Sure wish I had a super-duper list of likes for this #50 I Like Thurs post but I don't. Just know that it is a special one. I'll like that!
Like of the Day: My beautiful orchid is now in full bloom. It started opening up the first bud of seven on a stem weeks ago. Every week one would open, sometimes with the next bud enlarging. Yesterday #7 opened up.

These flowers last for weeks. I wouldn't be surprised if I had at least one flower for Halloween!

The other day while at the store I spied other colors of orchids in pots. Almost picked up another one but there wasn't a price on it so I passed it by. I was looking at a white one with purple spots, just in case you were wondering!
On the TV like list would have to be the season finale of American Ninja Warrior. Such challenges those courses presented. Looking forward to the next season but in the meantime I'll enjoy the return of Survivor. I like that show too!
While watching a cooking show with Mom, someone wrapped some filling (I don't recall what they were using) in a tortilla, folded it up like a burrito/egg roll, and then browned it in a skillet with a little melted butter (seam-side down, then flip).
I really like doing this now with any filling I choose! This one had some pulled taco-seasoned beef and, of course, smoked cheddar cheese.
So crunchy and delicious! I've done several variations and they all turn out good. Just don't overfill the tortilla or you will have a hard time wrapping it up.
Keeping current on the book I'm reading, "The Disappearing Act" by Catherine Steadman: Blah! I told Mom I finally figured out what is bothering me about this book. I just don't like the main character! There's nothing to her, no substance, no anything. I'll finish the book because I'd like to see how this wraps up but I could care less about the heroine. She's a flaky, vain, airhead. 'Nuff said.
Let's talk quilting for a minute. I like my guild, Hearts 'n' Hands. Most meetings we have a Free Table where members drop off things to giveaway. Sometimes there's plenty to choose from, sometimes it's slim pickins. Most times I don't even tempt myself because I'm really stocked with fabric (ahem!). At the August meeting, my first in-person since way back when, I had a few things to drop off and some fabric caught my eye. Probably because I knew right away where it would be perfect!
These orange owls with purple eyes on a black background = LOVE!!! Goes perfectly -- color-wise and theme-wise -- to my "BOO"! It's already in place and the grand finish will be shown in Saturday's post. Stay tuned!
That wraps up my likes this week. There are others that also share their weekly likes at Not Afraid of Color. I'll be linking up there too and you can read ALL the likes there as well. I'll bet you come away with a chuckle or two!
