Have a Trusting Sunday

Happy Sunday Morning,

Hope your weekend is going well.

I used to do a simple Sunday post
with just a verse years back and
decided I wanted to start doing
that again.  Here is a wonderful
verse so fitting anytime, but......
 especially fitting for the day and 
age we are living in..............

Trust in him at all times, O people; 

pour out your hearts to him,

 for God is our refuge.

Psalm 62:8

Have a Trusting Sunday,

Blessings, Nellie

Welcome to Thankful Thursday - September 11, 2014

Past pictures of Fall at Cozy Place

You are awesome, O God, in your sanctuary; 
the God of Israel gives power and strength
 to his people.  Praise be to God!
Psalm 68:35

Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope you have had a very good week.

Mine has been very busy yet very good!  Got a lot
done.........nothing like motivation of upcoming 
events to get you going!   lol

You will see what I mean as you read.  Gotta get
to the airport gonna just stop here
and get on with my Thankful list.

I am thankful

for a fun time with Scott, Megan, and the Baby.  
on Saturday afternoon and evening.

for a really great new to us, Italian restaurant
that is over near their house.  We got take out
from there, and it was really really good.  We
all got something different and we all loved it.

that I have all my spring/summer decorations
down and packed away, as of Monday.

that I have the family room and dining room
and outside almost finished with the new Fall look,
 just have some tweaking and the living room to go.

Note: Finished it all Tuesday and have everything
put away..............and now just enjoying it!

that Sunday school went quite well, considering
 that we sort of  had to wing it cause our other
 teacher was sick and couldn't come at the
 last minute.

for these new to us,  heath bar cookies that
Hubby found at Publix supermarket, 
 they are so yummy!  
They aren't gluten free and I probably 
shouldn't be eating them but they are just
 too good to pass up.

for the incredible smile those cookies put 
on Brooklyn's sweet lil face when she tried one.
It was just the cutest thing I have ever seen......
I typically don't give her sweet stuff,  and would
never give her a lot, but give her bites off my
cookie now, and she is loving it.
She just tickles me pink..........

that we got the rest of step #5 done on our mail
box project......( finished digging the bed out) 
and then step #6 (cutting the black garden fabric
 that goes under the mulch to keep the weeds out)
 and #7( planting the pittsoporumbush) and part
of #8, (putting the garden cloth down),  Got all
that done on Wed. evening and hoping that if
we have no rain tomorrow evening we will be
able to finish the rest.  

Update on Thursday: We finished........Yay!!
but we do need to put a lil more mulch,  but
it looks finished very happy
with the outcome.

that DeeAnna will arrive tonight (Thursday
evening at 10:30) Can't wait to see her.....
We haven't seen her since mid July, so we
are very excited...............

Note:  she  made it here safe and sound,
it is 2:30 and we are just going to bed.  lol
that my friend Becky over at TimeWashed
has had such a great pumpkin selling
season................altho I miss seeing her
as the is knee deep in pumpkin making!! lol

that I know and can depend on the Lord,
cause with all the craziness going on in our
world today, that is a great comfort!

for a lil treat the Lord gave me today.  I
happened to walk by my living room windows
and there are 3, and right in the middle one
I could see a huge white bird looking in.......
I ran to get my camera, and he must have
seen me cause he was still in the yard but
not as close to the window, so had to go
out and he was slowly on the move,  but
got a fairly good shot of him,  Looked up
the kind of bird he was cause have never
seen one in our neighborhood before,
It was a white Heron.  Very beautiful, but
very skinny compared to the pics I saw
of White Herons.  Hope he wasn't starving,
sorta wish I had fed him some bread now.

Also saw a big turtle this week in our yard.
It has been at least 4 yrs. or so since we
had one of those come by..........

 Hiding out!

The Lord knows how these critter sightings
delight me so............

Thanks for coming by.............

Bye now..........

Love, Hugs,  and
Sweet September Blessings,

First Fall Decorations for 2014

With Posterized affect

Howdy Sweet Friends,

How is your Tuesday going? 
 Well, I hope!

Mine has been busy....
 Since I was watching our lil darling this afternoon, 
 I was trying to finish up my Fall decorating and clean
 up all the stuff off my dining room table before she got
 here,  and mission accomplished........ very happy
with how everything turned out  too,  and we are 
already enjoying our new Fall look.............

Gave her lunch and she is napping now,  so am 
hoping I can get this post done before she
wakes up.

Our Sweet daughter is arriving late Thursday evening
and wanted to have the house all done for Fall when
she arrived.  Now I just need to put some things away
in the guest bedroom,( which was her old room) and
dust in there so it will be ready for her to stay in......
Also clean the guest bathroom.

Thought I would show you a few scenes of this years
Fallercizing of our house.

Took a picture of the sofa too, since I remembered I never
did show you my new throw pillows I got a few months
back.  I already had the green ones, so all that aren't green
are the news ones.

Here's a closeup of the pillow,  I liked it cause
it was a lil modern looking but really liked it
had all those colors.

  • Here's the coffee table.

I have 3 of these glass cylinders,  so filled them all,
one with nuts, one with leaves and one with faux apples,
Had them all on the coffee table with just one pumpkin
but decided to move 2 of them to the mantle instead.
Which I will probably show you next week.

With posterized affect

Remember this pic of our sofa table from my
 last post .  The summer look ........

Well, here is the Fall look, and I have to say
I was a tad worried about how all my Fall
decorations would look with the new curtains,
but to my thrill everything looks great!

 with colored pencil affect

posterized affect

Took this so you could see our Fall leaves from North
 Carolina. Dee and I preserved them while we were up
 there last November, and had such a fun time doing it.
Will probably share the tutorial and pics we took soon, 
cause I never got to post it last year cause it was too
late in the season,  so figured I would just say it till

I did it I finished before she woke up! 
It's like playing a game of beat the clock! lol

Well, there have it..........a lil preview..........
There will be more pics to come in the weeks ahead.

I am so enjoying seeing all the fun Fall decorations
out there in blogland,  so much talent and creativity
and it just gets my creativity flowing too!  lol
So thanks to all of you who are sharing!
