Thankful Thursday - July 19, 2012

Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,  for I will yet praise him,
My Savior and My God.
Psalm 42:11

Good Evening  Morning
Sweet Peas,
(Started this yesterday......)
Hope you have a had a very good week!

Mine has been good and seems to have just flown by......
Really can't believe it is Thursday again already,  
where does the time go!!

Today was a very nice day, so.......
# 1
I am thankful
is....for a really fun day with a new friend.  
We have been trying to get together for several 
months now and finally connected, so it was a sweet she is a lovely person,
and we have a lot in common.

Thought I would use some of my pics of other coastal touches
 that I added to my family room,that aren't table tops, 
tablescapes or centerpieces!  lol 

Always like to add some pictures cause I know how I like them,
 and know yall do too!

I am thankful
that my computer is back up and has been running 
well and a bit faster too, 
and it didn't cost us a cent.  Yeah for that!!

I am thankful
that we got to visit with Dee and Jerry
last Friday nite.  We always have a 
great time.

I am thankful
that we had another fun date night.  Hubby had
to go for a routine echocardiogram first, but then
We went to a lot of places for things we needed
and then out to dinner,  but it was a fun time.

I am thankful
that our Dee is now a liscensed Mammography
technician. Which means an increase in pay
as well...........

(they put tags on everything else so I thought why not on
 pillows too! lol)

I am thankful
that I have been sleeping really well in the
last few weeks.  what a blessing that is.

I am thankful
that the Lord gave me an easy solution to a
lil problem that I had..........


I am thankful
that my scales are finally going starting
to go down.  I have picked up on my protein
and dairy and also eating breakfast earlier,  so 
one or all of those must be helping! 
 Thank the Lord!!

I am thankful
for Blue Bunny frozen Vanilla yogurt,  we get it
at Walmart and it is the best Vanilla yogurt there is!
We use it in our smoothies, and put bananas and
caramel or chocolate on it,  or even just eat it plain,
which I never do with any other ice cream or yogurt.
It is good stuff..................
Last night I crumbled some homemade gluten-free 
peanut butter cookies on top since we were
out of bananas.  Yummy!!


I am thankful
that I made Brocoli, Ham and cheese quiche for lunch,
and can now have it for din din as well,  along with
leftover mac and cheese, and a fruit salad.

I am thankful
for 2 christian songs I have learned about that are new 
to me, in this last week that are just so encouraging.  
One is "I'm not home yet", by Building 429.  It is a
contemporary Christian song.

and the other one is "I Know"
by the Collingsworth Family
Learned about this one from my friend today!
It is a southern gospel song.

Hope you enjoy them too!

I am thankful
for all of my friends and family that are not from blog
land and then all my sweet friends I have made in
blogland.  I have learned a ton of things from all of
you,  and have benefited from your prayers, wisdom
and kind words of encouragement.
Yall are the best!!
and I pray the Lord double blesses yall back!! lol

(Underneath that shell is a basket of kittens) lol

Well, guess I better hurry up and get this posted,
since I am a day late and a dollar short! lol
Better late than never as they say.
Was just too tired to finish last night!!

Yall have a really Fun Weekend
Thanks for coming by......

Excited to hear from you!

Love, Hugs, and Good Food, 
 Family and Friends
