I like Thursdays Jan 4


Hello to everyone. Happy New Year.

We have had a difficult 2 weeks with  truck repairs, clothes washer not cooperating and health issues for both of us! I do not understand "what's goin on"🎶.  That's a great song by the way. just sayin. We have both been at Urgent Care 2 days apart. I'm supporting Cigna.

I digress. I still have "likes" to share , so lets get goin.

1. My new Steam Inhaler. It works great to clear the sinuses but I don't think it's great for the bronchial tubes. not sure yet. At $30 I expect miracle breathing and I'm glad to have a clear head without taking drugs which I'm sensitive to.

The other reason I liked using this was because I didn't have to use a humidifier for the whole room.
Plus, you get a free facial.

2. Spicy Peppermint Hot Chocolate  that I made from a recipe at I used cayenne pepper rather than the pepper. Took 5 minutes but SO worth it vs store packets.

3.My Christmas presents from my brother.  First, you need to know he lives with me, is disabled and does not drive, use a computer, and is totally dependent on others to go places. Twice a week he attends the adult center to play games, cards, have lunch. Then his girl friend also takes him for the weekend.  This year, he ordered a quilt calendar for me online through his girl friend:
There's a new quilt pattern every month at least!

Then he ordered a quilted Christmas candle holder made by one of the adults at the center:

Absolutely beautiful!!
Plus he was able to purchase at the store (with his girl friend) Christmas knee socks:

I was totally blown away by his resourcefulness and thoughfulness!
I loved all my gifts, but this was just so special.

I hope everyone is having a good week.  Please join us at LeeAnna's "likes" group:Not Afraid of Color for more positive vibes.
Have a blessed day. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Hi Mary,
    I hope you are both feeling better! Urgent Care is no fun. That calendar from your brother looks like fun, and the quilted candle holder is beautiful. How thoughtful of him - that just warms my heart. I hope you had fun wearing the knee socks - they surely kept you warm in these cold days. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. What sweet and thoughtful gifts from your brother! He really did a great job finding the right ones for you. The spicy hot chocolate sounds interesting! Hope you're feeling better and better as the week goes on.

  3. Homemade hot chocolate is always the best. That cayenne pepper must help the sinuses! I hope you feel better.

  4. Sweet gifts from a sweet brother! I love homemade cocoa but I'm not sure about pepper. Feel better! Have a good week!

  5. Mary hope you are feeling all well again. We are coping with Hubby having a bad cough and tis the season for colds and flus. I have been using nasal sprays to keep the sinus moist, as running a furnace is so drying this time of year. I would love to avoid a sinus infection that I seem to get more often lately and hate them.
    Those gifts were spot on! Your brother did well!
    Take care of yourself.

  6. Just wanted to say again, how much I appreciate you and the way you think. LeeAnna
