{Fall Please Come To Florida}

Well I am LATE in making a post this week!  Marty and I took three days off to do a little bow hunting in those old Georgia Pines. Camo, lipstick and earrings is a must for this huntress! LOL! A girl still gotta look like a girl...even when hunting right?  We had a good time. I actually had a nice breeze in my tree stand. Though no harvest was bagged we just enjoyed being away. Some of the sweetest times for me with the Lord is while I am sitting in a tree stand.  Had the two youngest grandgirls for a couple of days and of course we had a tea party! And sprinkles...we have sprinkles on EVERYTHING !  I've really enjoyed making coffees, shakes and loaded teas. Dang, I am getting pretty good at this! LOL! Everything I have made has been healthy, low in calories. Well, maybe I did add a whip or two of whipped cream and chocolate syrup!  Y'all, I won all these books! I was so surprised to get an email from my friend Cheryl at  http://www.homespundevotions.com/ telling me I had won!

{Happy Mother's Day To All My Blogging Friends}

 

Happy Mother's Day to all my friends in blogland. Whether you are a mom, grandmother, aunt, sister, cousin or friend, you are special to some one and have touched the lives of many in some way or another I am sure. I do hope that you all have had a wonderful day. My heart is full as I think of so many of my friends that have lost their moms or those ladies that has played a huge roll in their lives. This morning I prayed for the sons of our late and beloved friend Debby, from My Favorite Things. I am sure this was a hard day for her sons. I also gave praise that I could share today with my daughter's. Counting my blessings today my friends as it is a blessing to share those special moments with the ones you love the most.


I am truly grateful that God chose me to be these girl's mom. God is good. 


After church today we celebrated my oldest daughter's birthday (Kristy) and also celebrated Mother's Day. Grilled hamburgers and hotdogs was on the menu. 






Kristy asked for brownies instead of a cake. So I made two different kinds of brownies and decided to pretty them up a bit. It's about presentation right? 

My sister and I were able to visit with our mom on Friday at her resident in the nursing home. She was in good spirits and our patio visit was nice. It was a beautiful day with a gust of breeze but she loved being outside. She was able to get a hair cut for the first time since March 2020. We teased her and told her that she was styling the new wind blown look. LOL! Her dementia is increasing and has surely taken a toll on her mind. The patio visit was perfect and the outside fresh air done her good. 

 

I would like to kindly ask you if you would say a little prayer for our oldest granddaughter, Raygen. She has felt led to go on her first mission trip in June with a group from church to Puerto Rico. We are excited for her as this a huge step for her that is out of her comfort zone.  But, God cares more about our obedience than He does our sacrifice and we are so very proud of her for heeding the call to serve God by serving others.


I will close today by sharing this recipe from a precious lady that has long been gone to her heavenly home. I had forgotten about this recipe until her daughter posted it recently and it brought back good memories of Miss Cecil. Miss Cecil used to bring this dish to all the pot lucks at church and everyone always raved about it. I plan to make it this week or the weekend. 

I hope that you all have a wonderful week and Happy Mother's Day to my blogging friends.

  5. So glad you and your sister were able to visit with your mother. We have been in your situation so I understand.
    Happy Birthday to Kristy. The tired tray with brownies was a great idea. It did make a lovely presentation. The scalloped chinz plates are so pretty and adding the flowers was nice.
    Have a great week.

  9. You are blessed with such beautiful daughters...of course they take after their beautiful mother! And how wonderful that you and your sister were able to visit with your mother. I know she enjoyed having you there with her. I will definitely pray for Raygen. I remember when our oldest son went on a mission trip to Alaska when he was 15. It was a life-changing experience for him for sure. I am sure Raygen will come back with a new perspective on life and God's purpose for her life. Oh, that pineapple casserole...my sister has made that a few times and brought it to our family pot lucks. It is good!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe! I hope you have a blessed and beautiful week.

  13. Hi Cindy, I always enjoy your blog post. I enjoyed your pictures and how exciting for your grand daughter! So nice that you got to see your mom. I lost my mom in 2010 due to Alzheimer's. I posted a picture of her and me at my blog. Your daughter's are lovely! That recipe sounds so good! Are you enjoying not having to wear glasses. My vision is worse, but not bad enough for surgery yet. I will be 66 and the eye doctor says the longer I go, the better. Enjoy your week! ♥

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

{A Few of my Favorite Things}

  I hope that you all have had a wonderful weekend.  The weekends just seem to go by too quickly don't they? I wanted to share a few of my favorite things today that sits on my corner hutch in my kitchen. Most of all my blue and white dishes belonged to my grandmother and motherinlove so they hold special memories for me to say the least. I have a few that I have picked up here or there or that was gifted to me. Since I enjoy displaying my favorite blue and white dishes, most often I add seasonal or holiday decor to them and I also enjoy the little pops of color added to the blue and white.  Since the bottom of my corner shelf has a cabinet I was able to store a few of my dishes there. But, I have more lovely blue and white dishes stored in my She-Shed. I guess I need to have a blue and white party one day.     Though I have lots of dishes I do have some favorite's, how about you? Do you have favorite dishes?   Recently it was "National Daughter's Day" . So I ju

  Isn't this Coleus just beautiful? I have about 4 of these pretties that I started out in just one pot and the next thing I knew I was replanting in different pots. We had a girls day out this past Friday and I enjoyed our outing so much. Cracker Barrel was first on the list and then shopping. Nothing like a girls day with your girls. Sure does refresh the soul doesn't it? I have had this little sign for a few years now and found it at Tractor Supply . I just love it but let me tell y'all something...you can find all kinds of goodies at Tractor Supply. I went in recently to look for some seeds and well, let's just say I came out with more than I went in for!  Now for Pinterest Favs and these Yummy Chewy Brown Sugar Cookies are first on the list!   This recipe is tried and true.  YOU CAN'T EAT JUST ONE ! These things will melt in your mouth. The recipe made a large batch so needless to say family and friends were gifted cookies! Next time I make these I think I wi
