Pretty....

 I've had this photo and the one below in my
INSPIRATION FILE 
for several year....


I've always thought flowers in bottles
was so pretty....






This photo is from the net...

just beautiful.....
from the net...

I kept thinking that I'd come across a cute holder with pretty bottles


so I could cut flowers from our cutting garden and show them off ....

Then, during a "clean out cabinets" day,




I came across this little bottle holder and cute bottles  that had held flavoring syrups for coffee and tea...


They all labels ...


Some bottles were empty...others had only a bit left..

So...
I washed the little bottles really good...
soaked them to get the labels off...
and
WALLA...
how cute this looks with the bright colored flowers...
and I was able to use something I already had so no extra money spent...
I just love doing that...xo

She has to be the sweetest and most patient big dog on the planet...
She's the kind of sweet dog that a little girl could put hats and shawls
 and dresses on her
and play with her all day long..💖

Out of the Goodness of their Hearts...

Our friends went above and beyond the call of duty
when we were going thru our hard times here at the Summer House.

These sweet people came in droves...
bearing food...
food of all kinds...




A delicious roast became our favorite...
Beef Hash.
Into containers and into my freezer for several future meals.


Casseroles ...
Chicken Spaghetti  so good, it just melts in your mouth.
Homemade Lasagna
Fresh sliced peaches
so many cakes and pies, cobblers and mounds of cookies and brownies.

 Four large boxes of GARLIC BREAD


Homemade Peach Cobbler to die for...
and Kathy divided it up and put into containers 
for some cold winter nights.

I'll not have to cook for myself for months.

They brought stacks of pretty paper plates and napkins...
jugs and jugs of tea
several pounds of coffee
rolls of paper towels
cartons of bottled water
taco platters 
so many things, I can't even remember all of it.

To know that we have people around us that care this much
makes my heart beat faster and, OOO, how thankful I am.

Our family had such good meals all thru the time Mr. Sweet was with us.
He didn't eat much in his last days...
always asked for
biscuits and sausage gravy....his favorite. 

I made biscuits and gravy this morning 
but when I realized I didn't have sausage,
I just busted out crying.......

Since I use my blog as my Life Journal,
I am closing comments for awhile.
I just don't feel like visiting
but I want to continue posting...
at least for awhile.
Love to all.
