{Happy Wednesday}



Don't you just love the smell of Gardenia's? I love cuttings of them off of my bush to give my home that sweet smell.

I hope that you all enjoyed Memorial Day. I stayed very busy working outside in the yards, my little veggie garden, re-potting some herbs along with other things, and grilling some mighty fine pork chops! 

 I'll have to show you all some of my heirloom herbs next week. 

 Today, let's have a little fun shall we? I will post the correct answer at the end of the post so play fair....let me know how many you get right.












Before I give you the answers I have to share a few things and one being none other than my little room. LOL! I know you all are tired of hearing about it at this point but I am really beginning to enjoy it now. I did finally break down and make a run to Hobby Lobby and found some pretty white roses to go in my red planter box. 


 Snapped this in a hurry with cell phone but I love the wild roses.

And I found this cute piece.

 And as you can see my handwriting is the worse ever. (but, I am the only one that has to look at this, right? LOL!)  Boy, there's tons of chalk boards to pick from these days. But this was small and cute. I decided for a few weeks to leave my WORD for 2017 on the chalk board. I am BELIEVING God about something right now in my life and I am simply waiting on Him to marvel me. 

I worked on Bible Study in my new remodeled room along with some research I am working on right now for other projects. Y'all know I have always got a project!


 Speaking of Hobby Lobby....They already have out their Fall and some Christmas! I could not believe it! Actually, they had very little 4th of July things but plenty of FALL! TRUE! 

I still have a to-do list for the room but, at least I am not where I started!

Now for the answers:
1: Swee'pea
2: Peanut butter and jelly
3: Whole Foods
4: 1850's
5: Carbon dioxide
6: Coke 
I only answered 3 out of 6

And lastly today I want to leave you with a few of my favorite sayings...Some good food for thought.

Life is a compilation of many different seasons. Don't be afraid to let go of one season in order to grab hold of the next one

There is a difference in being the boss and being a leader. Leadership takes maturity and wisdom.

Sometimes you just have to say "No" which means you have to be willing to disappoint others in order to set boundaries in your life. 

There is no lie so sly than the one we tell ourselves.

If we as Christians do what is right then God will take care of what is wrong.

We can't continue to do the same things the same way and expect different results.

In order to have friends you must first be one.

I do hope that you all have a wonderful rest of the week and weekend. Enjoy life....one day at a time............
Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  5. Enjoyed the questions and I got half of them right. :o)) And, the quotes, loved all of them. Enjoyable post! I'm enjoying reading blogs this afternoon while I continue to get my wits about it following my procedure this morning. So glad to have that behind me!

  7. {{{Big, big smiles}}}---Hey, I got 5 of them correct, lol. Since I was born in Indiana, but raised in Florida, we still call it "pop". Always will. A joy to see you post, Cindy. smiles

    1. I hear people call it pop and soda . Yes I was little late ousting this week . So much going on it seems but that's never ending .

  8. I can't believe we used to watch Popeye and think it was good. :-) Some of the questions were geared to Americans so I only got two correct and I do love all the quotes.
    We don't have gardenias in our Canadian gardening zone but I know how lovely their fragrance is. All sodas in Canada are simply called pop - shortened from soda pop.

  9. I got a few of the answers right, Cindy, while I was trying to smell your gardenias through my computer! Your planter box with the roses looks so pretty and I'm sure you're enjoying your new work area. I enjoyed the Food for Thought, my friend. Have a blessed week. xo

  10. Oh pooh, I only got 3 out of 6 too! I was excited about the first question because I knew it but also because that little Popeye family is special to me. Not sure why, but 35 years ago I decided to decorate my newborn daughter's room in Popeye. I still have the ceramic figurines I painted for it. Just a little nostalgic for me. Great post! Your Magnolia's are so perfect that they look like a great faux bunch! Love your food for thought thoughts too!

  11. Hi Cindy! I enjoyed your quiz, and I didn't get them all right either. I thought that brown sugar cinnamon wasn't an original Pop Tart. Oh well! I did get Swee' Pea right though!
    That red planter is so eye catching, I just love it.
    I had.a lovely Memorial Day with my daughter and her family, we grilled out and took a hike in a local park. Just being with family is a treat.
    Have a wonderful week!

  12. I got four right! So much fun! I like the smell of gardenias too and I like that red vase with the white roses. Oh, the study at your desk sounds like it's a comfortable place to enjoy the Lord. I like the saying that we cannot keep doing the same things and expect different results!!!

    1. They smell so sweet. Pam I will have to post a picture. I have some Rosemary that is three years old now. I've cut off of it so much to use in foods but still it is very healthy and pretty. I even have a smaller piece I pulled from that same plant and now it is growing really nice. I also have an heirloom sage that I am struggling with to keep healthy and some cilantro. I love cooking with herbs but more so I just love the smell. Have a great rest of the week.

    1. Melanie, I love herbs. The last few years I've had a time with Basil for some reason. Two years ago I had the prettiest, healthy looking basil ever. Struggling with it right now. But I do love the smell and so good on pizza.
