Three Things Thursday: Snow, Antique Cookbooks, & Dinosaurs on My Phone (Plus One Very Silly Kitty)



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…




That snow I babbled about in last weekend’s coffee share? Yeah, it actually happened! 😀 And then it did a magic trick…it had all disappeared by that very same afternoon. (Kind of the perfect snow situation, no?)

John and I had a couple of hours to goof around in town the other day, so we stopped in a favorite thrift store…and found these two awesome cookbooks from the 1940s. At 75 cents each, we just couldn’t walk away…and now we’ve decided we’d like a collection of old cookbooks for our kitchen. (Not for actual cooking or anything…more because we think they look neat, and they’re fun to flip through.) 🙂

Whilst procrastinating earlier in the week, I managed to change the theme and every single icon on my phone to this awesome dinosaur/retro-paleontologist vibe. I can’t take a picture of my lock screen to show it to you, but it has a fabulous dinosaur skeleton on it. I’m loving the whole set up. 🙂 (I also changed my ring tone to the Knight Rider theme song…and my notification sound is now a Star Trek communicator noise…because I know how to use my time wisely. Yep, I do.) 😉


Three Things Thursday: Dino Phone Theme | Nerd in the Brain




Okay, I don’t usually share things here that I’ve posted on Instagram, but this fluffbutt just won’t be ignored. I mean, look at how much effort he put into posing for his audience! I think he looks a wee bit drunk, but others think he’s doing his best “I’m too sexy” pose…I’ll let you decide where you think he was going with this. 😀

    We got almost 2′ of snow and yes, it’s still hanging around thanks to sub-30F temperatures. I also like that dinosaur theme quite a bit, but I have moved past the modification of my mobile at this point as it turns into a major time-suck. Yes, that cat is definitely drunk! Was his milk fermented?

      I don’t do a lot of phone customization either…I tend to get it to a way I’m pleased with and leave it. Chances are those dinosaurs will be roaming on my phone until I get a new one. 🙂

      Enjoy your snow! 😉
