Psalm 52:8-9 NIV
Greetings Sweet Friends,
Welcome to the Fall Season!
It has finally arrived and hope you will be enjoyingall the wonderful things that Fall brings to mind. Fall makes me feel very nostalgic, as I remember as a kid going to football games( mostly to socialize) and it was cold so we had to bundle up, cause they were at night, raking and burning leaves, getting to wear some sweaters and long sleeves to school (which you had to take off or practically die in by 11 AM... lol) Fall carnivals, and candied apples, and I could go on.........but I will spare you as I know you have your own sweet list....
Have to say Fall is the only time I love Fall colors in my home! lol Cause Fall colors make the house feel warm and cozy which is not what we want here in Florida during our Spring, Summer and quite a few Winter Days too. So enjoying the change of faking myself out that it is cool outside, course, I lose that illusion the moment I walk out the door. lol
Pictures today are of a neutral kitchen table, from the past, so I am gonna ease you into Fall cause I think it also has a Fall look as well............
So on with my Thankfuls......
Thankful to get to talk to another long time friend
recently, it's like we just pick up where we left
off..........love that! She lives in Alabama and
I live in Florida. I have know her for over
50 years, I worked with her only months
before I married my hubby.
Thankful my Sister-in-law continues to do well,
She is supposed to get moved to rehab soon.
Note; She was moved to rehab on Sunday afternoon.
She is coming along well, but these things take time.
Thankful for how chatty lil darling was this
week when we picked her up from school.
Sometimes she is tired and doesn't feel like
talking, so we get a kick out of it when she
is so talkative.
Thankful for ice cream sandwiches. They have been
our go to dessert for about a month or so. we just
split one, and it the perfect amount to make us happy!
We have lil darling hooked on them now too. lol
Thankful for our church service this morning,
it was really a good sermon out of Habbakuk
chapter 1 and 2. Didn't get to go out with our
friends today as we had to run to the store
and to take care of Susan's pets.
Thankful that Susan finally got moved to the
rehab center today. It is one that is affiliated
with our Church Denomination. We have not
been able to see her cause of Covid, and was
hoping to go see her today, but visits are by
appt. only, so there was no one there to make
an appt. for today, so have to wait and call
tomorrow and see when we can go. She is
not in pain, and is walking with a walker
some, so they just have to get her built up
physically with exercise and eating well, and
also get one of her meds straightened out
it was extremely high and might have also
been responsible for her fall. Since the levels
are going down she is a lot more clear minded,
which is great.
Thankful that we didn't wind up going just to take her
phone charger and drop it off, because thankfully we
found out she has a phone in her room, so we could wait
till we go visit. Cause later today we found out thru
talking to her that we have the wrong phone charger,
so would have been a wasted trip.
Thankful for a very encouraging conversation
with some young people at our church (in their late
30's-early 40's) that we have known a long time,
and what a great and faith filled outlook they
have on life and how they are really trusting
God in all the craziness there is going on.
Really blessed our hearts.
Thankful that I Talked with another longtime
friend this week, that I haven't seen or talked to
in a long while other than commenting on face book
occasionally. I saw on face book her Mother just
passed away on Monday. I always marvel that
it is like we just saw each other yesterday. Just so
natural and normal. It was great to talk to her
even under/ and because of the circumstances.
Thankful for Zyrtec...........or I think I would not
have gotten any sleep at all last night. Our allergies
are acting up big time because I am allergic to birds,
cats and dust, of which all 3 are at my sister-in-laws
house. Hubby is allergic to cats too, but think maybe
more, as he had to take one too. So we had no sleep
until about 5 a.m., and got up at 10 a.m. so feeling
pretty dopey headed today!! lol
It just makes me so tired and drowsy feeling
the next day which is why I put off taking it so
long.............but so thankful it does work when
I have to take it...........hopefully we will sleep
like a rock tonight. lol
Thankful for a McDonald's "Caramel Frappe"
that helped pull me out of some of my tired and
drowsy dopey headedness today, and it was
quite delicious I might add.
Thankful for a fun night out looking for a new
computer chair, as mine just broke yesterday.
Didn't find one, but did get some ideas and saw
one online I really like, so gotta do a bit more
research before I decide. While we were out
we went to TJ Maxx, our Fav Mexican restaurant
and even for Jeremiahs Ice cream, and it was
yummy and to cap it off we saw this huge
harvest moon as we turned onto our street.
It was really beautiful!
Have to say it was a much needed night
out as it has been a busy and crazy week,
and I really didn't even want to go, but
hubby did, and I am so glad I pushed myself
to do it, as it was good to get out and enjoy
life a little.
Well, that's our week at Cozy Place.
Thanks for swinging by.....
Have a great weekend
keep your light shining brightly!
Love, Hugs, and
4th week of September Blessings,
