Still hot and humid. Most days triple digits. No rain in sight.
Awaiting news from DIL. My 16 year old grandson is hoping
to buy his first investment horse today. He plans on a late breeding if all works out.
I always have so much to read that I've decided to choose one to share with you here each week. The one I am looking the most forward to read. In another post I'll share What's on my Reading Pile. Today I am still itching to read . . .
Our ministry. We are able to serve at a boys prison unit.
It is a blessing every week to see them worship God.
I have been seeing it over and over in landscaping. It appears to be very hard. I would love to add one to my beds. I wonder if it comes in other colors?
Monday -- We call it Goulash ( I didn't make it a couple of weeks ago when I planned) Fried Okra, Salad
Tuesday -- Pan Seared Flounder, Homemade Mac/Cheese Salad, Bread
Wednesday -- Mixed Grill Kilebasa etc, Pinto's, Fried Potatoes
Thursday --Make Your Own Pizza's
Friday--Expecting a long week either Chinese or Eat Out
I want to make my own pasta. I saw an episode of Worst Cooks
last night and was again inspired.
I have a kitchenaide but no attachment so that is my hold up.
Maybe some day!
Strange though we have a brand new Kindle and it is slow too.
I am adding this to this section because I would like you my friends that have the same simple pleasure as I do...
I know you do! Please say a pray for me. Hopefully I can buy a new computer soon!

A Spoonful of Grace is a collection of 366 evening meal graces taken from all 66 books of the Bible and designed to provide meaningful exposure to prayer and the Bible at a most opportune time: the family evening meal.
The Scripture/grace devotions are inviting, can be grasped at several levels, and are brief enough (about two minutes) to hold the attention of hungry kids. Here's why:
- Each day has an application section called Grace Notes: ideas and quotes to further illustrate the message and stimulate conversation.
- Sundays are for Story Graces. These 52 devotions are a bit longer to afford the suspenseful, engrossing reading of stories such as David and Goliath, Daniel in the lions’ den, and Jonah and the big fish.
- Special Graces are celebrations such as Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays.
- Each grace:
- Supports discussions of God’s attributes and of faith-based values, offering moral examples like forgiveness, friendship, honesty, trust, even table manners.
- Creates curiosity about the Bible and ways in which Scripture can be applied to today’s issues.
- Demonstrates how the act of praying together lifts one’s own spirit; fosters praise; and increases mutual feelings of appreciation, gratefulness, and accountability.
- Teaches without overt instruction, similar to hiding extra veggies in the spaghetti sauce.
- Remind us that our food, as well as God’s countless other daily blessings, is a gift.

Same as last week. I had one word last week. Hot this week I am adding another word Humid. The Cowboy is already counting down the days till cooler weather. We've had some good rain showers. The plants are loving it!
Thinking about my week. Cooler weather. Gardening plans.
Wishing it was a little dryer to be out working in the garden.
I always have so much to read that I've decided to choose one to share with you here each week. The one I am looking the most forward to read. In another post I'll share What's on my Reading Pile. Today I am just itching to read . . .

I am thankful for
The Cowboys job. After 10 months he is back to making the salary he was prior to loosing his job last Sept. just a couple of weeks before we moved into our house.
We were talking last night and we were both thanking God for his provision for us. He was telling me last night that on Tuesday when he was paying bills he wrote out a tithe. We also are able to choose a charity to make a donation. We are thankful.
Weeds. Rocks. But it's getting better. I have fall green beans planted and pumpkins. On Saturday I prepped the area to plant beets and more green beans.
Monday -- Mexican Chicken/Rice, Salad, Pinto Bean Soup
Tuesday -- Tuna Casserole w/peas, Salad
Wednesday -- Meat Loaf, Mashed Potatoes, Grean Beans
