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
