I Like Thursday #109


It's time for I LikeThursday! You can visit LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color to read more fun and positive posts by bloggers. It's officially Fall so we bought a new play house for the kitties. As you can see, Molly took to it right away! There's a scratching pad at the top as well as the bottom of the house. They also like to chew it. Not sure why!? They only last a few seasons since the cats are so rough with it!

I started tutoring at the library again. It was a little weird to be in there. The library was virtually empty. In the past, once the doors opened at 9am, the place was packed. It was difficult to find a place to sit. Not anymore. I felt comfortable going there to meet my student. We're both vaccinated and wore our masks the whole time. We sat on opposite ends of the table. It felt good to get back to volunteering. It always gives me a good feeling. I couldn't help but take this picture with my last name in it!


We had a little work done around the house. They just finished fixing up our retaining wall. It looks so much better. It's been difficult to get any work done between Covid and this crazy weather. We're all set for the winter now!


I got this candle from my daughter last year. You have access to read the featured book while burning the candle. I'm not sure how the candle will smell but it's supposed to be appropriate for whatever book it features. Sounds interesting!!

That's my likes for the week! I hope all is well and you all have a great weekend!!

  3. How kind you are to volunteer your time like that. Libraries are wonderful places. Ours has just undergone a major reno which worked out well with Covid but not fully open yet. Can't wait to get back in. Always so nice to have jobs done and dusted. Neat candle.

  4. The cat house is awesome. Your wall is lovely. How cool to be able to do some volunteer work again. I really stretched myself thin today going to church quilting after working 10 hours. The candle is intriguing. I wonder if it is similar to the homesick candles. My daughter loves the Oregon candle.

  7. I'm intrigued by how that candle will work and by the smell. Wonder where your daughter got it. Probably online, no doubt. I say it's time to burn it since you got it last year and then report to all of us about it! Hahaha! Glad you're back to tutoring -- a least there's a semblance of normal.
