Friday Favorites - April

April 24, 2020

Hello blog friends.

It's been a while since I last did a Friday Favorites post.  I'd like to share with you what I'm loving right now.

1.  Art Work
Every Friday Jenna from the blog The Painted Apron posts art work she does for her Fearless Friday series.  Jenna sketched a bike with flowers. 

I liked Jenna's sketch so much that it inspired me to try and draw it too.  I used a pencil to draw out the bike and flowers.  I then outlined the sketch with a thin black marker.  I then used colored makers to fill in the rest of the sketch.  

I enjoyed drawing the bike and this sketch reminds me of a spring day.  Thanks Jenna for inspiring me to sketch! 

2.  Lunch at Home
While we've been sheltering in place here at home we've been taking turns making meals for each other.  

My daughter made me an avocado grilled cheese sandwich for lunch which was so good and yummy.

3.  Spring Flowers
I loved seeing spring flowers popping up in my garden.  

4.  Zoom Zumba Work Out Schedule
Since my gym has been closed during this coronavirus I have been taking Zumba classes on Zoom.  Our instructors from the gym have been teaching the classes along with my gym friends.  It's so much fun and we still get to dance together.  This happens to be one of my highlights of the day.  

5.  Bosco's Spa Day
Mr. JCL and I usually bath Bosco about once a month.  Bosco is such a good boy during his bath and he always smells so good.  I love when his hair gets soft and fluffy.

6.  Starbucks Coffee
The weather was beautiful on Sunday and we sat outside.  We enjoyed the hot Starbucks coffee I made. 

7.  Takeout Lunch
I was so happy when Mr. JCL suggested we do takeout for lunch on Saturday.  We have a Just Salad restaurant in our area and we ordered takeout salads.  These salads are so good and loaded with a lot of good veggies.  I had a Greek Salad that was so delicious.  Our salads were so good that I forgot to take a photo of the other salads.  Probably because I was hangry!  LOL!

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a happy Friday and weekend.

  1. Beautiful art, yummy lunch...and oh how I miss Starbucks. Haven’t had one in 6 weeks! Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks for your blog visit Andrea. I make our Starbucks coffee at home know since we can't visit the store. Enjoy the weekend.

  2. Your sketch is very pretty! I know I should do some art while I'm at home more but I haven't started anything. And I want to crochet too! I really should get some fun projects going. Love that sandwich and the salad and coffee would be my favs too! Take care!

  3. Great job Julie! Thanks so much for the shout out! It is so nice that we are all appreciating the simple things so much, like a tasty lunch, sipping coffee outside etc. That's so cool you can take your class on Zoom with your friends!

  4. That salad looks so good. It's been a nice treat to get take out meals and Starbucks once in awhile. That grilled cheese looks amazing! Bosco is so cute in the bath. What a good boy! You painting is so awesome!

  5. How fun to see all the things you have been up too. Little Bosco getting a bath super cute. Buddy is going on Tuesday as they will come out to your car and get your dog and then take him in and bring him back out to your car when you come back to pick him up. Buddy gets a bath and nails once a month so he is way overdue. Those salads sound yummy.
    Happy Saturday.

  6. All of those things are wonderful, Julie! The avocado grilled cheese sounds divine. Bosco is adorable! And daffodils are among my favorite spring flowers.
