Covered by the Red, White and Blue (TTT 133)

The Red, White, and Blue covers me from night until dawn. The fabric was sown together with love. Just for fun, tonight I made list of red, white and blue things that I love:

Red - Dress. Found a perfect 4th of July dress in my daughter's closet.

White - Milk for my coffee.

Blue - Blueberries. We had some with our dinner.

Red - Strawberries. We had them with our dinner, too.

White - Vanilla Ice Cream. It went on top of the Crisp we had for dessert tonight.

Blue - Comfy Blue Jeans.

Red - Cranberries. The crisp was an apple cranberry crisp.

White - My daughter's shirt. It remained white despite lots of messy food.

Blue - Light blue birkenstocks.

Red - Chips. Farkle is a great way for me to relax.

White - Carnations. The flowers in my bedroom.

Blue - Sky. It was pretty outside this morning.

Red - Lego blocks. The kids played nicely with legos numerous times today.

White - Paper. My daughter loves to color and cover up the white.

Blue - Popsicles. Two of my kids had blue Popsicles today.

Red - Peppers. We had red peppers in our salad tonight. I love red peppers.

White - Noise. I love to fall asleep with white noise (like a fan).

Blue - Bathrobe. It's source of comfort for me every morning. My robe is soft and comfy.

Red - Polish. My toe nails are red.

White - Puffs. We are living on Puffs with Lotion because of seasonal allergies.

Blue - Magazine. The cover of the magazine I bought today is blue.

Red - Candle Sconce. I love candles. A red candle sconce hangs in my kitchen.

White - Hat. Enjoyed wearing my white Seattle Mariner's hat this week.

Blue - Eyes. Took a beautiful picture of one of my blue-eyed boys yesterday.

I am thankful for the quilt, the hands that made the quilt, the service to our country that the quilt honors, and the country the flag represents.

I am thankful that I can celebrate freedom in this country.

This is my Thursday Thanks Tank (TTT 133).
