I Love Thursday #58

I’m joining a group of friends who get together via a linky party on LeeAnna’s blog Not Afraid of Colorsome weeks to share list of things that bring them joy, inspire them or make them laugh.

I’ll start by wishing all of my American friends and family a Happy Thanksgiving. Here in Canada we celebrate Thanksgiving in October. 🍗🫕

This is my biggest source of happiness this week:

More snow! It started yesterday as soon as I was on my way home from town. So much nicer than the rain 😄

I had to do a town trip this week to try to get DH’s scripts refilled. With the highway closures there have been issues get our stores restocked. I was pleased that they were able to fill 2 out of 3 prescriptions. While I was in town I decided to do my big grocery restock instead of travelling back to town tomorrow. There were lots of empty spaces on the shelves but I was able to get everything on my list except fresh broccoli. There wasn’t even any frozen this time. The good news is the hoarders must be fully stocked up because there was even toilet paper on the shelves. 😉 Now I am tucked in at home with grocery shopping done. I can always pick up fresh produce and milk at my gas station when I go get the mail.

I’m sure I’ve mentioned that my sewjo is just gone right now. The fun thing is I’ve gotten back in to knitting. I think everyone is getting new winter hats, slippers or scarves this year. I do have plans to tackle some more socks, but that might have to wait until next month 😳

I really enjoy this time of year, snuggling in with my winter leggings (they are fuzzy inside) and being able to sit while DH has his football games on with my earbuds in listening to a book while I’m knitting. One of the other Board members from my Guild recommended a book to me that she knew was available. I am intrigued with the story line but thinking this book might have a horrific turn to it as the story behind Willow being on the streets with her baby comes to light. This is what I’m listening to right now:

I don’t have any new photos of Clarke and Grace to share, but my daughter is going to spend a couple of months with her grandchildren so I should be getting some fun new ones to share. I’m so happy my daughter is able to go help her son and DIL and that she will even get to spend time with Levi, who we don’t often get to see. It’ll be fun seeing him interact with his stepsisters. 😄

I am also very happy to report that the 4 old ladies completed the shelves in our new shed and we are happily filling them with extra spinning wheels, boxes of priced goods for our annual fundraiser in April and Val is making curtains for the window. 😉

I’m off to see what everyone else is sharing this week over on LeeAnna’s blog Not Afraid of Color.

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. What a beautiful, picturesque view you have! I love your leggings, and I’m so impressed with you 4 ladies tackling those shelves and getting the job done! So thankful I found your blog – I enjoy our conversations!

  2. I’m glad you were able to get most of what you wanted / needed when you were shopping! No broccoli? That’s weird! We have most of what we need – but the stores are out of things that come from back east.
    At least one highway is slowly being restored … the others are going to take awhile!
    We’ve been limiting our trips. Some gas stations still have gas … others are out. I’m glad that we now have the option of going across the border to fill up! We’ll see when the time comes!
    I’m wondering if I can make it to your fundraiser in April??? Now – that would be way cool! 🙂

    1. Hi Gail. It’s good to hear you are doing okay. Going cross border for gas is a great option. Managed to get broccoli today so life is good. If you did come to the fundraiser you’d have fun! It’s a very social event. 😉


  3. The snow looks so pretty!
    Our local Sam’s was pretty much out of meat a few weeks ago. The butcher said meat would be scarce in our area, so we filled up our mini freezer (it’s about 4 feet tall by 2 feet wide) with what we’ve been able to find. I’m not sure if that’s hoarding, but I am grateful we could do this. 🙂 Frozen veggies have been hard to find at times, but our fresh veggies are all in stock. I do love that feeling when grocery shopping is done and packed away.
    I understand about losing your sewing mojo. Thank goodness you have knitting to turn to for your creative outlet! Sometimes slow stitching is just what our hearts need.
    Your photo of you stitching looks so cozy!
    Pretty Baby sounds intriguing – as scary!
    Take good care!

    1. Thank you Mia. It’s good to hear that you managed to stick up on meats. I must have the same freezer as you. Slow stitching is just fine for times like this. I usually start a bit of knitting once the snow flies. We are back to rain again unfortunately. But snow will come again. 😁
