Happy Sunday Sweet Friends,
Here are the verses for today!
Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things.
2 Peter 1:20-21 NIV
Have a Lovely Sunday,
Thankful the kids had a great time in Asheville
clebrating their 10th anniversary.
Thankful that are new phones came in.......our service provider
informed us we had to get new phones again!!! They are doing
away with 3G phones (which we had not purchased too long
ago). So hubby has been working on them the last few days
and has them both up and running. Have to say I am not
thrilled about learning a new phone again!! lol
But.....at least we have phones...........
Note: Happy to report I am liking my new phone
way better than I expected. Hooray!!
Thankful once again for our Governor DeSantis, he is doing such an awesome job for Florida. He is now offering our ports to try and help the problems they are having with the supply chain. Hopefully the powers that be will allow it.
Thankful for Saturday nights "share and prayer" times with some dear friends of almost 40 years that live in Gainesville, over the phone. That is the nice thing about speaker phones. We have been doing this for about 6 weeks now, and it has been such a blessing for all of us.
Thankful we finally found a Skate Board we have been trying to find for the Christmas Toy Box ministry at Church.
Thankful for a lil bit cooler weather on Sunday morning, and being able to sit outside by myself, (hubby was taking a nap) in the afternoon so I decided it was cool and breezy in the shade so decided to go sit out and read a book, cause I haven't done that in ages, and actually took a mini nap too, it was so peaceful. Actually got to sit out on the porch again this morning with hubby and do our Bible reading. This cooler weather and time of year is just such a delight to me. God's handiwork everywhere as some of our trees are just starting to shed some, and the leaves are turning yellow and brown.
So Relaxing and Refreshing!
Thankful for dinner out at our fav Mexican restaurant
and then we had to run to the grocery store, so we went
to a different Publix in a town near by (same town as
the restaurant) just to do something different, it is
a newer store, so that alone was fun, but they also
had a special magazine rack, and since our Barnes
and Nobles went out of business, that is the first
time we have seen that anywhere, course, it is no
where as big as the ones at B & N but it was fun to
be able to browse all the Fall and Christmas decor
and craft magazines. That alone was worth the trip
for me. LoL Then we came home, and after putting
our groceries away took a short but fun moonlit
walk up our street. (with a flashlight too.) LoL
You know anything you can do these days that is
a wee bit different is helpful to our
mental /emotional state.
Thankful that we got to work out in our yard on
one of the cooler days. We rescued another tree
that was trying to be invaded by grapevine. lol
Thankful that we launched our Card Shop website
on Facebook yesterday and got a good response.
Have to say I was a bit timid about it....that is the
shy side of me coming out. Didn't know my hubby
was gonna do that until just before he did it.
But it needed to happen!
Thankful for a chat with my daughter, while we
were both cleaning, and now a clean house.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week,
Thanks for dropping by
Hope you have a lovely lovely Weekend,
Love, Hugs, and Mid-October
Greetings Sweet Friends,
Hope you week is going well, our's
has been productive and a little
worrisome. We found out on
Monday that our Son was sick
and feeling awful, and he thought
it might just be the flu since his
covid at home test said negative
but on Tuesday, he decided to do
another one and it read positive
for Covid, so we've of course,
been a bit worried about him.
He seems to be doing a lil bit
better daily, and is very tired,
which of course, goes along
with Covid. So if you feel so
led please pray for him, as
he is feeling pretty punk still,
and we would be ever so
thankful for your prayers.
We are thankful he seems to
be moving in the right direction
at least, feeling a lil bit better
daily, but think it takes quite
awhile from what we hear to
get back to normal.
Pictures today are of our family
room, all gussied up for Fall in 2021.
Actually this room has been done
for awhile, just didn't have time
to do pictures.
Thankful for a fun day with lil darling last Friday, we got to have her all day with no school work, just a fun day, as she was out on Fall break, so we did all sorts of things, had a Smallmart shop, had a fun nail salon time, made pumpkin bread, Painted a pot to put her markers in for her desk, had a dance recital, played 'Sorry", a matching game, Mother may I, and the ungame ( a really old but great game to get kids talking), read some, and even took a short nap and rested, also had breakfast and a late lunch. It was a great day!
Thankful for this sweet and precious lil girl......she just totally amazes us all the time. She is such a precious gift from God to all of us. Course, I am sure you probably feel the same about your's too.
Thankful for dinner out at Olive Garden and being able to find what we thought was a nice jewelry craft set, for our Christmas Toy Box ministry @ church. Still need to find a skate board for a boy.
#4 and 5
Thankful that Sat. was just a much needed down day for us, we were tired today. Talked to our big girl, our daughter for awhile, and did some online Christmas shopping. So thankful that I have pretty much finished lil darling up.
Thankful for a good morning at church, and seeing a young gal again, we met some months back. A lot has happened to her in the last months, and it was good to see her, and think we are gonna keep in touch. Also thankful for lunch at Cracker Barrel with our friends, and leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
Thankful that we decided to try Freshly prepared dinners. We had sort of wanted to try them, but thought it would definitely make things easier for my SIL Susan, so ordered for both of us, as it made it a lil less expensive. They arrived, so can't wait to try them, she has already had one and said it was delish.
Note: I had Pork carnitas and they were very good, hubby had peppered steak and liked it but wasn't thrilled with it. Susan has liked most all hers so far. For some reason the 2 I had, have not set well on my tummy, so don't know if I have a touch of a bug or something maybe. Hubby had no problems with his. So just decided to try 2 new ones this week,and see how that goes..........lol
Thankful our Daughter and hubby had a nice getaway for their 10th Anniversary, Enjoying their old stomping grounds in Asheville, N.C., where they used to live about 5 yrs. ago.I Have to say I have missed Asheville....it's a really neat place, and we have very fond memories from when they lived there.
Thankful to have made 3 new cards this week. It's been awhile. Their Anniversary was the inspiration that made me get going again.
Thankful that we get to have lil darling for a sleepover tonight. (Thursday) We had a fun time as always, we took her out to Texas Roadhouse, she loves that place, and we don't get to take her out too often.
Thankful that Susan continues to do well. She is getting stronger all the time.
Thankful that I have finally finished
my Fall decorating, not a minute
too soon I might add. Now just
have to pack it away and enjoy.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place
Glad you could stop in
Have a great weekend.
Love, Hugs and
Mid October Blessings,
Hello Sweet Friends
Hope this finds you doing well.....
Told you last week about a recipe I sort of made up, that was really very easy to make and was truly delicious. Sorry but I didn't think to take a picture of the Party chops dish until we finished eating!! lol
So this will have to do for now!
I have dubbed it Party Chops because I sort of got the idea from a "Party Chicken" recipe that I have used for years, that I got from a friend. In case you are interested in the
Just click on it.
We are having that for Thanksgiving, but I make stuffing with it as well. It's a great make ahead dish. Just so you know..... we heard yesterday from our server at Cracker Barrel that they would not be doing Thanksgiving dinners this year because there was a Turkey Shortage.
That might just be in Florida but I don't know....so might want to get your Turkeys early.
So... Anywho, here is the recipe for
6 boneless pork loin chops
Lawrys Seasoned Salt
1- can of cream of Celery Soup
1- 16 Oz. Sour Cream
Place Pork chops in a glass baking dish, and sprinkle with Seasoned Salt. Mix Soup and Sour cream together, and pour over the top of the pork chops evenly. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 1 hr. and 15 minutes. (You Just take a pork chop out and cut into it to make sure they are done all the way if you'd like, cause oven temps. do vary at times. Also cause I forgot to the time I put it in the oven, but I think it cooked about 1 hr. and 15 mins., but not for sure! lol
I served mine with Jasmine rice and a salad.
Hint: It makes a nice gravy for the rice. Next time I think I will add 2 cans of soup and 2 containers of sour cream, especially if you and your family like a lot of gravy.
Hubby and I really enjoyed it.
Well, Thanks for stopping by,
hope you try and enjoy the recipe.
Love, Hugs and
Mid October Blessings,
Good Sunday Morning
Here is the verse for today!
Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.
Psalm 127:1 NIV
Have a Blessed day.
Greetings Sweet Friends,
How's YOU?? Boo Boo!
We are doing well, been another busy
week, but been a very good week too.
Lots of answers to prayer. Hoping to
finish my Fall decorating, really not
much left to do but just can't seem to
get there, cause too many interruptions,
but it will happen soon, I'm sure! lol
Pictures today are of another Fall
Thankful for some long conversations with
my daughter this week, been missing that
just due to lack of time.
Thankful for a lovely prayer and communion
Service on Sunday. Much needed.
Thankful that our former Youth Pastor
and his wife and kids were visiting this weekend and we got to see them.
They have really been missed, cause
they are such a sweet family.
Thankful for lunch out with our friends
at Cheddar's. The food wasn't so good, but
the company was great as always.
Thankful for some fun texts with my
daughter as she was sending me some
pictures of things she is buying for
the client, where she is decorating
the beach house, she has some great
ideas and I think it's gonna look
amazing when she's done, but she
can't get started until December cause
they still have renters in the house.
Thankful that my Sister-in-law will be getting
one of those 4 wheel walkers, so she can be
able to walk outside safely. Also that she was
able to get in her truck easily for the trip home.
Thankful that Susan came home from
the Rehab center on Tuesday, and is
walking really well, but with a regular
walker. We can tell she is much stronger
than she was prior to her fall. and of
course, she was very happy to be home.
Thankful for what a good brother my hubby
has been to her, as of today, he has taken
her to 2 Drs. visit, and took her truck over
to the rehab so they could practice her
getting in and out of the truck, and then
had to go back to pick her up the next
day, so he has been a very busy boy
since last Friday. lol
Thankful that hopefully, once we get her
all settled in this week, our lives can
return to some semblance of normalcy
Not complaining, just saying!
Thankful for a new recipe I sort of
made up that was really so easy and
delicious. Can't wait to have it again.
I will share it with you next week when
I have a chance to write it down,. lol
Thankful for a pot of vegetable soup
I made this week. Figured it would
be an easy way to eat our veggies.
#12 and 13
Thankful for so many answers to prayer
concerning Susan and thankful She got
her new walker today. She was at the
Drs. and guess the neighbor saw them delivering it, so accepted it for her.
We sure appreciated that, so great
to have good neighbors.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week.
Thanks for stopping in
Have a lovely Weekend,
Love, Hugs, and Early October
