Channels of Appreciation

 
 
So for this post I am doing a real blogger-type thing and participating in an organized activity of gratitude.  These are in no particular order and are not likely to be the 10 things I am MOST thankful for (which I attribute to my random thoughts) but certainly some important ones.  Speaking of ones...
 
 
#1  My friend Peebs whose interesting takes on this format inspired me to try it out.  She does all sorts of blogg-y things like this full of lots of great writing.  She even made me that sign up there in honor of my web address.  And that leads me to take a big...
 
 
 
 
#2  (and 3 and 4) The dogs of All Things Bright and Lovely.  First we have Mr. Skip, sweet and often foggy poodle of the aforementioned Peebs.  Next is Tedy, the cute canine of my first wonderful follower, Sweet Amy .  And 3rd is the dearest doggie down under, donut fiend Bert.  His mum can best be experienced here >> Siobhan  Most all you get to see here is cats cats cats, but I do have a soft spot for dogs as well.
 
 

 #5  My favorite sports team, the Indiana Fever.  Opening their next playoff round Thursday night.  You can bet I will be attached to the television for that one :)
 

 
 
#6   Stunning summer fashions such as the above.  The first by the stylish  Jenniya and that second, so-amazing shot comes to us from the wonderful fashion mind of Lidia  And no fashion post is ever complete without a shot by the brilliant and lovely Sweet Amy
 
And thanks to all of you that have made the summer so fantastic with your genius and beauty.  But now and by "but now" I mean finally...
 

 
#7  The tights are back in town!  Yes, fall and cooler temperatures are starting to arrive.  Sad news to some I know but wonderful news for me.  Above are 2 early adopters to the autumnal style.  First we have Lauren with another of her classic outfits paired with patterned tights.  Next we have the artistic and gorgeous Paige Joanna with those shorts of a magic hue.  Both such lovely welcomes to fall.
 
 
#8  This meal ^^^^  Nothing better than a trip to The Four Seasons (no, not that one) and a bowl of lemon chicken rice soup accompanied by a piece of banana cream pie.  A taste sensation unparalleled.
 

 
#9  I am starting to get re-tweeted.  My Twitter account is such a sad little thing.  I have few followers which leaves me disinterested mostly to tweet.  However, the above 2 examples (and a few other since) wherein the National Basketball Association and the Tulsa Shock of the women's version of such both saw fit to share my little words of fun with their followers was very encouraging.
 
 
#10  Llamas.  Always llamas.  Forever llamas.  Viva los llamas.
 
I made it through.  10 things out of 10 billion trillion million I am thankful for.  And, because I am corny but own it fully, indeed I am thankful for anyone who is reading this.  You guys make such a positive impact on my life, I wish you could fully know.  You are my eternal #11 on any list such as this.  All my love, be good to yourself, never forget how amazing you are.

If you and Bert we're not existing in the same time, I would have to say he was a reincarnation of you. Although he probably doesn't have a tights fetish . Despite that personality oddity, I'm thankful for you as well! Peebs

Nice post. Thanks so much for including Tedy and me. I must admit I'm happy that it's still warm enough here not to have to wear tights yet. I don't use twitter that much either, I have it linked to Instagram.

I know you are a beach bunny and cling to the last golden rays of summer and, for that reason alone, I feel a little sad at its passing...but only a little :) Now if we could only get you interested in colorful tights :) Twitter is like a deserted island for me and I am Tom Hanks talking to a volleyball mostly. But still I try :)

Awesome first entry into the Ten Things of Thankful - I love that 'Peebs' got you to join in with us this weekend. The fashions are really pretty, and the Banana Creme Pie looks Un. Believable! Just WOW!

Nice to see Skip over here too, along with his doggy pals.

Gratz on your retweets - slow but sure, you'll get there.

And YAY on having so many other things to also be thankful for :)

Welcome to the TToT hop! I loved your list, and of course loved seeing Skip at the very beginning...he's a regular, as I'm sure you know. :)

And I LOVE the black and white dress...SO cute. Thanks for sharing! :)

excellent dog!
Welcome to the TToT the coolest/weirdest bloghop on the virtual scene today. (My co-hosts take care of the cool....I'm in charge of weird).

One of the best things about the-blog-that-Lizzi-built is that it is a true 2 day affair...people come and go right up until midnight Sunday. This is a good thing, as I am limited in my time for most of today.

Llamas are awesome, especially those named Lilly (according to my Miss Lily) ;-) We are also total cat people, but some dogs can be so cute! Love the fashion shots, so cute outfits!! And hubby requests a banana cream pie.. Can't wait to be healthy again!

Welcome to the hop! I love the dog photos. Bert reminds me of my guide dog puppy, Drexel, who made my 10 Things of Thankful list again this week.

Hope to see you again next week!

HEY, IT'S SKIP! And welcome to our TToT hop! Love tights in the fall and winter. AWESOME retweet! (I'm a rather pathetic Twitter-er myself). And I can't take my eyes off that pie. I love pie....
