Friday’s Hunt v 1.9 -- "I" is for ...

Friday's Hunt the week of February 26th is :  (1) Starts with "I"; (2) Week's Favorite; and (3) Something Blue

 
1.a.  My "I" is for "I'm Watching You."
Actually we both were watching the little tug boat move our ship away from the dock where we boarded.

But Mrs. Jim (here) caught me taking her picture.  Most time she humors me and doesn't complain.  Mostly, when I'm driving she isn't real keen on that, taking pictures of her or anything.

1.b.  My "I" is also for Italian Food.  I found a whole lot ready to take home and heat at our local "Trader Joe's" grocery store.


2.  Week's Favorite would be younger kids art especially when it is my granddaughter's.  This may be her first cat, for sure the first I can remember.
Do you remember your grandkid's art work?  You may have some salted away for future admiration.  Chances are you won't look at it very much. 

Then a while later, when your kids or spouse is going through the things you could not longer take with you, most all of it will get trashed.

Do you remember your first grade art?  My mom saved mine, it was a boy with a horse, both were stick figures.  I never graduated from the stick people drawing stage, even after a few 'Art' classes. (link to the boy, I still draw him)(link to my Stick Man book and theatre play post)

3.  Something Blue:

That would be the "Headless Girl Dressed in Blue."

You may have seen her wearing something else but her favorite color is Blue.  I love her heart necklace.  Wish I could remember where we were and I would get one for Mrs. Jim (shhh).




(4)  A lagniappe for you, a Poem for You:

Red Radish and the Beet

Said Red Radish to her friend Beet
“I’m Queen Vegie here” in her tweet
Corn said “real corny”
Trumpet vine, “horny”
Mary C picked them both, to eat

The Fine Print:
 - Teresa of Eden Hills is running this meme, Friday's Hunt. She has three alternatives for us to post about but this one, Alphabet series, will be the one I will try to follow and post about.  - Her rules are: "Welcome to linkup for Friday’s Hunt. It’s very simple. Anyone can participate. The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter." 
 - The Mr. Linky address
here has a list of others who are participating if you would to read what these folk are doing for the Friday post  - For the week of February 19, our assignment was to post on any or all of these ideas: (1) Starts with I, (2) Week’s Favorite, and (3) Something Blue, and (4) another lagniappe poem for you.

A delightful post indeed, warm greetings and best wishes!
 
Mrs. Jim didn't look happy about that photograph one bit.

The Italian food all looked so very good. I'm hungry now.

Have a fabulous day and weekend. ☺
 
Hello, your wife does not look happy you took her photo. I like the blue, pretty top! Italian food is my favorite, yum! Happy weekend to you!
 
quite the artist
 
What an endearing drawing in your Favorite photo. Mrs. Jim truly has an eye on you. An tha food looks yammy.

Indeed Jim, your wife does not look amused having her photo taken. I think you should really search your mind for where you saw the heart necklace and surprise her with a pretty gift.
The porcini mushroom lasagne would be in my basket, I like vegetarian dishes sometimes.
 
I love Italian food! Easy to prepare makes it even better. I have no grandkids yet. Maybe someday... Of course, I am not an artist at all, and I'm pretty sure my stick people are even hard to identify. LOL Lovely necklace. Hope you can remember where you saw it. Thanks so much for joining Friday's Hunt.
 
Great choices-love the drawing - so precious.!
 
I love the cat picture ! She is talented, believe me I paint !
 
I have the art the grandkids send/give to me. I save it for quite awhile but then it has to go to make room for more. I have a few saved things on small pieces of paper that I use as bookmarks from when our girls were young. But you are so right, you can't save everything. We learned that lesson when cleaning out my in laws house after the last one had passed away, so much saved with no meaning for those of us doing the clearing out.

 
The square in my header is the Grand'Place in Brussels !
 
I am all for Italian food. I am sorry I didn't get around to the blogs this week. After we lost Pricilla we then lost a rooster and then one of our ducks. It was a bad week on the Farm.
