Four Words

M&M's. Premiums. Mint. Chocolate. Four words that have kept me going this week. Okay, that is probably not really the truth. But seriously, have you tried them? The M&M's Premiums have been out for some time now, but I hadn't tried them. I'm too cheap to pay $3.99 for a little box of M&M's. So, imagine my surprise as I was strolling down the cosmetics/pharmacy aisle at Kroger the other day. I stopped to check out their little "clearance" section and way down on the bottom shelf were several boxes of M&M's Premiums Mint Chocolate. Right below the pantyhose. Marked down to 39 cents! Let's just say I came home with a few boxes.

We got moved in to the rental house last weekend. It has been an interesting week.
The color of the living room is "Rusty Pumpkin." I don't really know what the name of the paint color is. I just know it is going to take some getting used to. It's not nearly as pretty as the little pumpkin in the picture. See the little "straw" bundle? My nine year old created that with some dried grass or something. I just stepped out the front door and noticed it the other day.

I've spent a small fortune on critter control in this place. That's all I'm going to say about that.

Speaking of critters, the guys killed a baby copperhead snake while raking and bagging 33 bags of leaves in the front yard on Saturday.

The garage door has a mind of its own. Sometimes it just opens. Nice.

We moved from the "sticks" into town and we now have poor cell phone/internet reception. Go figure. I will be lucky to get through this post before I get "disconnected."
Here is a little peek into our master bathroom. I think this entire bathroom could fit inside the tub of our old bathroom. No towel bar? No problem. An old floor lamp will do just fine.

And teal is no longer just an accent color. I bought these thrifted cups for our toothbrushes when we moved into the other house. They are almost an exact match to the tile that covers most of this bathroom.
I haven't unpacked much more than just the necessities so far. But the other day I was needing something to make this place feel more like home. I dug my aprons out of a box and tied them to this curtain rod. I know it doesn't look great, but they do help to cheer me up.

So does this sign. Where do you suppose this was originally posted?

How is that for a random post? I probably won't have time to post again this week, so Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I hope you have a blessed day with family and friends.

{“Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.”- Psalm 100:4-5}

I guess you can't say you have an uneventful life! Keep the smile on your face and in your heart. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! We love you!

I love that sign - I am a push over for "old signs"! It really does tip the imagination to wonder where that sign would have been used. Definitely somewhere that needed manners!

Vanessa,

Thanks for your kind comment on my post and thanks for not giving up on me and blogging.I appreciate your prayers.My pain is probably not the same as yours.........but pain in pain....and the need to trust Our Father is the same despite the cause of our pain. I know that you have been going through a difficult time as well. I continue to pray for you. God continues to amaze me in the ways that He brings others into our lives to offer His love and encouragement. Thank you again and if I do not "talk" to you again............have a Jesus filled Christmas.........and give that sweet girl a hug for me.

Blessings! Cindy
