I liked that my camera captured pretty well what I was actually seeing, and that doesn't always happen!
I like these new wool socks that I bought at Cabela's recently.
They're warm and soft. What cracks me up, though, are the L and R on them. Can you see it? What do you suppose happens if you put them on the "wrong" foot? (Which I have already done!) Are there sock police? :)
Have you had your DNA tested? Mike and I sent away for the kits from Ancestry.com for Christmas and our results came back this week. So interesting!
I have to learn lots more about it, but I liked looking at what they've sent me so far.
I liked this book that my book club read for our January get-together. If you like World War II historical fiction, I would definitely recommend it. It's based on the life of a man named Pino Lella who was 17 when he got involved in the Italian Resistance during the war. Italy is evidently often called the Forgotten Front because so few of us know what happened there during WWII. I definitely didn't!
Have you heard of Project Quilting?
Learn more about it here at the blog, Persimmon Dreams. When I read about it, I was intrigued enough to give it a try! Its beginning was inspired by the show "Project Runway," and it works kind of like the show. A challenge is issued, and you have one week to make a quilt of any size that fits the parameters of the challenge. The first challenge is called "Hometown Proud." I've been working on a mini for it that looks like this so far -
Green grass and fields, sunflowers, mountains, sun, and blue sky - but that is just the background. The final project has to be posted and linked up by Sunday at noon, so I'll be back with more by then!
And the most important like for this week has to do with this picture!
We celebrated our 42nd anniversary this week! This picture was, of course, taken as we got into our little red Datsun pick-up truck to leave for our honeymoon. Were we a 70s couple or what?! I'm so thankful to have made it this far, and hope for many more years to come.
Hope you're having a great week! Thanks, as always, to LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color who hosts our weekly parade of likes!
