HAPPY MONDAY SWEET FRIENDS

FLOWERS IN AN ALABASTER VASE
COMPLIMENTS OF MARY DOVER PUBLISING

*
EVENIN' SWEET FRIENDS,
*
HOPE YOU HAD THAT FUNTABULOUS 
WEEKEND WE TALKED ABOUT
 ON THURSDAY!!
*
WE ACTUALLY DID HAVE ONE!!
WE HAD FRIENDS OVER ON FRIDAY
NIGHT FOR DESSERT AND GAMES.
WE TALKED, ATE TURTLE CHEESECAKE, 
DRANK COFFEE (DECAF OF COURSE),
  PLAYED PHASE 10 AND LAUGHED LOTS,
 TILL MIDNIGHT.
THAT IS OUR KIND OF EVENING!
*
SATURDAY MORNING WE SLEPT IN, MADE
THESE DELECTABLE BLUEBERRY MULTIGRAIN
PANCAKES FOR BREAKFAST.  IT WAS A TARGET
 BRAND ARCHER FARMS MIX, AND THEY WERE
REALLY GOOD. 
WE HAD JOEY ALL WEEK SO SCOTT CAME 
OUT LATER ONCE HE GOT OFF WORK AND
 SO I MADE A NICE SALAD AND WE ORDERED
 A PIZZA AND HAD A NICE LONG VISIT.  IT WAS
THE FIRST TIME WE HAVE HAD HIM ALL TO
OURSELVES IN 4 MONTHS, SO IT WAS VERY NICE.
*
WE ARE VERY EXCITED BECAUSE HE HAS A JOB
INTERVIEW ON TUESDAY NIGHT.  WE ARE SO 
HOPING THIS WILL BE THE JOB WE HAVE BEEN 
PRAYING FOR HIM.
*
SUNDAY WE WENT TO SUNDAY SCHOOL AND
 CHURCH AND IT WAS A BLESSING AS ALWAYS.

WE GOT TO SEE SOME WONDERFUL FOLKS
THAT HAD MOVED AWAY, BUT WERE HERE 
VISITING THEIR FAMILY. WE KNEW HER FOR 
A LONG TIME AS A SINGLE PARENT AND SHE 
IS JUST A REAL SWEETHEART AND THEN HER
HUBBY TO BE STARTED COMING AND THEY
 GOT MARRIED (AND EVERYONE WAS SO
ECSTATIC FOR HER) BUT A YEAR OR SO AFER
THEY MARRIED THEY HAD TO MOVE AWAY
 BECAUSE OF HIS JOB. BUMMER!!  BUT IT
WAS JUST SO GREAT TO SEE THEM AGAIN,
EVEN IF FOR JUST A FEW MINUTES, AND 
THEY STILL LOOK VERY HAPPY.
*
THEN WE WERE SUPPOSED TO GO PICK
 SOMETHING UP OVER AT SOMEONE'S
HOUSE, SO THEY INVITED US TO LUNCH,
SO THAT WAS A NICE SPONTANEOUS
 SURPRISE.  WE HAD A LOVELY LUNCH
 AND SWEET FELLOWSHIP.
*
AFTER WE CAME HOME, READ THE PAPER,
BUT NOT TOO LONG SINCE WE WERE 
FALLING ASLEEP..........TOOK A NICE LONG
NAP THEN WATCHED SOME PASTORS ON
TV WHILE WE DID THE EXERCISE BIKE.
WE DON'T USUALLY DO IT SUNDAYS,
 BUT WE WERE BEHIND SO NEEDED TO
GET A GOOD START INTO THE NEW WEEK.
*
WELL, HOPE YOU HAD
 A NICE MONDAY!!
*
BLESSING'S, HUGS 
AND SUMMER FUN TO YOU,
NELLIE

WELCOME TO THANKFUL THURSDAY - JUNE 24, 2010




*
EVENING.............. 
SWEET ENCOURAGERS
AND
WELCOME TO THANKFUL
THURSDAY.............
*
I TRUST YOU HAVE HAD A GOOD WEEK
 IN SPITE OF ALL THOSE LIL ANNOYING OR
 AGGRAVATING DETAILS THAT TRY THEIR
BEST TO RUN OFF WITH OUR JOY!!
*
I REALLY BELIEVE WE HAVE TO BE
DETERMINED NOT TO LET THAT HAPPEN,
CAUSE THE ENEMY HAS AN ARSENAL 
OF JOY STEALERS TO THROW OUR WAY!! 
 DO I HEAR AN AMEN TO THAT!! 
*
*
THERE USED TO BE A BOOK CALLED
"IF LIFE IS A BOWL OF CHERRIES,
THEN WHY AM I ALWAYS IN THE PITS!
*
I BOUGHT SOME CHERRIES LAST
 WEEK AND WHILE I WAS MUNCHING
ON THEM I WAS THINKING ABOUT
THE BOOK TITLE I JUST MENTIONED
AND THE THOUGHT CAME TO ME,
"LIFE MAY NOT ALWAYS BE A BOWL
OF CHERRIES, BUT WE SHOULD DO
ALL WE CAN TO STAY OUT
 OF THE PITS!!"
*
( DISCLAIMER:  BEFORE YOU WANT TO TAR 
AND FEATHER ME, LET ME SAY I AM NOT
 TALKING ABOUT A PERSON WHO IS TRULY
 GRIEVING OVER A DIVORCE, OR THE LOSS
 OF A LOVED ONE OR PET, OR NEWS ABOUT A
SOME PERMANENT PHYSICAL PROBLEM OR
 SOME TRAGIC CIRCUMSTANCE.)
*
SO THAT IS WHY MY 
#1 
THANKFUL IS
*
I AM THANKFUL
 FOR THESE THANKFUL THURSDAY
POSTS.   SINCE I HAVE LEARNED THAT
 BEING THANKFUL IS TRULY A PATHWAY
TO MORE JOY, THEY ARE MY WEEKLY
 DISCIPLINE TO STAY OUT OF THE PITS.
THEY MAKE ME THINK AND DIG DEEP
AT TIMES, AND THE LORD IS ALWAYS
FAITHFUL TO HELP ME FIND THINGS
TO PRAISE HIM FOR.
*
#2
I AM THANKFUL
FOR WHAT A SOLACE OF PEACE, QUIET,
BEAUTY AND BLESSING OUR BACKYARD
 IS TO ME AND HUBBY.  I JUST CAME IN FROM
SITTING OUT THERE BY MYSELF, AND THINKING
A BIT (HUBBY HAD AN ELDERS MEETING 
TONIGHT).  ANYWAY  I ALSO WANT TO TELL
YOU WHY, IT IS ESPECIALLY A BLESSING!! 
BECAUSE IT WAS COMPLETELY DEMOLISHED
AFTER HURRICANE CHARLIE WENT THRU
 HERE 6 YRS. AGO.......CHARLIE SPAWNED A
 TORNADO THAT TOUCHED DOWN ON THE
LOT RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO US, IT TWISTED
 OFF THE TOPS OF ALL THE TALL PINE TREES
AND THREW THEM ALL IN OUR BACKYARD.
IT LOOKED LIKE A WAR ZONE, I HAD NEVER
 SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT THIS UP CLOSE AND
PERSONAL.  ALONG WITH THAT, CAME THE 
REALIZATION THAT IF THAT TORNADO HAD
 TOUCHED OVER JUST  A WEE BIT MORE,
 WE MIGHT NOT BE HERE.
#3
I AM THANKFUL
 FOR THE SIGHTS I GET TO VIEW IN MY
BACKYARD; DRAGON FLYS DARTING 
BACK AND FORTH, BIRDS FLYING
 OVERHEAD AND CARDINALS INTO 
TREES NEARBY , THE LUSH GREEN
 BEAUTIFUL WOODS THAT SURROUND ME,
  BOUGANVILLA BLOOMING IN 2 SHADES
 OF PINK, HOT PINK AND PALE PINK AND 
YELLOW, ALONG WITH GOLDEN YELLOW 
LANTANA, AND HOT PINK ROSES,
AND OF COURSE, A BEAUTIFUL BLUE
CLOUDLESS SUNNY SKY.
*
*
#4
I AM THANKFUL
FOR THE SOUNDS I GET TO HEAR THAT
ARE SO RELAXING AND REFRESHING;
FROGS CROAKING, CRICKETS CRICKING
OR WHATEVER THAT NOISE IS THEY MAKE,
BIRDS SINGING, A PLANE FLYING OVER,
THE NEIGHBOR RUNNING HIS BOAT, WELL
TRUTHFULLY I COULD HAVE PASSED ON 
THAT ONE, BUT FORTUNATELY, IT DIDN'T
LAST TOO LONG.
*
#5
I AM THANKFUL
FOR THE COOL BREEZE  AND THE SUNSETS
THAT WE NOW HAVE OUT BACK BECAUSE OF
 HURRICANE CHARLIE , HE TOOK OUT ALL
 OUR TALL PINE TREES AND OUR SIDE
 WOODS, BUT THE LORD GAVE US SUNSETS
AND BREEZES THAT MAKE IT WONDERFUL
 TO SIT OUT THERE IN THE EVENING
 AFTER THESE SWELTERING
HOT FLORIDA DAY TEMPERATURES.
*
#6
I AM THANKFUL
WE NOW HAVE INSURANCE, IT FINALLY
KICKED IN THIS WEEK.  YEAH!!  LOL
*
#7
I AM THANKFUL
HUBBY HAD A PHONE INTERVIEW
AND IT WENT WELL,  BUT THEY EMAILED
HIM TODAY AND SAID HE HAD A VERY
GOOD RESUME AND GREAT SKILLS
BUT  DID NOT FIT THE POSITION
THEY WERE TRYING TO FILL..
IT IS ALWAYS NICE TO AT LEAST
HAVE SOMEONE BE INTERESTED.
THAT DID NOT HAPPEN AT ALL LAST
TIME UNTIL 9 MONTHS OUT OF WORK.
*
#8
I AM THANKFUL
HUBBY WAS NOT BUMMED BY THAT,
IN FACT, I THINK WE WERE BOTH
A LIL RELIEVED  THIS WAS NOT THE 
LORD'S CHOICE FOR HIM AS IT WAS 
A LONG COMMUTE,  AND WE ARE
 PRAYING FOR SOMETHING CLOSER 
TO HOME.
*
*
#9
I AM THANKFUL
THAT I HAVE GOTTEN RID OF A 
TON OF MAGAZINES,  AND TAKEN
A LOT OF NEAT PICTURES. CLEAN
UP IS GOING WELL.
*
#10
I AM THANKFUL
WE ALL HAD SUCH A NICE TIME
TOGETHER ON FATHER'S DAY,
AND I THINK JIMMY REALLY 
FELT LOVED ON.
*
#11
I AM THANKFUL
FOR ALL MY SWEET BLOGGY
FRIENDS THAT HAVE BEEN SO
CONCERNED AND HAVE PRAYED
 FOR US.  
THAT MEANS SO  VERY MUCH!!
*
#12
I AM THANKFUL
THAT THE LORD IS TEACHING ME
PATIENCE WITH THIS ARM SITUATION.
IT IS SOME BETTER, JUST TAKING IT'S
SWEET TIME, I MUST SAY!!
(THIS ONE IS A SACRIFICE OF PRAISE)
AFTER ALL, THE LORD SAYS TO GIVE
 THANKS IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES,
 THIS IS HIS WILL FOR US
(1 tHESSALONIANS 5:18)
*
*
(I CALL THIS MY TRAIL TO NO WHERE)
*
GUESS WHAT???  I AM FEELING
 MORE JOYFUL ALREADY!!
*
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A LOVELY
AND PEACE FILLED WEEKEND.
*
THANKS FOR JOINING ME TODAY
*
LOVE, BLESSINGS AND HUGS,
NELLIE

ARE YOU FEELING 
A BIT DOWN.......

THEN THINK OF
SOMETHING YOU CAN
THANK THE LORD FOR,
AND TELL US 
ABOUT IT!!

FUN FATHER'S DAY TABLESCAPE

*
GREETINGS SWEET FRIENDS,
*
HOPE TODAY FINDS YOU WELL AND HAPPY
AND
FULL OF ENERGY AND ENTHUSIASM!!
*
AM HAVING A FAIRLY PRODUCTIVE DAY:
GETTING SOME BUSINESS PHONE CALLS 
DONE , AND GOING THRU SOME OLD
MAGAZINES AND FILING ONES I WANT 
TO KEEP AND PITCHING EVERYTHING ELSE.
*
DON'T YOU JUST LOVE CLEANING STUFF
OUT???  I HAVE BEEN GOING TO DO IT FOR
 AWHILE BUT JUST NEVER GOT TO IT, SO 
SINCE I WAS BORED CAUSE OF MY ARM
LIMITATIONS YESTERDAY, I THOUGHT,
 LORD, THERE MUST BE SOMETHING 
PRODUCTIVE I CAN DO OR I MIGHT LOSE
MY MIND SOON, AND THE MAGAZINES 
CAME TO MIND.  I HAVE ALSO TAKEN SOME 
PICS OF PRETTY THINGS I FOUND........
MOSTLY FLOWERS, OF COURSE !!
*
I DECIDED TO DO A TABLESCAPE  
THURSDAY POST FOR TODAY.
*
AND NO, THIS ISN'T HUBBIES TIE,
IT IS HIS FATHER'S DAY TABLE
NAPKIN.
*
CUTE, HUH!!
HUBBY WAS IMPRESSED!!
*


*
HERE'S  THE SPECIAL GUYS PLACE!!

*



I DECIDED TO GO WITH A MOVIE  THEME



SINCE HUBBY LOVES WATCHING MOVIES 
AT HOME OR IN THE THEATRE.





*
I MADE THR LIL MARQUEE SIGN
AND THE TICKETS YOU'LL SEE
WITH PRINTMASTER.

*
*
HERE IS AN OVERVIEW OF THE MOVIE
VIGNETTE,  STACK OF DVD'S, POPCORN
(OF COURSE) WHAT IS A MOVIE WITHOUT
 POPCORN, IBC ROOTBEER, DARK CHOCOLATE
 (OF COURSE) HAVE TO BE HEART HEALTHY.
*
LATER I WAS THINKING I SHOULD HAVE
 USED COKE CAUSE IT WAS MORE
 COLORFUL, OH WELL!! LOL
*

*
FROM OPPOSITE END OF TABLE
*

*
THE STARS CAUSE HE IS THE STAR OF THIS SHOW!!
*
*
AND HE USUALLY  DOES KNOWS BEST!!
*
THIS PHOTO WAS ALTERED WITH
PHOTOSHOP CUT OUT AFFECT.
*

*
AND OF COURSE, ALL DINNERS NEED
A BIT OF AMBIANCE.
*
*
FILMGRAIN AFFECT, JUST FOR FUN
AND INTEREST!!
*
*
PICTURE WITH PALETTE KNIFE AFFECT.
TICKET SAID, "MY FATHER, MY BROTHER AND ME"

*
*
THIS TICKET WAS AT MY SON'S PLACE.
THESE WERE THE TICKETS I MADE ON
PRINTMASTER, THEN I LOOKED UP NAMES
 OF MOVIES THAT SEEMED TO BE POSITIVE
 ABOUT FATHER'S, AND TYPED THEM ON,
THEN CUT THEM OUT.
*
  I WANT TO TRY AND RENT THEM IN THE
 NEXT FEWS MONTHS
 AND SEE IF WE REALLY LIKE
 ANY OF THEM.  
*


*
THIS AFFECT IS PLASTIC WRAP
*


*
BET YOU CAN'T GUESS WHOSE PLACE
THIS WAS????
**
*
THIS WAS AT MY  MY DAUGHTER'S PLACE,
BUT IT COULD HAVE JUST AS WELL BEEN
AT MY SON'S, CAUSE THEY ARE BOTH SO
MUCH LIKE MY HUBBY IN  TEMPERATE.
*

*
THAT TICKET SAYS "FATHER OF THE BRIDE".
WE HAVE SEEN BOTH I AND II.  THEY ARE
GREAT MOVIES IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THEM.
I THINK THE LANGUAGE IS GOOD...... BUT
 I HAVE TO BE CAREFUL CAUSE WE HAVE
 A TV GUARDIAN THAT BLIPS OUT THE
CURSING, SO WE FORGET THAT CAUSE WE
 NEVER HEAR IT.
 AND WE LOVE IT, I MIGHT ADD.
*
*
THE END TO A GREAT DAY!!
*
THANKS FOR DROPPING BY
*
HAVE A SIMPLY MARVELOUS EVENING
MY FRIENDS.................
*
Be sure to go over to Susan's
at between naps on the porch
after 10 pm. tonight or tomorrow
and you can see all the great tablescape
ideas from other bloggers too.

AS I WRITE WITH A PHONE INTERVIEW.....
NOW........, RIGHT NOW!! 
 EXCITING JUST TO  HAVE SOME INTEREST
 WHETHER IT PANS OUT OR NOT.
*
WE HAVE LEARNED FROM EXPERIENCE NOT
TO GET TOO EXCITED BY THE FIRST CALL,
 CAUSE USUALLY IT IS A TEST IN SOME
 WAY OR ANOTHER........SO WE ARE WAITING
TO SEE IF THAT MIGHT BE THE CASE
 THIS TIME.  WE'LL SEE...........
*
I THINK HUBBY HAD A REALLY FUN AND
 ENJOYABLE FATHER'S DAY.  BOTH OUR

STAYCATION!!  LOL

 PREPARATIONS, I DIDN'T  GET MUCH
 ACCOMPLISHED AT ALL YESTERDAY,

RIGHT ARM A BIT WHEN WE EXERCISED
SAT. NIGHT, BUT GUESS I WAS TOO EARLY
ON THAT CALL, SO IT IS ACTING UP AGAIN.
REALLY DIDN'T EVEN DO THAT MUCH!! DRATS!!
*
I AM READY TO MOVE ON WITH THAT LIL
PROBLEM, AS YOU CAN WELL IMAGINE!!
AM GLAD THE HOUSE IS CLEAN AND WE HAD 
LEFTOVER LASAGNA....THAT WAS A BLESSING
FOR SURE, SO I COULD REST WITH GUSTO!!
*
ACTUALLY....I REALLY AM READY TO DO
A PROJECT OR SOMETHING, JUST WAITING
ON RIGHTY TO BE READY!!  LOL
*
WE DID MOVE THE FAMILY ROOM FURNITURE
 AROUND  THIS WEEK WHILE WE WERE CLEANING,
CAUSE AFTER ALL...........IT IS OFFICIALLY

SUMMER TIME.............................
AND THE LIVINGS EASSSSSSSSSEEEEE!

*
SORRY GOT A LIL CARRIED AWAY THERE,
I HAVE ALWAYS LIKED THAT SONG!
