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

 Happy Sunday everyone. I am about to cut up a fresh pineapple and enjoy it late this afternoon with a glass of ice tea. Nothing like  fresh fruit is there? I hope that you've all had a great week. 


My youngest daughter and her girls invited me to lunch and a little shopping one day so off we went. Of course one can't go shopping without stopping at Hobby Lobby you know?



We spotted a Five and Below store and the girls were thrilled when I suggested we browse a bit in there!

Five and Below was already putting out some Christmas decor. 


My FIL got a new toy this week and he's been riding away! He's 87 and in such good shape and health. We are so thankful for him. He was so excited though about his stationary bike. He said that he'd been peddling so fast before long that we might just see him riding by our house. LOL! 


My Yoga instructor wanted to do something special for our teachers, bus drivers, or anyone associated with our school district as they are preparing to begin school here next week. After a nice chicken salad lunch we began prepping fresh fruit for fruit cups and fruit parfaits, goodies bags and a basket to be used in a drawing for a door prize which was valued at $100. All anyone had to do was drive through by the Yoga studio and we had everything ready for them including Dunkin' Coffee. We had such a good turn out from our school employees and everyone seemed to be so appreciative of her kindness. We are praying for the new school year for all of our school emplyoyees and children.


And...I did enjoy a cup of Dunkin' Coffee!


Marty and I enjoyed a DAY DATE! Oh those day dates are the best aren't they? We done a little shopping and of course we made a run to Home Depot. I mean...who doesn't love Home Depot? 



We had several people tell us about this place that most would call "A little hole in the wall" place to eat good seafood in a nearby city. So, we decided to try it out. Well, I must say that we did not leave disappointed. The service was great and the food was plentiful and good. 




We had so much food leftover but it was sure tasty.


Well, a new month is upon us and it was time to do my monthly focus board. Oh am I learning all the more about the power that is in the Name of the Jesus. Some days it seems like my prayers and talking to Him are long and I think later...BOY, you sure have called on the name of Jesus a lot today. Other days it seems that all I can do is a breath prayer and simply say...JESUS! But regardless....there is POWER in the Name of Jesus. 

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus; there's just something about that name.
Master, Savior, Jesus, like the fragrance after the rain;
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, let all Heaven and earth proclaim
Kings and kingdoms will all pass away,
But there's something about that name.
Kings and kingdoms will all pass away,

But there's something about that name.

I hope that you all have a most wonderful week. 

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  1. It's fun to get out together no matter where you go and I love your shopping with your family. We get out in nature and got out of the shopping habit with the pandemic. I don't really miss it though and shop online! lol Lots of temptations at Hobby lobby though. Enjoy your Sunday afternoon!

    1. Yes it is fun no matter what you do when you are with those you love. To be honest, I am not your typical shopper either! LOL! When I go for things I really need I go alone as I am on a mission! But, when I just want to hang out and enjoy the fellowship then I love going with others. Amazon Prime has made it easy to shop on line for me! LOL!

  3. I hope your pineapple was good. I no longer buy them like this, preferring for somebody else to do the carving for me. But fresh is, for sure, the best!!

    You have a big heart and so much compassion! The teachers and taff are blessed to have you and your joga instructor. So creative and thoughtful.

  6. What is this nasty rumor I'm hearing about school starting next week? It's so hot! This must mean your schools have AC. (Ours don't. )

    What a nice shopping trip with your daughter and grands. The grandgirlies look perfectly happy to be shopping. Someone has them well trained.

    Hope you were able to take home the leftovers of your wonderful seafood dinner. Hmmm...sure looked good.

  7. You all seem to have a great time all the time. We have a seafood place like that here in our area but I have not been, not the biggest fan of seafood, unless its fried. haha...Don't you just love a great trip to the Hobby? Most times I don't even buy anything but I like to walk and look to see what all they have. Fun.....Have a great week

  9. Christmas decor out already? Wow, that's early. I haven't even seen any pumpkins yet....but soon I'm sure.
    Shopping with those grand girls must be so much fun. They're always full of smiles.
    You're all ready to cut into that pineapple. I've got a big old watermelon in the fridge and on this hot day it's going to be SO good.
    Have a great week.

  10. Pineapple is one of my favourite tropical fruits. I also love seafood so I'm salivating over your meal.

    I think your Five and Below is the equivalent of our Dollarama Store which sells items for $5 or less.

  11. How wonderful of your yoga instructor to do such kindness for others within the school system. The priest at my Mass yesterday blessed all the kids and their backpacks yesterday. It was so sweet.
    Your day date and meal sure looked good. Having fun with your girls is always fun!
    I agree with you in the power of Jesus’ name. 🙏🏻

  14. Hi, Cindy - I've gotten so far behind on reading posts. We've been gone a lot through the Spring and Summer. Part of the time we've not had cell service or internet when I can stop and stay in touch so it's good to start catching up again. I really need to blog about our trips and other things in our part of the world. I love seeing what you've been doing.

  15. I love your focus board Scripture! That is such a great idea to do that. And you look so beautiful in the photos! I love the one where you were so surprised when you saw what was on your plate! Day dates surely are the very best. Sending love and hugs your way today, sweet friend.

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
