Hope you all have a nice Memorial Day weekend. Our's was quiet, but good. Been a good week here, not a lot going on really. Didn't get to see lil darling this week but will get to see here this weekend, as well as her parents. Pictures today are from another Spring's past. Gotta find some time to edit and take more photos. lol
On with my Thankfuls........
Thankful that hear our friends are
going to be able to visit their son in
Calif. next month. They rarely get
to see him or their granddaughters,
so very happy for them.
Thankful for my cold pack that
helps when I have inflammation
in my neck or anywhere for that matter, a lil life saver!!
Thankful the Lord helped me find my camera. I thought I had possibly left it at my daughters house because I couldn't find it, so she checked around and couldn't find it there either. So as I often do when I can't find things I ask the Lord where they are? and he never fails to show me, sometimes it might take a lil while or a day or so, this time it was less than 24 hrs. Very happy about finding it!! It had the pics on it your are seeing in this post. lol
#4 Thankful that my son-in-love hope- fully will get the day off on Memorial Day, as the fellow he has been filling in for all month, said he would work since he has been off all month, as he will be starting back June 1st anyway. He could use the break for sure, course things should be back to normal in June. Note: That changed unfortunately but he did wind up getting off early so they had most of the day together at least.
#5 Thankful my daughter is feeling good about her new job. While her old job was on shut down do to the covid situation, a new job sort of dropped in her lap, altho she was not looking for a new job, she was quite happy where she was, but since she didn't know when or if she would get her old job back, and this job had a number of things that were better for her as well, so it seemed like it was heaven sent. #6 Thankful for rain....we have been in need of it here for awhile. So have had about 3 days of rain, which is great. Our yard and plants look quite happy and very green...............
Excellent Book, by the way! #7 Thankful to be an American and to be able to live in the best country there is.... No matter how many problems we have there is still no better place to live, as far as I am concerned. #8 Thankful for all the Men and Women who have fought and died for the free- doms I enjoy and can so easily take for granted. That's why it is good to have Holidays like Memorial Day, to remind us! Land of the Free Home of the Brave
#9 Thankful for our big outing this week, wait for it......to Public grocery store and the dollar tree.............lol At least it got us out of the house!! It was a lil better...guess I am getting more used to seeing and being in a mask. Also it was cooler which helped too....cause of the rain! #10 Thankful for a quiet Memorial Day....we were gonna have the family over but it wasn't good for them and it turned out we were really tired anyway, so didn't feel like cooking and all that anyway, so we got subs and chips and dessert and we were happy campers.
#11 Thankful for being able to work in the yard for about 3 hrs. today, Wednesday. Started on our back- yard today, so happy about that. #12 Thankful to hear from my cousin who lives in Virginia. Always nice to hear from him.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week. This is the Coming out of quarantine from Covid 19 - Phase 2, Edition. Thanks for your visit, and have a lovely lovely weekend. Think ours is going to include some rain..... Not Complaining, Just saying cause we have actually need the rain, and it does cool things off a bit.

Greetings Sweet Friends, How are ya? Are you venturing out some these days? We have a lil bit.....but not feeling totally confident in that yet....hard to feel that .....when you see so many in masks, and aren't sure if you should or should not be wearing them......lol. We wear them if we are up close to folks especially when you are paying at the register, or if there is a cluster of people. I honestly think my hands have aged 10 years from all this handwashing not complaining, just saying...lol Anyone else feel like that??? Pictures today are from another Springs past. So on with my Thankfuls..............
I am thankful all the unpacking
is done, and that we got grocery
items in and are getting back to
normal after our trip.
I am thankful for a new quote
I saw while I was away, and
made a printable of.....
Accept what is.....
Let go of what was.....
Look for the blessings of God
that are to come.
Isn't that good advice??
Don't think the wording is
exact, but it is the gist of
what I read.
I am thankful for a particularly sweet and thoughtful gift from my daughter for Mother's Day. Course, they all were but this one was a framed picture of of my Dad and Grandparents
restaurant, that looked just like it did when I was a child. Made me cry when I opened it.......... and we ladies know anything cry worthy is very Special. lol
I am thankful that I got 4 new cards done for our shop this week.
Thankful all our plants survived
while we were gone because we
didn't get any rain and we were
gone 9 days. We did soak them
good before we left, but still
amazing as it has been so hot.
Thankful we were able to get most of the mulch we needed and to finish our flower bed in the front yard. Need a few more bags and went to Walmart but they don't have any mulch now. So praying Lowe's or Home Depot still has some. lol
#7 Thankful to get our of the house for a lil while, just made a quick trip to get a smoothie and go to Wally world, Publix and pick up take out from Texas Roadhouse. This shopping with a mask thing is just no fun, I have to say, but it was good to get out for a change and to get the things we needed. #8 Thankful we got to see lil darling today. It has been about 21/2 wks. since we've seen her, which is a long time for us. So we had a nice day. Also got to see our Son for a short time as he dropped her off, and then got to see our daughter- in-love when she picked her up. So nice to see them all....
#9 Thankful that we are reading the Psalms during this time, as they have been very com- forting during this time of the covid saga. #10 Thankful for a very precious and encouraging email from our daughter today. So sweet and thoughtful.
#11 Thankful that a friend got to go visit her daughter again, who just found out a month ago she is expecting. This is her 2nd trip up there in about a month. She lives 8 or so hours away, and of course, she is experiencing morning sickness and tiredness typical to the 1st trimester. #12 Thankful that Walmart finally had our bacon that we love. We haven't been able to get it for over a month as they have been out of it, and it is a more heart healthy bacon that has no nitrites or nitrates and it tastes so good, and is double the price when or if you can find it any where else. So we totally enjoyed it.....
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week. This is Edition #3 of coming out of the Covid 19 virus pandemic. Thanks for stopping in...... and have a great weekend. Just realized yesterday that it is Memorial Day weekend, it sort of sneaked up on us. So have a Remembering and safe Memorial Day.

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. Psalm 16:7 NIV
Greetings Sweet Friends, Hope this finds you all doing well with your covid percentages going down down and down! Our's have been pretty low for awhile now, but do go up and down but still in a very low range, thank goodness. I am later than usual with my Thankful post and you will read why in the post. Pictures today are from Spring's past. #1 Thankful that we decided to go to SC to visit our daughter and son-in-love. Since we have been quarantined and so had she, and none of us have been sick or running fevers, and her county and our county both had very low covid
percentages, so we felt it would be okay as long as we stayed in mostly, and did the social distancing with others.
Thankful for a safe trip to SC and back.
#3 Thankful to see them since it has been since January. We had planned to go for my birthday the end of March, but we of course, where in the thick of the covid thing then, so decided maybe it would work for Mother's Day. #4 Thankful for a lovely Mother's day, and thankful we could go while she was off the entire time, made it really nice.
#5 Thankful that we got to go see their beach house, as we didn't get to see the back and front yard as it wasn't completed back in January. Looks awesome. We all wanted to go in the hot tub but it was too cool and breezy, then we found out we could n't anyway, because someone had turned something off. So maybe next time. #6 Thankful that Folly Beach has opened up and they are able to rent their beach house again. They were only able to rent it twice in March and then the beach shut down, but they are pretty much booked up till September now.
#7 Thankful that I did not seriously hurt my foot as I took a spill but was able to soak my foot in the pool for about a half hour and the bruising and pain completely went away. #8 Thankful for the weather....we had the most gorgeous wonderful and perfect weather while we were there. So we got to hang outside a lot and drink in the sun and fresh air. Lovely!
#9 Thankful for good times, yakking, drinking coffee and smoothies, playing skipbo, rummy and yatzee. Playing with Bentley (our grandson dog, He is a golden doodle and so cute and not as rambunctious as the last time we saw him...he is coming out of his puppy stage now) a lil TV watching, cooking together, golf cart rides around the neighbor- hood, and hanging out in the pool the last part of the week, when it was warmer, and lots of take out food, and special yummy donuts from a place called the Fractured Prune.
#10 Thankful we got to stay 9 days this time usually it's about 6 days but our Son-in-love is working so much due to one of his co-workers just having twins so is out of work until June.....which has meant double duty for our SIL, so she was enjoy- ing the company....and she goes back to work next week, so will be more occupied then.
#11 Thankful we were able to get out to get something for Mother's day for my Daughter-in-love. Kohl's was open and didn't have many people in the store. Some had masks, others didn't. We used ours when we checked out. We weren't there long....very strange feeling in the stores, not sure if you should be touch- ing things or what....lol We were thinking about the slogan our grocery store has "Publix where shopping is a pleasure" and Dee was saying where shopping isn't a pleasure anymore.......lol We were thinking about going in Home Goods but there was a line outside, so we decided to go to Marshalls as there was no line, but didn't stay there very long either. Strange new world we have going on, but makes you realize how much you can do without.... #12 Thankful to have had a nice restful vacation, but also happy to be back home in our own bed once again. Everything was good here at home, and the house had a lovely aroma when we walked in because I forgot to unplug my fragrance thingie in the bathroom. So that was a nice greeting!! We just got in on last night...... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week. This is the coming out of Covid-19 Edition #2. Thanks for the visit, always happy when you come by, Have a Great Weekend, and
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth. Psalm 57:11 NIV Greetings Sweet Friends, Is anyone else singing the Hallelujah chorus because they are off lockdown?? Have to say I am.....mainly because are covid numbers are pretty low as well....so hopefully a good sign that it is starting to go away and hopefully for good!!
Not a lot going on here today, we have been in the 90's the last 3 days, so it feels like summer is upon us here in Florida, even tho it is still Spring. But thankful for the hot weather be- cause most of the time virus's don't like the heat and humidity. So Covid Covid go away, and do not come another day......
Today's Pic are from Springs passed at our house. Sorry just have not had time to take any new pictures. Maybe soon.........
Now on with my Thankfuls.............
Thankful for a sweet comment
my son put on facebook about
a record we used to play when
he was little, called "Bullfrogs and Butterflies". Anyone else remember that??
Thankful for one kind and brave
blogger who came by and let me
know I had left an "S" off my
Mother's Day card last week,
so we were able to fix it.
Thankful for a fun sleepover
with Lil darling on Friday evening and Sat. morning. Had a great time as always.
Thankful for a restful and Peaceful Sunday.....for some reason I was just so tired, but felt better by Monday due to all the rest and a good nap. It really wasn't do to having lil darling either, I was al- ready feeling that before she got here, but it just got worse. I think I just get busy doing things and overdue it at times and it catches up with me.
#5 Thankful that I was finally able to get my bloodwork done from my annual physical the end of February. I had to wait to get off antibiotics and by the time that happened everything shut down, so very happy to have that all done, and off my plates. Still have to get a DEXA scan and a mammogram that was supposed to be done in March but got pushed back until June due to the Virus situation.
#6 Thankful for pizza from Dominos. Haven't had it in ages, and it tasted sooooooooooo yummy. Amazing how good something is when you haven't had it in a while.
#7 Thankful also just to be able to get out of the house for a lil while Even if it was just to go to "Quest" and Publix grocery store to pick up a few things. Wow, amazing how much has changed in a month. The store has the aisles labeled for the traffic flow, up one aisle down the next.Very smart plan really as you are all going the same direction, so you don't have to worry about someone sneezing or coughing in your face!!
#8 Thankful for the ladies working at Quest. There was only 2 of them, but they have so much to do, they have to go to the door and screen people by asking them 5 questions to see if anyone might potentially have been exposed or might have covid, then get their info and ins. cards, then go deal with that....then come back out and give stuff back, and then bring in just 2 people at a time. They are constantly having to wipe everything down, and if the bell on the door rings they have to run and tell people they can't come in until they are screened. They have it posted right on the door to read their sign before entering the bldg. but no one reads it. They open all the doors for you so you don't have to touch anything, and then there are always some folks who just don't seem to be able to be nice to anyone or to be understanding about any thing, so they have to always put up with that too. God Bless these folks for all the extra things they have to do that make it safe for every- one but makes their day so much more involved and stressful I am sure. #9 Thankful for all our medical staffs and essential workers out there that have all these new things they have to put into play to keep everyone safe. It's a lot of extra tasks for them, let alone the fact that they are out there putting their themselves at risk.
#10 Thankful for something fun we have coming up. I will tell you about it in a few weeks. #11 Thankful for all the free oxygen God has allowed me to breathe all my 68 yrs. I saw something on facebook about a 93 yr. old man who had been on a ventilator and who was asked to pay for a day of it's use, and he began to cry and the Dr. told him not to worry about the cost, which was 500 Euros a day. The older man said I am not crying about the cost of the ventilator I can pay that, I am thinking about the 93 yrs. of free oxygen I have breathed my whole life that I could never pay for but have never Thanked God for until now........ Wow.....certainly made me think.....How about you??
#12 Thankful once again for the Christian TV show "Better Together". They have been doing their show thru skype and each show is about the situation we all find our- selves in, and it has been so helpful and inciteful and uplifting and encouraging. If you haven't watched I would highly recommend it. It is on Trinity broad- casting at 1:30 EDT Mon. thru Friday. I absolutely hate to miss it....You can also go to https://www.bettertogether.tv/watch and click on watch the show and start with watching Episode 21 (I think that is where the ones about the virus start) Anyway, you will not be disappointed.........
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week, this is the coming out of Covid -19 quarantine Edition. Thanks for coming by and hope you have a delightful weekend. Love, Hugs, and Sweet May Blessings, Nellie Sharing with:
