Happy Thursday, bloggers and readers! Ever since I was a kid, Thursday was my favorite day of the week. Not Friday, not Saturday, but Thursday.
The idea of the weekend being near always excited me more than actually being in the weekend. School was almost done, the light at the end of the tunnel began to shine, and my motivation to drive through grew stronger than Zeus.
As an adult, living in “real life,” Thursdays are less exciting. The weekend means more work, house work, and finally calling people back. Any social plans usually default to weekends, where they are frequently cancelled due to domestic, school or work-related issues that need even more of my time.
Talk about departure from what really makes us joyful!
It may be a small gesture, but I want to take back the excitement of Thursdays by posting a fun, carefree, courageously creative and silly Thingamajig Thursday post.
What is a “Thingamajig Thursday” post?
First, I’m glad you asked.
Second, thingamajigs are random, cool, different, and creative ideas, recipes, crafts, videos, and media that intrigue and inspire us humans out of our ruts.
I can’t say for sure if I’ll continuously post Thingamajig Thursdays, but will try my hardest to post them as frequently as possible.
First up! My very first pin, ever:
I believe my caption for it is being thankful for how beautiful our planet is. Remember that we are privileged to be able to experience such wonderment and COLOR in our lifetime!
Secondly, a very cool and easy DIY (for your awesome thrift store find):
I’m a total sucker for home improvements and makeovers. But this is a great and simple trick to update any creepy baby or cat statues into a hip and modern-day decor item. Gift it or display it yourself!
Third up, nerds represent!
I never liked the original “Keep Calm” posters that seemed to catch on as rapidly as Sunshade Sunglasses or Gangnam Style, but this nerdy take on it may change my mind.
By about 2%.
And finally, a big take-home RECIPE PIN!
Kalyn is an absolute low-carb genius! These look more amazing, and more fresh, than actual pizza. I’ve tried many vegetables as chip and bread substitutes without feeling deprived at all.
Cauliflower garlic bread, anyone? Maybe on another post.
How many of you use Pinterest? Are you a fan, or is it as mindless and time-sucking as Facebook or Twitter?
Until next time, mates!
