Thankful Thursday August 11, 2016, another coastal Tablescape....from the past














let all who take refuge in you be glad;
 let them ever sing for joy.
 Spread your protection over them,
 that those who love your name
 may rejoice in you.
Psalm 5:11


Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you well and 
happy 
and enjoying summer.

We are well and happy
 and at least,
 trying to enjoy summer!
 ( if I am inside with the A/C running
I am very happy) lol ... I expect it
 might be the same for many of you
 too!!   Am I right??

Can't believe we are almost half
 way thru August already. Want
be long we will be thinking about
Thanksgiving and Christmas!  lol
But for right now I am trying to
figure out what to do for Dee's
birthday which is coming up
next week.  Once they find out
when they are moving that will
make it a bit easier possibly.

Since we are still experiencing
Summer thought I would add pics 
of another coastal tablescape from
 a few years back. Hope you enjoy it.


Well,  on with Thankful
Thursday................


I am thankful


#1
that my our son-in-love got the news
on Friday that he got the job in
 Charleston, so he and Dee will definitely
 be moving to Charleston, S C. , they
 just don't know when it will happen, 
 but should hopefully find out Thursday.




#2
that we got to go to Scott and Megans
house for dinner on Friday evening.
Dinner was great, but unfortunately,
we had all had a very busy week and 
were all so tired, so that sort of put a
 bit of a damper on things, but definitely
 better than not getting together at all, 
but guess getting together on Sunday's
 are our best bet!!






#3
that Dee and Jerry already have a
contract for their present home and
even have a back up one as well.......
we didn't think they
would have any trouble selling......
 but the timing was phenomenal,
 less than 2 days............







#4
that God knows what is going on
in our world, even tho it might not
look like it.....nothing takes him by
surprise, like it does us, and that is
comforting to know.........





#5

to hear that a friend of my Sil Susan's
is in remission.  Actually he is her
 friends son-in-law, but we have been
 praying for him and it is truly a miracle
 as he had stage 4 cancer in his brain
 and chest.  God is good..........






#6
for a new discovery......
eye relief drops.
They work wonders for itchy eyes,
as they have an antihistamine in 
them.  My eyes have been driving
me crazy with itching lately until I
found and used these eye drops and
 that was almost a week ago and I
have had no intense itching until
I mowed the lawn last evening.
So thankful for these drops.





#7
for a meatball sub from subway,
had forgotten how good they are
as it has been a really long time
since I had one...........it was
Yummy!!





#8
 for all the sweet folks who visit
my blog all the time.  You are a
blessing to me.





#9
for the lil snippets of time that
we do get to spend on the porch.
Usually early in the morning or
after it rains and cools off a bit.
  We are waiting patiently for Fall 
so we can have some dinners
 out there..................

#10
that there was a spider under my shoe
 and not in it.........lol
I have garden mules (shoes) that I leave
 on the porch for when I go outside, and 
have a very bad habit (I know now) of 
just putting them on and going about my 
business. This morning I put one on and
 underneath was a huge fat spider (who
was pregnant with a gagillion children)
 I found out after I smashed her!!
Every seen that......you smash the spider
and think that takes care of that then all
of a sudden lil tiny things (baby spiders)
run everywhere,  it is shocking.......
I have no doubt if she were inside my
shoes I most likely would have gotten
bitten. Needless to say I will be
checking the inside of my mules
 from now on.....lol





#11
that I got to sit in the sun for a short
while, cause about 10-15 mins. is 
all I can stand!!  lol
and for the adorable lil dragon fly
 that was flitting about nearby,  I think
they are so cute and they remind me
of tiny helicopters..........






#12
that the Lord is giving me a good 
want to attitude about exercise and
 eating this week, definitely an 
answer to my prayers.  
3 pds lost........so am quite happy
 about that........course, more to
go..........but a nice start!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thanks for dropping by........


Hope you have had a good 
week of Thankfuls as well.....





Keep your light shining brightly!!

Hugs and  Continued 
Sweet Summer Blessings,

Nellie

#1. Praise the LORD. GOD is so good all the time!
#2. Just being in one another's company is joy in itself!
#3. GOD's leading is awesome! When we do things in His timing, He gets "the job" done for us!
#4. AMEN! "All things work to the good for those who love the LORD!"
#5. I can't stop my tears of joy to our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Holy Father GOD! For this is truly His miracle and answer to prayers for Tony, family, and friends!
#6. Those lawn mowers can surely stir up the pollen and allergens! I usually get the itchy eyes in spring and again in November.
#7. Hmmm, hmm, good! I usually get Publix's Ultimate sub without the oil, vinegar, mayo.
#8. I love your posts!
#9. Sounds cool, ha!
#10. I had that happen one time in my bathroom! It was a huge spider! It's amazing how you don't see the tiny spots until they begin to run! I hate killing them, but they are in the wrong place! If they were outside, I wouldn't bothered them!
#11. John (Revelation) describes helicopters as locust. I had a big red and orange locust on my gate when I went to open it. It was a good 4 inches long! I like the dragonflies big eyes! They look like they have a lot of spots in their eyes!
#12. I've been eating better! I've been keeping my weight within a 5 pound margin. Thank the LORD!
I love you all, Susan
