invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
1 Timothy 1:17 NIV
Greetings Sweet Friends,
Hope you have been having a good week....ours has been pretty good. My foot is somewhat better, still on the mend and kind of off again, on again type of thing, so praying it will be gone all together soon.
Pictures today are from our re-- freshed living room. Decided to do it with a Coastal flair this summer, but just haven't had time to take and edit pictures, so will show you the ones I have taken.
Thankful for another Memorial Service
that we attended for a sweet lady who
attends our church. It was just the
sweetest service. All 3 of her grand-
sons spoke, and it was just so sweet
and precious all the things they had
to say about their Memaw. Really a
great reminder about the importance
of being an involved Grandparent and the great influence we can have if we choose to....
Thankful for lunch out with hubby
afterward at Perkins. We have not
been there in quite awhile because
they had changed their menu and
there wasn't a lot on there we liked
anymore.....but we saw that they
have changed it again and saw
they brought back some of our
Thankful as always for a nice
long chat with our girl.
Thankful for Sweet Potato Puffs,
made by Alexia. They are in the
frozen food department with the
frozen fries and tots. They are
really delicious....and I could
easily eat these as a dessert
especially if you dipped them
in a lil honey. lol
Thankful for being surprised
by my nephew and 2 of his girls.
They wound up coming to church
yesterday but they weren't suppose
to be there.....so that was quite a
nice surprise. Just in case you
didn't know they just moved back
here from Mo. and we hadn't
seen them yet.
Thankful that my nephew and
the whole family came over for
pizza and salad on Sunday even-
ing. It was so great to see them
all and get to spend some time
with them. We really had a lot
of fun. They have 3 sweet and
beautiful girls, 2 (twins) that are
12 yrs. old and one that is 15,
and of course, the move is very
sad for them as they have lived
in the same place for their whole
lives, so it was good to have fun
with them and see them smiling
when they left.
#7 Thankful for the frozen fruit we have been buying at the grocery store and making smoothies with....they are delicious and have that same consistency that they have when you buy them, and they make for a quick, refreshing and delicious treat #8
Thankful for a beautiful pinterest board that came in my email box that had all my fav shades of blue in the robins egg blue family. Just made my day it was so pretty.
#9 Thankful that our contractor finally showed up to work on our shed. It has been 8 weeks, so we were beginning to wonder. He has been having a lot of prob- lems, some family, some physical, and of course, we are in a rainy season here as well. Just glad to know he still plans to finish, and it is a lil bit further along, but still have a ways to go, but some progress at least.
#10 Thankful for the dealership where we take our Van to be serviced, and the honesty of the people who work there. While they were rotat- ing our tires they found a nail in one of our tires and fixed it.... and it was at no charge to us as we bought our tires from them, but I realize they did not have to tell us there was a nail in the tire or fix it, cause we were having no problems....but sadly, there are some places that would have just rotated the tires and said nothing since it was gonna take their time and make no money on the deal....so cuddos to Winter Park Toyota Service Department.
With colored pencil affect #11 Thankful for a fun time after getting the car serviced. We went to Christmas Tree store, which was fun since we haven't been there in a long time. Then to Home Goods and to dinner at Cheddar's. Fun night out. #12 Thankful for God's beautiful Sea shells, they are just so beautiful and screams summer to me..........
Well, here's another week at Cozy Place Thanks for dropping in.... Hope you have a lovely summer weekend. Love, Hugs and Mid July Blessings, Nellie Sharing with: My flagstaff Home

Greetings Sweet Friends, Hope this finds you well and happy. We are happy but I have been hav- ing some problems with my foot, think it is plantar fasciitis. So we got some Dr. Scholls insoles that are made for that and they have arch supports, so been wearing those the last few days with tennis shoes, and I have gotten quite a bit of relief so hopefully doing this for a few days will cure the problem. So thankful for these wonderful insoles for sure. Pictures today are of our 4th of July table this year. This was another do with what I had table. So searched the house for things that were red, white and blue, and below pics are the results.
Thankful for this song hubby and I just happened on and is our new favorite song. Make sure to listen to the whole song....it's so true but also is sort of humorous as well.
Thankful for the beautiful skies
the Lord paints for us every day
all day long.
Thankful for a fun time out with
our friends at Cracker Barrel on
Thankful for a new kitchen rug
that I have been looking for well
over a year now. Bought several
but they all turned out to be the
wrong shade of blue, and just did
not look right. This one is perfect!
Found it on sale on the Kirklands
website, and it showed they had
it in the store, so just decided to
go see it in person, and wound up
finding one we liked even better.
Thankful that I am getting a lil
done on our bedroom refresh
most days. Liking it so far.....
It is coming along slow but
Thankful my son and his family
got back from my daughters
safe and sound, and that they
all had a great time as usual.
Thankful that my nephew and
his family got here on Sunday
evening, they have moved back
here permanently (Lord Willing)
We haven't seen them yet and
it will probably be awhile as
they have parents and siblings
to see along with getting settled
in....but looking forward to
seeing them sometime soon.
Thankful for our new turtle
friend who has been visiting
our backyard rather frequently
lately. He seems to really be
enjoying the berries that are
falling off one of our trees,
and the shade. I have never
seen one eat before, and he
is like a billy goat, he eats
just about anything small
that gets in his way. Sticks,
grass, weeds and berries.
#12 Thankful to see lil darling after 2 whole weeks. We missed her presence for sure, and we were delighted to see her, as she always puts a smile on our face. We just love her so much...and I am sure most of you Grandparents out there know exactly what I mean.
Well, there you have it folks, hope you all had a great 4th of July! Thanks for stopping by for a visit. and Have a Great Weekend!!
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land 2 Chronicles 7:14 Happy Independence Day
Sweet Friends, and welcome to Thankful Thursday. Hope you all have a Wonderful time celebrating with family, friends/ and or furry friends. This is indeed the Patriotic holiday to celebrate with abandon. We should all be ever so thankful to God, and our founding Father's for the freedoms it has afforded us, our family and friends and our dearly loved United States of America.
(And just in case someone might think I live under a rock, No, I do hear all the naysayers, but think about it....if they really thought our country was so bad they would be moving to these Utopias ,they all profess to being so wonderful)
Just decided to add a few pics of 4th of July tables past.....
Thankful for making Rice Crispy
treats with Lil darling last Thursday,
think she liked doing it, but didn't
like eating them. For some reason,
She thinks the ones you buy don't
have marshmallows in them. lol
Anyway, it was fun for me, cause
I haven't made them since my
kids left home, I think!! and I
loved them!! and shared some
with the kids next door too.
Thankful for a good day at church
and a fun time out to lunch at
Cracker Barrel with our friends.
Thankful to see a number of old
members of our church on Sun.
evening. They are at now at our
satellite church in another close
by city typically, but came for the
annual business meeting. It was
so good to see them all, but it
was especially good to see our
co-workers that we used to do
the young marrieds class with.
We have really missed them.
Thankful that our bartering deal
from the sale of our car has finally
kicked in.....I now having some-
one cleaning our home once a month,
and she is amazing and does a great
job. Cleans just like I do. Have to
say it feels very strange to me, cause
I have been cleaning my own home
for almost 50 years, and my home of
origin before that.... but think I can
get used to it very quickly........and
it frees us up to work on our business
What a blessing for both of us.
Thankful that we our now 50%
closer to opening our online
Thankful for what an encourage-
ment and cheerleader our daughter
is about our upcoming card business.
She had me do some cards recently
for her hubby's Mom and Dad.
Which was really sweet and supportive.
That hubby learned a new skill
on photoshop this week which
will come in handy with making
graphics in the future.
Thankful that I finally got around
to doing a 3rd post for this week.
It's been awhile....had the pics
just had no time to edit and post
them. #9 Thankful for a fun night out shopping for things we needed to get, but also for some really fun unexpected finds. I have been looking for a new light for our foyer for well over a year now, in fact, I finally gave up the hunt in 2018, because everything I found that I liked would not work. We needed a flush mount and everything I liked was not that!! Any who we had to go to Home Depot last night for lawn mower stuff, so just decided to peruse the lighting department and lo and behold we found a light we liked that was flush mount and very similar only smaller to the first light I loved but that wouldn't work. It is like a drum shade with LED lights inside. Looks great!! We really like it so much. Then I found some clipboards at the dollar tree and have been trying to figure out what to do with this one wall in my bedroom since I am refreshing in there, so they fit the bill for that.....will put printables on them and hang them on the wall. Also went in Bath and Body and made a haul with great prices. Love to keep that on hand, cause it really comes in handy for gifts or just some times you feel like someone is down and might need some one to give them a love gift. All the lil unexpected finds really made for a fun night too.
#10 Thankful that Scott, Megan and Brooklyn made it safely to my daughter's house in Charleston for the 4th of July. #11 Thankful again that hubby is so handy and knows how to put our light fixture up or we would have had to pay someone to do it, and also have to wait for them to come #12 Thankful that we get to celebrate the 4th of July and the freedom for which it represents to our wonderful country.
Well, there you have it......... another week at Cozy Place. Thanks for stopping by and Have a Great 4th of July Love, Hugs and Patriotic Blessings to you, Nellie Sharing with: Shabby Art Boutique
