Thankful Thursday January 27, 2022, Winter/Valentines decorating from the past

Praise our God, all peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard;

Psalm 66:8 NIV

Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you feeling and doing well.

I can honestly say that is us, in the last few days

Praise the Lord!!

I have just been getting the house back together,

  and looking forward to seeing lil darling

 today.......but my Son called a few hours ago and

 said, he was on the way to get her from school

 early cause she isn't feeling well and has a

 headache.  Which is how I started with this stuff, 

 so hoping and praying she doesn't have what we

 had. If she does, when are thankful to be able to

say she didn't get it from us. 

 So to say we are disappointed would be an

 understatement, cause we haven't been able

 to see her for over 3 weeks mostly cause we

 were sick. We were suppose to have her

 tomorrow so guess we will see what

 tomorrow brings.

Pictures are from Cozy Place Winter Decor

 from the past.

So on with my Thankfuls......


Thankful for another Sweet Friend, this time

 from church who called and asked if we needed

 some meals. Altho we didn't need to take her

 up on was still lovely and encouraging

 to us that she asked and called out of concern.


Thankful my cut is healing quite well.

Note:  Just about healed completely.


Thankful that today I felt pretty much like my

old self, and didn't wear out quite as much, so

hopefully coming to the end of this stuff.


Thankful to have a lil creativity today,  and got

 a lil done on putting the house back together,  and

 started a few Valentines cards.  So yippee for that!


Thankful that a number of people we have been

praying for that were sick, are now doing fine.

Always encouraging to hear.


Thankful we have survived a cold, flu or covid

 or  whatever it was, with Prayers, vitamins,

 hydration, rest and sleep, eating well and our

 oximeter, and staying home.  We had a few bad

 days, while we were running a fever,  but after

 that it was just being tired and coughing.  So we

 weren't feeling great but we weren't feeling

 horrible either, but very Thankful to be feeling

 good again, as it seems like an eternity since 

we have been feeling somewhat normal.


Thankful to wake up to 36 degrees and frosted

roofs and lawns.  Winter has officially arrived

in my mind, anyway, as we rarely go into the

low 30's, here in Florida, think we were maybe

 33-34 during the night.  It is a bright clear 

blue sky day too........gorgeous out!

Note:  Sat. night we are going to 27 degrees,

it has been many many years since that has

happened here.


Thankful to get out of the House.  We took

a ride to a nearby beach town my daughter

had told us about,  just to look at the houses

 and just see a different change of scenery. 

 It was lovely....then we went to our fav Mexican

 restaurant and to TJ Maxx, then came home

to watch a movie called "Candy Coated

Christmas".  We wanted to watch it cause 

Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond was an extra

in the movie.  It was cute, and she did a great

job,  her name was BEE, and she was truly

just herself.  Love that!  What you see is what

you get......


Thankful that I am finally getting our house

 back to normal, still have a bit more to go, 

but just about there. Finished the living

room today, it is decorated for Valentines

day, and just have a few things to finish

in the dining room and I will be done!



Thankful for a quote I heard that I think

 is so funny, but I also think is true.

 Laurie Crouch said it is what her hubby, 

Matt says about her magnifying mirror....

"He calls it the accuser of the brethren".

Think about it....isn't that so true,  we 

look in it and think oh my heavens, and

forget that is not what we really look

like or what others see. A big lie....Exactly

 what the accuser of the brethren

 (the enemy) tell us, so many times about

 ourselves or situations. 

Great description!


Thankful for a sweet and gregarious 

young man, probably in his mid twenties,

I would say,  who started a conversation

with us when we were in line at Wally

World. He was just such a wonderful

breathe of fresh air.  We loved it!

A very nice human being.........


Thankful to run a few errands we needed

to do, and for dinner out at Longhorn

Steak house.  Mostly dinner was great but

for some reason some things are just tasting

very salty to me at times, but fortunately

didn't ruin my dinner tho.


Well, that's it for Cozy Place this

week.  This is the Winter Decorating

Edition.   lol   I will probably show

you some pics next week.

Thanks for dropping in.....


Have a lovely rest of the week.

Love, Hugs and last of 

January Blessings,
