Life is nice when you're Cozie

I’m baaaaaaack! Wowee, thanks for all the comments!  I didn’t expect to get that many.

My time in California was fun, and the weather was great.  I got to drive familiar roads, and see family and friends.  However, by the time the 11 days was up, I was ready to be home again.  Thank you to everyone who prayed for me while I was gone and during my plane rides.  

I went out there to help someone out and to attend a graduation, but I had lots of time to visit with people that I have known almost my whole life.  Here are some pictures for your viewing enjoyment.

This is me and Mrs. Kannady.  She is the lady that I talk about in THIS POST.


This is me and Mrs. Ristau with her great granddaughter.  I have known Mrs. Ristau since I was four and she is a dear lady.  I knew her husband too, who passed away when I was ten.  Her great granddaughter is a sweet little girl, and after I played with her for about 10 minutes she declared, “Coie, I like you!”….”I like you too, Tia!”……”You’re my best friend, Coie!”.  


No visit to California is complete without seeing the KESSLERS


Here I am with some of my California relatives


Remember the wedding I attended LAST YEAR?  Here is a picture of the bride and groom a year later, and with a little girl!


These are a few of my good friends—

Amy H. (She was the one graduating)


Brooke Steward…This is one funny chick.  She and I have the same type of humour and she cracks me up.


Kally Steward…This is Brooke’s sister, another funny friend


Me and my long time friend Bailey Gillespie.  We were both kind of braindead when we saw each other which resulted in senseless conversation.  This picture also shows the real jam I was in.  You see, my MOMSIE took my tweezers the day before I left and forgot to give them back.  So I was left with no tools to weed out the tangle on my forehead.  I have since attended to my wayward eyebrows.


Steward Family—This is Brooke and Kally’s brother and his family.  His wife’s name is Amy and I like her a lot.  She has always been very nice to me.  Don’t their girls look exactly alike?!


Well, that about sums everything up.  I did see more people but they either wouldn’t want their picture posted or I forgot to take their picture!  Whoops.


Children of the living God,

Come and sing, sing out loud,

Children of the living God,

Sing to the living God.

    Hey Coie! Sorry I haven't been over here in awhile. Sounds like you had a blast in CA – I'm glad, and glad you're home safe. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for linking back to the post on the lady who did the quilting class. I had read that post before, but forgot about it. That's a good reminder we all need sometimes. "Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others."

    A couple of years ago when I was on a mission trip, one of the couples chose a verse in Proverbs for each person on the mission team, a verse they thought described that person. It was meaningful and neat to look back on. That blog post reminded me of that. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope you're having a great week!

    Hello! Welcome back, Coie! Yes, of COURSE you got that many comments! What are you, like, one of the most popular girls on the blog site?! No, don't you DARE argue with me, Miss Modest! You ARE and you KNOW it! (You are also one of the prettiest!) As to your "Wayward Eyebrows" I studied them VERY carefully, no, really, I did!–I have this thing for studying people….maybe it's my Unusual Observance talents! So don't be afraid if you catch me looking at you for no particular reason, I'm just making an updated Identity Photo for my Data Control Search Panel. *giggle*

    As to the picture of us, I am looking away from the camera–aGAIN! Everybody and everything else is fine–and aren't those faces on my siblings Just Them? Seriously, Spiderboy and Emma make those faces ALL the time!

    Thanks for joining us on your visit, Coie, and may I say that I've always thought of you as one of the dearest friends I have the extreme privilige of knowing!

    Love you!


  9. Tag!

    I know you hat to be tagged, but I'm tagging you. You can get the questions on my blog. God bless! : )

  10. Um…

    Just a minute (wiping the tears from my eyes). Wow, I ams o glad, Coie, you had such a wonderful time. The reason for my tears is, not because I am jealous (cough), but because I am so happy you got to go visit all your friends!

    And even had time to send me an e-card just after returning!

    Thank you! I loved it, btw!

    I would dearly love to meet the Kessler's! They seem has fun as you Igs!

    Well, I guess I should go – I miss you all terribly – and I know I sound stupid 'cause I've only met you once but I do, truly!

    Love you always,


  11. How wonderful

    I just had to check in and see what fun stuff you got into while in Cali. So glad that you got to see so many wonderful family and friends. What a blessing!

    Oh and I finally finished my first quilt. Wow, I think I'm going to do it again before I forget everything I learned…
