Welcome Summer

1. It's officially summer (in the northern hemisphere anyway). Which summer month is best and why?

Good morning!

Last week was full of a fun-filled week of Vacation Bible School.  The theme was Ocean Commotion-and sometimes it felt like a commotion!  There were over 200 kids and 100 adults each night.  I was with the 2nd and 3rd graders and averaged 37 kids each night!  What a blessing to see children worshiping God!

 Measuring a cubic inch--learning about the Ark.
 Love this little man with all my heart.
 Grandson and his friend-posing.  The headbands wore sold to help a 3rd grader who attends our church-fighting cancer.
 Hub and grandson.

 There has to be a funny picture at the end.
Grandsons posing.

Sunday after church, Hub and I drove to Boone, North Carolina. Just a beautiful, warm Sunday.  We walked the streets of this college town and did some shopping.  We saw this cute little pizza and brewery, Lost Province,  and decided to go in and grab a bite before heading home.
This was shrimp pizza.  Never had this before and I must say was different but good.
Not much a fan of brewery beer, but…

Wednesday Hodgepodge

Thanks Joyce!

1. If you could sit beside and/or jump in any lake in the whole wide world today, which lake would you choose and why?

Just because I have wanted to travel to Ireland, it would be Lough Neagh. 
2. What's your favorite 'fruity' drink? 
I like raspberry tea and Arnold Palmer.
3. I read a list here of thirteen things to do right now to simply your life. They were-

clean as you go, re-evaluate your relationships (cut toxic ties), unsubscribe (too many blogs and websites), de-clutter, write down your daily goals, reply to emails right away, forget multitasking, create a morning routine, re-evaluate your commitments (which hobbies and responsibilities are most important to you), say no, clean up your computer, and plan your day ahead
Which of the tasks listed do you currently find most helpful in keeping life simple? Which item on the list should you adopt in order to simplify your life this month?
I definitely have a morning routine-having coffee reading my daily…

wednesday hodgepodge-glad to be back

First, I am glad to be back participating!!!

1. I read here a list of 13 things you should do in June. I'm paraphrasing a little but basically...

Go on a road trip with your best friend, pick fresh strawberries, host a garden party, take a morning run, treat yourself to a flower bouquet, spend a whole day hiking, discover a new coffee shop, try a new ice cream flavor, read at least one book, visit a Farmer's Market, make a swing for your home, and visit a new city. 

Which thing on the list do you most want to do? Of the activities mentioned, which one holds the least appeal? How many on the list will you attempt in June? What's one thing you'd add to the list? Go on a road trip with my friend and visit a new city!
Least appealing would be hiking.
I would probably attempt at least 4 of these...I love discovering coffee shops, reading, visiting Farmer's Market, not a runner but a fast morning walker.
2. What's something you could do today to feel more peaceful?
