I like week 2


My week two has me finding more things to like

I like trying healthier food options.
Spaghetti squash is on the list
For a lower carb version of spaghetti 


I love green tea
Never thought I would. 

I was always a black coffee kinda gal
And I drink a cup here and there
But tea tastes better to me
Green tea
Lipton tea
Lady earl......oh yeah.......heavenly nectar!


If i run out of homemade jam
I am a fan of Mr Smucker.
Strawberry is a fav along with orange marmalade and apricot


And on my morning toast it is comfort food
When we didnt feel well as kids
Mom would make tea and toast
Along with a little love it was the best way to feel better


I like visiting nearby quilting friends and seeing what they are making


I like being able to sew up gifts on the fly to make someone elses day


I like finding treasures I had forgotten about  when doing a mundane chore like cleaning


I like little gifts from friends......
Just because


I love finding treasures made by family members no longer with us.
This tin is full of handkerchiefs and needs to be made into a quilt

Isnt this butterfly so pretty?


I like finding a project that is almost done.
A few more blocks and this can be put together


I love when hubs gifts me with things I like

I love seeing my yellow bird friends at the feeder.
So pretty 
Dunkin likes watching them too.




What do you like today?

Good Morning Julierose! So many fabulous like in this post. I love eating spaghetti squash as a replacement for noodles. I get to enjoy it without gaining 10# overnight. That yellow bird - oh so pretty and what a brilliant yellow!! And those hankies - I kick myself that I didn't save my mom's hankies. I've always wanted to make a quilt from them - I guess I'll have to visit Goodwill and pretend they were hers. The bowtie quilt you friend is making has such fun colors in it! And jam on toast - yum. ~smile~ Roseanne

Great list of likes. I don't eat pasta often, tried spaghetti squash, not a big fan. I use rice instead especially like Basamati.

Good Morning, Dawn. I really enjoyed all your likes and photos today. Lovely gifts and quilts in the making. The box of hankies are a treasure! Homemade jam is the best. In summer I like to buy small jars at farm stands and savor them all winter. The taste of summer ... mmmmmm! Smuckers is a good store bought alternative. Have you tried the "Naturals" line of Smuckers ... less added sugar and a better fruit taste. Thanks for sharing Thursday with me ... :) Pat

I like your likes. Lost treasure is always so much fun to find. Toffee squares look delicious. I love the goldfinches here, too.

You have so many things to like and I like them too! You're so good at making gifts for everyone. I never eat pasta anymore which bothers my Italian mother! I do love zucchini noodles with pesto sauce. So yum!
