Until I dust! :)
My book club group was coming over to my house the other day, and I was cleaning, and it made me pay attention to some little things that I hadn't really looked at for awhile. (Okay, I will admit that dusting is not my favorite chore!)
I like these little ceramic cows. They are salt and pepper shakers that my sister gave to me years ago. They like to hang out on my kitchen counter, but have actually never had any salt or pepper in them!
I like my smiley face mug that a friend gave me when we graduated from high school. (a million years ago!) I kept it in my classroom for all the years that I was teaching 5th grade, and it was the place for kids to find an extra pencil when they needed one. Although I got rid of a lot of school things when I retired, I had to keep this mug!
In the mug, I keep 60 little messages that my teaching partner wrote and covered my door with when I turned 60. They are fun to re-read now and then, and make great bookmarks!
I like dalmatians! This is Perdita, from the movie, 101 Dalmatians. I got her when our kids were little and we took them to Disneyland for the first time. At the time, we also had our very own (real) dalmatian, and he looked a lot like Perdita!
I like old family pictures! This is my grandmother as a young girl. Look at her, on her toes like that! Ballet is something I tried as a little girl, but never mastered
I like grapefruit! My mom lives in Arizona, and has a grapefruit tree in her yard. Her grapefruit are so tasty, and look what she sent me! A box of them, right off the tree. It's a little thing, but it meant a lot to me that she would do this!
And and update: A few Thursdays back, I wrote about discovering zucchini noodles and how I liked buying them in a package at the store, sauteing them up, and using them instead of regular noodles or spaghetti. We found ourselves doing that pretty regularly, so we decided it was time to buy a gadget that would enable us to make the noodles ourselves.
I like my Veggetti! It works great, and since zucchini is really inexpensive to buy whole, I think it will pay for itself in no time. Here she is, working away for us! And only a little bit messy to clean up!
I like "I Like Thursday" posts, and look forward to reading about the things our I Like community has thought about this week! Join me for the weekly blog hop at LeeAnna's place, Not Afraid of Color.
