{Fun with the littles}

  Good Sunday afternoon y'all. I hope that you all have had a great week. We actually got about 2 inches of rain yesterday and it was so nice. It did cool off a bit and this morning we had a nice breeze as we enjoyed coffee on the front porch. But...no breeze or rain today. HOT!  The youngest two grands stared their new school year in which my daughter who taught school in the public school system for 11 years teaches them at home. Adalynn and Annaleigh are very blessed to have their mom teach them. They love it and of course they had to get all gussied up for their first day of school pictures you know?  The youngest three grands stayed with Papa and Nana Friday and Saturday as for an early birthday outing my daughter had the chance to go see Alan Jackson in Savannah, Ga. They couldn't wait for Papa to get home so he could ride them around on the 4-wheeler. Never mind that he had been up since 4 am and returned home about 6 pm. from work. What we do for the grands, right? Of c

{Beaching with the Girls}





Good Sunday afternoon everyone. I hope that you all are having a wonderful Sunday and that tomorrow, July 4th, that you enjoy your red, white and blues. I just returned from from a short getaway to Fernandina Beach with my three daughters and we had such a wonderful time. We had one shower of rain but needless to say, I was a drowned rat! But oh did it ever feel so good and I simply just give praise for the much needed rain and time away with the girls.


I for sure got the biggest soaking but then I can't move as fast as my girls! LOL!

We had a lovely meal at the Boathouse one evening. We had about an hour wait so we walked around the historic district for a bit and oh my! I found the cutest little Christmas ornament shop. I can't believe I did not take any pictures. Especially when I LOVE ALL THINGS CHRISTMAS. 

There is nothing like the sound of the ocean and the clean salt air to me. 




We had brunch one morning at Sliders and one can never go wrong with Grits and Shrimp. 



Everything we all ordered was delicious. Marty and I have eaten there before but this was the girls first time of trying Sliders. I am pretty sure they will go back. 


I guess it would be safe to say we love seafood. Marty and I enjoyed a nice little seafood ourselves out by the pond.


The three youngest grands had a sleepover with me one day last week and of course we must have sprinkles with our pancakes! 


We baked cookies and ate lots of them!


I have some costume jewelry that belonged to my late MIL so the girls had to play with a few pieces.


This little one wanted to help me sweep the kitchen floor so the next thing I knew she was sweeping away with the fire place sweeper. LOL! 


We done a few yoga poses but they enjoyed stretching their legs I think the best. Though I must say that from them being in dance they sure had some of those poses down to a tee!

I hope that you all have a wonderful and safe 4th of July holiday with your family and friends. I was reminded of where my true freedom comes from when I was working on my Focus for July. May we never take for the granite the freedoms that we do have. Happy 4th to you all.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  1. That picture of you is fabulous! Joy written all over it. How delightful that you got away with your daughters. And I love the grandgirlies spending time at your house. I think your little grand is ingenious using a broom just her size. Have a blessed Independence Day.

  14. What a fun time. I wish our daughter and I could get away together, but between her schooling and 3 little boys, it just isn't happening anytime soon. Always fun to stop by and see what you've been up to.

  15. Beautiful beach, beautiful restaurant, and beautiful people. The ONLY reason your foodie pictures did not make me hungry was because I had a root beer float just before sitting down to ready your blog post. If my tummy had been empty, it would have been growling, for sure!

    Yes, indeed, our freedom is because of our redemption through Jesus Christ. Such a good reminder!!

  16. A girls' time away at the beach with your daughters looks so refreshing and fun. And those little ones..how cute are they. Yes, we embrace freedom in this country; a mighty high price was paid for it! Love you, Cindy.

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

{Pinterest Favs and My Simple Life}

  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

{Another Fun Filled Weekend}

I hope you all are doing well. I am trying to wind down for the night and thought I would try and get a post out. Girls, by this time I am in my fat clothes and recliner smashing that remote control!   Marty and I kicked off our weekend by having a little fun food as I call it,  "charcuterie" style out by the pond. Of course I always fix more than we need or eat but it sure was good.  Two of our granddaughters had dance recitals over the weekend so we got to watch them perform and oh my! They were just the cutest things ever.  We were blessed to be able to see them perform. Then we celebrated a birthday for this sweet grandgirl! She was excited about being double digits . And besides all the fun from the weekend I was able to see some of my pretties in bloom.  Now to enjoy a cup of coffee.... I hope that you all have a wonderful, blessed week.  Hugs and blessings, Cindy
