I Like #43

A little bit late for most, but I'm checking in this week with some I likes all the same.

1. I like being home with my family.  Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, I hope you're celebrating in a meaningful way.  I'm so grateful to have a loving and supportive family- being with them is good for me.

2.  I like the colors in the sky!  Out of focus pictures of course, and it's no fun to drive into the sun (as the afternoon westward trek always is), but the colors are always out of this world.

3.  I like fixing things!  I'm not generally a home DIYer in spite of being crafty, but I do like fixing things that have needed fixing for a while.  Recently I fixed two things: a missing chunk of drywall that needed patching, and a missing floor transition (there was a big crack between the end of the tile and the beginning of the wood floor).  Both of these things should have been straightforward, but wound up taking forever.  Now though they're done so yay!  Next step is to paint the laundry room!

4.  I like my flowers.  My mom's geraniums are huge and gorgeous, I'll try to get some pictures of them for next week, but for now, here's a picture of my precious begonia blooming.

Thanks to LeeAnna for keeping us together and again, Happy Thanksgiving to all.


  1. great blooming begonias! Sounds like an exclamation! I love having things fixed whether or not I do them. It's amazing how long you'll put up with broken things isn't it? When they are fixed you wonder why you put it off so long! Happy Thanksgiving Shannon my friend.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving under your beautiful sky. Such a sense of accomplishment to fix things and as LeeAna says isn't it strange how long we'll put up with something.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving the sky was gorgeous. Oh I totally understand the sense of accomplishment thing.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving! Wonderful likes this week!

  5. Hi Shannon,
    Oh my, the colors in that photo!! I haven't even read a single word yet but had to comment how fabulous that is. I have to say I enjoy fixing things like you do - great job on the drywall! And gathering with family . . . it is the best as far as I'm concerned. {{Hugs}} Love your likes! ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. Hi Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving. I love sky photos. So amazing! and you could never properly paint them. Billions of colours. ;-)
