Monday Mish-Mash!

Well, here we are...Monday.  I don't think I blogged for an entire week.  Life has been full and busy and happenin'.

*Hubby is doing great, healing wonderfully!  I love him SO much...He is my HERO! :)

*It's hot...HOT...and HUMID...and HOT outside.  Just sayin'.

*We are adopting...sort of....we are adopting a Grandma.  Only she's never BEEN a grandma, but she deserves to be, so we are adopting her.  More to come on this. :)

*Our house looks like a hurricane hit it.  We've had a LOT going on lately, and there is just stuff disorganized everywhere...and I'm NOT use to that.  I SERIOUSLY need to get down to the nitty gritty and clean up my sewing/craft is BAD people, I'm am telling you....BAD!

*I cracked open a book last night...from 1947.  Yup, everything a homemaker needs to know about proper meal preparation...from what the HEM SIZE on your napkins should be??? to learning great tid-bits of info like "fat is good for energy"...OK....and how to properly pack a lunch box.
I'm loving it, it's absolutely fun to read.

*My garden is in GREAT need of clean up.  But did I mention it is HOT?  August is my most unfavorite month in Florida.  Seriously.  It is HOT....oh, I already said this, huh?  Everything grows like mad in this hottest of months and it looks like a scary jungle full of vicious man eating mosquitos....when will Fall come?  In January.

*I'm super proud of my son.  He's brave, and I'm proud of him.  He was awake when 2 mortars came in to their base camp.  He alerted everyone to wake up, and made sure they had all secured their weapons and were heading for the bunker.  He made sure everyone was out before he left. 

Mind you, he's the youngest, AND lowest ranking of 14 guys in his group and he took charge and remained calm.  I'm proud of him. :)

What are your plans for the week?

"Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and turn away from evil."
Proverbs 3:7
