Three Things Thursday: Cherry Ice, Disc Golf, Mad Cleaning, & Some Pretties



Welcome back to Three Things Thursday, a way to fill your blogs and social media with the happy!


Three Things Thursday is a simple concept that everyone is encouraged to play along with. All it requires is listing three (or more!) things that are making your life awesome. Please note! The three things you choose each week do not need to be big, huge, mighty, impressive things. In fact, I think it’s much better to focus on smaller, sillier things…because focusing on those little bits of joy and the gigglesnorts that they bring…well, that’s where day-to-day contentment lives, I believe.


So, how do you participate? Easy as falling off a log! Whip up a blog post about three things that are making you smile…then share it on the link up in this post. Don’t want to do a whole blog post? Feel free to post some pictures on Facebook or Instagram! If you tag me in your pictures, I 100% promise to give them appropriate love.❤


Just one more thing! Three Things Thursday posts actually don’t need to be done on Thursdays! I leave the link up active for the whole week every week…so you can be grateful on your own schedule.🙂


Okay, here we goooooo…



Before we start with this week’s happy pictures, I want to extend an invitation to you awesome Three Things Thursday participants. I am looking to do a major overhaul of my blog (and business), and I don’t feel like Three Things Thursday is a great fit for where I’m trying to go with things (though gratitude will always be part of my daily life!). I would love so much to see another blogger take this series over and continue it long term. I’ve been doing these posts every Thursday for years, and I hate the idea of the series just going away. If you would be interested in becoming the permanent replacement host for Three Things Thursday, please let me know in the comments (or send me a message). There are a few things you should know before putting your name in the hat to become the new host:

  • Obviously, it’s a weekly commitment.
  • It would really be best to have a paid Inlinkz account for the link up. (Subscriptions are only $3 per month.)
  • You would need to provide your own link up button (or use the standard blue frog one), featured image, badge and whatnot.
  • I would be happy to promote your Three Things Thursday posts…and will probably continue to participate in one way or another.

So, yeah, if you’re interested, please let me know. 🙂


Now on to the gratitude!




Our favorite park has added an 18-hole disc golf course, and the grand opening was last weekend. John and I had an absolute blast and look forward to many, many rounds of disc golf. 🙂 Of course, stopping for SnoCones just made the day even better. Yum!

I’m on a mission to learn about the wildflowers (and lots of other stuff) in my very own yard. Here are some lovelies that I’m working on identifying. Thanks to some research and some help from Instagram comments, I have it narrowed down to crowpoison (false garlic) or Star of Bethlehem, but I’m still not certain about the identification. Either way, it sure is pretty. 🙂

Part of prepping for a business overhaul is getting rid of all of the junk that’s making my brain heavy. I’m really not one for keeping a lot of junk and clutter, but still that mess builds up over the years (especially when you have tons of homeschooling supplies still sitting about). I’ve donated sooooo much stuff to Goodwill this week, recycled/threw some stuff away, and have a nice box of arts & crafts supplies ready to donate to an elementary school. 🙂 It feels nice to be out from under all of that stuff! Just look at that pile of goodies on the floor waiting for new homes!
