Thankful Thursday March 28, 2024, and Easter Decorating for 2024


Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

1 Peter 1:3 NIV

Early Easter Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you have a lovely Spring day,
and preparing for your Easter/ Resurrection
Celebration. That has been our week, and
today we are excited because our Daughter,
Son-in-love and furry Grandson dog are
coming in this afternoon and will be here until 
tomorrow, then they are going to his parents to
 celebrate his Dad's 70th birthday.

Pictures today are of our family room all gussied
up for Easter.  My family all know Easter is all
Jesus and His Resurrection from the Dead
but the lil girl in me loves bunnies and Easter eggs,
because they are just so cute, colorful and fun I 
can't resist them!!  lol

Thankful for our Governor Ron DeSantis.
He is such a wonderful Governor, and can hardly
stand the thought of when his time in office is over!


Thankful that I am not as sore as I was this time
last week, after my Fall........but I am still recovering
and finding bruises and soreness in other areas.
I found a bruise on my forehead which I was surprised
by, as I didn't really think I hit the top of my head
 that hard. Funny how the places that are
injured and hurt the most get all the attention and
when they start to lessen in pain and swelling
you start noticing the lesser ones and finding bruises
you didn't know you had.  lol
But I am definitely feeling better and on the mend,
but it's just taking longer than I would expect.


Thankful that I found some new sandals that were

just what I needed to replace the ones I got rid of

that I feel helped me take 2 falls in the last month.


Thankful for a guy friend of ours that came to vist

over the weekend.  We have known each other for

over 50 years.  He used to work with my hubby

and we met he and his (former) wife when we were

in our early 20's.  It was great to see him again.

One of those friends you kinda picked up where

you left off,  which is always nice.


Thankful that my hubby is so sweet to do all our

vacuuming for years now because I have a pinched

nerve that isn't painful unless I do something to inflame 

it.  I am good for about 1 room, but more than that

causes me problems,


Thankful that Easter dinner is all planned and

we went and got our ham and candies and stuff

and ordered a cake.


Thankful I have all our cards and candies ready 

and lil darlings Easter basket ahead of time.


Thankful I have our table planned, so when it comes

 time to set it It should go together quickly.


Thankful that I found a quick and easy recipe

for "Chicken Cacciatore" and made it .  It has

been 40+ years since I have made it.  Why?

I have no idea, because it is so good, and

really not hard to make.


Thankful that I remembered all the thankfuls

I had listed but this one.  I had my blog all ready

to post early this morning, but decided to change the

font (which I have done a gillion times) and it 

completely wiped out everything. Why?  I have



Thankful that the Drs. office called and moved hubbies

cyst removal surgery to next week. We really did not

want to do it today, since the kids are coming, but it

was all the opening they had at the time.  So we are

very happy about that......and it is only delayed

until next Tuesday, so that was good too.


Thankful maybe last, but definitely not least

is for Jesus and his Resurrection from the Dead

and the gift of eternal life that He has given to

us, and the wonderful changes to our life that He

has made over the years, which have only made our

lives better,  and for the Spiritual Blessings He 

has given to us as well, like Love, Joy, Peace, 

Patience etc.  What a gift and Friend we

have in Jesus.

Well, That's it for Cozy Place Today

Thanks for hopping by...........


Hope you and yours have a

 Delightful and Meaningful Easter

 with your family and or friends

Love, Hugs and 

Happy Easter Blessings,

Thankful Thursday, March 21, 2024, and Easter Table from the past

Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good; sing praise

 to his name, for that is pleasant.

Psalm 135:3 NIV

Happy Thursday Sweeties,

Welcome to Thankful Thursday,

Hope this finds you enjoying Spring at your house.

I have finally finished my Spring decorating and

now just able to enjoy it all.  Been another busier

than usual week here, and expect it will be this way

until looking forward to April!!  lol

Pictures today are from an Easter Table back in 2011

here at Cozy Place.  I figured if you are like me you are looking

for table ideas now, especially since Easter is so early this year.

If you would like more detailed instructions or to see

more pictures you can go Here.

On with my Thankfuls...............


Thankful all our Winter decor is packed away for another year,

and that I have all my Spring/Easter things unpacked now.


Thankful for our neighbors and their huge, gorgeous, Fucshia

colored Azalea bush.  We get to enjoy them every Spring,

and it is such a delight to look out our front windows and see them.

They are starting to fade now.......sad to see them go!!


Thankful that hubby had another Dr. visit this week, to see

about having a cataract removed.  It took us 2 months just to

get an appt. and they are gonna call us in the next few weeks

to set the appt. to have it removed.  That is a first.....


Thankful that our Son-in-love had some tests done as he

was experiencing some painful symptoms, and all the tests came 

back fine and he is feeling better as well.


Thankful for the "Better Together" Show on TBN.

We love watching it, and I almost always take something

away from there that is helpful to me. They have a lot of 

really wonderful ladies on there.  You can also find it online

at Better  or .BetterTogether.TV


Thankful we have the ability to go to church freely without

any obstructions or problems. Always good to be in the

house of our Lord.


Thankful we have a home, a car, food in the pantry and fridge,

a comfy bed to sleep in, and clothing to wear, and running

water and Air Conditioning. We are beyond blessed.


Thankful for the last 2 beautiful sunny but hot days.

Just gorgeous out............

Thankful we have another cool front coming through

 that will take us back into the 70"s.


Thankful I have most of my Spring/Easter

decorating done.  Hoping to finish in the next

day or so.    


Thankful I am finally finished decorating and

tweaking....was in the mood for more tweaking but

just had to quit, gotta get everything put away

and get the guest bedroom cleaned up since that

is where stuff was coming



Thankful we are having a sleep over with lil

darling Tonight,  it has been awhile, so looking forward

 to it.


Thankful that once again the Lord protected me from

being badly hurt. I tripped over something (that I was

gonna remove but just hadn't done yet) while preparing

 the guest room.  Completely forgot it was there, and

my sandal caught it and I fell face down but on carpeting,

 Praise the Lord. I am a lil bruised and sore but

nothing broken, and I am amazed my glasses didn't

get broken or at least scratched.  I am getting rid

of these Clarke Sandals I bought not to long ago,

as they are just to clunky and wide for me, and I 

really think that was the cause of both falls.

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

Happy you are here


Have a Beautiful Rest of the Week,

Love, Hugs and

Mid March Blessings,

Thankful Thursday March 14, 2024, and pictures of Birthday table

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

Jeremiah 17:7-8  NIV

Morning Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you well and enjoying late Winter..... knowing Spring is just  5 days away. It has seemed like Spring has already Sprung here, since it has been in the 80's already.  Hope you are having a good week, mine has been fairly good, I have just been really tired the last few days,  think it is from all the activity we have had since we got back from our trip. So yesterday I pretty much did nothing, but I did spend some time talking with our girl, which is always good for me.  

Pictures today are of our "Ode to leaves and trees Spring birthday table" for 3 family members. Since our house was still done in green, white  silver and gold for winter. It seemed sticking to green and white would work best. When I found these napkins, I wasn't that thrilled with them really, but they were the prettiest ones I could find, so felt like I was sort of settling, but once I got them home and started working with them, they became a very happy surprise after all.

This could also make a lovely St. Patricks day table with just a few tweaks.


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


Thankful for a nice evening out to dinner for Hubbies birthday at Carrabbas, Just the 2 of us. Family celebration on Saturday.


Thankful for a fun time making Banana Pudding for our birthday celebration on Saturday with lil darling. She worked right along side me, and did a great job, and it took all our restraint not to dig in, cause it did smell so good!!  


Thankful that I also got the Beef Stroganoff done today as well, it will taste even better tomorrow as it flavors through. I will just need to make yellow rice, caesar salad and rolls, and we will be good to go!! and set the table, half way there on that too, and had planned that already ahead.


Thankful that we have implemented a decision we made about our Card Shop today, and will let you know about it very soon.


Thankful for a lovely time with the family celebrating all the birthdays. Good food, Good fellowship, and a Good time....had by all.


Thankful I did my hair today and didn't have to do it tonight after all the festivities. Cause knew I would be a tired girl.


Thankful to be back at church today, and also to be able to go to lunch with our friends, as it has been awhile for one reason or another. We also got to meet their Son who is visiting from California. So that was a nice surprise since we have heard so much about him, very nice guy, much like his parents.

With the lights out!!


Thankful they moved hubbies Dr. appt. till Tuesday, which worked out so much better for us, since we home school lil darling on Mondays. 


Thankful for the great Science project  lil darling and her Daddy (our Son) did over the weekend.  Looked great and she did a great job explaining it as well.  Also had a good school day.


Thankful that I got all my Winter decorations down today, just got to get them put away now. Hoping the Spring things go up as quickly as the others came down.  lol

#11 and 12
Thankful hubby had his Dr. visit,
today, unfortunately, they didn't
drain it today, but they will remove
the cyst near the end of the month,
and gave him antibiotics to take
until then, to make sure it isn't 
infected when they do the surgery. 
Fortunately, it doesn't look infected
at all,  just leaking clear fluid,
that doesn't smell too good!!  lol
and Thankful for a nice early dinner at Cracker Barrel on the way home.

Thankful for a nice and restful day and a long conversation with my girl
via facetime and the phone.  We lost face time after awhile for some reason, but that's okay.....that
doesn't stop us.  lol


Well, that's it for Cozy Place

this week.  This is the Birthday


Thanks for dropping by

for a visit,  We are glad

you were here!

Have a lovely rest of the week.

Love, Hugs, and
