HodgePodge, Treats and Happy Thanksgiving!

Things are hoppin' but they are all fun things. The pink marble tile for my new bathroom is being installed (by my brother) and it looks mahvelous! Our son found it for us, 12 x 12 tiles for 50 cents a tile! Wow! He's the sultan of deal-finders! I'll tell more about the bathroom later, with pictures, I promise!

I got not one, but TWO awards from Sparky!!! They are above and below:

Aren't they cool? I am honored...

Kathy at Destination Sanctification and I, did a swap for our birthdays. Hers was November 1st, so I got her package to her right before. Mine is November 30th and my package came today! WOW, what a lot of lovely, darling, pretty smelling things! Soon I'll do a post just about the swap! (I'm starting to get a backlog - I still have to do our Sea World trip and the hymn meme! Soon, I promise!).

Well, I will of course be busy all this week, cooking, cleaning... and sealing marble tile, of course! So a very, very Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, enjoy your feasting and family and remember to Count Your Many Blessings. (There, Ruth, I worked a hymn in!) I don't know about you but I have soooo many to count! ( To all of you who live in places that don't officially celebrate Thanksgiving, don't feel left out. Just roast a turkey, invite your family over, and take a day to celebrate all the amazing blessings God showers you with all the year long. A day to say Thanks to Him for everything, and to really hold your family close to your heart - it's not just an American or Canadian thing when you think of it that way!)

(Update: I just got the Superior Scribbler award again, from Bob at Rhymes With Plague, a fun, informative blog I think you would like very much. I am thinking that Sparky and Bob must have seen my handwriting at some point, let alone my prolific doodling! Thanks, guys!)

Ah, we sang that hymn this Sunday and loved every word :-) Thanks to having some pre-Thanksgiving guests over this past weekend, the house is (relatively) clean and the groceries purchased. The cooking frenzy will begin soon! Enjoy your day and all the thanks to God that you'll share with your family.

Congrats on the awards! You certainly deserve them. :o)
We are preparing for our Thanksgiving feast. I'm going to share a receipe that my step-mom used to fix tomorrow. It's a delicious way to fix leftover turkey! YUM!
Have fun fixing up the house. I'll bet it looks super. You'll have to share photos when there's time.
CYA! ♥ ∞

Congrats on the well-deserved awards. I laughed at the hymn reference. And happy early Thanksgiving and early birthday.

May we all 'count our many blessings' as we celebrate with family and friends!! Happy Thanksgiving, and May God sent you a special blessing for being the encourager that you are!!

Happy Thanksgiving and early Happy Birthday!

Tracie, there is a reason that 12 x 12 pink floor tiles are 50 cents each and it's this: Nobody wants them! :)

Seriously, I hope your remodeling goes well and that you and yours have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving.

I had to laugh at your comment, Bob, about no one wanting the tiles. That's what all 3 of my sons say! but I think they are bee-ooo-ti-ful!!! They are REAL marble and everything! (Elegant, don'tcha know)

Thanks everyone, for your well wishes and I send mine back to you!

Congratulations on receiving three awards in one go, a Superior Scribbler you most certainly are! Having Thanksgiving, and have a fun time with your family. x

Sara said...

A Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving to you, too, Rosezilla.

Yum, pink marble....will you be showing us a photo? Just last week I saw a reference to pink marble on Mary's blog, Across the Pond...or I think I remember that's where I saw it. From her trip to France.

Congratulations on your award too!

Dear Rosezilla ~~ Congratulations on your new awards. And a belated birthday greeting for your birthday.
Glad you liked the meaning of life and also my gazebo with the garden setting in there. I am very pleased with it. Take care, Love, Merle.
