Counting Our Blessings - LinkUp!

It's been such a week full of blessings here! How was your week? I hope it was full of blessings, too!

69. We had such a wonderful 4th of July! We didn't do anything real elaborate but it was special to me. :) We had steak (which is quite rare for us!), pasta salad, green tossed salad and apple pie for dessert. I finally learned how to cook steak properly after years of cooking it like shoe leather! lol It was absolutely delicious!

We also watched this

I loved it! In fact, my whole family loved it! Then we sat on our deck and watched the fireworks. Such a nice day!

70. I have been searching for a new small lamb chop toy for Mitzi for months. I have found large ones but never any small ones. The other day I went to WalMart with my son and decided to check again. They had two of them! Yay!! Here is Mitzi with her new Lambie!

Here she is sleeping with her new toy.

She has had a little lamb chop since I first brought her home and has always slept with it. I could tell she was so happy to have a new one.

71.  I've been taking a break from my cross stitch and working on my Christmas felt banner again. Here's where I'm at so far.

It's probably hard to tell exactly what this is but that's a stable and it will have the Holy family in it. I love the window, don't you? Here's a close up...

I've always enjoyed doing these kinds of things and find it to be a very relaxing. Hopefully, I'll have a lot more done by next week to show you.

72. My biggest blessing has been all the lovely and encouraging comments you have left me on my blog posts where I have shared my health issues. I can't tell you how much this meant to me. Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know you're thinking of me and praying for me.

Now it's your turn! How was your week? Please share on the linky below or in the comments.

Blessings - Julie


  1. I am glad you had such a nice week Julie. I am praying for you. I was so happy to go to the parade with the family, and not get a severe headache.

  2. What a lovely weekend. And I adore Mitzi! Our little Emma has a Lamb Chop toy, too!


Please leave me a message! I love hearing what you have to say and look forward to your comments.
