Thankful Thursday May 12, 2022, Pictures of our family room from Easter to Spring look.

For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; 

he is to be feared above all gods.

1 Chronicles 16:25 NIV


Greetings Sweet Friends,

.Hope you all had a great Mother's day, 

and feel more loved and special than before....

Our week has been good... the first part of

 the week was busy, but the last part, we have

 been a bit on the tired side, cause we have

 had so many busy weeks lately. So just been

taking it easy since Monday to catch up

on our energy levels and rest.  

Pictures today are from our family room 

change over from Easter to Spring.  I was

a bit lazy this year and just removed the

Easter things and found a replacement

for what I removed. Made it quicker

and easier than normal.


To Spring

So on with my Thankfuls.............


Thankful for some interesting and hopeful signs of life as we once knew it.  I started getting emails from New York & Company, where I used to buy clothes many moons ago, and the clothing was almost shocking in a good way.....very vivid bright colors and many fabrics and styles that I have lived thru in my life time of 70 years. Quite entertaining I have to say! Click here. if you would like to check it out.

Also, we went to our Kohl's store this week, and they were totally re-doing our store ( I haven't seen any stores re-do anything in years) and they were putting in a Sephora area (which was all blocked off so we couldn't see it -Penneys has that,  so I think it is all about makeup.) They also had all sort of bright colored clothing for Spring this year.  So refreshin,g, as I haven't seen much change in fashions either in years!  So it was a bit of a happy shock!!  lol


Thankful for my tender hearted lil granddaughter.

We saw some crows trying to carry off some-

thing out in the street, but guess it was too 

heavy so they left, and at first, we thought 

it was a big snake, turned out it was a small

squirrel that had been grazed by a car I guess.

Anyway, he was dead but not smashed at

least, anyway, she right away said Grammy

we should bury him, and of course, we did

just that with Grampy's help.  She said a

sweet prayer for him, over his grave!





Thankful for a sweet and fun day with lil darling.

Today was her first day out of school for the 

Summer,  so we just had a fun day.


Thankful that our Son could have dinner with us

and play games for awhile when he came to pick

her up.  That will tied me over for a few weeks

until we can all be together to celebrate. Our

Daughter and Son-in_love will be coming in

about 10 days so I decided I would rather wait 

and celebrate while we could all be together.

The top is the same, but I did change

the bottom up.

I left a few of my bunnies out that

didn't look like Easter, cause bunnies

do come out a lot in the Spring.

Oops can you find the photo bomb

in the picture below???  lol


Thankful to have everything ready for our

Mother's Day dinner Surprise for my friend.

 Just have to pop stuff in the oven, and hubby

 will grill the London Broil. 

 Looking forward to it, but have to say I am

tired, been a long day, but a good day.


Thankful for what a lovely Mother's Dad

we had with our friends. She said she and

hubby were encouraged by it.........So our

mission was accomplished, and happily so.

It did seem strange not to see our kiddos,

but did hear from them, and it is fun,

 knowing I have that to look forward to 

in another week or so.

Notice anything different from the

picture above #5 ???


Thankful for my new Nutribullet, a gift

from my hubby and daughter. My magic

bullet has'nt been working too well and 

making a smoothie has been taking a lot

of time taking the lid off and putting it

back on to check to see if my frozen bananas

are being chopped up all of a sudden. This

has been going on a few weeks now, and

my husband sees it of course, and my 

daughter has been on the phone while I

was trying to make one.  So both of them

got me a new smoothie machine. Dee

had hers sent to hubby for me, before I

decided to postpone Mother's Day, and

 then hubby decided to get me one with-

out knowing Dee has already gotten

me one.  He got a ninga because it had

more power, but then the nutri bullet

wound up having more power, so we

kept it and my Daughter is gonna take

the ninja cause she needs one too.

So it all worked out.....made my first

smoothie today, and it took more time

to fill it with the ingredients and 

about 2-3 seconds to whirl made

of a nice quick smoothie....

So I just love it.........Perfect Gift cause

 I make quite a few smoothies.

Easter to Spring


Thankful for "24 Hour Salad",  it is such

a great salad, and I make it in advance

and just mix it up when ready to eat,

Delicious and perfect for holidays so

you don't have to be in the kitchen any

more than you have to....

love make ahead recipes.

Click here if you would like to see

the recipe.


Thankful that hubby and I are feeling better today,

think we picked up a 24 hr. stomach bug.


Thankful that hubby was able to help tutor

a young lady we know several times this week

 He said they taught each other......cause it has 

been a long time since he had geometry.

Hopefully she will be able to pass her test

with a higher grade than before.


Thankful for a fun day with lil darling,

We got to have her all day now that

she is out of school for the Summer.


Thankful that I was able to find a replacement

gift for my friend, cause it was the wrong size, 

but the original one I got was now Out of Stock. 

Think she is probably gonna like this one

better anyway,


Well, this is it for Cozy Place this week!!

Thanks for coming by 


Hope you have a lovely week.

Keep your light shining brightly

Love, Hugs and 

Mid-May Blessings,

#1. Yes, I'm a very contented person with my "laid back" lifestyle, ha!
#2. I was quite surprised to see 3 huge vultures sitting on the top of my house when I came back from checking my mail yesterday!!! I went back out about 5 minutes later and praise the LORD they were gone!!!
#3. Wow, out of school already! That was so sweet of her to pray for the little squirrel.
#4. Praise the LORD for family gatherings!
#5. That's one thing I've noticed since turning 70, I tire out easily.
#6. Though I no longer have a cell phone to text, I'm thankful for my computer email.
#7. Thank the LORD for appliances that make things so simple.
#8. I love your 24 hour salad. Whoever came up with the recipe surely made a great salad!
#9. I'm so glad you both are feeling better. I'm having my usual allergies for this time of the year.
#10. Good for him and her! I pray she did well on her test.
#11. It's so wonderful you get so much time to spend with her.
#12. I'm sure she will enjoy it!

Nellie I am so happy you get to have that time with your grand. Family is so important. I am happy to hear your daughter and her hubby are coming in soon too. I love those family times with my girls and grandgirls and hubbies. So I feel your excitement.
Have a good weekend. xoxo Kris

Thanks Kris,
It is nice to have someone say they feel happy when good things are happening, so thank you for that, it really blesses my heart!!
I feel family is very important too, and feel we are so blessed to be able to spend so much time with our granddaughter, cause we have friends who rarely get to see their grandchildren,
and I feel so badly for them and the grandchildren.
Just 4 more days and we get to see our Daughter and hubby and grandson Dog, Bentley. lol
So we are all getting excited...
Hope you have a lovely weekend hon, and thanks for coming by and leaving such sweet comments.

Hi Susan,
Thanks for coming by. That was funny about the vultures. lol Occasionally, when we sit our back we will see some circling in the sky above us, and Jimmy always teases that they are looking for us old folks, and I always say speak for

Yea, she gets out in early May every year and starts back in late August or early September.

Yea, think as we get older we just don't have the stamina we used to, but that's okay, we just do have to learn to pace ourselves, and we can still accomplish what we need to...

Thanks that is one of my fav salads too, I got that from my friend Arlene who passed away last year. I got that from her over 40 yrs., times does fly.

Continuing to feel good thankfully, cause I had a few days where things were sort of off and on. Dee has not been feeling well since Thursday but is doing much better today, now
just praying Jerry doesn't catch whatever she has, but we and others are praying for all of us to be well.

well, have a good weekend hon,
Love, Nellie
