I Like Thursday # 241

 Welcome to this week's list of likes... let's get this party started shall we???

I like coming out of the studio, looking down and seeing my puppy having a sun bath


 I like painting and put a couple on the last post but Friday is usually the day to show drawing and painting

I liked my Tuesday post LINK and the two cool videos mentioned there... go see? It was for a group called T is for Tuesday and they are so nice and talk about their lives and drinks they enjoyed each week

I sewed a lot this week finishing two items and working on two others! story on Saturday!

blue wine bottle blocks

I like....

I like reading:

 Ebook for bedtime reading

Fine Dining

see how big they are!

 I enjoy trying new recipes now and this week I had some apples drying out so I grated them, and made this recipe for apple muffins with struesal 

A messy recipe with a lot of steps, and she says it makes enough for 13-14 muffins... what?!? my muffin tin is 12... so they were really overfull, and I had to make the last one by putting the paper liner in a shaped aluminum foil holder so it would fit in the oven. They were good, but not very apple-y

 tired of your kids? this guy has the patience of Job, I liked the patience of this daddy and how he gently told the kids to knock it off:

Milo's Moments

just sittin' around in my arm chair

Mama: Milo, this bowl is not licked clean! 

Milo: oh, it's a one hand assist situation Mama

Mama: wha???

Milo: I can't really clean it til you hold it up for me to really get at

Mama: are you a dog? why can't you use that sniffer? And I know you're not blind because you bark at neighbors four houses down when they come out to the mailbox..

Milo: it is just one of those things that takes teamwork Mama. While we're talking yummies... I like cooked carrots and apples and cabbage, not raw. And, I'm not your average dog Mama....

you're welcome

Please visit these people with lists for the week too!

I love Milo’s Moments! He really is a special dog! Wonder why the muffins weren’t apple-y? I am anxious to see your wine bottle project! Yours have been so fun to see! said...

Awe Milo in the sun. Bobbin drapes herself over a pillow on the sunporch which I keep waiting for her to slide onto the floor. Pretty little block. Oh your muffins look yummy. Bobbin likes bananas, carrots, and apples...oh and she will snarf up cabbage too. I read the book by Patience Griffin it was good.

Good Morning, LeeAnna. Thank you for sharing. Your posts always brighten my day. The wine blocks are very interesting. I have never seen a wine bottle quilt block before. Looking forward to seeing more ... :) Pat

Sara said...

Those wine bottle blocks are so clever! Can't wait to see what you do with them. I just haven't gotten very interested in anything on TV lately. The last 4 new episodes of This Is Us are recorded but I haven't watched them yet. Dave is frustrated with his "Covid 15/20" pounds he has gained, so I'm trying not to do any baking right now.

Rebecca Jo said...

I love all those housewives shows. So excited for Beverly Hills & some Erika Jane hot dish!!!

Joanne said...

Hi LeeAnna,
I do the same thing that Milo does ! Especially when I worked in Banff. On those cold days, if there was sun shining in, I would find something to read and enjoy the sun and some zzzzzzzz's :)
I enjoy doing that here as well :)

Love Milo in the sun and your wine bottle quilt blocks! I'm done with the snow, too...enough! Happy Thursday!

PaintedThread said...

Sleeping in the sunshine is always good. I'm a little jealous of all the sewing you've been doing.

The Joyful Quilter said...

Those muffins look amazing! I like that you gave us the link for making them! My waistline won't be so happy with you, though. :P

Meditations in Motion said...

Thanks for sharing your T is for Tuesday link. I checked it out - looks awesome. Love seeing Milo in his sunny spot. I needed my dog fix for today.

I should mention how much I like the hexie kaleidoscope blocks and your bottle blocks too. Neat. Love muffins and cinnamon rolls. Love a poodle in the sun!

Patience Griffin said...

What a fun blog! Happy listening!

LA - I enjoyed your golden retriever video. My neighbor's goats are in the process of kidding, and it always amuses me how the kids like to climb on top of their mamas. And the mamas don't seem to mind! Have a good weekend!

I love retriever puppies so so much. They are my fave!
