Living room etagere' decor - Part 9

Morning Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you doing well, 
and that nothing crazy or life altering
 is going on in your world.

Ever heard the saying "life is what happens when you
are making your plans?" Also, I think about a commercial
we see on TV for a local church, where the Pastor is
 talking about how one phone call can change everything
 or turn your world upside down. 

Well, that is sort of describes our last past 9 days.
Told you hubby was going to be on vacation last week, 
so our plan was to go to Asheville to vacation and
watch our Grandaughter DOG
while my daughter and hubby went away for their 3rd
Anniversary, we were to watch Rosie the first week,
then they would return the following Sat. night and
then we would spend a week with them.

Well,  we did make it to Asheville about 2a.m. slept
from 2::30-4:30a.m, got up took them to the airport at
5:00,  came back went back to bed at 5:30 and slept
till about 10:00, got up made some coffee and sat
around trying to wake up and finally ate a simple
breakfast..  Since it was suppose to rain ( but
 thankfully it never did till the middle of the night), 
 around 2 p.m. we decided to venture  out a church
 we wanted to attend on Sunday that was only 4
 mins.from where the kids live,  so we did that and
 also got to see beautiful scenery, all the trees are
so gorgeous,  and this was all right there in the
church parking lot, believe it or not!!  Amazing
church facility I have to say.  Anyway,  we also
drove on down the road the church was on and
 did some exploring and pic taking.....found some
beautiful yellow and orange berries and a bed
and breakfast way up on a mountain.  I just love
exploring like just never know
what you will find..............

Anyway, It was good we did that cause, as
 we were returning from our short exploration
 headed back to the townhouse, we got a call
 from my son, which since it had only been hours
that I had talked to him.... flagged me to already
 know, uh oh, something is wrong.
My first thought of course, was the baby, then
he proceeded to tell me that my SIL,Susan, 
had fallen and said she had broken her hip,
and that she was in the hospital and resting
comfortably. Later her neighbor/ friend said it
could be her leg they didn't know for sure yet,
 and since it was Sat. she had not seen the Dr./
surgeon yet, so they really didn't know the extent
 of the damage or what they were gonna do yet,  
and that she was resting comfortably and not in
 pain for now, and not to do anything until we
 knew more information.  Scott and Megan were
 at an air show and Susan's neighbor/friend
 who is also nurse, thank the Lord, was with
 her at the hospital, and Scott said they would go
 up to the hospital and find out what was going
 on,  and call us later that evening.

 She did not get to see the surgeon until late 
Sunday evening, and it was her hip and she 
needed to have surgery,  which was scheduled
 for 11:30 a.m. on Monday Oct. 13th.  So we
 headed home to Florida on Monday after some
 crazy delays,  that turned out to be because my
 daughter did not have their keys with them to 
their town house since we were supposed
 to be there when they got back. We decided
 not tell DeeAnna about her aunt since
 it was not life threatening and since there was 
nothing she could do from Puerto Rico anyway,
so figured why ruin their trip.  Thankfully, By
 accident, Dee found out from Megan (our DIL) 
we were on our way back to Florida, just
 as we were 30 mins.into our trip home, she
called me and said what is going on?? and that 
they didn't have a key to get in............  
Thank the Lord for all those delays or we would
 have been hours down the road, cause we had
 to turn around and go back and leave the key
 under their doormat.
Thankfully that all turned out well.

Susan had the surgery and has done very
well as far as healing from the surgery, has
not had a lot of pain unless they move her,
and has been in good spirits.  We had her
 moved to a rehab facility on Thursday, and 
she is slowly (which is very typical) making
 progress.  Our biggest concern is that she
has a bad knee that really needs knee re-
placement surgery on the same leg that
 she broke her hip, and it was actually what
caused her fall in the first place.   So if you
 feel so led,  please pray for healing of that
 knee, and that it will not impede her

Fortunately,  I already had these pics to this
and Thursday post already prepared since I
 knew we would be on vacation still.  We have 
quite a full plate so don't know what will happen
 after this week, cause we are not only visiting her,
 we are feeding her menagerie of 9 pets twice a
 day, along with any thing else that needs to be
 taken care of, as well, as running our own
household, and hubby is working again too.
So.........will just take it as it comes.

So that has pretty much been our week. We did
 manage to get some pics of the pretty trees and 
scenery up there, so maybe I can post  some
next week,  Lord

So on with the Fall decorating...............

Thankful Thursday - October 9, 2014, Fall decorating Part 8 Livingroom

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom
 that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, 
and so worship God acceptably
 with reverence and awe,
Hebrews 12: 28 NIV

Greetings Sweet Friends,

How are things in your world??

Good I hope.

Things are good here, just been doing some 
ironing, which I don't do often, but some things
 just need to be ironed and that is all there is 
to it!  So got her done, this has been my get
 her done week it seems..........

Love that feeling of freedom that brings!

I know, I know some people really hate
ironing, and some days I am not in the
mood but sometimes I actually like it...
 if..... I can watch something good on 
TV at the same was able
to catch a few good Christian TV
programs,  so that was nice.....
Sorta killing 2 birds with one stone, getting
my work done and enjoying and  feeding
 myself spiritually all at the same time,
good multitasking I would say!!  lol

Well, on with my Thankful List,

All these pics are from my living room etagere
(This one has a paint daubs affect)

I am thankful

for playing tea party with my lil 19 mo.
old grandaughter at 1 a.m. in the morning
cause she was wide awake, she was also
sneezing a lot and coughing some, and it
turned out she was catching a cold, but
a busy beaver at playing.
Know I have said it before........ but she
 really cracks me up!!

for the beautiful Fall weather we are 
beginning to have.  Mowed the yard and
it was so cool, breezy and lovely we didn't 
want to come inside, but did cause the
 mo skeets were after us!!  lol
Perfect weather for working in the yard!

that one of our young married couples from our class,
 that had an offer for a promotion, that would also mean
 a move to south Florida from Central Florida heard
 clearly from the Lord not to go. Awesome that they
 heard and obeyed. They are a great couple and we
 are so happy we want be losing them.

that I discovered that Tart Cherry Juice has loads
of melatonin, which is a good sleep aid,  and since
I have these cyclical hormones sleepless nites
every month for about a week,  I decided to try
it and I have slept like a rock the last few nights.
It is a lil more expensive than most juices but
it is worth every penny..........It is also delicious.

that our kitty Molly got a good report from the Vet
 and all her shots are up to date.  Another thing
off my plate and my

that I found some nice blouses and some
jeggings at Penneys last Friday.....and I 
am thrilled the blouses are cotton........and
I am hoping this means that the clothing
 industries love of polyester is hopefully
 on it's way outl
If so,  Whoo Hoo!!

for Twinings Red Rooibus Tea,it is delish,
and have been enjoying it since we are
having some cool weather these last evenings.

that hubby is taking a week of vacation
next week,  so we are just planning to have
fun,  so will probably be taking a blogging
break next week.

for pistachio nuts, they have really become
a favorite, probably cause I don't buy them
often, but I recently discovered that our Publix
 grocery store has them in small bags for $1.00, 
with just enough to satisfy one person. Which
would be me!!  lol 

for a devotional from the "Jesus Calling"
book that really spoke to me today (Tues.)
about accepting each day as it comes and
trusting  and thanking God in it, whatever the 
situation is. Needed to hear that today!!  lol

for people that I can call to pray for me whe
 it is needed, and for some of you blog friends
 that pray for me too. Such a blessings!

that my back is so much better, not quite perfect,
but great compared to Monday. So thankful
for answered prayer as well............

Fall Decor Part 7 - Living room coffee table 2014

with posterized affect

Happy Monday sweet Friends,

So how are you this fine day??

Doing well, I hope!

I hadn't planned on posting today, but
since the pictures were already down-
loaded and my day is pretty much shot
anyway, figured today would be a good
day to do it.  

Started off the day with an emergency
trip to the chiropractor cause I had
thrown my sacariliac out,  so went
there, and am feeling some better,
but he says the pain is mostly from
the tendons, and hopefully I will be
much better by tomorrow.  Can tell
some improvement already.  So since
I was out decided to go have my van
washed, and then run to the grocery
store, so by the time I did all that and
talked to hubby and Dee on the phone
for a few mins. and ate lunch it is now
3 p.m,  and I am also bushed.....
So once I finish this..... I will be on
 my way to kick back and rest for a
 little bit till time to make din din.

These are all pictures of our mostly white living room
dressed up for Fall.  The blue chair with the white
pillows is from the family room.

All the rest of the pictures are of the coffee
 table (my graduation gift - the hope chest)
  It is all cedar just had it painted some years
back and love it like this.....................
