Toes and Pine Cones

"But someone will say, 'You have faith and I have works', Show me your faith apart from your works and I will show you my faith by my works,"
James 2:18

Today, I have a mani/pedi from some 
special Spa Helpers,
Ila May and Lulu!

Their family has been learning what, 
why and how to serve others.
Lulu and Ila May came up with this ideas all by themselves,
To Serve Grammie-goo

What a special privileged to be the one chosen. 

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."
John 13:34-35

I was pampered with iced water, 
flowers, a decorated 
bathroom, fresh towels,
 a spritz of perfume, 
by two of the cutest aestheticism, 
this side of the Mississippi!

I now have the most colorful fingers and toes.

And now for the Cones...

 We've been having troubles with
 our neighborhood cats,
using the front garden!
Not a pleasant way to greet guests.
 I read somewhere that pine cones will stop
the cats from walking in the garden.
I paid our grandchildren, a penny-a-cone.
Look how much they picked up.

When I came home the other day,
 this huge bag of pine cones
 was waiting at our door.

Our Mail Delivery Lady
 brought these to me.
A few weeks ago she asked me about
why I had cones in the garden.
She said she had pine trees and lots of cones
and would drop off some. 
Today, she did.
She left us a cute note in our mailbox.

I thanked Monica with a bouquet of roses and told her
that she will be "famous" because of her thoughtfulness.
 will go on my blog.
I let her know that I was going to blog about her.
She asked for the name of my blog.
So... Hi Monica!
 My garden is beautiful and the cones are working.

I love living in a small town. 
People like to help/serve others.

"So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially those who are of the household of faith."
Galatians 6:10


  1. I commend your daughter and her hubby for taking the time to teach the children about giving! How sweet of the grand girls to have pick this special way to serve Gramma Goo.
    Let me know if the pine cones work!

  2. How cute the girls are! And so thoughtful to pick you to be the one to serve. I know you enjoyed it. I can tell from your face. Speaking of thoughtful what a great gift from Monica. Tell her she truly has become famous -- all the way across the country!

  3. How fun to be pampered by these sweet little girls.

  4. What 'sweetness'! If every kid had grands like you what a difference it would make!
    I had no idea about the pinecones....I don't care for cats in the garden. Mothballs are very effective but not nearly as attractive. One can only have so many marigolds, as they aren't my favorite but said to repel cats. We do have a lot of pinecones around here. Yes, living in a small town is pretty nice.

  5. Summer memories are so special.

    Good tip with the pine cones.

  6. Awe, what a precious post! Nothing like the grands! One of my granddaughters loves to do pedi's! We have lots of pine cones in the fall/winter and use them as a fire starter when we have building a fire outside. It make a nice starter and I do love me an outside fire! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  7. Those are the cutest spa attendants I have every seen. Have a wonderful weekend.
