{It's A Feel Good Kind Of Day}


My lilies are still so very pretty. I have surely been enjoying them. They originated from my granny's lilies many years ago. I wish I had a whole field full of flowers.

I kept two of the grandgirls so their mom could be a part of the Spartan race with some of the folks from our church and we had a breakfast picnic in the living room on a blanket.

Of course we had a makeup and dress up day too! There is never a dull moment around my house when the grands are there.

My family loves being a part of races, runs, and etc. Me? I will keep the grandbabies and have a fun day! LOL!

I took one day and made a batch of homemade pretzels. My mercy! They were so good....a little time consuming but when you have a hankering for a soft pretzel then you make a batch.

Well, some of my pretzels wasn't as pretty as others but they sure did taste wonderful! I don't think I will ever like what we call "The Mall" pretzels as good after making Alton Brown's pretzels. (Food Network)

I just had to show you this pretty taco dish my daughter Melissa made for Memorial Day. Isn't it too cute to eat?

Remember in one of my post I showed you this picture of fresh bread that my oldest granddaughter was baking? Her first time of baking bread and it turned out so good.

Look how pretty her bread turned out! She is quiet the baker. Love it!

We were able to attend corporate worship with our family and church family for the first time yesterday since the Covid began. It was such a refreshing time and I felt like a kid at Christmas. Loved every moment of being in the House of the Lord with my family and church family.

Well those of you on blogger I am sure by now know that blogger is changing things up a bit again! NO, I don't like it because It means I have to learn something new. GRR! BUT...with the changing of technology I guess we either learn it or we get left behind. So my blog has changed a bit and I will probably revamp it when I have more time to sit down and mess with it. Right now I have too many other fun things I'd rather do! LOL!
My friend Linda from https://thatsmesimplylinda.blogspot.com/

Simply Linda
helped me to figure a few things out and it's a good thing she did because I was digging in the ice cream bucket for a stress reliever! LOL!

In closing today I will share the first few words and scripture of my morning devotional with you. Maybe this is just what you need to read today. God always has a way in ministering to us.

Your word is a lamp to my feet . And a light to my path. - Psalm ...

Maybe some of you are in the midst of making a touch decision. One of the first steps toward making a tough decision is to seek God in prayer.

Perhaps you are in the midst of a difficult decision right now.  If so, remember, God's Word will show you the way.

I hope that you all are enjoying the first day of June and have a wonderful week.

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  1. Wow, this sure looks a lot different! I loved your post, but it will take some getting used to with all the changes we are having to make. I am proud of you for jumping right in and trying! You are a smart cookie! And those pretzels look good enough to eat! Now I want one. Wondering about your church service and how you all handled all the restrictions. Would love to hear about it, maybe in a private message. Our church hasn't reopened yet, and it will be the end of June before we do, and with a LOT of restrictions. It will be very challenging. I am curious how other denominations and churches are handling it. Happy you were able to be there with your church family. I am missing it so much. God bless you and have a blessed week. Your kiddos are so precious. You are blessed!!!!

    1. As with old blogger there are lots of templates but I just wanted to get a post done and was already aggravated so went with what I could at the time. Thank the Lord for Linda walking me through some of it! The pretzels are MUST try! So good. Next batch I am doing half with cinnamon sugar.

  2. What a beautifully written post. It is a very tough time for us, every day of our lives! I try not to worry because I know it doesn't help and I pray a LOT! Love your lilies and sweet family photos. Enjoy your week my friend! Linda is the BEST and has supported me in the past! She's a great blog buddy to have! Hugs!

    1. Thank you. I try not to worry too and I am reminded that worry will not add one second to my life. But sometimes, like so many others, I find myself in a pit and having to dig my way out. Praise the Lord we serve a NEVER changing God in this FOREVER changing world.

  3. I used the new blogger today, not liking it at all. But I guess that is progress so I'll bite the bullet and make it work. Always enjoy visiting you and your family. Hey, a breakfast picnic in the living room sounds like fun, Mr D and I might have to try it, of course once we get down it's iffy if we can get up. bahahaha!! Hope you have a wonderful day and a wonderful June.

    1. I am not liking it too much either Miss Mary, But I since I use blogger to basically journal about my family life and keep up with my blogging friends I am going to try. I would really like more of my personal touch with the new blogger. I will have to play around with it when I can.

  4. It took me a long time to switch over to Blogger and now they want to change it. I loved my old site because you can be so creative. But it does cost money. I also think that bloggers could not figure out how to use the inline frames and different buttons. I have over 300 pages there and my webhome is 20 years old now. I really need to save things I have written through the years before I take the site down. Your pretzels look so good. I like to eat them with mustard. Enjoy your week!

  5. How fun to have those two little angels with you, Cindy!! Your pretzels look wonderful, and your daughter’s taco dish is so pretty. I love that casserole dish of hers, too. Your granddaughter is quite the baker, I must say! Thank you for leaving us with perfect words to ponder. We always need that! Happy Summer! ❤️

    1. LOL! I couldn't figure how where the "post a new post" was! LOL! But then I started looking things up and figured out a few things. I would like to change it a bit more but not today! The beach is calling my name! LOL!

  7. I tried out the new blogger and it took me a few minutes to find the "create a new post" button! I hope we'll still have access to the "legacy blogger"...

  8. Your bagels look amazing and I just know they tasted that way too. The Taco dish looks so tasty and the braided bread too.
    So good to know you can actually go to church again. I hope that soon all the restrictions will no longer be needed.

  10. Everything in life seems to be a learning curve of late. I will try to figure out blogger myself. Ugh I am like you and do not like to change things I already have a grip on. the pretzels look yummy.
    Hugs,

  11. Thanks for reminding me I need to look into the new Blogger. I don't like change either. Thanks for the scripture. These are difficult times in our country. We need to be seeking God more than ever.

  13. You have to be he most fun grandma ever. I am a little concerned about what my blog will look like when this change takes place. I may have to get with Linda to have her revamp mine too if I can't figure it out! What does she charge for her services?

    1. I have got to take time to sit down and revamp it a little. Linda had to show me where to even start a new post! LOL! I figured out some of it after probing along!

  14. Thank you for this encouragement, sweet friend. Those pretzels look so yummy! And, your granddaughter's bread and daughter's dish look so delicious, too! I'm glad I just finished eating supper. Otherwise, I would be starving after reading your post! I haven't delved into the new blogger and truly haven't had time or energy to take it on yet. Many blessings to you!

  15. Beautiful post, Cindy. Change is hard, to be sure, and more so, it seem, as we age. I had to laugh at your comment you were digging into the bottom of the ice cream bucket in trying to cope with the changes to Blogger. You have such a way with words!!!!

    Melissa did a FAB job with her taco dish looking like a flag! My goodness, that's clever. I'm used to seeing patriotic desserts along that line, but a taco dish?! I am very impressed. What a great idea.

    And the little one daubing at her entire eye with the blusher brush... that is priceless. It is clear your grandchildren absolutely delight in getting to spend time with you!

Hiding the Ugly Hot Water Heater

 I shared that I wanted to hide my ugly hot water heater in my laundry room with you a few weeks ago.


It just stuck out like a sore thumb. But after all it is a hot water heater right?



So my man took a piece of wood (not real wood) but it worked and built a frame for me.

So now to see if it would fit and it did.



I painted it white and did not like the texture it had even after two coats of white. (rule of thumb...you get what you pay for and the wood was cheap) But I wasn't going to let it whip me!



 Found some contact paper at Walmart in the gray and white.



Covered the front with the contact paper and loved the look.



The top was covered with a piece of painted wood as well and worked perfect to place this on top...

And this....



Added a clothes basket in the corner and here was the top....




Yep, no longer an eye sore to me! Went perfect with my gray walls and gray and white floor.



Remember the wood tray I bought at a yard sale and showed you last week?


{SON-Flowers}

Don't you just love sunflowers? When I think about sunflowers I think of two things. My motherinlove who loved sunflowers and Fall.



I came across a devotional written by Julia Bettencourt on sunflowers and thought it so appropriate for today as I wanted to share my sunflowers with you.
Here's a few lessons we can learn from the sunflower. 
Sunflowers Track The Sun. Most plants are attracted to light but the flowering head of the sunflower actually tracks the sun following it's path and moving toward where it is in the sky all during the day. I read somewhere that sunflowers track the sun when they are in bud stage. Isn't that how it usually goes for us as Christians? When we first come to know the Lord, we get excited about knowing all about Him and living for Him, but after awhile we sometimes grow a little preoccupied with other things and get our eyes off of the Lord.
Wouldn't it be great if as a Christian we'd track the Son of God and follow Him all…

{Picture Overload} WARNING-GRANDS ON BOARD

Well Nana has been back at it again snapping pictures of two of grandgirls. These girls are sisters and they each have their own unique personality in which I wouldn't have it any other way. They each bring their own style and charisma to the table and it surely makes life more interesting and fun.


This girl loves her some ball playing. She plays travel ball and enjoys it so much. She is our "Sports" girl for sure.  She's little but oh is she fast!

Just give this cute girl a dance costume or for that matter, any kind of prissy clothes, makeup and jewelry and she is good to go. She loves to dance.




This girl right here loves her some Star Bucks and enjoys being with her friends and family.









This sweet thing here loves glitter, bling, dress up and dippin dots ice cream!  Most often the first place she explores is my latest jewelry buys! She is truly a girl after my own heart because she LOVES her some lipstick!
