~ 99TH POST ~

Wow-weee! I can't believe this is my 99th post. I honestly had no idea when I started this blog what I was in for...I have made some really great friends along the way & we have already been through so much together. It has been incredible. Let's revisit a few things that went on around here @ The Cozy Kettle during the last 4 months.

We've taken long walks together

taken a break together ~

We've done craft projects:

~Pink Saturdays~

Gotta love my pink rainboots

~Remember Phyllis~

Rainy Saturdays~

We've had lots of food~

Mister's lasagna roll ups~ YUMMY

can't forget dessert

we've had ups~

& downs

We made it through Hurricane Ike~

our street....

Only to suffer the greatest loss~

My hero~

It has been the deepest hurt imaginable.

I miss you Poppa-bear... everyday.

we've been downtown.....

to the country~

we've gone fishing...

we've gone shopping~

I just love birds~

we've been through summer

I miss our flowers :)


a winter blizzard ( at least for this part of TEXAS )

But we haven't done it all~

not yet

I still have many more things to share with ya'll.


and sunsets~

We have even done a cartwheel or two :)

All of you have been an incredible gift in my matter how near or far you are from me. You all have a very special place in my heart...thank you for coming along with me in this journey called life.

To all my friends who have been with me since the beginning and to all my friends I've met along the way. I am eternally grateful for your friendship & your support.

My heart is full~

Hugs~ J.

Good morning, Jessica! Oh, congratulations! 100 posts! I'm so glad I've met you and have been traveling with you on your blog journey! Yes, get out in the backyard and do cartwheels. Heck, do 'em down your street!
Be a sweetie,

I'm so glad that we met through blogging, it's been a blast! Who would have known that you could make a friend and enjoy learning so much about them and yet have never met them?! We like so much the same, and those things we don't we seem to even out each other well (laundry for me, cooking and cleaning for you!). Congrats on the 99th post. It's taken me longer than anticipated to do that post but HOPEFULLY (fingers, toes, knees, and eyes crossed!, LOL) it will be finished by Monday. Thanks for being patient. Crazy busy here right now. Have a fantastic weekend! Cindy

Jessica, What a blessing you've been to me over these past few months. Isn't blogging just wonderful? To be able to meet so many wonderful people and they become an important part of your life is just a gift that is unmeasured. I treasure you my friend. I'm looking forward to seeing more and more from you..
hugs ~lynne~

I am so glad you started this blog. RMS was great, but there is so much more to offer here where we can write and post about what ever we want!
I feel like you are my next door neighbor...even though I am in Alberta and you are in TEXAS!
You my friend...have shown proof that everything in Texas is bigger...especially the smiles and the loving hearts!

Bridget said...

I had my 100th back in October. Isn't it amazing? Congratulations!

onlymehere said...

Forgive me but my senility is showing! I swear I posted my china cabinet but I guess it was on RMS! I'll take some new pictures and post them soon! I can't believe I never blogged it. There are glimpses of it in different posts. I'll see if I can find one in the next few minutes in some old pictures with the old camera and add them to this post. If not, I'll post new pictures soon! Sorry you've wasted time looking.

onlymehere said...

Okay I found them. They were in Kellianne's file bz they were taken on her old camera! I guess I better take more clear pictures some day! Sorry for the confusion. I have to tell you though, do you know I never see a sunrise anymore without thinking of you and your beautiful pictures? Have a great weekend!

nikkicrumpet said...

OH OH OH I love this post! For those of us who are new it was so much fun to see what we've missed. Your gardens are so beautiful! What a great way to look back...WELL DONE...and congrats on the soon to be 100. I'm almost there myself...just a couple more.

Nancy said...

Jessica, this is the best post! I want to know more about those las. roll ups! I think the world of you too! Blessings to you, Nancy

Shelia said...

Good morning, Jessica! Chloe Dawn fessed up about what she did and she appreciated your sweet words. Pets! We love 'em, don't we? Did you go out in the back yard and turn some cartwheels?
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Sue said...

mornin J, Please post the recipe for the lasagna roll-ups!!! Have a great weekend sweetie! xo

onlymehere said...

Hey I'm with Nancy, where's the recipe dear friend for your lasagna roll-ups?! LOL!

Linda said...

Hi Jessica, I loved the story about Sammy. I think rescued cats make the best pets because they are grateful and because we give them so much love!
Hope you try the potato salad and like it as much as we do!
It is C-O-L-D here...thinking summer makes it a little more bearable.

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Jessica, thanks for swinging by today. I not only wond the spoon but also a friendship. And those are so valuable.. I hope you're having a super Sunday.
hugs ~lynne~

Holly said...

Aw, so sweet Jessica! makes me regret not having met you sooner! Thanks for the overview though. Joys and sorrows~ that is life.

I'm real impressed with that cartwheel, girl! ;>
