Greetings Sweet Friends, Hope this finds you doing well, and looking forward to this weekend of Independence Day celebration. It might only be at your home but that's okay we can still celebrate!! It has been a good and sort of busy week here as we are pre- paring for our Daughter, Son- in-love and furry Grandson dogs visit. We of course, are really looking forward to it, and also celebrating the 4th with them, as well. Thought I would in- clude a 4th of July table from the past table in case someone might be still in need of ideas. I typically always use paper goods mixed with glasses and silverware for this holiday as they are just morefestive and easy for clean up as well....and just shop the house for red, whiteand blue items that work to make a vignette. I always keep flags and these mylar stars on hand as they make it easier to put together a centerpiece as well.
So on with my Thankfuls.... #1
Thankful that we got started on a book hubby got for his birthday from Moi..... It has long chapters and forward and introduction but is quite interesting. The United States of Socialism by Dinesh D'Souza. We are not thru the first chapter yet.....
#2 Thankful that our Son and family returned safely from their Vacation last week, and from the pics I saw on facebook looks like they had a great time, and once I talked to them....they did really enjoy it.
#3 Thankful for our National Guard and that they have put new laws into affect about destroying our historical statues, and hopefully enforcing the ones al- ready on the books.
Thankful that we are hearing more pos- itive things from a number of different Doctors about the Covid situation. Which is very good and very interesting, since we don't know what to believe these days.
#5 Thankful for "Caramel Frappe's" from MacDonalds. They are much less expensive than Starbucks and more delicious....at least hubby and I think so......lol
#6 Thankful for a new series we found on Netflix called "Vindication". Have watched 2 episodes and they are quite good.
#7 Thankful that I finally got around to doing a little bathroom refresh in our guest bathroom. Have been wanting to do it, just haven't been in the mood....nothing like having company/or family coming to get me moving!! lol #8 Thankful and relieved that a dear friend of ours of 40 yrs. who had surgery on Tues. afternoon (and is an at risk patient) came through the surgery fine and is doing well. Praise the Lord
#9 Thankful he was doing so well he got out of the hospital before noon today. (Thursday) #10 Thankful this has been wildlife week at our house, we have seen our lil wild brown bunny a number of times, a black snake, a hawk attacking something to eat (we think a lizard) , and a racoon eating berries in our backyard and a flock of Ibis and Sandhill Cranes in the front yard. So it has been an active week and We just get a real kick out of seeing all the wildlife.....
#11 Thankful that our Son came and sprayed our bushes today with something that will cause them not to grow so much and to pro- duce more flowers or leaves. He is in the Ag business and needs to do some experimental trials, so we said hey, we would like to try it. So excited to see howmuch bush trimming it saves us especially because of the Florida heat.
#12 Thankful that I finally found some pink carnations for my coffee table. The other mini ones I had finally died (but they lasted over 3 weeks) which was awesome, so wanted some more pink flowers but was hard to find them, took going to 3 grocery stores, and they had one small bouquet of the larger pink carnations, but they are a lil darker, loved the baby pink, but these will work and look pretty once they all open up, so was happy to finally find this simple pleasure and it got us out of the house. lol ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week. Thanks for stopping by and.... Have a Wonderful 4th of July Celebration and Weekend. Love, Hugs and Independence Day Blessings, Nellie Sharing with: Bloggers Pit Stop Shabby Art Boutique
