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

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 and she done so good. She's little but she is fierce for sure.  


Nothing like watching the littles. Some children immediately said, "I am not playing today". Others cried. Some just simply sat down on the ground and said, "Think I will just watch today". We laughed, cheered and well, these babies make our world go round. 


Y'all know that I can't hardly do a blog post without sharing food pictures. LOL! Marty and I enjoyed brunch at "First Watch" and either I was mighty hungry or it was really good but either way we sure enjoyed our little outing. 


Kyleigh stayed with us for the weekend and we had some artist moments. Of course we baked cookies too because one doesn't come to Nana's house without baking being on the list. Y'all, I can't even "connect the dots" but I managed to watch a beginners painting tutorial on YouTube and well...it sorta turned out okay. I might be found a new hobby! LOL! 



Sweet girl all ready for church this morning.

This was sent to me by a friend and I found so much truth in this. How about you? Do you feel like this at times too?

 Fall is hopefully around the corner. The temps seemed actually nice yesterday and we had a nice breeze. I hope that with the official day of fall being this week that it brings some much needed cooler temps our way. I also hope that you all have a wonderful week and kick off to Fall. May the Lord bless you in every way. 

I am glad that I can't see y'all laughing over my little pumpkin painting! LOL!

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    1. I love First Watch. Several friends and I have been a few times. It was Marty's first time going. He enjoyed it. Girl, my little ole pumpkins didn't turn out half bad for someone that can't draw a straight line without a ruler and then somehow I still MESS up! LOL!

  5. I seriously am crying over that picture and message, Cindy. I do feel like both right about now.
    Your painting is absolutely beautiful ! You are talented in so many ways. I know Kyleigh had fun at your house. Our little Hayden is playing soccer, too, and she’s tiny but mighty! I’ll share next week about her. Aren’t we thankful to see these grands of ours?? Have a great week, my friend. Blessings to you.

  6. I've also had some issues commenting on posts starting in late July. At first, I hought it was because I was using a new laptop, but I later realized it was a platform issue. Sometimes, I have to try 2-3 times before I can finally leave a comment!

    I can totally relate to the sign about being a warrior, mess, etc. LOL.

    Well done on the pumpkin painting. Gotta love those Youtube tutorials!

    1. Warrior, mess is right Margie. Praise the Lord that He helps us daily. Thanks for the comment on my little pumpkins.

  7. I really like your pumpkin painting. Tom used to reel me into watching those You Tubes, too. Once, he got the whole family doing it with us! First Watch is a family favorite. We've never had a bad meal there in the years we've eaten there. I love fall and can't wait to get out my wreaths! You're looking great, Cindy, and your family stories are a joy.

    1. Those dang YouTube videos make me want to do all sorts of projects! LOL! I love First Watch. Happy Fall!

  8. Yesterday, blogger was so messed up that I could not visit here (and many other places, including my own blog). I was thrilled to have it miraculously fixed today. I tried not to panic, but I did fire off a question to our host. I remember in the "old days" having more problems than we do now so that's a good thing.

    I think the poses your grandgirlies strike are so cute. The artsy things are terrific and look like "something." That's the expression parents used to say when kids' projects were worthy of display. 😁

    Have a good week.

  9. Blogger is still causing problems for many of us ...

    I do like your fall painting.
    I love the Autumn/Fall a fantastic season.

    Loved seeing your photographs too.

    Enjoy your days.

    All the best Jan

  11. Aw! Your painting is just beautiful! This is Cheryl, by the way. I am not sure if it will show anonymous or not. The blogger issues are so frustrating and discouraging. Sending hugs your way tonight, 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
