It is good to give Thanks to the Lord.
Hello Sweet Peas,
Can't believe it is Thursday again
already! Hope you are ready for
Hope your day has been good so far,
Ours has been good, constructive and fun!!
Guess I will get started
we had a fun visit from the animal kingdom
first thing this morning. We heard him first
and then saw him out the window....he was
all by his lonesome, so I went outside with
camera in hand, of course, to see if he would
notice me............and notice me he did!!
As soon as he saw me he started coming
across the street, but I still wasn't sure
if it was me or he just decided to change
Now he is at the edge of our property
he is coming closer ............
Here he is eating bread, when I came outside
hubby went to get bread..............
Don't you just love the bird with the skinny legs!!
Here he is chowing down still.
In case you didn't see my last post on this
lovely species of bird way back months
ago. He is called a Sandhill Crane,
and they can really make a loud noise.
Think he sorta looks like a flamingo here.
Just the wrong color. He is leaving us now,
he is being a fair weather friend, gets his belly
full and he is outta here!! lol
So long............for Now!!
once he crossed the street, he flew away. That's the first
time I have ever seen one fly. I heard they do, but just
never gotten to actually see it. Was wishing I still had
the camera. Poo!!
I truly love when the Lord sends these lil joys our way!!
Such a fun blessings
is for my hairdresser that keep me
looking good!! That would be my sweet
and beautiful daughter. She has been good
with hair since she was a lil girl. She used
to fix her hair for school when she was in
kindergarten and people would say I like
how your Mom did your hair and she would
say she did it, and they never believed her. lol
She is coming to do my hair tonight!! Yeah!!
is that Scott got his Company vehicle
this week, a nice burgundy jeep cherokee.
He needed something with 4 wheel drive
since he has to go out into fields and muddy
areas at times. Would hate to see him
get stuck somewhere!! lol
He is also really enjoying his new job!!
is that we got the cedar on our house oiled
today.....finally!! The cedar can get so dried
out. Hubby sprayed about 3 coats of oil on and
the wood just sucked it up!! Amazing.... looks
like a fresh new paint job.
is that we can do our walking outside in the
wonderful weather again. It is a nice break
from our regular routine. Also, thankful to
be out there working in the yard again too.
is for food and water, and not just food and
water, nutrious food and clean sanitary water.
Our food could be gruel or some something
just to get food into us, and taste horrible,
and there are many in this world that do not
have nutrious food, let alone good tasting
food, or clean water to drink.
We are most blessed folks!!
is that these beautiful flowers are blooming
They are just wildflowers that Scott brought
us from Gainesville years ago, don't even
know what they are called, but hubby and I
both look forward to seeing them blooming
They truly are just such a delight to us!!
Think it is cause they are just sort of free and wild
and some are short, and some grow way tall,
they have minds all their own, but probably
has something to do with being a reminder
of our sweet son as well!!
is I am happy I have Beef Stew and Chili
leftover, so all I need to make is a salad
for din din!! and then we can have our
pick Chil or Beef Stew or a Taco salad
with Chili on top!! Works for me!!
is for my digital camera. I just love this lil
jewel, and I have to say I take way more
pics than I used to, and my photography is
getting better most of the time. Some times
I really get some great shots, some time not,
but I am thankful for the great ones I do get!!
Like this beautiful bougainvilla in my backyard,
that is blooming away too!!
is that we are all free to own a Bible, and
go to church freely with no fear of
repurcusssions, no so, in most of the
Most of us have multiple bibles in our
homes, and some of us don't take
advantage of this freedom to worship
in a church building, there may come a
time when we will not have these freedoms.
Certainly a blessing that we rarely think about!!
is for good neighbors. We may not get to
see or talk with them all the time, but we
know they are there and they know we
are here, if we ever need each other.
That is a very good feeling!!
is for law enforcement officers, firemen,
and paramedics. What a wonderful service
they provide to the community, and it is
amazing that these men and women put
their lives on the line every single day.
and speaking of that makes me think of
know I must have
for our Servicemen and Women who are
serving all around the world. Sacrificing their
lives to protect us and our families.
We need to always remember to pray for
their safety and also for their precious
families who are sacrificing at home as well.
May God Bless Everyone of them!!
(These were from last year)
Well, Sweet Folks,
Hope you have a Top Notch Thursday
and a Fantabulous Friday!!
Love, Blessings, and Warm Cozy Hugs,
