{Happy Resurrection Day}

I hope that you all have enjoyed this beautiful Easter Sunday. He is risen! I wanted to end the month of March in sharing a few of my favorite photos from the month.  Celebrated my favorite grandsons birthday. Conner is 18 now!  Our beautiful Mallory Grace all decked out for the prom. The youngest grands (sisters) were flower girls in their uncle's wedding. The oldest one was in her element of dress up. The younger one, not so much. THAT HAIR BAND ITCHED HER HEAD she said!  I purchased a new pair of wedges that I love. I am always skeptical about ordering shoes or clothing but read the reviews on Amazon and went for it. Love the color and the style.  The youngest grand loves to take selfies and play with the filters.  Marty colored Easter eggs. He always colors at least a dozen every year. He always says he's doing it for the grands but I know he does it because of the inner child in him! LOL! I went with the little ones to Disney on Ice and we had the best time. I think I enjo

{It's almost February}

We are about to in February y'all and do you know what that means? Well, for starters February will kick off my birthday month but it's our annual Mountain getaway for two! YEP, my three daughters pout every year because they can't go but we didn't make it to 46 years without truly guarding some of our precious time. I wish these younger couples would learn to GUARD some of their precious time. 

 For today, I will share a few flashbacks from my week. 

 One of my elementary long time friends gave me some of her beautiful Meyer lemons. This is the 2nd batch that she has shared with me. I have juiced so many and frozen for treats and recipes. I just love all things lemon.

I had a batch of apples that needed to be used so made a fresh apple and walnut pound cake. Saved half of it and froze it for our upcoming mountain trip. The other half didn't last long round here with my tribe.

Made a big pot of  sausage and potato soup in which my oldest granddaughter loves. So, decided to do a little gift-care package for her lunch while she was working. She was one happy young woman. 

My youngest daughter and her husband made a short trip to Athens, Ga, home of our beloved Georgia Bulldogs and yes indeed she brought back her mama a prize! I also love all things GA DAWGS!

Decided to set my table since Christmas was over. Went simple and clean as the EXPERTS call it. I call it "Just making my table cute as a button". 

I had a corner space that needed something so extras for desserts always come in handy at my house.

Yes, my gathering spot is surely in my kitchen and dining room. 

Just have to brag on my granddaughter Mallory.  She is a sophomore this year. She loves ALL things athletic. Not only does she play softball for High School and travel team but she weight lifts too. MERCY, just hurts me all over to watch her. But, she really is amazing with her strength. I wish I could take credit for that but I am afraid her Nana is as weak as  a cooked noodle! LOL! 

When all the scores came in our girl was the newest record holder at the high school. She also scored 2nd place in her weight division at her latest meet. We are so very proud of her. 

I hope that you all have a wonderful week and get ready to kick off February with lots of love for others. 

Hugs and blessings, 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 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

{Happy 46th Wedding Anniversary To Us}

  Happy October everyone! I wanted to pop in today and share a few pictures. Marty and I celebrated our 46th wedding anniversary on September 23.  Oh it seems so long ago that we said "I Do". We started dating when I was 16. Married at 18 and began a family at 20. Needless to say we have surely grown up together. Praise the Lord that we are growing "Older" together.  We decided since it had been about 8-9 years since we had been to Savannah, Ga. that we would take a weekend there and just enjoy a scenic luncheon cruise.  We enjoyed walking River street and sightseeing, shopping and eating of course! It was a nice get away and perfect for us as we are simply two imperfect people that fit perfectly together.  I did spot Santa while in Savannah though! YES, I love Christmas so I had to stop at several Christmas shops! We've had outings that have kept us quite busy and we have surely been blessed to be able to attend our grands functions and our little outings toget

{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
