Thankful Thursday August 18, 2022, Pictures of Paris, France

In God we make our boast all day long,

    and we will praise your name forever.

Psalm 44:8 NIV

Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hi, How ya doing?? Has it been a good week for you??  Hope so!  Can't believe we are passed mid-August already......only 3 months until Thanksgiving! 

Hard to believe that!!  

             The Eiffel Tower, of course, 

Pictures today are things we saw in Paris, France about 50 years ago.  We lived in Europe our 2nd year of marriage and we got to spend a weekend there.  These are not my pictures altho we do have a lot that are similar, but they are, of course, not digital photos, so I happened to see these on Unsplash and they are pictures of the things that we did see, and it was such a fun blast from the past for me, and who doesn't love to see pictures from other thought you guys might just enjoy seeing them too. You probably will know most of them, so don't be offended if you do, some folks just might not know, so it is for them I labeled them.

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


Thankful that lil darlings first day of school went well,and she likes her new teachers.  We also got to take her out to dinner and have a sleepover and then make her fav breakfast and do some of her homeschooling the next day.

        The Arc of Triomphe - First thing                  you see when you enter Paris by car.


Thankful that we got her one of the back packs on wheels (like how they make the suitcases) because we got a great deal, and it was really necessary as she has to bring so many books and things home with her from school, you can't believe how heavy her book bag was..... she looked more like a high schooler than a 3rd grader. lol  It is good that she is strong..... cause I could hardly pick it up.

 We also just read a news report today that said a lot of school kids wind up in the emergency room because of injuries caused by heavy bag packs. I can really believe that too! So we are doubly grateful after reading that!!


Thankful my Son got home safe and sound from a work trip on Friday.

     The Notre Dam Cathedral - the stain
     glass windows are incredibly beautiful.


Thankful that a design project that my daughter

and her friend just finished up turned out really 

well, and their clients were very happy!  They

were an older couple (like her parents.....)

and they had fun doing it as well.


Thankful that a Dr. Appt. with a new Dr. went well for my SIL Susan, and that he didn't change anything.

               The Sacre Coeur Basilica


Thankful for the wonderful memories

of our trip to Paris when we were

only 20 and 24 yrs. old. It was

a trip we will never forget and one

we never ever imagined we would

ever get to do and see the things

we saw in geography or history

books. It was truly amazing to us

to see the Eiffel Tower and the 

Arch of Triomphe

#7and 8

Thankful for a long chat with my

Daughter on the Ipad this Saturday

morning, as we haven't had a chance

to do that lately. Getting to see her as we

talk just adds so much more to the

 conversation and helps to not miss

seeing her so much. Also Thankful for

what a wonderful invention facetime, 

skype and all those sources are...

The Mona Lisa at the Louvre Museum

Inside the Louvre Museum - It is such

a huge and beautiful museum, So we

 just looked for the famous paintings

 and sculptures that we read were there,

 like the Venus De Milo, The last Supper

and Monet' Paintings.


Thankful for a good day at church and

a nice lunch out with some other friends

to celebrate the passing of his test for

his job.  Think I mentioned his passing

the test in last weeks we

got to celebrate this week.  lol


Thankful that I got about 7 new cards

done this week.


Pont Alexander Bridge going across 

the Seine River


Thankful for our lovely Daughter, her birthday

was yesterday, and glad she had a good day.  

She and hubby are going to their beach cottage

 for a few days to celebrate and get a change 

of scenery.


Thankful that we got 2 big broken limbs taken off a tree in our back woods, and a bunch of small dead ones as well, and it looks so much better, and I was able to order some new hardware for our old dresser that we moved to the guest bedroom, it will hopefully give it a new more modern look and will match with our new night stands. We are still progressing in there, and we will get there eventually. lol

                The Bastille Monument


Well, that's it for this week at Cozy Place.

Thanks for coming by and

 do come again soon!

Love, Hugs and 

Mid August Blessings,
