Scripture Sunday






Happy Sunday Morning
Sweet Friends,

Here is the verse for today.




 I will listen to what God the LORD says;
he promises peace to his people,
 his faithful servants— but let them
 not turn to folly.

Psalm 85:8 NIV



Have a Peaceful Sunday,

Blessings,
Nellie

Thankful Thursday November 15, 2018, Fall homes tour #3 of Charleston



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 this finds you well and
happy today.


Have to say we are....
Today is our 5th Saturday of the
week.  lol  We have a book on
retirement that our daughter gave 
us and it is called "Every day is
 Saturday", and I have to say it
really does seem like that!!  lol
But we are not complaining,
believe me!!  but we do have to
make a point of checking the
date on the calendar these days.

Gonna be a quiet day here today,
at least I think and hope so any-
way!!  lol   since the last 2 days
have been busy....
But ya never know.......


Pics today are still from our
Fall golf cart tour of Charleston.

So on with my Thankfuls.



#1
Thankful for a really fun time
we all had this weekend with my 
daughter being here and our
celebration of Scott and Megans
birthday.  It was a fully packed,
not quite, 2 days and it went by 
very quickly but we thorougly
enjoyed every minute of it.


#2
Thankful that she got home
safe and sound on Sunday
evening, after attending a
baby shower for one of her
best friends on Sunday.






#3
Thankful that she and Jerry will be 
coming again for Christmas this year.


#4
Thankful for some needed rain a few
days this week, as our yard is feeling
 the stress of not having much shade
 since our tree broke and they had to
 cut so much back.





#5
Thankful to have seen a cute lil squirrel
 eating mushrooms that are growing in
 the yard. He looked like a buzz saw
he was eating so fast,  think he saw me
watching him and he must have been
 afraid I was gonna interrupt his
mushroom eating fest........lol


#6

Thankful for new bike tires on hubbies
 bike so we could ride our bikes again.







#7

Thankful for our 2nd Fall meal.....
Southwestern White chili,  it is really 
easy and delicious.  It is a Kraft foods
 recipe, and here is the link in case you 
would like to try it...Click here. or go
 to Kraftfoods.com and type in
Southwestern white chili.


#8
Thankful for a phone call from a
 long time friend that we have
 known since right before we got
 married, so it has been a 48+ year 
friendship.  She and her husband
are such a sweet couple, and have
really been thru some very difficult
things, but next year they will
celebrate 50 Years of marriage.
You don't hear that often!!






#9
Thankful for a nice day and evening 
on Thursday, walking in the mall, 
having our fav smoothie, picking up
 lil darling from school, and going
back out to do some Christmas
shopping and capping it off with
 dinner at Long Horns.




#10
Thankful that lil darling got to meet 
the lil girl next door when she was
 out playing soccer in the front yard 
with her uncle. They invited her to 
play soccer with them. and she had
 so much fun and of course, didn't 
want to leave.
The lil girl is 5 years old too, which
is nice.






#11
Thankful for the nice cool snap
we are having here in Florida
right now.  So delightful.
It actually went down to 44
during the night.  Love it...



#12
Thankful for a young man that
was the greeter in "Ross" store
last night and also our server
at the restaurant: both very out-
going and friendly but just were
 above and beyond the normal,
that you couldn't help but notice.
You could tell they were fellows
who were trying to make a
 difference in their world with
their kindness, and it shined
like the night.
Love seeing that......just blesses
my heart, as we should all be
doing that in this difficult 
envirionment in which we
are living. I think it gives
people hope....it sure does
for me.  Cause that is 
surely not what I hear on
from the news media.







Well, that's our week at Cozy
Place.........


Thanks for stopping by....


Hope you have a lovely weekend.

Love, Hugs, and
Chilly Blessings,

Nellie

Fall Birthday Table for Son and Daughter-in-love





  Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends,

      So, what cha' been up to so far 
this week?

After the whirlwind of last week,
we have been up to nothing but
resting....I was so exhausted on
Monday but hoping that today I
have some energy.

Thought I would share our birth-
day table for my Son and Daughter-
in-Love today.  Megan's birthday
isn't until the end of November,
but she and Scott will be away
on a birthday trip. so figured we 
would just do it early this year
since our Daughter was here to
share in the celebration as well.







I started out knowing I wanted to 
use this beautiful tablecloth my 
Daughter had given me, since she
wasn't here when I have used it 
before now.






and also use it with my white corelleware.
I have a solid white set and white that is
embossed as well (a 4 pc. place setting 
of the embossed),  so I used a pc. of the 
embossed at each place setting along with
 a solid white..... either a plate or bowl, 
hard to tell in the pictures, but it looks
nice.  In the above pic it was a solid
plate with an embossed bowl. 
If you click on any pic they will all
get larger for better viewing pleasure.






So then needed to come up with a 
centerpiece that would work.......
due to time constraints I decided
just to swap out the centerpiece 
from my coffee table with the 
one that was on the dining room
 table already.  Just added some
more embellishments to it like
the apples, nuts and potpourri.





We had gotten these fun and delicious
bread sticks at Traders Joe's when we
were in Charleston, so decided to just
use them as our bread along with some
Bruschetta sauce for dipping.






So just stuck them in glasses that 
matched our drinking glasses.
Always fun to do something different.






Added a few real white baby boo pumpkins 
with some candles as well.












Love these darling lil pumpkins
 that I won from Becky over at
Timewashed blog, as a give away
a few years ago.  








Since I had multicolored Fall napkins
decided to make it a multicolored
table....






and couldn't decide if I should use
 blue or brown glasses, but there
 is quite a bit of blue in the table-
cloth as well,  so my hubby and 
daughter said they liked the
           blue the best.........so 
went with the blue......
either would have worked,
but since I used the blue tray
it worked well,  if I had used
a brown or wood tray the
brown would probably have
worked better.





An Overview








Thanks for stoppin' by......


Have a Lovely Week



Love, Hugs and
November Blessings,

Nellie
