faithful in prayer.
Greetings and Welcome to August
Hope it has been a good week for you!!
Can you believe we are in August already,
Wow.....Fall is just about 6-7 weeks away.
Actually we want feel like Fall tho until
the end of October here. But, hopefully I
will be able to do what I always do.....
try to fake us out by decorating the house
for Fall. lol
Since we are still in Summer I decided
to show you some Coastal scenes of our
Bedroom from Summer's past.
It looks quite a bit different now.
Well, on with my Thankfuls....................
Thankful for a fun time on Friday taking
lil darling out shopping, which is a very
rare occasion, then she and Dad stayed
for dinner and played games. Always
love these times together.
#2 and 3
Thankful to hear back from a previous blogging
friend who hasn't been blogging for years now,
We had so much in common that we became
fast friends. It was so good to hear from her,
but was so sorry to hear she has been going
through some very hard times. Guess that
is why the Lord must have prompted me
to write her in the first place. Now we
can pray for her. Thankful that the Lord
#4 and 5
Thankful for a fun Sunday: Church, then
a quick run to SAM's, out to lunch at
LongHorns, just the 2 of us, In the late
afternoon we decided to drive over to where
we used to live when we first moved here,
while our now home was being built.
What a change to the street we lived on.
There was only 4 houses on our street,
now every lot is filled so there are about
12-14 homes. Really fun to see the old
neighborhood. The house we rented was
right on the golf course, and we have
so many fun memories of walking and
jogging barefoot on the golf course in
the late evening.......our Son was only
2 1/2 yrs. old back then. We enjoyed
living there so much, and were almost
sorry when we had to move, course we
got over that very quickly.... and after
seeing the street all filled up the way it
is now, we are extremely happy we didn't
choose a lot there. Thankful that after-
wards, we went for ice cream at a new
place not far from our house, and it
was really good ice cream and it was
shaded and breezy out so we were able
to just sit outside and enjoy it.
Quite unusual for us here in Florida
this time of year.
Thankful for good news about my friends
Grandbaby who will be born in September.
She was in breach position but is now in
Thankful too, that her husband passed
a very important test for his job.
Both are answers to many prayers
going up for them.
Thankful that my other long time
friend is recovering nicely from her
hip replacement surgery. Only 2 wks.
in so she has a ways to go yet!
Thankful that my Son-in-loves parents
are visiting with he and my Daughter
for the week. It has been awhile since
they have been up there, so they were
very excited about their visit.
Thankful for Air Conditioning and paddle
fans. Since we have been working outside
every Wed. morning, I can not tell you
how good the A/C and fans feel when
we come inside. Glorious!
Thankful for all the berries we have been
enjoying lately. We always eat strawberries,
but we have been eating blueberries, black-
berries and raspberries too. We put them
on our bagels to go with our flavored
cream cheese, and putting them in our
salads as well. So delish and summery!
Thankful for more progress on our yard
and in our guest bedroom. Had no luck
finding night stands in stores, but had
some pop up online at Wally World and
remembered seeing them and liking them
(but then saw the ones I ordered that
came damaged,) because I liked them a
little more. So since the new ones, have
to be put together, we decided to take a
chance, hoping and praying they will
come in the way they are supposed to
look. So will see.....next week!
Thankful for Summer cause we get to spend
a lot more time with lil darling. Next week,
she will be going back to school, so we will
still see her, of course, but just not quite
as much. We feel so blessed to be able to
have this experience with her, especially
since she is our only grandchild.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week.
Glad you could stop by
Hope you have a truly lovely weekend.
Love, Hugs, and
Early August Blessings,
