Happy Thursday, friends! Thanks for visiting my weekly post of all the things I like! Find more I Like Thursday posts at Not Afraid of Color
I loved waking up to sunshine this morning after several days of cold, gray, and snow! Everything just feels better when the sun is shining, doesn't it?
I have enjoyed having these roses on my dining room table for the last week or so.
DH would like to take credit for them, but actually they were given to me for free by the grocery store cashier, lol! Funny, but also a treat!
I like this little string of lights that a friend gave me this week.
They don't look like much here, but look what you do with them!
The string of tiny LED lights are hooked to a plastic "cork" that holds the battery and on/off switch. They make a really neat light from inside the wine bottle!
We enjoyed watching an episode of "Dynasties" on BBC America the other night. It was about a colony of emperor penguins in Antarctica. They are such fascinating creatures! The behind the scenes info they share about the camera crew is pretty interesting, too!
We also went to a good movie the other day - "The Upside."
I would definitely recommend it! Two men with very opposite lives become good friends and change each other's lives for the better.
I also loved this book I just finished up this week, News of the World.
It takes place in Texas after the Civil War, and the main character is an older man who stops in different towns to read the news to people. Of course, there is more to it than that, so check it out here
, if you're interested. I grew to really love the main characters, and look forward to Tom Hanks starring in the movie someday!
I'm continuing to enjoy the Hand-Pieced QAL
. Here is this week's block in progress.
It's possible that my hand-piecing skills are getting better with all this practice!
I can't end an I Like post without including a bird photo, since watching them is one of the things Mike and I enjoy doing the most. We found this bald eagle at our favorite local natural area to go birdwatching.
He was just hanging out up high in the tree, probably looking for some lunch by the lake. It is always such a treat to see a bald eagle!
Have great rest of the week, everyone!
