Playing and Practicing with a bit of a Moroccan look






Hello Sweet Friends,

Hope your week is going well.

Mine has been a bit more productive
this week since I have been getting
more sleep.  Still experiencing an
energy shortage but guess it will take
 awhile to get that Vit D in my system,
and hopefully that will help.

Oops forgot you don't know about
that yet..............
Guess I had better explain......
Went back to the Drs. on Friday for
the report from all my bloodwork 
and sonograms.  Dr. said most of
my bloodwork was near perfect.....
but I did have a Vit. D deficiency,
and both sonograms showed no
problems other than I do have 1
kidney stone which he said I have
probably always had and will
probably never give me any
 trouble  and sure hoping he is
right about that.....so Dr. was very
positive about everything so I left 
very thankful for the good news
 but a bit perplexed as to why I am
feeling so exhausted, but looked
up the symptoms of a Vit D de-
ficiency and that is one of the 
symptoms So....guess we will see
 what happens.....I am to take 3000 
units of Vit D daily and they will do
 another blood test in 3 months.

Since I have been in this exhausted 
stupor I have had no creativity
pretty much.....course, I have been
thinking about what I want to do
for Fall,  but not ready to do any
thing, which is good, cause I don't
have the energy to do it anyway,
but Monday I just felt like I needed
to do something creative as it always
seems to be like theraphy for me. So 
 was thinking maybe I could just do 
one simple placesetting or something.


So I remembered I have a table runner
 that is sort of Moroccan looking that
 I got when I was in Charleston in
 May.....




I loved the color combo and thought
it would look great white dishes and 
my green place mats that I already have, 
and they did match perfectly but they 
are too big to use with the runner as it
 just doesn't look all that great.....
and I have to use place mats cause
 if I don't use a tablecloth, the tabletop 
is mostly glass and scratches very
 easily.  So sorta just did an easy faux 
placesetting just for the fun of it and
 to have something pretty to post.  lol
and I can always use the camera
 practice as well.

Anyway here are the results of my
playing...........






I layered a green napkin
 over a navy one.






Used my white corelle ware plates and
Borrowed the  bowl from our bedroom






Used my Wedding silverware, as it 
seemed to need something ornate.








Love these lil Moroccan looking
 apetizer/bread plates.... since they
were similar colors decided to 
throw them in the mix.  Got them
at Home Goods in Asheville.










Nice overview





Grabbed a pitcher of hydrangeas
from the guest bedroom





Used my blue everyday glasses,
and
This shot reminded me I needed 
some candle light...........lol






So here it is with some
candle light.  Much better!!










grabbed the cookies from the kitchen, 
and with all of those pieces came up
 with this quick one place setting.
 These are really so  much easier,
but typically I actually have a real
tablescape to share, but this was
fun.  I love the challenge of just
seeing what I can come up with
just by shopping my house.  lol






Well, hope you enjoyed my
playing and photography.......

Thanks for coming by......

Always nice to know
 you came..............


Have a lovely rest of the week.

and 

Keep your light shining brightly!!




Love, Hugs and late
August Blessings,

Nellie

Thankful Thursday August 17, 2017, Golf cart tour #11


I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; 
even at night my heart instructs me. 
Psalm 16:7



Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope it has been a good week, especially
 for those who sent their kiddles back
 to school.


It's been a good week here.....Went to
 get lil darling from preschool yesterday,
for the first time....been a long time
 since I got a kid from school, that is
 for sure. She was quite happy to see
 me too. When she saw me she yelled
 "Grammy" and came running......was
 like a get out of jail free card!!  lol
  Then came home and had lunch with
Grampy and played a short time and
she was falling asleep on mylap. She
 is a child who needs a lot of sleep,
 and they aren't letting them nap now,
so she was exhausted and went out the
 minute her head hit the pillow. 
 Unfortunately for me, Scott came to 
get her early so she woke up but was 
still out of it and then went home, so
 hope it want be that way next week.

Pictures today are from, I bet you
guessed it,  our Spring golf cart
tour of Charleston. S.C.  lol
So on with it..............



I am thankful


#1
that my 2nd sonogram went really
well.  We got there way earlier as
 hubby went a different direction than 
I go, so we were 50 mins. early, and
 they took me in pretty quick and I was
 done by the time I was suppose to be
 starting....so that was nice. 


#2
for a nice lunch at Cracker Barrel
after and some fun shopping at Ross,
Home Goods and Fresh Market.




#3
for a wonderfully fragrant candle
we found at Home Goods for Fall.
It smells like citrus,  but mostly
like oranges......yummy!


#4
for finding some Shashima Tuna
steak on sale at Fresh Market.
I put them in a marinade of olive
oil and lime juice and sprinkled
them with Lawry's seasoned salt
and granulated garlic,  and hubby
grilled them.  They were really
delicious........with rainbow carrots
and green bean casserole.





#5
for my Mother.  Yesterday would
have been her 90th Birthday.  She
 has been in heaven with Jesus for
12 years now.   My Mom taught
me many many great things!


#6
for my Daughter, her birthday 
is Today! and we will sure miss
being with her, but will be seeing
her soon..........Lord willing!!
She and I spent lots of time
gabbing today,  and she spent
some time with a new friend,
and then her hubby was taking
her out for din din.......to a new
place that someone told him 
about.  So sounds like she is
having a special birthday suited
for a special girl.........




#7
for melatonin....I decided to try
it for sleeping and I have had 4
good nights of sleep.  Beats the
sleeping pills my Dr. wanted me
to take..........no thank you!! lol


#8
for having some breeze as I sat
in the sun, very hot,  but much
more bearable when it is breezy.






#9
that lil darlings Mom and Dad 
decided to change her school
schedule to have her go only till 
11:30 every day, so think that
was a great decision, since she
is already transistioning from
2 days to 5 days.  Happy that it
will also give us more time with
her if she does need a nap.


#10
thankful that T-mobile now gives
senior rates.  We just got $37. a
month off our bill......whoo hoo!!
Go T-mobile.....we have had them
for years and they have given us
very good service,  and I get no
sort of payment or perks for saying
any of that,  it is just the truth!!





#11
that I got a box of pictures and stuff in
the mail from my Mom's house, it has
been rather interesting the emotional
 impact it has had on me.  I have been
 very weepy at times for a number of 
reasons that I know and for some
I don't...........lol





#12
that my Drs. appt is finally tomorrow,
so maybe they can figure out what is
up with me lately.





Well, there you have it another week
at Cozy Place.


Thanks for coming by.................


Hope you have a lovely Friday
 and Weekend
with those you hold dear.


Love, Hugs and 
Mid August and back to school
 Blessings,

Nellie
