I'm feeling better mentally (adjusting to life's up and downs) and physically so I'm more aware of the "likeables" in my life.
The weather has been really nice till yesterday when clouds and rain moved in. I think we have rain scheduled for one more day so we definitely can't complain. We are able and moving forward with doctor appointments for my brother and I so I'm thankful for that.
And, I'm still able to care for my special needs grandson which makes me thankful every single day.
He is my valentine.
So here goes on my special "likes" for this week :
1. Amaryllis blooms. Oh my goodness. I am blown away by this bulb that only took 4 weeks to bloom into huge peach colored flowers-this is the first bloom:
The plant is over 3 foot tall! I braced it with chopsticks but I need to get taller braces from the store.
Here is a photo 3 days later with the rest of the blooms opening:
There are about 5-6 blooms each about 5 inches across! Best plant I've ever grown.
2. Pizza at my son and daughter-in-law's home. Good company, good food. This time we had spinach, artichoke and mushrooms.
I've never seen such a thin crust-thinner than a tortilla. Wonderful. She makes it and my son cooks it on his Green Egg hibachi. So cool.
3. Valentine gift for "my pumpkin" (who is 13 so I better come up with a new nickname but he insists I still call him "my pumpkin"). Just sayin. 💖 Anyway, I found this cutie at Walmart.
Thomas likes it when we call him a hairy beast (from one of his books) so this just fit perfectly. He insisted the lion keep him company while playing with his trucks. He never had an interest in stuffed animals till this last year so this has been fun to surprise him with new ones and of course, Thomas is also very handsome.
4. Snowboarding events at the Olympics. You must realize I'm a 69 year old gramma, I've never been on a snowboard or gone to the snow for at least 30 years. For some reason I am in awe of these athletes and their snowboarding skills-men and women-young and old!
I spent 3 hours trying to baste a WIP quilt but forgot to take photos; so, hopefully, by next week I'll have a finished donation quilt to share and, one of my WIPS completed-yay.
This has been a better week and I hope everyone has also had a good week. Please join us at LeeAnna's post Not Afraid of Color for a great group of bloggers posting our "likes".
Have a blessed day.
Edit: This post was written before the horrible events in Florida yesterday. I've been praying for everyone.
