♥ My Tardy Valentine ♥

So it's me again, late to the party, as I have been so much here lately.

It's been a month since I've last posted but wanted to get a quick one in 
to tell y'all that I am still alive and kicking (for the most part)
and to wish you all a Happy Valentine's Day!

Jim and I have been keeping the roads hot in these parts lately (between the monsoons of rain)...
making a few planned and unplanned trips to NC and even SC.
In between our two trips to NC, we took an unplanned and very quick trip to SC.
A very dear, old friend of ours unexpectedly passed away in his sleep.
I've known him since I was a teen...he was "Cousin Jimmy" from West Virginia
when his Aunt Thelma lived across the street from me growing up in Ohio.
We went way back.
Jim and he worked together in Ohio as well and wouldn't you just know that the Lord
placed us all together in the same town in NC...and even in the same church!
His dear wife became one of my besties and we worshipped together for many years.
They had relocated to SC about a year ago after retirement to live close by to their younger grands. Kinda like us. 
We just never know what tomorrow will bring, do we?

Our winter here has consisted of nothing much more than rain, rain and more rain.
To say that I am pretty sick of this weather is a huge understatement.
I must be perfectly honest and tell you that today the sun is shining brightly...but brutally cold!
I am biting at the bit to get out and return to my walking and exploring Haywood Hollow.
These poor little measly muscles of mine need help, y'all!

But despite all the rain, on those rare days when the sun decides to come out from behind the clouds,
you can rest assured that it will leave behind a treasure to end your day.

So who says Valentine's Day flowers always have to be red or pink?


RV living...gotta love it!
(maybe...maybe not)

So stay tuned...exciting new updates coming soon!
Here's just a little hint....

💗Love to all!💗


  1. I'd sure love to see some sun even if it is cold! : )
    The flowers are so pretty.
    Sorry to hear of the death of your cousin.

  2. That sunset is awesome! And call me a romantic, but I see a heart.

    Miserable weather that refuses to quit is enough to mess with my sanctification. Hope yours rights itself. So are we all in this cold snap? I know I am.

    The flowers are beautiful and just the right size bouquet for the RV. Someone was thinking! And what’re those pretty little things beside the bouquet, hmmmm?

    So sorry about the shock of losing a dear one. It is never easy.

    Come back soon and tell us more! I won’t speak for the others, but I am terribly nosy as you know.

    1. Uh...okay Vee...I'm not sure I am seeing the heart. Help me out. :)

  3. Sorry to hear about your friend, Debby. Exciting about your house plans. Keep us updated.

  4. Fun to see that elevation of your future home. Sorry to hear about Jimmy. Hang in there, the rain will cease sometime. Our Seattle folk are tired of it, too.

  5. Pretty flowers and those scrumptious looking strawberries? YUM.
    Happy Valentine's Day!

  6. A wetter winter I cannot remember. Yep, that relentless rain is here too. Sigh. But, as in your corner, the sun shone today! What a treat!

    It is so good to see you pop up in my feed this evening . . . it's always wonderful to hear from a friend. So sorry to hear of your "cousin"/friend's passing so suddenly. I don't think we're ever "ready" to say goodbye to one we love.

    Your Valentine flowers are lovely. No need for pink or red, especially when you have those yummy red strawberries to accompany! I am glad you closed the post with a peek at your new home! Exciting!!

  7. SO sorry to hear of your dear friend's passing. Oh, that is so sad, especially when it is sudden like that. I tell you, you are right, we just never do know what a day will bring forth. When we get some age on us, life seems so much more fragile and precious and uncertain. God, help us all. I LOVE your Valentine's flowers! Oh, those photos are just so pretty and homey looking. I hope you are feeling better, physically, and I am continuing to pray for you, my friend.

  8. Im so very sorry about the loss of your dear friend. Yes, one never knows when our time comes, do we?
    Your flowers and your chocolate covered strawberries are the perfect Valentine treat. I’m looking forward to read more about what’s going on! Happy Belated Valentine’s Day! ❤️

  9. Welcome back. Been praying for you and hoping you are doing okay. Love the pictures. Love the flowers. Love the elevation of your new house. I know you can't wait to get started!!! I am sorry about your friend who passed away so suddenly. It is hard to lose close friends. I know. I've lost several this past year alone. Heaven is going to get full if it keeps up at this rate. Truly I am sorry and will pray for Jimmy's family and you! TAke care and God bless you and keep you healthy and strong and safe.

  10. So good to see you posting again. I've slowed down lately myself. What a sweet arrangement and lovely colors. And, I am so excited for your future new home. I love the preview and can't wait to see it actually happen for you.

  11. Beautiful pictures dear friend. I am praying that you get some SUN soon! The weather here has been crazy to say the least. Warm one day and cold the next! Granny used to say this kind of weather was what made everyone sick. Of course my oldest daughter said that was an old timer saying....not so sure bout that! LOL! Hope you are feeling better. Love you. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  12. That is such a pretty flower arrangement. Sorry about your friend. We sure could use more rain this way in So Calif.

  13. So sorry for your loss. never easy to lose such a good friend. Loved seeing the sun set such an amazing photo. Looks like some exciting plans ahead, wonderful times.

  14. Oh, Debby, your plans are beautiful! I can't wait to see! Praying for you daily. Glad to drop by today.


Thank you for stopping by today! Your sweet comments are such an encouragement to me.
