I like seeing the world around me green up in spring! We have a beautiful flowering crab apple tree in our backyard (called a Spring Snow Crab), and I have been anxiously waiting to see its blooms. Unfortunately, the buds haven't opened all the way yet, but all over our town there are other pretty trees that I am really enjoying. I saw this one at our bank while going through the drive-thru today.
I like a little bit of spring snow. Colorado has had a really dry winter, so the moisture we've gotten the last few weeks has been very welcome. Here are the views from our windows yesterday. I did end up covering all my daffodils and tulips - I was afraid they might freeze!
I like my little pincushion collection! Some of them I've made myself, and some are gifts from friends.
The latest addition to my collection is this adorable piece of pie, made by LeeAnna, and gifted to me when we met up last week. So cute! Thanks, LeeAnna!
I really like our membership to Netflix. We've found lots of good shows to watch, and our latest favorite is "Call the Midwife." These women are midwives in a poorer section of London, set in the 1950s. One of the things I enjoy about this show is that there is no "girl drama" in the story lines. These women live together, work together, and genuinely care about each other. Plus they make a difference in the lives of all the women around them. Reminds me of many women I know!
I like experimenting with fabric! This week's prompt for the Play Improv QAL at Elm Street Quilts is to create letters, which is definitely something I've never done before. But, I gave it a try - and letters formed! This required some "brain work!" What shapes form the letters that we've been able to recognize since we were little?!
One thing to share that I (or maybe I should say "we") didn't like this week, was a pizza crust made out of shredded cauliflower. (Sounds a bit weird, but there really is a recipe for it out there!) You know that my hubby and I have been on a quest to replace some of the carb foods we love with vegetables, right? Well, this was the most recent try.
It actually looks good in the picture, but the flavors didn't really work for us. I guess you never know until you try though!
Have a wonderful day, friends! For more I Like Thursday posts, check out Not Afraid of Color every Thursday!
