Good Sunday Morning to you
Here is the verse for today!
But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him,
on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
Psalm 33:22 NIV
Have a Very Blessed Week!
Greetings Sweet Friends,
Hope this finds you doing well. We are still
on the mend over here, we are on day 11 and
this stuff seems to really like us, and doesn't
seem to be budging, altho we are not feeling
horrible, we are not feeling great either, but
we do have some good moments.
Pictures today are from Winter/Valentine's decorating
from the past! I needed the inspiration!!,, lol
So on with my Thankfuls....
Thankful that even tho it took us all day, cause we are still recooping and have to rest in between doing things, because we wear out fast... We managed to open all the windows to air out the house, wash and replace all our bedding, wash our throws as they are germy too, change our A/C filter and spray the house with lysol, and sit outside for a lil bit............and hubby was able to take down the outdoor Christmas lights. We just were bummed we didn't get to watch lil darling cause we didn't want her to catch what we have......we think it was just the flu. So hopefully we were able to chase away all the germs and maybe we can see her and our Son on Sunday.
Note: Unfortunately not, cause we were sitll not feeling great and didn't want them to catch it. Also even with all that degerming it didn't seem to help us at all.
Thankful for our Sweet neighbors who knew we were sick so she made us a huge pot of veggie soup and it is always so delicious, and I was thinking about trying to make some but didn't have the ingredients and didn't have the energy anyway, She called this afternoon and told me she was making it and that her hubby would bring it over when he got home, and her soup is way better anyway.........So what a blessing!
Thankful that we got to talk on the phone with our Son and lil darling since we couldn't see them. It actually made us both feel better............
Thankful for a nice long phone chat with our Daughter as well. That cheered me up too, hubby was taking a nap, so he missed out. lol
Thankful for a comfy bed, and lots of sleep.
Thankful for take out from Tijuana flats on Tuesday night.
I got their Chicken Bowl and I can't even tell you how good
it was.........maybe cause I was so hungry or just cause my
appetite was coming back, but it was pure heaven.....
Thankful to have gotten 100% of our Christmas
decor down and 75% of it packed away, before
we were just too tired to do anymore! lol
It will be waiting for us tomorrow (Wed.)
Note: It is now all happily tucked away
until next Year! Yea!!!
Thankful for instacart, we have pressed it into
service twice this month. Such a blessing when
you are feeling bad and also don't want to
give your sickness to anyone else.
Thankful for the inner direction of the spirit of God.
There is a Detective show we have watched a few times and
it seems like a clean nice show and even has a dog that is so
cute, but I woke up during the night thinking about stuff
that happened on there, nothing graphic, just creepy
thoughts about a murder and how it was done and stuff,
that left me feeling unsettled, so decided it was an open
door to get to my peace, so a door best left shut.
Thankful to hear from another long time friend who is
a dear heart. and sent me some pics of she and her
family on facebook. She even has 2 great grandchildren.
So lovely to see your family all grown up, and always
sweet to hear from old and dear friends.
#11 and 12
Thankful that I didn't have to go to the emergency room
last night, as I was in process of making waldorf salad
and chopping apples with a new knife I bought a few
weeks back, and had just commented to hubby how
quick and easy it was chopping the apples with the
new sharp knife and started in on the celery but when
I went to wash the celery I had the celery in one
hand and the knife in the other and don't really know
how I did it, but I cut about an inch long but deep
gash at the bottom of my thumb which was bleeding
a lot, but we finally got it stopped, so very thankful
for that, and the fact, I cut it on my thumb and not
on the fleshy part between my thumb and forefinger
as that probably would have needed stitches as it
would be a much harder area to heal.
Well, That's it for cozy place this week,
this is the Sickie edition.......lol
Thanks for coming by,
Have a Wonderful rest of the week.
Love, Hugs, and Healthy Blessings,
Hello Sweet Friends,
Hope this finds you well and enjoying the New Year!
Can't say that is true for us yet!! lol We are still trying
to get over whatever this is.......still very tired and now
I have developed a loose cough, and hubbies dry cough
has turned into a loose cough a few days ago and
he is coughing way less now, so hoping since I am 2
days behind him on when mine started, we are hoping
this means we are on the way out of this virus soon..........lol
Trying to get the rest of our Christmas decorations down
today, I was gonna leave part of them up cause we were
supposed to leave for my Daughters in SC yesterday,
for a week, but the Lord was not willing!! lol
but we know that Father knows best, and we also were
encouraged to know that our Daughter is going to come
in February to see one of her best friends for her
birthday and of course, plans to spend a few days
with us as well, so that made us feel a lot better, and
we can hopefully plan another trip in the next few months.

Here is the verse for today!
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Welcome to Thankful Thursday,
I am gonna be short in my opening today
as you will see why on # 10..........
Pics to are of Winter Decor from the past.
Sorry some of these are so blurry but had
a dickens of a time pulling them out
of my google pic storage, and just
didn't have the energy to find others.
Thankful for dinner out with hubby
to Outback Steak house, we were fianlly
able to get in this week, no wait.
Dinner was lovely.....
Thankful hubby found a Ree Drummond
Cookbook at Sams. In case you don't know
who she is....She is " Pioneer Woman" and
I used to love watching her show, but
guess they took it off the air, but she
was a judge on the Christmas cookie
Challenge show we watched, and she is
a very kind lady which made us want
to buy her book, lots of family photos
were included, so can't wait to spend
some time looking at it. We did look
at the first chapter on breakfast, and
it was good, made us decide to make
some sweet potato pancakes, my recipe,
but inspiring none the less. We loved
all the pics she has of her family
throughout the book, charming!
Thankful for a really lovely day with
lil darling. Got to hear about her
version of the camping trip, and also
about a field trip this week to Legoland.
Also, we had her fav breakfast, played
Sorry and a new game hubby found
at Marshalls called Tree-opoly. It is like
Monopoly in some ways, but she was
bored with it ( and was trying to put my
hair up with clips) in less than 20 mins.
and honestly so was I....lol She painted
some sun catchers for her parents so
we are gonna put them up as a gift
for Valentines Day, then we watched
a couple of holiday dessert challenges,
took some wagon rides, while singing
Christmas songs, and then played
restaurant. We are the customers
and she is gonna make one great
server when she grows up. lol
Every time we play that she adds
some new thing she learned. This
week it was "I will text you when
your table is ready".. lol She is
such a hoot, and it was so great
to see her as it had been almost
Thankful that I finally got the bug to start
taking my Christmas Decorations down.
I am not taking it all down just the stuff
that looks really Cristmasy, am leaving
anything that might look like Winter.
Thankful that my hubby now makes us
breakfast a few times a week. Love it.
He makes scrambled eggs and bacon
when we have lil darling cause she loves
his scrambled eggs, and he makes break
fast sandwiches for us, on cheesy bagels,
It's all yummy and especially yummy
since I don't have to do it.........lol
Thankful for the "Jesus Calling" devotional
book by Sarah Young. I have read it a
number of times, and it always speaks to
me....so we decided to do it together for
Thankful for Chicken Salad.....I made
some today and it has been since Summer
since I have made it, and was delish
as always, one of my favorite sandwiches.
I put it on toasted Ciabatti bread. Um Um!

Thankful I am feeling much better the
last few days. On Sunday hubby and I
both started to feel like we were getting
colds again. He is still feeling about
the same but not coughing as much, so
#9 and 10
Thankful that I am feeling way better
than the last few days since I wrote
#8, I started running a fever on Tues.
and Wed. and had a bad headache and
body aches, but my fever finally broke
during the night, so am feeling way better
today, just still weak and tired but that
is way better than with the fever and all
that goes with it, So much for thinking
I had escaped it. On the Plus side
I lost 2 pds...........lol Hubby has lost
about 6pds, just hasn't had a lot of
appetite since he was sick, but he has
been feeling better since about Tuesday.
Thankful that we weren't both sick at
the same time so we could take care
of each other.........
Thankful for My Daughter, Neighbor
and young lady from church who
offered to help us if we needed any
thing. My Daughter text us and said
Mom if you need anything from Publix
cough drops, cough syrup or soup
or anything I will send it to you. She
lives in SC and has insta-cart and we
do too, but thought her offer was so
sweet and thoughtful. She's a gem!
Thankful for all those who are praying
for us, and some who are checking on us
daily thru texting to see how we are
coming along. That means so much.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place today.....
Have a Wonderful rest of the week.
Love, Hugs and
Healthy Blessings to You!!
Good Sunday Morning to You

Here are the verses for today!
"But the Lord is the one who is marching before you!
He is the one who will be with you! He won’t let you down.
He won’t abandon you. So don’t be afraid or scared!"
Shalom.......Peace Be with YOU!
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.

Winters here, I like to enjoy them from
Thankful for running into our sweet neighbors
at the grocery store, that has never happened
before and it was truly a simple pleasure,
cause we had such a fun time chatting,
and because we haven't seen them lately,
as she has been sick, but now feeling better!
Thankful for dinner out on Thursday evening
just the 2 of us to Carrabbas. We were gonna
go to Outback for a change, but they had a
super long wait, and I wasn't too thrilled
about going to Carabbas at first even tho
I really like them, cause we just had Italian
food on Sunday, but it turned out to be a
great choice, and we really enjoyed it.
and it got us out of the house. lol
Thankful for a quiet and relaxing New
Years eve with my honey.
Thankful for the gift of contentment
in our lives.
Thankful for a good day at church
and a delicious lunch with our friends
to Texas Roadhouse. It was great

Thankful for our Son-in-love. He is
such a great guy and he fits into our
family so well, and we love him too pieces.
Today is his birthday!
Thankful for a long telephone conversation
with my Daughter and Son this week.
Heaven for Mom!! lol
Thankful for the gift of being retired,
and what a blessing it is to us, and
hopefully to others. We have lots
more time to pray for and encourage
others, and more time for family and
others as well. Also time for making
and sending more cards
Thankful for a new book we are
reading called "The Case for Heaven"
by Lee Stroebel.
Thankful that facebook notifies us each
day of when someone has a birthday.
It always makes me feel like a celebrity
every year, and love that I can help make
others feel the same way. For a long time
I couldn't figure out how people knew
it was my birthday, cause didn't and still
can't necessarily figure out Face book,
but finally I asked my Daughter, and
she told me, so love that I can now
makes others feel loved on their
Thankful for these Baking Challenge Contests
they have on Discovery Plus, we started
watching with the Christmas cookie Challenge
bake off, and now others ones they have.
I dont know why but hubby and I both
really get a kick out of them, and I have
learned some things about baking too.
They are just a fun competition!!
Thankful for Spinach balls, they are delish
and a good way to get a veggie into our
diet. My SIL Susan makes them, so I knew
they were good. So made my first batch

want a lil snack, and they are quick and
easy to make as well.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week.
