Thankful Thursday




Good Afternoon Sweet friends,


Well, I am happy to say I am feeling like my ole self, and we also got the lawn
mowed, and we finished just in the nick of time before the thunderstorms rolled in.
The lawn looks great, so neat, trim, and green!!


I have been sewing this morning with one of the young gals that was here
for Memorial day. She is a sweetie and has a little 2 yr. - and she bought
some fabric that you can make a sundress out of for a child. It is smocked at
the top and has the straight dress part at the bottom, already hemmed, so all you have to
do is run a seam up the back and add straps. She made the straps out of ribbon.
We only put straps on one so far, so she can see how it fits her daughter.


Next week, we will finish and maybe do a few others.
Just in case you might be interested in doing this for your little one, she got the
fabric at good ole Walmart, better know as "Wallie World " to us, at least that's what we call it.

Well, on to thankful Thursday.......................


I am very grateful and Thankful for my sweet Hubby and Honey, Jim.
He is a wonderful man. Easy going, sweet, gentle, loving, happy, easy to please,
hardworking, faithful, honorable, sacrificial, my handiman, my computer man,

My Man!! He is the Best!!

Oh yea, and I forgot to say Brilliant.



He is all these things and more, and I love him too death,
He is the best thing that ever happened to me beside Jesus.
He and I will celebrate 39 years of wedded bliss in November,
course, it has not been all bliss, we have had our ups and downs
just like everyone else, but I would have to say the ups have been far more,
than the downs.



And here he is with my sweet daughter at her Graduation from
Radiology School in December 2008.


Hope you are feeling well and happy today.



Hope you are having more ups than downs,
If not, make sure you look up to the Father
and get your eyes fixed on Him.



Have a simply Wonderful day.



Blessings and Hugs,
Nellie

Have a Resting Sunday!

Happy Sunday Morning to You Sweet Friends, And Happy Spring!! She has finally officially arrived. I decided to try a new meme today,  it is called  "Shadow Shot Sunday". I am going to combine it with my Sunday verse   for  the day  which I haven't done for  awhile.  Thought it would  work great  together. I am linking up to the "Hey Harriet blog" So.....if you want to check out all the other shadow shots,   just click here. The header photo is of my bathroom  window,  very early  in the morning,  just as day is breaking. You will see the sun coming up more and more. I only wish the camera could have captured the way the light was dancing on the window pane, truly a beauty to behold! I took these at different stages as you can probably tell from the amount of light coming in the window, and now onto the valance. It was truly fun and fascinating to watch! Remember.......................... He who dwells in the shelter of th

I had to quite taking it as  I  was  having bad side affects.  So not  taking anything now  and hoping  that I got enough  in me to take  care of the  problem............So far, so good,  but it has only been 2 days off............. Pictures today are from our house this Fall 2020. So on with my Thankfuls...... #1 Thankful for a nice time with our  Son  and Lil darling,  He was sweet to bring dinner for all of us, and then we played some wii and a card game.  A Fun Surprise..... especially
