Things I Love Thursday

Giant crocodiles. Always gotta love giant crocs. I'd love to have this one in my yard.

It’s been a busy (eugh, that word!) and productive week around here. We have volunteered at a food pantry, gone to Live Action Role Playing, picked up a bunch of donated craft supplies for 4-H club, had a playdate, went on a date while Wood Sprite went to a party (at 11 AM! Homeschooling rocks), gone to the library a few times, held our monthly leadership club… Whew! We still have more to go tomorrow. I’ll say I’m loving ALL of these things this week, plus…

Salt & Smoke’s toasted ravioli. They are unlike any other I’ve ever had.

Co-op activities. I love being a part of one, I love that my kid is getting to know other kids, I love looking at my big schedule and seeing mostly free things because so many parents are so generous with their time and creativity… I love all of it.

Bazaar of Bad Dreams. Short stories are my favorite type of lit and King’s are my favorites anyway. I don’t love it as much as Nightmares & Dreamscapes… but I haven’t finished it yet. And could the cover art be any more amazing? I really want a copy for my office.

Wood Sprite’s new overalls. She’s wanted them her whole life and her Pepa made it happen. They are adorable.

Two T-Bird wins in one week–and one was a shutout!

The enthusiasm of kids. Whether it’s playing superheroes or cooing over the rabbits or just being so enraptured in whatever they’re doing, I just love it. I want them all to keep that as they age.

Laura Grace Weldon’s blog. I just love her lists, like this week’s list of boredom busters. We haven’t needed them this week (ha!) but all of them are so much fun, they’re worth making time for even when you’re not bored!

What are you loving this week?
