It's hump Day!!!!

Just checking in with everyone.. How are all of you doing? We're fine here, just plugging through the heat..We have a heat warning for the next 36 hours... People are advised to stay inside and drink plenty of fluids...It's just too hot for words. I never thought I would wish for 85 deegree weather... That seems so pleasant right now. We did get a little rain this late afternoon but it made it so humid you couldn't breathe.
We went grocerying today and is it me or everyone, do the prices seem much higher to everyone? I noticed the butter I usually buy went up over 50 cents a pound. I noticed a lot of stuff was higher than it was last week. Let me know what you think.
I sent out prayer request this week for a Jeannette Lamb and she is responding to treatment. I just received an update from my gal Patty and she is doing better. I also heard of my friends daughter's mother in law who has cancer of the kidney's....We need prayer for her as well. They can't operate as she has a clot. Her name is Cindy... Please lift her up.. No one is exempt from the diseases and problems of this country. Folks, we have to prepare ourselves and be ready for the enemy. Pray up folks, time is drawing nigh...
Take care my pretties and I will keep this blog up to date as time permits.
Love, and blessings to all,

Mid Week update

Just a quick update....1. It's so hot down here even Royce can't stand it outside. Today's heat index was 108. Triple digits are just too much!!! I can't believe that I wished it were only 85. I never thought I would say that.
2. Been working in the shack this week... I worked today with Candace and she has shown me how to make a mini album out of lunch sacks. They are just tooooo cute now!! I copied hers, but did my own style. I just love them.. I have to finish the second one and then will post a few pictures.
3. Congrats goes to daughter Sandy as she worked very hard on a speech for school and she did complete it. And I know she did well when delivering the speech... I haven't talked to her yet but I know she had to ace that one!! C0ngrats Sandy!!!
4. Sounds like September is going to be a busy month. I may have company coming; my Mom and then my friend Patty from Ohio,... I hope they both can make it, different weeks of course.
I really miss my friends.
5. My trip in August to meet with Betty in N.C. has been cancelled ... we won't be able to make it.. pretty bummed about this one, but will survive!
Well, have a good rest of the week and take care, be blessed!

Happy Sunday!!!

Thank you all for reading and keeping up with my blog. I appreciate it. I miss all of you that are far away and wish that we could see each other more often. It's hard being so far away. You know when Bob died I knew it was the right move and time has proven that to be right. But it's still hard to be away from my dear friends.
The Fourth of July weekend was great. We had all the kids (that was in town) over for a picnic. We also had Ina and Garland over. We had a ton of food. I did ribs in the roaster and Clint cooked chicken on the grill. We had potato salad, peas, baked beans and sliced fresh tomatoes. I had made two no bake cheese cakes and they were delicious and lasted all about 10 minutes. They went over great. We had iced down a huge watermelon for the kids, but we were all so full we couldn't eat it...
Candace brought over some sparklers and pop its for the kids and they had a ball with them. A good time was had by all.
Tony and Todd are still in West Palm Beach working. I hope they get home soon. I think their work is winding down and hopefully will be coming home. We all miss them a lot.
I'm going to finish the cards for Jennifer this week. I have a ton of other stuff to do as well. I hope to get two days in the shack.
Sandy and kids are coming down this coming weekend. Candace is taking Chelsea's pictures for her senior year picts...I'm looking forward to her visit. We don't have any other plans other than entertaining them. Since I have the golf cart, I think it will go over big...We can ride it a lot.
The garden is about gone. We have the tomato plants still producing, but they are slowing down. Royce and I put up another bucket this past week, we just blanched, cut, and grind ed them in the blender then froze them. That's our version of tomato sauce.
Take care all of you and be blessed!!!
