Thankful for all the good take out food we enjoyed as well.
Thankful for our only fun day out, going
to a fun Vintage/Antique/Handmade store,
which reminds me that store in our area
that I spoke of last week on Thankful
Thursday, called"Adjectives". Just such
a neat and different store and think they
have different vendors as well. Have
to say we enjoyed it but not as much
as normal due to mask wearing...
Thankful we were able to make it
to the annual Bath and Body shop
Summer 75% off sale, as wemade
a haul.....Great to keep on hand as
gifts or just something great for a
random act of kindness gift.
Thankful for most of the day out as
it was a special day out to celebrate
our Daughters birthday topped off
by going to dinner at Longhorns.
We were going to Carrabbas as that
is her fav but we found out their
Carrabbas has gone out of business.
Which was a bummer but dinner
at Longhorns was great too.
We celebrated early since we won't
be seeing her on her birthday.
Thankful that the tropical storm was
just that, as it went by our house in
Florida and as it passed us, up here
in Charleston. We only had slight
wind and rain both places.
Thank You Jesus!
Thankful for watching a lot of
drybar comedy shows at night.
We watched some very funny
and clean comedians. Humor
is a much needed thing for us
in the times we are living in.
A cheerful heart is good medicine,
Proverbs 17:22 NIV
Thankful that we had great
weather the majority of the time,
only bad day, was rain on Monday
as the storm came through. It was
even cool enough to sit outside in
the early evening a few times since
it was so breezy, and that was a
very nice and unexpected surprise.
Thankful for fresh warm donuts
from a place called "The fractured
Prune". They have some delish
donuts.....so that is always some
thing we all look forward to every
since we have discovered them. #13 Thankful for the change of scenery and just being out of our house for awhile...........
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week. This was our Summer Vacation edition. lol Thanks for stopping in..... and hope you have a great weekend.
So....What are you Thankful for this week? Love, Hugs, and First week of August Blessings, Nellie Sharing with: Shabby Art Boutique
and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.
Greetings Sweet Friends,
How are ya?? Doing well, I hope.
We are doing well....praying like crazy for peace in our country, and for people to come to their senses. Imagine and hoping many of you are doing the same.
Pictures today are of our Supper table from this passed weekend. I just wanted to use some yellow.......but I don't have a lot of yellow things but managed to scrape up a few things to use as a center- piece, and the yellow just made my heart happy. Remember I told you a few weeks ago about my infatuation with yellow once again...........
So on with my Thankfuls.............
Thankful for a good Dr. visit with
my husband cardiologist. He still
has to get an echocardiogram in
August, but it's just routine as Dr.
feels he is doing well.
Thankful that we got to go to a
unique store called "Adjectives".
It has a lot of vintage things and
antiques, it's like a blast from
the past. We so enjoy going there
cause it's just so different, and we
only go about once a year since
it is an hour away and near the
Cardiologist office. So always
Thankful that one of our Daughter and Son-in-loves vacationers in their beach cottage left a long and very sweet review, that was just so encouraging to them. They have worked very hard to think of every thing possible that will make their place special and not just for them- selves but great for others as well. This was like a reward for all their hard work and the desire of their hearts. I didn't know it but they have 5 reviews and they are all 5 star reviews. Gratifying!
Thankful we were finally able to
get some food from Taco Bell,
after visiting some other stores.
We have been to the one near us
twice, and the line was so long
and moving so slowly we decided
to go somewhere else. It was
very enjoyable for sure.
Thankful for a fun time with the
family on Saturday, they came
over for dinner and we yakked
and ate and some of us played
the wii.....nice time!

Thankful for Waldorf Salad, that
was part of our dinner, along with
Pork chops and sweet potatoes.
We tend to love fruit salads, and
Waldorf is one of our favorites.
Thankful for my sweet Son's
thoughtfulness. He potted and
brought me some flowering plants
that he had an overflow of.....Not
sure yet where I will put them,
but will figure it out I am sure.
Thankful to hear President Trump
got the prices of diabetes meds
down to a very low price. That
will be very helpful to a lot of
people, especially seniors that
can't afford those high prices.
#9 Thankful that we were very energetic on Monday and got a lot accomplished.
#10 Thankful for a comfy bed to sleep in every night, and for sleeping well most of the time.
#11 Thankful for Trinity Broadcasting network. We find so much spiritual food on TBN, that we are delighted with.
#12 Thankful for a fun surprise last night. I checked facebook and I had an instant message from a lil girl (who is probably in her 50's now) who we used to know over 40 yrs. ago when we lived in South Florida. Don't know how in the world she found us cause she was about 14 or so when we last saw her. What a sweet blast from the past.
When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy. Psalm 94:19 NIV
Greetings Sweet Friends, Hope this finds you well, sane and having a good week. Have to say those things are a bit harder than they used to be.....agreed?? We are so Thankful for God's word..... as it keeps us well, sane and having a good week for sure. Pictures today of lovely Summer Flowers...... compliments of Public Domain photos.......
Thankful that we finally got to take dinner to the parents of some gals that used to be in our bible study years back. Their parents go to our church and of course, we know them just not super well. Their Mom has cancer and is very exhausted. It was great to be able to do something for them and to see them all for a few minutes, as our hearts are really go out to them. #2 Thankful that after we delivered dinner, we went and got a chocolate Elvis smoothie, then went to Michaels crafts and got a few new things for us to do with lil darling, ran to Kirklands, but only had 5 mins. as they close at 7pm. now, Have to say it was good to see a store that looked normal. Then we ran to Sam's and got a few things and they had a huge area with nothing in it, very not normal. Then to dinner at Longhorn's. It was nice to get out of the house for awhile but definitely quite different, while wearing masks, (of course, not while eating) but still thankful for these small pleasures. I keep forgetting how early everything closes now.
#3 Thankful that I happened on a snack treat that we found several years ago in World Market in Charleston but have never been able to find since, and they had it at Sam's so that was the highlight of our trip there. lol It is a lemon/blueberry granola treat and they are delicious. #4 Thankful that my daughter's co-worker and friend had her covid test come back negative.
#5 Thankful for the "Doc" series, as we are rewatching it as it is just such a great show. We found it on Pureflix. #6 Thankful we got our ficus tree repotted this week, as it was very root bound and was show- ing signs of being unhealthy. So hopefully it will do much better now.
#7 Thankful to be back in church this past Sunday. It was very different but still good to be there. We had decided to go out to lunch with our friends, so we decided to give it a try. The church had recommended all those of 65 yrs. and older worship with them on TV which is what we have been doing. It was sure good to see everyone even if you could only see half their face. lol and wave at them or say some- thing from a distance. #8 Thankful we got to go out to lunch with our friends to Cracker Barrel. It has been about 4 mos. We have talked on the phone but that has been almost a month too, as they went to visit there son for awhile. Nice for all of us to catch up.
#9 Thankful that God made our world have color.....imagine our world in just black and white.....it would be pretty dull and boring. #10 Thankful I finally got to wear my beautiful double heart Mother/ Daughter necklace my Daughter got me for Mother's Day this year. It's the first time for me to wear it since we haven't been dressing up to go anywhere. It looked very pretty!
#11 Thankful to see that someone painted "Babies lives matter" in pink and blue in front of an abortion clinic. #12 Thankful that hubby has learned how to make Caramel Frappes like the ones they have at MacDonalds. Loving those babies.....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Well, that's it for cozy place this week............ Glad to see you stopped by and hope you have a good day and weekend. Love, Hugs and Safe Blessings to you and yours, Nellie Sharing with: Bloggers Pit Stop Shabby Art Boutique
I just happened to come across this post I started months ago, and had completely forgotten about.
All the pictures were posted already, so figured I might as well fill in between the pictures and post it.... Maybe the colors will cheer you up..... they do me. Our bedroom is still like this as we just finished this refresh
back in September of 2019. Just now saw the date on it....wow....didn't realize it had been that long.
Our color choices came from our Quilt, which you will see below.
This is the top of our armoire.
This yellow on our walls looks a lot darker than it really is.
Showed you this along time ago when we first got it. It holds all of lil darlings toys and goodies.
I redid the wall, and the top of it.
I made printables and put them on
wooden clip boards I got at the
Just in case you are interested, you
can find lots of free printables at
Here is a side wall
Our bed...... Still trying to decide if I should just paint the piece that is above the bed or just get something entirely different.
I absolutely love the colors in our quilt, and know it might look like a teenagers bed but I just loved it..... the colors and the pattern. Found it in the "At Home" Store
