It's almost Fall Y'all!

Hello everyone on this late Sunday afternoon. I hope that you all have had a great week. I wanted to share just a few fun pictures from my week and to also tell those of you that have said something about the blogger issues that I totally understand. I have had quite a few replies to my blog come in as anonymous. I can pretty much tell by the reply if it's indeed a blogger friend. Other issues are that our feeds are no longer showing up in our emails but this has been going on for some time. For those of us that use the free blogging platform then we have to take the good with the bad. For now, I am just enjoying doing a blog post when I can and purposely checking my reading list on blogger to try and keep up with my blogging friends. Technology is good but boy can it be a pain at times. Anyway, on to a few fun pictures.  We have a little soccer player in the family now. Our youngest grand that is 4 played her first game on Saturday. Oh my! This tiny little thing sure held her on a

{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 course we done a little yoga, nails, and played around with makeup. They love doing yoga to the Christian song called Oceans by Hillsong. And, like their Nana, their favorite part is being rewarded with a cool wash cloth and rest. LOL! Mine have essential oils on them so I put a tad of orange (Kid safe) on their wash clothes. Just enough they felt so special. We made them ahead of time and put them in the freezer for just a bit so they would be nice and cool.

We had baked some cookies but I cheated this time and used packaged chocolate chip cookie mix.  It sure didn't matter to them as they gobbled them up! They did save Papa a few though. 


Then we baked a cake for Sunday dinner. The best part is licking the beater or spoon you know!


Our granddaugher Kyleigh started snapping pictures using filters. So glad they know how to do this! LOL! Grands are surely so much fun but I will tell you, this Nana was tired. I only wish that I had just a tad of their energy. They say, "grandchildren will keep you young". Well, I am not so sure that meant body wise but they sure keep me younger mind wise as I try so hard to look through their eyes, listen to their words and hear what they hear. Oh the joys of children....

A friend of mine will occasionally "dump" all of her saves that she keeps on her phone and I  always love to read them. I hope that these speak to your heart as they did mine. Many times her little "saves to her phone dump" come at just the right time. I hope that you all have a wonderfully blessed week. 
Hugs and blessings, Cindy

I sure wish I could be one of your granddaughters! LOL. I think I've said that before. Maybe I could bring Lily Grace up and let you pretend she's one of your littles? LOL. Thank you for sharing your family with us. What a blessing!!!

    1. Yes they came through twice and I know what you mean about blogger still messing up. It has been a little crazy on my end.

  7. Your husband's expression as he listens cracked me up. Having the explanation that it had been a long day made perfect sense. It is obviously great fun for the girls to spend time with you. You make life fun!

  9. Always fun to see your delightful granddaughters. I don't know how to do the photo filters either, so I stick with the normal photos. LOL.

  10. You continue to make the most wonderful memories with your grandchildren, and especially when you have them all to yourself for those overnight visits.

    The special graphics from your friend are so encouraging!

  11. Hi Cindy, I enjoyed all the pictures. That is nice that your daughter can homeschool. The tractor picture reminded me of my grandfather. He hitched a wagon to the back of his lawnmower and pulled us around. Yoga to Oceans is great. I love that song! I love the matching headbands. Enjoy your week!

  14. I've had our girls the past two weeks during the day because their Mom went back to work two weeks before their school starts. We had all kinds of fun, pedicures, crafts, cookie baking and more. Have a great weekend!

  15. Hi, Cindy - I think I'm like a voice from the past. We've had so much going on and have done a lot of traveling over the past few months. I love the pictures of your grandkids. They are growing up so fast, as are mine. I'd love to know more about your essential oils on your washcloth. I recently started with essential oils. I'll be back again to see what you have to share.

  16. Oh, wow! Our friends went to see Alan Jackson, too! I am pretty sure it was that same exact concert. He is so wonderful. One of the true-blue country classic musicians. I will be sad when he retires! Your little grands are just so precious!

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
