When It Rains and Random Things

Hello Sweet Friends

It has been a crazy few days
We Finally got some much needed rain
My yard is SO happy

My pool is a mess because
With the rain came a huge wind/dust storm
But I'm thankful for the rain
So, I'll just clean the pool

I picked up a couple of goodies at Goodwill on Tuesday
(Senior Day)
For $2

I love picking up little goodie bags
That the girls can use for crafting days

And I just couldn't pass up these s/p shakers
50 cents during the Christmas in July sale
Love them - or will past them along
Just too cute!

I had My 3 K's on Thursday
Can't believe it's the last Thursday of summer break
They head back to school tomorrow

Then it will just be K~Baby and I
I let the girls make cookies this past Thursday
I just stood back and took photos
I read the directions and let them do the rest

They very sweetly took turns adding ingredients
And mixing the dough

They have all grown up so much
I'm forever thankful for all of the Thursdays
God has given me over the past 12+ years

Working together

For a happy and sweet result
And yes, I let them eat several

Here they are in their ready for school T-Shirts
I miss them already
But, they do just live down the road

And then there was this
Matthew has been experiencing pain in his abdomen since Wednesday
Lower right quadrant but I knew it wasn't appendix
Because that ruptured 15 years ago

Finally decided to take him to ER on Saturday AM
And again on Sunday AM
With a final diagnosis of Epiploic Appendagitis

Basically, the fatty tissue left behind after his appendicitis
Has twisted and is causing severe pain
The doctor and surgeon both say it will eventually die
And absorb into the body
In the mean time
Mega doses of antibiotics and some pain medication
We are hoping he will be as good as new in a couple of days

They say surgery is elective and not necessary
I'm hoping they are right

Thank you for your continual prayers

By the Way
My BIL is doing fantastic after his triple stent surgery
And heading back to work tomorrow
God is More Than Good

I pray you see Him at work in your life
Praying for a Beautiful Week Ahead


  1. What a treat to be able to spend so much time with your grandkids. Can''t believe they go back to school this soon in August. Wow, where did the summer go?!

  2. Goodness, I hope Matthew will soon be feeling much better.

    Glad you've had such a great summer with your three K's.

    Have a wonderful week dear Cindy ~ FlowerLady

  3. I hope Matthew is feeling better soon. Oh the Grands are so cute. I have Tiger every afternoon this week and next Monday he starts Kindergarten! Oh my! Summer is coming to an end.

  4. Sounds like you had a wonderful summer with your sweet little ones. Their cookies turned out lovely, I'll take just one please to have with my cup of tea, thank you.
    Praying that all goes well with Matthew and the doctors are right.

    Enjoy your day~`

  5. Isn't summer special when you have little ones? I had mine make banana pudding one day last week and it ended up with very few Vanilla Wafers because they kept eating them and feeding them to Bella. LOL Hope Matthew continues to improve and the situation does take care of itself. Praying for you both.


  6. Dear Cindy, love seeing the girls-what blessings granddaughters are! Praying for Matthew. May your week be blessed dear friend.

  7. Fun memories with your grands. I miss having my time with mine. She didn't even want to go to the movie with me last week :( Never heard of such a thing with Matthew. Good that is will be gone by itself. God is Good all the time is right! I just need to open my eyes and see it.

  8. Cindy so sorry to hear about Matthew. How horrible to be in pain like that. It is always something!!!! Glad he is hopefully going to be better on the meds. Glad your BIL is doing so well too. The K girls are adorable. Wow back to school already?!!!
    Have a great new week.

  9. Cindy, I pray that Matthew is doing better. Sounds like he has been in terrible pain. You are such a fun grammy and I know the girls just love you!! I always check the craft isle out at thrift shops. I've found some fun things.

  10. Dearest Cindy, please know that Matthew will be in my prayers...I am so sorry he is going through such pain.

    As always, I enjoyed seeing photos of your precious grandchildren. It looks like baking was an absolute delight :)

    Much love to you!

  11. Hi Cindy, I so hope Matthew recovers and feels better soon. My prayers are with him!!
    Looks like fun at your house and those grands are having way too much summer fun before going back to school. You are such a talented and fun grandmother. Great thrifting finds too.
    I think I'll make some cookies.
    Blessing to you sweet friend. xo

  12. You know, it does seem like when it rains, it more ways than one! I am sure that was quite a scare with glad they expect him to recover. What better way to please those grands than to bake some cookies!!

  13. Beautiful kids and I know what you mean about the Thursdays. For the past eight years, I have had the children at least once a week and sometimes more. School is starting up and those times will be over until next summer. The times they are a changing and I can't stop it.
    Wow. That is something about your husband. So very sorry and praying he will recover quickly. And yes, God is always good and yes, He is working in my life.

    1. And the kids are gorgeous and the cookies look delicious.

  14. Hope Mat is feeling better soon. It seem to be raining here too with our remodel from hell and sometimes I think it will never be over. Your grands are adorable!

  15. I hope Matthew will be doing better soon. Your girls a adorable ♥
