Tablescapes, Crazy Daisies

 

In the midst of this incredible situation

I have truly experienced a Godwink or three

When my son, grandsons and I went to the beach

to self isolate in mid March,

I thought they would be staying for a week, and me, maybe two…

 

 

 

 

Then, as the situation escalated,

the boys mom agreed it would be better for them to stay another week

Creative homeschooling began

 

 

 

 

Week 2 turned into 3,

and as they were packing to go back to “the city” Easter Monday, their mom called

She said she would meet HHjr part way to get the boys so he could stay!

 

 

 

 

So he stayed another 2 weeks,

and then they decided she would keep them during the week to do the schoolwork

and he would keep them on the weekends,

that way when he started back to work, it would be a good schedule

 

 

 

 

Last Friday he went back to spend the weekend with them but was back here Monday

This is definitely his happy place too…

 

 

 

 

He was planning to do the same thing this week when all of a sudden he gets a text,

“I’m tired” she said…

“Why don’t I come get them and bring them back here for another week?”

“Great!”

 

 

 

So he left Friday and they were all back Saturday!

 

 

 

 

Lucky, lucky me!

 

 

 

 

HHjr picked up these crazy colored daisies on his last grocery run

 

 

 

 

He said,

“I figured you could do something with them and have some fun”

 

 

 

 

I happened to have the perfect thing…

 

 

 

 

Colorful crazy daisy napkin rings!!

 

 

 

 

I also added some colorful fish

 

 

 

 

Look at them swimming around the edge of this dish!

 

 

 

 

Again, all I can say is lucky, lucky me,

Not to mention these incredible sights we were able to see

 

 

 

 

The Navy’s Blue Angels are based in Pensacola, just about 30 miles east of our house

We often see them fly by as they practice along the coastline

You can hear them coming but you have to be quick, they aren’t visible for long!

 

 

 

 

The Air Force Thunderbirds joined them a few weeks ago

 

 

 

 

They practiced for their upcoming US air shows to honor our healthcare workers

and those on the front lines fighting the Corona Virus

 

 

 

 

Such an amazing experience, right in my own backyard!

If you get a chance to experience these shows, you will truly never forget the beauty, skill

and patriotic pride you will feel!

 

 

 

I hope I have brightened your day

and that you have many “Godwinks” coming your way!

 

🌼 🌺 🌸

    Jenna, how awesome! I believe in Godwinks, for sure, and you’ve been blessed. I saw the air show for healthcare workers on the news, but to see it in person had to be moving. You have terrific photos! Love the bright colors on the tablescape. Your son is very thoughtful man. You did good, mama.♥

    • Thanks Rita, he is truly a great guy, with a big bonus that he’s a good cook and can fix ANYthing! Lucky me 🙂 Have a great Mother’s Day week, have you been able to see any family?

  2. Jenna, this is such a happy post. I definitely believe in Godwinks, we only have to open our eyes. I know you have enjoyed your time at the beach with HHjr and the boys, I know this will stay in your memory. The table is full of bright and fun colors, I love it. How nice that you were able to see the air show in your own backyard, incredible! Have a wonderful week!

    • Thanks so much Pam, it’s been like a nice long vacation, and it’s so much fun to watch the home schooling! I have seen some crazy things from our porch, and seeing the Blue Angels is always a thrill!

  3. I am so, so glad you get to be with your family during this. It’s such a blessing. The time together is wonderful memory-making for everyone. And well done, HHjr, bringing you the bright, pretty flowers! I love them and those colors are YOU!

    Jenna, this most certainly brightened my morning! Your table is so pretty and happy with the daisies and bright colors. How wonderful to be able to witness such a wonderful air show from your own back yard! I definitely believe in “Godwink’s.” Take care, and I hope your week is a happy one filled with blessings!

    GodWinks are the best! And your time at the Beach has become wonderful with your son and grandkids! How wonderful!

    Your table is so bright and beautiful… cheerful… just the way I like it!

    And I have seen the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds several times… you are correct… they put on an amazing show! Your pictures are wonderful!

    Have a beautiful week my friend.
    PS… I made Strawberry a scones today… I followed your recipe except left out the oranges and pear, as I did not have them. Oh My Gosh they were delicious! Hoping to share some pictures soon! 🍓

    Yes, I’d say, lucky, lucky you!!! To have your son and your grandsons there with you is definitely a godwink. How thoughtful of your son to bring you such colorful, fun flowers to play with. Your sky pics are fabulous.
    I also loved seeing your May Basket painting! I hope you have a wonderful week!

    • Thank you Kitty, yes, I can’t believe how it worked out that my son could be here the whole 6 weeks and now going on 7! Plus the weather has been so nice, it has been a vacation, not a hardship. Have a great week and Mother’s Day Kitty!

    We were able to see the Blue Angels practicing once while on vacation. It was amazing to see!

    Oh I know how blessed you are! I am so happy HHjr has been there with you and the boys are back to enjoy early celebrations, lucky you! I know how much the boys enjoy being with you and enjoying the beach. Such pretty daisies and your scapes are perfectly summer ready. Jim had a business meeting in Pensacola a few years ago and I tagged along. We had a beachfront room and how lucky we were to see two days of fly over practice from the Blue Angels. I have similar photos, it was amazing! Look forward to seeing you on Zoom……….

    • Thank you Emily! Yes, if you’ve seen the Blue Angels you know how truly thrilling the experience is! And they are LOUD! I can’t tell you all the things I’ve seen just sitting on the porch! Looking forward to our virtual party today 🙂

    You are so lucky to be stuck at home in such nice weather! The flowers are so bright and cheery, it’s not as bright in sunny here in Chicago. We got a sneak peek over summer temps over the weekend but back to the 50s again today. Nice to see all your pics, gives me hope!

    God is good ! So happy for you! What a joy to have your grandsons and your son with you through this trying time. What a patriotic joy to see our military flying high! I would be screaming with joy at their high flight and wonderful loud NOISE! 😆 I have always wanted to see either the Blue Angels or The thunderbirds and this makes me want to all the more. I have an aunt and uncle that live in Pensacola ….maybe we need to make a trip down to visit them, hehe. Love your colorful, happy flowers!

    • Thank you so much Cyndi, the Blue Angels but on an air show here 2x a year, and we go by boat over to the bay where they fly to watch them, it is truly incredible. I hope some day you can have the experience! Thank you for your always sweet and uplifting comments!

    Oh I am loving the God wink! YES! I surely believe in them. Love the table. I actually bought some daisies from the “Fight for your life” section at Walmart. That’s what my husband calls it. I enjoy browsing the clearance section of the plants and flowers and find great joy into trying to bring them back to life. I bought 4 daisy plants and we planted them in the yard. So far they are looking wonderful and have some blooms. We shall see! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    What a wonderful sight to see the planes flying over Jenna. I’ve seen them on the news and I can only imagine how moving it is see them in person. Those daisies are so colorful and so YOU! Wishing you a Happy Mother’s Day weekend with your boys around you. ♥
