I Like #272

 Welcome to another week of things to like!

The weather has been nice this week, highs in the mid 80s and cooling off at night, so it's been more pleasant than usual here.  Of course for our friends in Florida and Puerto Rico it has been decidedly not nice at all; my friend Brett's parent's house in Fort Myers was severely damaged by hurricane Ian, but luckily they were not there.  I hope that people and their animals are safe.

 I read two good books this week, both by T. Kingfisher.  Previously I read and enjoyed her book The Hollow Places, this week I finished Swordheart (funny and delightful and adventury), and Nettle and Bone, both of which I really enjoyed. 

Lee Anna's prompt for this week was our favorite health and beauty product.  I don't really have any particular favorite health and beauty products, but I love my electric toothbrush.  I think my favorite thing is probably my gummy vitamins.  I know it sounds dumb, but I never did very well taking vitamins regularly until I found the gummy ones.  I just get the store brand but I love them.

The garden is doing well- it's very happy to have slightly cooler weather with warm days and cooler nights,  these are some dahlias and tomatoes I just got this morning


I worked some on some quilts this weekend, but the most exciting crafty thing I did was finish my Black Flame Candle socks!  I have been working on these for what feels like ages and ages.  I think they turned out very well!

I'm also very excited because we've pulled out some of my favorite choral anthems to sing in our church choir.  This is a particular favorite of mine and we haven't sung it in many years.  Even so I was able to find the copy I had previously in the pile-  I can usually tell by the coffee stains and untidy notes inside.

And the pups are doing well.  Spooky is being a bit of a picky eater at the moment, but otherwise they're super snuggly!

I hope everyone is finding some good things in their week!  Click over to Lee Anna's for more things to like!


  1. Love those little tomatoes. I bet they're tasty! Flowers are beautiful. What fun socks!

    1. this is LeeAnna don't know why google who's known me for years put anon.

  3. I can't tell you how delighted I am that your links lead to Nowhere Bookshop! (I am a fan of Jenny, and independent bookstores). I wondered if you have read the "Clockwork Boys" that Swordheart refers to.

    Those socks are fabulous!
