I Love Thursday #26

Most weeks I head over to LeeAnna’s blog, Not Afraid of Color and join friends who linkup there to share lists of things that bring them joy.

Once again I am late getting my post live, but my router died yesterday and I’m just getting caught up now with the new one being installed. I do love our serviceman and always get extra special service from him (he is DH’s son).😉

I love reading and have found that listening to books keeps me focused when I’m spending time with fabric and my machines. The TV is about 6’ from my sewing table and DH has an addiction to watching American, British and Canadian news for several hours a day.

I just started listening to the Outlander books, written by Diana Gabaldon and narrated by Davina Porter. I read the series years ago, have watched a few episodes on tv, but hearing it being read is a wonderful way to enjoy these books all over again.

Our library has expanded the collection of audiobooks during Covid 😄

I love having our Guild meetings via Zoom since we are back in lockdown again. On Sunday I was able to see unmasked, smiling faces as they shared their finished and in progress projects, with their lovely Christmas trees in the background, reindeer antlers, elf hats and ugly sweaters proudly worn. I was having so much fun seeing and visiting I forgot to take any photos 😒.

I love reading blogs and will not confess to how many I follow. This week I was reading Sharon of Vroomans Quilts blog and saw this cartoon and just had to share since I have developed a habit of losing my reading glasses (Really? In a 650 square foot apartment?🥴)

I love my sweet little great granddaughter, Clarke who turned 1 yesterday. It’s hard to believe it’s been two days short of a year since I held her. My family have been so good about making sure I have photos, FaceTime visits and phone calls to be part of this sweet girls life.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Do check out Lee Anna’s blog to see what every one else is sharing. 😄 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. I’m not telling how many blogs I follow either, but I honestly could spend the entire day reading posts, I think! I haven’t read or watched Outlander, but it sure has a following. I tried audiobooks, but I get so involved in sewing I forget to listen! Love the cartoon – ha!

    1. Hi Wendy. I read the books years ago, but can easily follow along since I know the story line. That way I don’t have to concentrate on the story but really enjoy the narrator’s voice, accent and tones. 😉


  2. Hi Carol! Happy Happy Birthday Clarke. I can’t believe she’s a year old already. How that time rushed by. She’s doing great on that rocking horse, too. It is so nice to be kept abreast with photos and Facetime and such. I feel lost when we go a few weeks without seeing our littles. I can only imagine how you’re itching to get your hands on her. {{hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Ah…. good stuff! Listening helps you focus on what you do? I’ve also heard that working on something repetitive can help you focus on what you’re listening to. Isn’t it nice to be able to see smiling faces? That cartoon made me chuckle. And happy birthday Clarke!

    1. Hi Sally. I did read these books years ago (several times actually) so it’s easy to follow along with out having to concentrate on the story. More importantly, it blocks out hours of news; Canadian, American, British… I’m glad I could share a chuckle with you. 😉
