Thankful Thursday March 10, 2016, Whimsical King and Princess Table #2 w/ photo affects

The LORD is my strength and
my defense;he has become my salvation.  
He is my God, and I will Praise him,
my father's God, and I will exalt him.
Exodus 15:2

Greetings Sweet Friends,

Gosh, can't believe we are
headed into another weekend
already..........where does the
time go???

Hope it has been a good week
for you,  it has been for us.

Showing you some more pics
from Tuesday's post, but most
of them have Photoshop affects
this time just for the fun of it.

It has been sunny and 80 degrees
here most of the week,  I am con-
cerned we are gonna have an early
 summer......not to keen about that 
I have to say, but we are loving the
 sunshine, but think we are gonna
 start having some rain on Sunday, 
 so am sure hoping that will mean 
cooler day time temps again!!

Well, on with Thankful Thursday!

I am thankful....

with posterized affect

# 1
that when I dropped a full glass on
sunday morning that it was plastic
and not glass and that it was only
water not something sticky like
coke or lemonaide.  At least it 
made clean up easier especially
 because I was half asleep!  lol

that the mattress place refunded our 
money quite promptly tho it didn't seem
 like it at first, and we were wondering, 
 but the problem was a technicality at
 American it has been
 taken care of now, so and we can
 move on with our bedding search.

With soft omni affect

that the Mattress Co. also had a very
good attitude about the whole situation
as well......cause sometimes that is not
always the case..........

with cutout affect

for a really fun time celebrating
hubby and lil darlings birthday
on Sunday with the family. We
 all enjoyed it.....Made lil darling
her fav....pumpkin pie, but after 
a few bites of  Grampy's favorite
 "Banana Pudding" , she decided
she liked Grampy's fav the best!
lol, can't say I blame her.......

that my daughter had such a
good time with 3 of her friends
that came to visit her this past
weekend, one of them, her old
room mate got to come at the
last minute and surprised her,
and she was delighted.  Her
hubby was such a good sport
about it all too, so that makes
it nice as well.............

with lens flare affect

for the wonderful fragrance of
fresh strawberries we got.....
they seriously smell divine!!
I could sit and sniff them all
day long they smell so good.

for "Bear Naked" - Maple-icious
Pecan Granola.  Truthfully, I am
 not a huge granola fan, but this
 granola tastes awesome, probably
the reason we are having trouble
 finding it lately.  lol  We eat it on
 "Oikos, Toasted coconut vanilla
 greek yogurt and it makes
for a quick, easy, nutritious and
 delicious breakfast or snack.

photocopy affect

for the fun of making a bird's
nest with sycamore ball... bird 
eggs Yesterday with lil darling,
she just loved it!  We saved it
 on the driveway so her Mommy
 could see it. Reminded me of
sweet times with my son when
he was little.

Equalized & lens flare affect

to get to watch my son playing 
with lil darling the way he does. 
He found out we had one of his
 old toys, a discovery toy, marble
 racetrack, so we got it out and he
 put it together for her, and they had 
such a fun time while here for her
 and Grampy's birthday celebration
I adore watching Dad's having a
great time with their kiddles...
especially this Dad!!  lol

Pinch and Twirl Affect, I call
 it the Alice in Wonderland

that my daughter finally had the
courage to tell a good friend (not
one that was visiting - lol) some
things she really needed to hear.
Very hard for Dee, but in the end
I think, hopefully,  it is gonna be
 a gift to her friend once she has
 some time to think about it.

Paint daubs affect

that we have been exercising
every Thursday for awhile now,
it just makes you feel so much
better.....but we need to bump
it up another day, then another.
At least we are working on it.
So that is progress!

for a really fun new song I  
recently discovered on an ecard,
but I had only heard part of it, 
 then this week we were watching
"TheVoice" TV show, as Traci's
 son, Jonathan from over at "Beneath
 my heart blog" is going to be a con-
testant, and the first contestant on
Monday night sang, the song, it
is called "Happy",  anyway, it was
Pharell Williams song,  and I didn't
know who Pharell was until Mon.
night, and was so surprised he was
a coach on "The Voice".
Anyway, lil darling and I love
the song it is very fun and catchy
and makes us smile every time,
hard to get the song out of your
head too!!


Well, here's to another week at
