Winter Greetings Sweet Friends. How are things going at your house?? They are going over here....lol In fact, my Christmas stuff has gone and my Winter decorating is still coming along........getting closer to being finished all the time. I am so ready for it to be done. As I have other fish to fry....lol
Todays pictures are from another Winter Past......hopefully next week you will be able to see some from this Winter....lol
So on with my thankful list...........
So thankful that my daughters cat
scan came back with no abnormalities.
Praise God..... from whom all
blessings flow.......She is also feel- ing better, we now think it was a pulled muscle under her ribcage.
Thankful we got both of our cars serviced this week, and a dangerous airbag recall notice taken care of, another relief for this week!

#3, 4 and 5 Thankful that we were able to go out shopping afterwards and to dinner. Thankful we also found a cool new store, that has vintage and antiques, and all sorts of cool pieces like Joanna Gaines uses while decorating, and they have all sorts of different vendors. What a fun store.....haven't seen any stores like this in years, so what a fun discovery. Thankful too that we rediscovered a restaurant we tried before but weren't too impressed with some yrs. back, so never went there again. They were packed out on Sat.night but we both really enjoyed it very much, and they are much more reasonably priced and have such a nice atmosphere and the service was good too. They are called Cheddar's........
Decided to change it up, since it didn't show up all that well. #6 Thankful for the "Planet Earth" video Series, they are just so interesting and educational, and sometimes downright funny. We were watching Planet Earth part 2, Season 1 and episode 2, and they had grizzly bears that just came out of hibernation scratching their backs on trees and then later a huge flock of flamingos, marching together and looked like an animated Disney show, but was for real. So funny and cute........... We get it thru netflix in case you are interested.............
The snow scene came from the back cover of a Winter cottage magazine some years back and I stuck the lil sign on it. #7 Thankful I got all my laundry done before the next cold wave. #8 Thankful for the blessing
of hearing lil darling singing "This is the day that the Lord has made" on Wednesday.
#9 Thankful to have had contact thru email with a childhood friend this week, and for her sharing some encouraging thoughts with me. #10 Thankful to have all the Christmas stuff down and packed away for another year.
#11 Thankful to have the family room and everything but the table redone, in the dining room, due to it holding all the stuff I am using to redecorate. In process with the foyer and living room now..........
#12 Thankful for Heaven and that we know what a marvelous and Wonderful place it will be where there will be no more sorrow or tears, and no more worries or problems, and just a pefect and Joyful, peaceful place..... just the thought of it is so encouraging!! Not that I am ready to go yet, but readier than I used to be.....lol The longer we live and the more people we lose to Heaven and the trials and tribulations of this world, I believe God uses to make us more and more ready for Heaven.
Well, there you have it folks another week at Cozy Place. Thanks for coming by Today, Have a Wonderful Weekend,
You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. Isaiah 26:3
Greetings Sweet Friends, All I can say is BRRRRR! It is cold out there..... hope you are keeping toasty warm and cozy..... No snow for us tho..... so we have to fake it here in Florida, which explains my winter's past photos this week......
We have had a lot of stressful things going on these last few weeks, but God has been good in the midst of it all.............as you will read.....
#1 and 2
Thankful for a fun day out on Monday
since hubby was off. We went looking
for a new dresser and night stands in
White, but didn't find anything we
liked or that the drawers were made
well...which is the problem we are
having with our dresser we have
But thankful however, we did visit
a Lazy Boy store which did not have
any bedroom furniture but we did find
out that they had reclining sofasthat
were electric and mechanical, which is
what we have now and love, but it is
getting old and we have not seen any-
thing we like to replace it with, so we
were considering just having it
recovered, but the Lazy Boy sales
person said you can have just about
any sofa or chair in the store made
with just about any fabric you would
like....which was music to my ears,
cause most of the reclining sofas are
leather or leather look, and it just
doesn't go with the cozy look that
we like, so that was good info to
tuck away for future use.
Thankful for our fireplace.....as we
have been having lots of fires at night
lately, and they are so nice and cozy.
#4 and 5
Thankful that my daughter had a cat
scan Thursday and that everything went well and hopefully will get the
results tomorrow, and thankful
that her new Dr. took her seriously
and sent her right away to have it
done.......now just waiting to hear the results........and praying they are good.......
Thankful for a new ethnic restaurant
that we tried that we had heard about
and that is close by....they make
fabulous Puerto Rican food. They
make a shredded beef dish which
is like a cuban dish I make, called
Ropa Veija, and it tastes as good
as mine.............yum....gonna get
#7, 8 and 9
Thankful that we are close to finally
having my Mom's estate settled, as it
has been a longggg time in coming.
thankful that things got dispersed to
those I wanted it to.......
thankful we are in the process of getting a new realtor, which is a very good thing....so the empty house can now be sold......
Thankful for some really sweet and special to me blessings from the Lord this week.... I call them mini miracles....and I would tell you about them but it is just too long a story....but they have to do with receiving some of my Mom's jewelry last Saturday. My Mom has been in heaven for over 12 yrs. now.
Thankful for facebook, as it helped me
find out that some dear friends of 48
yrs, lost their daughter a few months
ago.....and we were able connect with them. So heartbreaking as she was a sweet and beautiful young lady........ and her parents are just wonderful people.....the Good news is they are people of faith and know that their daughter is with Jesus.
#12 Thankful that I have finally gotten all the Christmas things down and packed away. yay!!
With colored pencil affect.
Another week at Cozy Place........... Glad you dropped by....
Happy Tuesday to you! Hope you are keeping warm......
We are have been having some more cold days here again..... but think it might be starting to warm up some as it is going to 67 today and it is beautiful out, sun shining and clearazure blue skies.......course it was like that yesterday and it was in the mid 50's..... Still working on getting our Christmas stuff down and put away. Tree is gone and most of it down, then comes the not so funpart - of packing it away. lol
Hoping to accomplish all of that today............will see???

Good Sunday Afternoon to You, Hope you are having a great day! I happened on this quote, that I wrote in the back of my bible many years back. I heard it in a sermon from our Pastor at that time. I believe it is truth............
“Watch your thoughts, they become words;
watch your words, they become actions;
watch your actions, they become habits;
watch your habits, they become character;
watch your character,
for it becomes your destiny.”
