Valentines Breakfast Table




Hello Sweet Friends,

Hope you had a good and productive day.

Ours was that......worked on a table for my
Sister-in-law Susans birthday and then
decided it was time for all the poinsettias
and the red to go from the family and
 dining room, so did that and added green
and some white it it's place, leaning
a lil more toward Spring but still have
Winter accents too.


Hubby got a lot of bush cutting done out
in our front yard today which was great,
 and needed doing. We try to cut them
 way back every other year, so that they
 don't grow too tall.  So we are making
 progress.....and I love to see progress
 on any project, it just spurs me on.....


Thought I would show you our break-
fast table on Valentines day.  I set it 
pretty for breakfast cause lil darling 
was here with us in the morning.
That lil sweetie loves her some bacon
and eggs and usually orange rolls, but
 I gave her a choice between orange
 rolls and Valentine mini cupcakes,
 since we didn't want to sugar her 
up too much! She chose the cup-
cakes, as she loves those too.






Just threw this together with pretty much
what I had....other than the plates and
napkins...






Hubby gave me this beautiful dwarf 
azaleas.They are pinky peach,  but they
 look very peach in the pictures.
They are so pretty whatever color
they are...........lol






Picked these cute plates and napkins up
at the dollar tree.






A few overviews












with a Posterized affect








Had this Dove candy box from a few 
years back that hubby gave me, (their
chocolates are really good, by the way)
 so just added it in with some hearts 
and candles, of course.







We had a nice enjoyable breakfast.
Hubby does our bacon and eggs
all the time now.  I love that!
Cause other than grilling that is
the main cooking that he does,
but he does help out as my 
Sous chef a lot!  Think that's
how you spell it....lol






Believe it or not I just found out what 
sous chef was from a movie about
 a month or so ago.  Always heard
of it, but never knew what it meant.





Just in case you don't know, it is a chef
that chops everything for the head chef.
Makes cooking a lot faster and easier
for sure.  My Dad was a Chef but he
didn't have a sous chef but he did
have a lot of people to clean up 
after him which was nice, as he
was a great cook but messy!  lol


Well, hope you have a lovely day,
and Thanks for coming by.








Love, Hugs and 
last of February Blessings,
Nellie

Scripture Sunday




Happy Sunday
Sweet Friends,

Here is the verses for Today!!



Even youths grow tired and weary,
 and young men stumble and fall; 
 but those who hope in the LORD

 will renew their strength. 

They will soar on wings like eagles; 
they will run and not grow weary, 
they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:30-31 NIV


Have a lovely Sunday,

Hugs,
Nellie

Thankful Thursday February 20, 2020, Our Winter Family room 2020


But 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  NIV



Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope you have had a really good week.

It has been a really good week here,
just getting some things done that 
needed to get done.  Been working
outside some and really do love 
doing that when I am in the mood,
and I have been in the mood...lol



Pictures today are from our 
Winter Family room this year.

So on with my Thankfuls.




#1
Thankful for a fun time with lil
darling over the weekend, as we
had several days and sleepovers
while Mommy and Daddy were
away.



#2

Thankful that we did some tree
limb cutting today (Monday) 
that really needed doing. Lil 
darling motivated us over the
 weekend as she was lamenting
about how much she missed her
 swing. We used to have it on our
 tree in front of the house and last 
Spring we had to have the tree
 taken down, cause it was causing
drain field issues, so we had a tree
in the backyard so hubby finally
put it back up today.  She will
be thrilled when she comes
on Thursday.





#3

Thankful that our kids all had a
 good time together at the beach 
house you saw on my blog on
Tuesday.


#4
Thankful for the signs of Spring 
cause I love all the new green leaves
and how everything just burst forward
 into the newness of life....which is
such a reminder of Jesus' resurrection
from the dead,
but have to say I am not as Thankful 
about the heat that comes along with
 it....... not complaining,
Just being honest!







#5
Thankful for my easy peasy clothes
 drying rack.  I wear a lot of cotton 
and I don't like to put it in the dryer
due to it shrinking my clothes, and
it is just so easy to store and pull up.





#6

Thankful that we got more yard
work done, this time in our front
yard.  We had white Lantana all
along our walkway and it looks
so pretty when it is blooming but
it grows so quickly we are con-
stantly having to cut it back off
our walkway and it also causes
our walkway to get mildew and
looks icky, so we decided it was
time for it to go. Gonna do some-
thing that is much easier to deal
with.....just have to figure out
what now??





#7
Thankful for some fresh mixed
veggies we found at our Publix
market in the produce dept.... it 
had onions, mushrooms, red and 
yellow peppers, and broccoli.
So all I had to do was throw it
in a bowl and add some salt
pepper, granulated garlic and
olive oil, mix to cover it with
 the oil, and we cooked it on 
the grill in a special veggie
grill pan and it was delicious,
and so easy..........love that!!


#8 and 9
Thankful I have a Drs. appt.
today for a physical, cause I
have been having some issues
and hoping Dr. can get to the
bottom of them.  (Thursday)
Thankful that my Drs. appt. 
went well and he gave me
more antiobiotics cause they
think I have a low grade UTI
 still.  Now have to make appts
for all those other things they
have to check, bone density,
Mammo, blood work, and
more.   It's like the never
ending story every time we
go for a physical.  lol  but
I am sure most of us feel that
way, but I am thankful our Ins.
covers all that and that we
have all those things avail-
able to us.  Not everyone
does.







#10
Thankful for the bible and
our lessons we have each
week that teach us so many
good things from God's word.













#11
Thankful that lil darling was so excited
about having her swing back up, we
 spent most of our time with her on 
Thursday outside swinging. Grampy 
got a  work out swinging her....lol


#12
Thankful that we got our birthday shopping
 done for lil darling as her birthday is in early
 March. I have so much fun buying her clothes
and she loves clothes.....so it is a win/win
for both of us......and I found so many cute
things today.  Very happy about that and
can't wait to see her in them!



#13
Thankful for a trip to our favorite Mexican
restaurant and we so enjoyed our food.
I got a taco salad tonight and it really
was scrumptious.   lol





Well, that's it for cozy place this week.


Love having you drop by.....

and

You have a splendid  Friday and Weekend.


Love, Hugs, and
February Blessings,

Nellie
