Pictures today are of our Thanksgivng
Table for 2022.
So on with my Thankfuls..............
Thankful we were able to get most of our Thanksgiving
day food purchased a week ahead, and will only need
a few last minute items.
Thankful for a fun night out looking around in Marshalls store, they have so many cute Christmas things, didn't buy any, cause I need more Christmas things like I need a big hole in my head. lol but have to say it was fun looking..............and then din din out at Carrabbas.....we pretended it was our real Anniversary dinner!! lol
Thankful for a cute sight that made us laugh
in the grocery store. There was a song playing
from our era, (don't even know the name of it,
but it was quite familiar) and I saw this guy
making his way thru the veggie aisle making
his own fun......he was pushing the cart and doing
some fancy steps and singing under his breathe,
just couldn't resist the beat of that music, and
must confess I couldn't resist it either, so was
doing a lil rhythm of my own. Maybe that's
why it was so funny to me, cause I sometimes
do that myself, but never saw anybody else
do it.......and he looked quite happy!! lol
So was fun to watch!! Especially since
everyone seems so down lately.
Thankful for a great day with lil darling
working on school work, and swinging on the
new swing every break she takes...........She loves
it even more than we thought she would.
Thankful our new treadmill arrived Friday.
It's our Anniversary present!!
Now just have to get used to it, my first time
on since I have hardly exercised for 6 wks.
cause of my back..... Within 3 mins. my legs
and hip joints were really hurting so bad I
had to get off and I was really winded.
So today I did 6 mins. and just my hip joints
hurt, then about hour later I did 9 mins. and
hip joints felt fine and I wasn't near as
winded as last night, but breathing heavy,
so just think it needs to be a gradual thing.
I also didn't feel like I was walking normally
either, so think I got that down better by
the 3rd time. lol So not anticipating any
problems the next time hopefully.
Thankful that are family can all be
together for Thanksgiving and hopefully
Thankful that even tho our power went
out again this morning, it was back
on by 10:30 a.m. This is the 2nd time
since Hurricane Ian. The reason was
animals on the line. We are thinking
squirrels probably. Poor lil guys,
May they rest in Peace!!
Thankful for a different Sunday Service.
We had a man named "Marquis Laughlin"
come and recite and act out the about 7 or 8
chapters of "Acts", from the Bible.
He has come before and done other books
of the bible, and he just really makes the
bible come alive. We really enjoyed it,
and are amazed at his ability to memorize
all of that.
Thankful for lunch out with our friends
to Applebee's. Haven't been there in a long
time, and really enjoyed the food and the
company most of all.
Thankful for all the things we take for
granted, like relationships, a roof over
our head, a comfortable bed, food in our
pantry and fridge, income, and God's
goodness to us every single day.
Thankful that I have our Thanksgiving
Thankful that everything that can be
prepared ahead of time is done, and all
I need to do is pop it in the oven today.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week,
This is the Thanksgiving Edition!
Have a Wonderful Day with your Family
Love, Hugs and
from the past, here at Cozy Place, and a few
shots of a wonderful Sunset.
So let's check out the Thankfuls...........
Thankful we got our porch all back together
AGAIN! Fortunately, it wasn't to bad to clean
this time. Yea!!
Thankful we decided to get a portable treadmill,
because we both like walking and then we can
do it while we are watching TV, instead for sitting
the whole time. Hoping it will help strengthen my
back maybe. Works for me!
Thankful for the most glorious sunset and sky
I have seen in a long time, and it came 2 days
after tropical storm Nicole.
It was like a big smile from the Lord.
Thankful for a number of friends that called to check
on us after Tropcial storm Nicole..... always nice to
know someone cares about you.
Thankful for the way the Lord reaffirms us at times
in ways, that He has led us, that we just never even
thought about...... He showed me one this week.
Thankful for a lovely Sunday......great worship service,
lunch out with our friends, and a chance to catch up with
each others happenings, delicious food at Texas Road
House, a quick run Sams, and the grocery store then home to rest and relax for the rest of the day.
Thankful that our poinsettia plants are starting to
turn red, so we might just have all red ones by
December. At least I am hoping so....
Thankful for what we thought was a hilarious
video. If you need a laugh....I think this will
give you one, it sure did for us. lol
It's called Alexa for Seniors
Thankful for a unique encounter we had with a young
man at our grocery store. We have had him check
our groceries out before and exchanged pleasantries
with him. This time he was on the way in to the
store as we were walking in, and he said hello,
then he turned around and asked us, how long have
yall been together, and we told him we had been
married for 52 years, and he said Wow, you just
don't hear that anymore. Anyway we chatted more
on the way into the store and he asked us what
we thought the secret was to our being together
so long, and we said, all the praise goes to the
Lord, cause Jesus is the reason, so we were able
to impart some information to him that we would
have never had the opportunity to before, and then
we were in his check out lane and he asked us some
more questions. Such a neat kid.....he is probably
a Sr.in high school or a young college student.
Very impressed with his heart!
Thankful that TBN made the "Better Together"
show now an hour rather than just 30 mins.
It really gives them a chance to be more indepth
with things their conversations.
We are really enjoying it.
It truly is one of the best shows on TV.
If you can't find it on TV you can go to
BetterTogether.org and your computer.
Thankful for my red lettered bible, where every
thing Jesus said is in red. We have been reading
thru the gospels again, and I just love knowing
when I am reading things that Jesus actually said.,
Thankful that I am feeling better, as I was
feeling terrible on Tuesday and running a
fever and thought I was coming down with
some virus or something. Took some Vit C,
and B-complex, to boost my immune system,
and Alleve (for the body aches) and went to
bed and slept for about 4 hrs. or so, and
felt good every since I got up yesterday.
So happy about that since I do have things
to get done in this next week, and as I
am still babying my back some. lol
That's it for this week at Cozy Place.
Glad you could drop by
Keep your light shining brightly
Love, Hugs and
Hello Sweet Friend,
Welcome to Thankful Thursday,
Well, we are happy to report we made it through
Tropical storm Nicole with no problems and with our
power intact, as well. We however, were shocked that the
beach house we stayed at in May (for my 70th Birthday)
must of had a lot of beach erosion from Hurriane Ian, so they
had put up a seawall, Thankfully, because the 2 houses on each
side of them were completely demolished during Tropical storm
Nicole from terrible beach erosion that also occurred during
Very Sobering and Sad to see the drone footage of it.
One of the homes that got demolished... we got to talk to the
people who lived there all the time, and they were very nice folks,
and they were also part owner of the place we stayed at, so we all
feel so badly for them. I just can't quit thinking about it,
think I am still a bit in shock. So just can't imagine how
they must feel............as well as so many others....
Well, it has been an eventful week here, most of it good,
other than the sad story, I wrote about above and
more hurricane preparations............lol
Hope you are having a good week and looking forward
to your weekend.
Pictures today are of a Thanksgiving Table from the past.
Thought you might be like me and looking for ideas for your
Thanksgiving table this year!
So on with my Thankfuls............
Thankful for our Son, Scott who just had his 45th birthday.
We went out to dinner at Longhorn and made a night of it
cause it was pretty busy so we had a wait, but the food and
service was great and then we came back and had cheesecake
and hung out. It was a nice evening!
Thankful that we were able to fix a problem with my blog
as some comments went missing and no one could leave
comments either. Google must have been messing around
Thankful for my wonderful and sweet Husband.
Monday, we celebrated 52 years of marriage.
Thankful for a lesson we learned or really relearned
about doing something new or different as far as
restaurants are concerned. " New or Different
can be highly over-rated!! lol
We decided to go to a restaurant that has been around for years
called "Bahama Breeze" for our Anniversary!
My back was still acting up so wasn't sure if we
were gonna go out or not, so we just hung around the house,
and had a nice brunch and spent time together reading and
praying, and then just went to dinner, and then came home and
watched that show I told yall about this week, "Restoring
America". It was very good.
Well the lesson relearned was.....stick to where you know
you will get good food on a Special Occasion. We have
been to this restaruant about 6-7 times over about a 30 yrs.
period, and we have never been happy with it, but you know,
we always think it's been a long time, so probably things
have changed!! It wasn't horrible but our favorite
part was the dessert.....and think it will now be on our
forever "No Go" list, along with a few others. lol
Live and Learn............
Thankful that they finally came today and picked up all our
neighbors hurricane debri. Cause they were worried about
it since we have the new storm coming. It was a huge
long pile of debri. They had told my neighbor that the
trucks GPS said our street had already been picked up,
so she called again and some of us other neighbors
called too. Fortunately, ours was picked up right after
the storm cause we had smaller debri and had bagged it,
so our normal yard trash people were able to take it.
Thankful that we got to keep our Governor DeSantis
and our Senator Marco Rubio here in Florida. Also,
thankful that the state of S. Carolina stayed or went
Red too, as well, as many other states.
Thankful we just got our porch emptied out again
cause of hurricane or tropical storm Nicole. Don't
remember ever having a hurricane or storm come
ashore this late in the season.
Note: I saw somewhere that it said it is the first
time in 37 yrs. we have had a hurricane hit the
mainland of the U.S in November.
Thankful for the gift of voting for our elected officials.
I feel it is our sacred privilege and responsibility to
get our there and vote for our values.
Thankful that we and our family and neighbors had no problems
during Tropical Storm Nicole. We slept thru most of it, and
didn't really have too much wind, did get some hefty wind gusts at
times, and we have power this time, so we are praising the Lord
for all of that!
Thankful that we happened to see during the last part of the storm
that a skinny tree in our back side yard had fallen over and there was
a branch on the corner of the back of our house, so hubby was able
to take the lopers and go trim that limb easily, so it didn't damage
our roof. That tree really needed to come down anyway, so
we were happy about that.
Thankful that we get to have lil darling for the day,
since she was out of school due to the Hurricane.
we will be doing some school work and having fun.
Was a good day!
Thankful my back seems to be back to normal
again, so trying to be good and not do anything
to mess it up again.!! Which is hard to know
what that is.......since I don't really know what
started it to begin with...........lol
Well, That's it for this week at cozy place.
This is the Birthday, Anniversary and
Hurricane Nicole Edition. lol
Hope you have a Wonderful Weekend
Love, Hugs and early
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,...
