I Like Thursday #118

Welcome to my 118th installment of I Like Thursday. 

Summer is so busy but I like my little girl cat.  I thought about naming her Nutmeg, but the kids watched the movie Bird Box and because it took me so long to name my cats, they named them Girl and Boy after characters in the movie.  Girl has became friendly, likes to crawl up on my lap for ear scritches, and waits outside for Bobbin and I to come out. 

I have these 2 baskets that I got when I purchased some flowers a few years ago.  I guess to her it is perfect. 

I like my new bed.  My house is weird shaped and getting a queen sized box spring up the stairs is near impossible, unless I don't mind destroying my walls.  I decided to start I would get a new bed frame and a platform bed would be the way to go.  I saw this bed and thought it looked like it would look nice in my room.

It is a simple white iron bed and without the box springs is a nice height now.  Next will be researching to buy a new mattress. 

I like that my cucumbers, which I started from seed have blooms.

These are two of my cucumber plants. 

My zucchini has blooms now too.

While many people complain that they can't go out and eat,  I don't go out much anyway, because eating alone in a restaurant is a bit weird.  But I do pick up orders and I like that I can order from the local Chinese food restaurant, 5 Guys and Fries, some of the local Coney Islands, and Subway. 

I have been working 6 days a week and my day off is usually filled with house cleaning, yard work, and other chores so I don't have a lot to share.  My book picks for the week are.

Exhume by Danielle Girard.  Dr. Annabella Schwartzmann is a medical examiner for the San Francisco Police Department, with a past.  Anna has been stalked by her ex husband for the past 7 years.  The most recent murder she investigates seems just not right.  I enjoyed this book and how Anna after escaping an abusive marriage has remade herself and gets strong enough to fight back, finally turning the tables on her ex husband. 

I reread The Cater Street Hangman by Anne Perry.  I had read these years ago, and decided to reread the series.

I am currently reading The Blight Way by Patrick McManus.  So far I am thoroughly enjoying this book the humor is laugh out loud.  Can't wait to see how it all turns out. 

Now head over to LeeAnna's at Not Afraid of Color to check out the other I Like Thursday posts. 


  1. Awww who would love a kitty in a basket. She's adorable. Nice bed and your veggies are looking good. We are getting some every other day which is perfect for us. Dunkin says hi to Bobbin and Girl lol

  2. Pretty bedstead--love that "shabby chic" look of the white...looks so good with quilts I think...I hate that our new bed is SO HIGH up!! I feel like I need a stepstool to get in and out...we plan to look into a platform one, too...

    Your veggies are looking you are a busy gal...
    hope you can still get some sewing time in...
    hugs from humid shoreline here Julierose

  3. You are busy working and I hope it is a safe environment. Girl is very cute and I love that bedstead too. It would look good here too. Isn't it fun to have some growing things to keep an eye on. We have another heat warning for the weekend.

  4. I like the way you are decorating the bedroom, with white iron and dogs... the wee basket o'cat is so sweet, with her widdle eyes closed. Congrats on the vege... I'm jelly... must start early next year growing in the garage til June when they can go outside. Fresh cukes are a fave of mine. We used to love take out too. I'm bored with my cooking but then right now I'd probably be content with people chow. It's the prep work... I'm not into it.

  5. Hi Colette! Look how cute Girl looks sitting in the basket. Doesn't that just warm your heart?!! Ooh, I'm going to check out the ME book. I used to love Patricia Cornwell but she hasn't written anything new lately. Thanks!! ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. Great cukes and zucchini! Love the new bed and I’m curious about which mattress you choose. Especially, after so many work hours.

  7. I love the sweet picture of your kitty in the basket! It does look the perfect size for her. Hooray on the cucumber and zucchini blossoms, too! I have a tiny cucumber on my plant - fingers crossed that it grows! Your new bed is so pretty and looks comfy!

  8. like your new bed. isn't it nice to eat eat what you planted

  9. Kitty in a basket! New England hallways and doors can be tall and narrow - a split queen boxspring is the only way to go. Enjoy your books!

  10. I like both Anne Perry's Pitts and Monks series. I wonder if she'll do any new stories of the Pitts when the kids are still young. She's already written 3 novels in the Daniel Pitt series. Yeah, son of Charlotte and Thomas.

  11. Wow! You are working a lot! Your little cat looks so content in that basket! That bed is so pretty, reminds me of the bed I had when I was a kid! Stay safe and have a great week!

  12. Your kitty looks so happy. Love the bed as well!

  13. Girl looks like a real sweetheart. I’ve been researching beds lately too. It’s so hard to decide. The quilt looks so pretty on your iron bed.

  14. I loved Bird Box! Nice name for the kitty! Your bed looks great. I like your quilt too! Your cucumber plant is huge! I always enjoy reading your book suggestions. I've marked a few to read!
