Happy Monday! Our weekend was really nice and pretty low key which is the way I like it. I hope yours was good, too. Just a few random thoughts today...
*It is hot as blue blazes here. Not only is it hot, but the humidity is about 1000% and it is just not fun to be outside right now AT ALL. I tried to go out and sit on my porch for a few minutes last night and I just couldn't do it. I love summer, but I'm hoping it will cool off at least a little before too long.
*Steve is now a Big Brother. He has been assigned a Little Brother through the Big Brothers/Big Sisters organization here. Saturday night we took him out to one of our favorite Mexican restaurants and we had the best time. He is so cute and funny. Steve took him out last week to hang out and this week he asked if he could meet me. Haha! So I was happy to get to meet him!
*I have been reading this book...
I am about half way through it right now and I am really enjoying it. It is challenging me and I like that!
“Sometimes people will commend a book by saying, ‘You won’t want to put it down.’ I can’t say that about this book. You’ll want to put it down, many times. If you’re like me, as you read David Platt’s Radical, you’ll find yourself uncomfortably targeted by the Holy Spirit. You’ll see just how acclimated you are to the American dream. But you’ll find here another Way, one you know to be true, because you’ve heard it before in the words of the Lord Jesus, perhaps most forcefully in the simple call ‘Follow me.’”
—Russell D. Moore, dean, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
The author of this book, David Platt, grew up in my dad's church in Atlanta...Briarlake Baptist. It is exciting to see what God is doing in his life!
*When I woke up on Saturday morning, I had broken out in about 8-10 of these bumps all over my back and stomach!
What on earth? They itch like crazy, but I don't have them anywhere else. Steve has one on his back, too. They are different than mosquito bites. We haven't gotten any more and they haven't spread. I have no clue what they are, but they are driving me crazy. I have been using calamine lotion and hydracortisone to help stop the itch. ????
*I made a Roasted Corn and Tomato Tart today that I found on Meredith's blog. She had seen it here if you would like the recipe. It was really good. I used some of the corn and tomatoes I had gotten at the Farmer's Market this past weekend.
*Laura is my creative writer child and my guitar player. She cracked out her guitar this afternoon...a sound I haven't heard for a while, so I had to take her picture.
Then Ashley came down and got on the piano. It's fun listening to them play together!
*Ashley and I are going to meet a blogger friend on Wednesday. I will tell you more about that soon. We are really excited!
Hope your week is off to a good start!
