{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!

{Happenings Around Conner's Pond}

 

Good afternoon everyone. I do hope that your Sunday has been wonderful to you. My family has left to go home after our weekly Sunday dinner together so I am relaxing a little. Wanted to share this picture with you. My oldest daughter Kristy and her husband Jered just celebrated their 24th wedding anniversary.  I just can't believe she has been married that long. They stayed at Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando Fla and had the best time. So much to do there and you never have to leave the resort. 

The Lord has surely blessed this sweet couple.
 
I forgot to take a picture of our "fun food" by the pond from Friday...YEP, I know, y'all are disappointed! LOL!!! But, I did snap a picture of my little "Surprise sandwich" I had for lunch yesterday. I called it a surprise because I just put on it whatever I had handy in the frig. It was yummy too.

Bow season begins in Georgia in September which our hunting spot is about a 3 hour drive from home so not too bad. I done a little target practicing. My old bow is still dead on. I keep saying I am going to buy me a smaller bow but haven't done so yet. 

Marty, his dad and one of our soninlove's made a trip to check our trail camera's. He sent me this picture and said, "look at what was at your feeder"! Oh did that ever get me pumped up a little! LOL! 


So, I found this cute little pantsuit with pockets. I love pockets. It almost looks like a dress but isn't. I fell in love with it once I tried it on. I found the pantsuit at Cato's in which I rarely find anything there dressy that I like. I find cute little tops sometimes and of course jewelry. It was on the clearance rack y'all for $14. I snatched it up so quick. I found the shawl at Bealls outlet for $7. I would say I got a deal on the whole outfit. What I like about the shawl covering is I can wear it with other things too. 


Yes, I do love me some pockets! I found myself though putting a Kleenex in my pocket. Then I got tickled at myself because my granny never went anywhere without a Kleenex in her pocket! 


My sister passes this church going to work daily and she often snaps a picture of their marquee signs for me. I loved the sayings and so very true are these words.

I hope that you all have a wonderful week. Mine is pretty busy so my calendar tells me. Praise the Lord for calendar's huh? But, I plan to take each day with extending a little grace to myself. We all need a little dose of grace in life don't we? In closing I would like to share this meme. So very true!

So, let's make another person feel good this week y'all. I pray to be an extension of kindness to another this week in some way or another. How about you? 

Hugs and blessings to you all. Cindy

  3. Grin...you are a girl after my heart (bow hunting and hunting), grin...we were just discussing things today; and I will leave you with this thought; There are no political solutions to spiritual war. Then the kid (whose not a kid anymore) piped up, "I wonder with all the folks in the WORLD and not in the WORD will hear the trumpets sound?" Sadly...I pretty much think those who are saved will and the others won't.

    P.S. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to your daughter and her husband. smiles.

  7. Love, love, love those dresses....not so much the hunting gear! lol...Although I have a niece, 34, married and two kids that hunts. No issues doing field dressing or anything. I think that rocks, I just don't wish to be one of those women. I cried like crazy the other day to find Maybelline, pig, at the barn dead.

    I love how pansuits look on other people, but I think I'm too short (5'3") to pull it off???

  12. Ooo, love your new outfit! I stop in Catos now and then and usually find some new trendy outfit and I love their jewelry, too. Maybe I’ll stop in this week!! Congratulations on your daughter and SIL’s anniversary! They sure are blessed! I enjoy reading clever church marquees, too, and these made me chuckle. Wishing you a wonderful week, dear lady! Zenda

  13. Wow! That buck sure is beauty! I am amazed that you are able to pull that bow and actually hit the target! You are an amazing woman! Love the outfit...what a great find! And the shawl is very pretty indeed. Happy Anniversary to your "kids". Those years just seem to fly by, don't they? Hard to believe we will be celebrating our 52nd anniversary later this month. I can't even believe I am older than 52! LOL. Love the church signs...those are great. Always love to see what's "cooking" over around "Conner's pond". Have a blessed 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
