Things I like Sept 21


I hope everyone is safe, healthy and happy! It's hard to be upbeat after all these hurricanes and earthquakes!  But, in the spirit of our little "likes" group, I want to encourage ya'll to look for the good if at all possible. Here are my "likes" for this week:

1. Free flu shots at Cigna! Yes, I like free.  I take care of 2 people with special needs, so I get my shot each year to ward off that nastiness and not pass it on to them.

2. Watching my daughter having fun with Indoor Skydiving. Yep. It's a thing.

The glass was pretty beat up but you can see her smiling. We drove about 65 miles to Eloy, Az in the desert and there were quite a few regular skydivers but thankfully, she will not be doing that.  This was her second time indoor skydiving cause she liked the feeling! Not for me.  I went along to accompany my grandson who was out of his mind happy watching his mom and dad flying.  It was fun.

3.  Adding more fall colors to the front landscape in case the weather cools off this weekend.  I am so excited but will believe it when I see it.
Thank goodness for the dollar store- they had some pretty fall flowers and a bucket. The rest of the plants are real-2 lavenders, 2 Vincas. And, some yard art.  I would do more real plants, but the sun is moving already away from this area, so I have to watch which plants can thrive in the shade.  Soon, I will move the plants either to the back yard or along the driveway so I don't lose them all together.

4. Looking at the design wall.!
These are 6 inch blocks from another Recipe Book via Miss Rosie's Co for Moda. There are 408   pieces already!  I just used scrap layer cakes to get a fall vibe. I needed a small runner for the back of the sofa where my brother "resides watching tv all day" when he's home. I usually have a big quilt there over the sofa, but wanted something different.  Hopefully, I can finish this runner this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by and please join us at LeeAnna's blog:Not Afraid of Color for more "likes".
