Have a Sweetly Blessed Day,
So on with my Thankfuls.................
Thankful for some delicious Pork Fried Rice
I made us for dinner. I typically do not like
Pork fried rice when we buy it from a Chinese
restaurant, but this recipe is just so wonderful.
I think too, it is because I use buttered Jasmine
rice with cilantro. This was only my 2nd time
making it, but it was just so good.. if I do
say so myself.... and hubby really loved it
Click here if you want to try it.
Thankful that hubby was able to get the lawn
mowed finally......we had a lot of rain lately.
Thankful Mr. Bunny came by for a visit, on
Saturday afternoon. Funny the last few times
hubby mowed the lawn, he came out, I think
he really likes the smell of freshly mowed
grass evidently, and it's probably easier to
eat as well. lol
Thankful that I made myself get up and
do a Leslie Sansonne video a few times this
week even tho I didn't feel like it, cause
I actually feel better when I do.
I have had a lack of energy lately, but
realized if I don't get moving I am never
gonna have any energy. I just did a
one mile video that took about 15 mins.
but at least it is a start...........lol
Thankful hubby got a good report
from his dental cleaning, always
nice to hear.
Thankful for house flippers. I know they
do it to make a living, but they also do
a great service to their communities
as well. We also, enjoy watching their
Thankful for our church and a great sermon
series we are hearing that will last for
a while, it's on forgiveness.
#8 and 9
Thankful for lunch out with some other
friends and their teenage daughter.
(As our usual lunch mates had friends
visiting from out of town). We went
to Texas Roadhouse for a change, and
they even bought our lunch, which was
a sweet and unexpected surprise.
It was quite funny because we were
seated at a table right in front of our
other friends/lunchmates, so we were
thankful we got to meet their out of
town friends as well, cause we feel
like we know them we have heard so
much about them. Lovely Folks!
Thankful for a new delicious ice cream
treat we found at our local Publix grocer
yesterday. A buy one, get on free deal
and so glad we decided to try them.
They are made by "Mayfield" in case
you can't read it on the package. lol
Thankful for another answered prayer
for a dear lady in our church. She lost
her wallet and asked for prayer, cause
with it she lost her pictures, and of course,
would have all the hassles of replacing
things that go along with that, and
praise the Lord she got her wallet back.
It pays to pray!!
Thankful that we can still do yard work
at our age, as some can't. We have decided
to make every Wednesday our gardening
day unless we are gone or some other
activity comes up. Made more progress
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good.
His love endures forever.
Psalm 136:1 NIV
Greetings Sweet Friends,
How's your week been?? Hope it has been
a good one. Our was good, have had a lot
of rain this week, which is good. Had a
minor disappointment - remember I told
you we had ordered some night stands for
our guest room. Well, the good news is they
came on time, the bad news is they were
both damaged. So had to go back to Target,
guess that's it for ordering online. We did
go out last night to look around but didn't
come up with anything we liked. We will
just keep looking as we aren't in a hurry! lol

So, on with my Thankfuls..............
Thankful for a fun day with lil darling on Friday.
We played Starbucks on Thursday and Publix
grocery store on Friday and we all had dinner
together which was take out from Tijuana flats.
Too pooped to cook!! All very casual...........
Then played some games for awhile.
#2 and 3
Thankful that we are progressing on our guest
bedroom. Hubby found a way to fix the dresser
drawers and we got the dresser moved into
the bedroom, and Thankful we are now awaiting
2 new White night stands I found online at Target
that I hope will look great in there.
Thankful our Daughter and Son-in-love had an
opportunity to have a 3 days get away to Asheville
this past weekend. They used to live there about
6 years ago. Happy to report they got back
home safe and sound and had a great time.
Thankful hubby got the parts he needed today
and was able to fix the drawers on our dresser,
so I started putting some things in the drawers.
So another step done.
Thankful for a good day at church and
lunch out with our friends to Cracker
Barrel. Good time!
Thankful that our Lead Pastor and his
wife did a special evening service (like
a fireside chat) where they talked about
parenting, and they had a list of questions
that people asked. It was really good,
and really funny at times too. After-
wards we went out for Bar-be-cue
with some other friends from our church
that we have known for years. Nice
to have a chance to catch up with them.
Thankful for an answer to prayer for a
friend of ours Daughter, who is expecting
a baby in September. She was told her
baby has a huge hole in it's heart and
that they will induce her and take the
baby right to surgery. Last visit they
told her the hole had closed up so much
that they could now wait until 4-6 mos.
after she is born.......so now we are all
continuing to pray that the hole closes
all the way, and the baby is perfect in
everyway, as they were also told the
baby might have "Downs syndrome"
Thankful for Peach season. Have really
been enjoying the fresh peaches. Had
a peach shortcake for breakfast!!
Thankful for more work done in our
backyard, and hubby finished the
trees near the house in the side yard.
Now have some small ones needing to
be trimmed under our power lines
connecting to our house on the
Thankful for a good report on 2 of my
long time friends. One had hip replace-
ment surgery yesterday, and it went
very well, and will come home today,
the other one, that had the 2 broken
legs a year and a half ago, was having
pain when walking on her bad leg, all
of a sudden, and she was afraid maybe
she might have a hairline fracture, so
went to the Dr. and they did a bunch
of x-rays, anyway, they found nothing
but said she has a lot of arthritis, and
felt that was the problem.
So the Lord answered all of the
prayers of so many, that went up
for both of them.
Thankful that we were finally able to have
our sweet lil neighbor girl over on Thursday.
We have been trying for over a month to
have her come play with lil darling, but
she has been away visiting her cousins.
So she and lil darling were in heaven,
they had so much fun playing.
Well, that's if for Cozy Place this week.
Glad you graced us with your presence
Hope you have a splendid rest of the week,
Love, hugs, and Mid July

Greetings Sweet Friends,
How are ya??? Doing well, I hope.
Been a good week here, Productive but quick,
these days just click off so fast anymore, Can not
believe it is Friday already.
Pictures today are of a Summer Supper Table
from the past. We tend to use more paper goods
during the Summer, as we are laid back casual,
but doesn't mean it can't be pretty or inviting!!
And on with my Thankfuls.......
Thankful for a really long and good heart to heart talk
with my lovely Daughter on Friday. We both needed
that, as we are missing each other since it has been
6 weeks since we last saw each other.
Thankful for a lovely and easy dinner we made Friday night.
If you remember our Daughter had taught me a great recipe
for Salmon (Click here), then I found out from my neighbor
that Publix Grocery store also has Salmon marinated in
Bourbon and Brown Sugar, and she said it was really
great too. So we got some of the Brown sugar Salmon
last night, I thought the bourbon was mixed with the
Brown Sugar, but they are 2 different types, the
Bourbon was $2 more per filet, so we went with the
Brown Sugar, and weren't sure if we would like the
We put it in the aluminum foil and added a tablespoon of
water to each filet and he added a tablespoon of maple syrup
on top of each one, then wrapped it up and put it in the oven
for 10-12 mins. at 425 degrees. Oh My, it was really
great, and I don't typically like Salmon but am so happy
to have found a way to make it that I like, since it is so
good for us. I made buttered Jasmine rice with cilantro,
and a salad with spring mix, strawberries, blueberries and
blackberries, then threw on a lil bit of coconut and some pecans
on it, and used Lite Raspberry vinaigrette made by
Kens steak house dressing.
We were both so pleased cause it was like a gourmet meal.
Thankful to have the opportunity to go to the birthday
party of our friends Father. He turned 100 years
old, and he has been a Pastor for most of his life and
is also, a WW2 Veteran as well. It was such
a lovely party and they did so many neat things to honor
him. The police and firemen of their town did a motor-
cade, and presented him with a hat and badge from
the Sherriff's Dept,, and a few of the officers even
were able to come in have some food, and they later
came back and gave him an American Flag and
some sort of Police Coin. Also, his kids honored
him by singing a song about him, and telling what
a wonderful Father he was and is. He truly
is an amazing man, because of his relationship
with the Lord. He was just so overwhelmed and
overjoyed by all the people that came to celebrate
with him. They also had a young lady from our
church playing the violin at times, Tons of food
and a big cake and other desserts as well, and
the house was beautifully decorated for the 4th
of July too. They thought of everything......
it was probably the one of the nicest events we
have been to in a long while.
Thankful also, to finally get to meet our friends
family members that we have heard so much about
over the years. They were all lovely.
Thankful for our friends and what great children
they are to their Father, and all the hard work
they put in to honor him. It was truly awesome.
Thankful that we got more done on our guest
bedroom today. (Monday) We like how
it is coming along. Now hubby is trying to
find a way to fix a couple of our drawers in
our old dresser, and if that doesn't work we
will have to find a different path, but knowing
my hubby he will find a way. He can fix
just about anything.
Thankful that we were able to work out in our
backyard again today, Thursday is our yard
trash pickup, so Wed. is the best day to do the
work out there and I love that we can just
put it out there on the curb and it is gone the next
day. Also, really enjoy watching the improvement
each time we work out there.
Thankful for a fun breakfast treat I saw on
someone's instagram page a few days ago.
It is yogurt with fresh peaches, coconut and
pecans on top. I used coconut yogurt and
it was really a healthy yet yummy treat.
Thankful for things that make us laugh.
Like this Rooster.......Click here
or type it in for yourself. It is hilarious,
but make sure to watch all the way to the end.
Thankful for the song "Your a good good Father".
It has been swirling in my head all week.
Click here to hear this Chris Tomlin song.
Thankful for a nice but shorter day with lil darling.
Dad was able to come earlier so he could do
something with her. Nice! and we will get
to see her tomorrow as well.
Thankful to hear our granddaughter singing
Christian songs and putting them on her
play list on her ipod.
That's it for Cozy Place this week.
Glad you came by
