Counting Our Blessings - LinkUp!

Hello friends!! I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day! I am so thankful for those who gave their life so we could live free! Please keep the families of those left behind in your prayers. Such a sacrifice for all.

49.  So speaking of Memorial Day, we had a lovely day! My son cooked out and it was so very yummy! He's become a wonderful chef and always comes up with something delicious! He cooked Bratwurst and hamburgers. I chose a hamburger because, now that I've had my surgery, I can eat hamburger again! Hallelujah!! Huge blessing!

I didn't think to get any pictures of people yesterday. 😕 I was so focused on just enjoying the outside and watching all the birds. lol  I did take some pictures of the deck because this year I decided not to try and keep up with real flowers in my pots. Last year I lost all my flowers to either bunnies or the heat. It was discouraging to say the least. This year I did something I never thought I would do. I went to the dollar store and bought fake flowers to put in the pots!

My flag is getting a bit tattered but I've had this flag since we moved here so treasure it greatly.

I'm really happy with my silk flowers! I think they look better than I thought they would and it's sure better than pots with just dirt in them. I'm going to really enjoy sitting out here and seeing all the prettiness around me.

I made my favorite pasta salad yesterday. I always use whole wheat (sometimes it's called whole grain) pasta. I like how it gives the salad a nuttier flavor. I put lots of fresh veggies, black and green olives, pepperoni, cheddar cheese, and finally a oil and vinegar dressing. It's so good and it's even better as the days go by and the flavors meld together.

So grateful for the blessing of my family and the blessing of those who have served our country and given their all!

50.  My hubby and I had our first date night in I don't know how long. For sure it's been over a year! We went to see this wonderful classic movie at the theater.

It was so fun! I love seeing the old classic movies in the movie theater the way they were originally meant to be seen! Plus, popcorn! I haven't been able to have popcorn for years before my surgery so this was an extra special treat. 😊 We had such a good time!  I tried to take a picture of us at the theater (and did) but I'm not good at selfies but here's the pic anyway. Not the greatest pic of us but oh well! lol

It's so wonderful to be living life again! My husband and I had a very hard year and we are enjoying doing things together again. I'm so very blessed by God and thank Him everyday for His blessings!!!

Blessings - Julie
