We moved around quite a bit before we settled in our small town. Thanks for linking up today.

Suzanne said...

A weekly like post is lovely...thanks for sharing the idea with us. Hope you find your perfect home soon.

A Colorful World said...

That Milo is so cute! Loved your stray threads quote from Pinterest! How nice would THAT be! :-) Lovely sunny Dresden Plate too, and beautiful flowers. Have a great week!

Tails Around the Ranch said...

Yay for playtime! Hope your house search is narrowing down. Good luck.

sandyland said...

Quite a name the new dog- and Milo certainly impressed her

Angie said...

LeeAnna - still praying for a successful house search for you ... The Pinterest quote made me think that perhaps the modern-day 'pool boy' vacuums the carpet rather than the pool!

I just finished "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry" by Rachel Joyce. One of our blogging buddies recommended it, and I wish I could remember who because the pilgrimage story really resonated with me!

Sorry I couldn't get my post done in time for this week; could you please include me in your links next Thursday?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
