On the weather front. . .
High in the 80's and actually dry for a few days this week - woo hoo! We had storms yesterday, and we really need to dry up here.
On my bedside table. . .

We just watched the premier of Cedar Cove, and hope to watch it each week now.

Leftover chicken tacos (Mmmm!)

Going camping soon! (dry days ahead), getting my kitchen finished, seeing a filled pantry/freezer.
Homemaking tip for this week. . .
Here is my post on how I freeze sweet corn (off the cob):
Favorite photo from last week. . .
Lesson learned the past few days. . .
I can't say I myself learned any lessons, but our 16 year-old did. She uses acrylic nails and glue (I do not agree with, but Hubby does). She went to the movies last night, took some spare nail glue with her in her purse, and it leaked out onto her leg. It burned her leg, and it ripped skin off as she removed the glued pants from her leg. She now realizes the harsh chemicals that are in it, and will not be taking it along in her purse anymore. Maybe now Hubby will stop giving her money for them too.
On my prayer list. . .
My Son and Oldest Daughter, our family as we grieve the loss of another pet (if feels so uncomfortable with only one dog now), extended family, and special requests from friends.
Devotional, Scripture Reading, Key Verses. . .
1 Timothy 5:8 NIV
"Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than the unbeliever."
