Challenge 116, on the things we do for love

Things I Love Thursday

Today’s a snow day! And if you’re snowed in or just feel like playing with 10 super fun words, come play at Creative Copy Challenge today, where Challenge 111 features word prompts chosen by yours truly. Here is my own wacky entry!

Things I’m Loving This Week…

Glee! I always said I’d never watch a sitcom, since when I was a kid I just hated them, but I’ve suddenly found myself obsessed with this darn show.  Singstar–still playing a few times a week!  Leven Thumps–can’t wait to read the rest of the series.  snow  seeing deer in the backyard again  watching Supernatural, yet another TV show; I’m afraid my brain may be turning to mush  interlibrary loans  cool new craft books from Highlights  playing weather phenomenon games with Wood Sprite and her zoobles (today it was a tornado)  having a relatively clean house  compliments from strangers  bubblegum oldies  our new blu-ray player  planning for next weekend’s date day  reading The Hunger Games out loud with TJ  Wood Sprite’s constantly changing request for a dog (yesterday it was a black lab, though the day before it was a “germy leopard” (German shepherd), and it keeps varying)  new blog subscribers (wink, wink!)  singing The Requiem in the shower (especially with my scrumdilluptious sugar scrub)  open days filled with promise  free family films series

Also, I read the most amazing book ever today. My tolerant husband was kind enough to care for our kiddo while I spent all afternoon on this incredible read. (I think he knows how much more alive and happy I am once I get a book under my belt every week.) I’m now eagerly awaiting the sequel from the long library waiting list…

The Dangers of a Gas Stove

Our gas stove has always made me nervous, and after reading a few facts about gas products I’m even more scared of the thing. Hopefully these safety tips will help anyone who needs them as well as yours truly!

I’m also shooting to take part in the Creative Copy Challenge, In a Sentence, AND 100 Words again starting this week! I miss the first two terribly (the third is new to me, introduced by Aless) but have just been strapped for time all summer. Seeing as I’ll probably always be crazy busy, I thought why not try and take part when I can for a bit of joy?
