This n' That Thursday...

Hmmm...what to say.  :)  My heart and mind have been on overload for a while now.  I sit down and think of posting, but just can't seem to put words to "paper".  So, I'll do a this n' that...they're easy enough, right? :)

Please pray for my husband today (specifically this evening) details needed, God knows what it's for....thank you!

A couple of weeks ago, we had a nice 2 day getaway...much needed and very fun.

Daytona Beach...

Trusty Starbucks!! :)

Lighthouse at Ponce Inlet...
Good words... 

This is the only way leaves change in central Florida in the "Fall"...
usually we have to wait until January. :)

Special thanks for Kim for coming over and playing "cookie decorating" with me. :)

This was scrumptious...
Pioneer Woman's Chicken Cacciatore (my way, lol)

...with the delectible sauce! Oh yum!!!

So was this...
Pasta Fagioli - I made so much I shared 4 jars with 2 neighbors!  :) 
You can find this on my cooking blog...  :)

I'm trying to craft, though I've been out of sorts with creativity today...I did manage to make a really cute "thing" for my best friend...and even one for me... :)  Can't show pictures yet, because I haven't given it to her!  But, wow, they are really adorable!!!

I've been soaking in God's Word and it feels so wonderful...thank you Lord for blessing us with your Word, that we can go to it for wisdom, guidance, comfort, strength and hope.

I miss this boy...

Things have taken a strange turn with our sweet elder friend Mary.  Please pray for her, and for us in finding out how to best be there for her.

I've been craving Pumpkin "stuff"'s the Fall thing...even though it's hot and humid and I can't decorate my front porch with pretty pumpkins because they'll rot in 3 days...sigh...I do love Florida though.  Wanna know why?

Because it's the end of October, ..

and guess what we did last weekend?  :)

(how about that "boat hair"??)

Gliding down the river....glassy water at sunset...beautiful!'s Florida...gotta love that!

I'll finish with this...

Can you say S P O I L E D??????

What a Ruff Life! :)


  1. You are such a tease. LOL! I wanna know what you made. I'm sure whatever it is, it's beautiful and I'll love, wearing it? Using it? Looking at it? Smelling it? Throwing things at it? LOL!
    You know I love you my BFF.
    Let's get together on Saturday even if Lyndsay can't and maybe do fun Fall stuff with the kidlins'.


  2. What great pics! Love the boat hair! Definitely too cold here! It is 42 presently although going to get near 61 today. LOL!

    Love the stair pic and the pic off the front of the boat! :)

  3. I have missed you!! I too have been out of sorts and haven't posted much. Just too much going on with life and in my heart right now. Maybe I would be better off writing a novel instead of a post!! LOL!!

    Still been wondering and praying for Mary. Sure wish it was warm enough here to be out on a boat. Love the picture!!

    The picture of your son brings tears to my eyes, knowing I will be in the same boat again soon.

    Love you my friend!!

  4. So much stuff in one post friend!! Your food pics look delish! Will definitely be praying for you and your family - and the Mary situation too.

    Glad you had a nice getaway...and Starbucks!! Prayers and hugs my friend! :)
