{Enjoying Life} And a short getaway with Family

 


I hope that you all have had a great weekend. I sure have. Spent some time with family for the weekend and well, it just don't get much better than family time


Done a little hunting, shopping, eating and a whole lot of playing with the littles. 


YEP, we had chocolate milk  ...in the bed! They loved every minute staying with Nana and of course getting by with lots of extra things....LOL! 


My soninlove downed two nice bucks in two days! Guess what's for supper one night this week? 



Yes friends, I am still truly enjoying my sunflowers. 


I will miss them. I enjoy so much walking out to where they are each day and looking at them. They have kept me supplied in bouquets. 


A friend in my Bible Study gifted me this precious journal and the timing couldn't have been more perfect. Oh yes, these words are so very true. I hope that you all have a wonderful week and remember, 


We must keep our eyes on the SON.

  3. All your photos are fabulous. And I love your hair!!!! So glad you got to spend such quality time with your family. And yes...more than ever we have to keep our eyes on the SON. My heart is very distressed these days, but I am reading the book you sent and the chapters on anxiety and peace were something I needed to hear!!! Seems like God really did have a hand in me winning because I think He knew I was going to need those chapters this week:)

    Unfortunately here in England, UK we are in lockdown, so any family get-togethers are via the internet.

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

{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 playin g. 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! Marty and I took a little time for "Just us" and

{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 th
