Thursday’s This & That

Around the house…  We just got home from Summer Rec and visiting my husband at his jobsite. I’m taking a little break before tackling the chores and clutter that are waiting for me. I put Vivaldi on the internet radio because it brings a sense of peace to my soul. 

Outside of the window… the sun is shining through a bit of humid haze. We’ve had only a tiny amount of rain in the last month, so the grass is starting to turn brown. I can hear some blue jay squawking in the distance.

In the kitchen… crumbs and various cups and silverware sit on the counter waiting for me. I may have to make myself a smoothie before start battle with the mess.

I’ve been reading… some books by Beverly Lewis based on the Amish culture of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I don’t read a lot of fiction anymore, but a friend gave me a few books and I have enjoyed their simple storylines.

I’m looking forward to… our Walking for Water event tomorrow! (You can read more about our event here!) Our initial goal was to raise enough for ten Water of Life filters, but we’ve already collected enough for seventeen.  Maybe the Lord is going to help us double our goal! If you would like to donate a little for our fundraiser, you can see our secure online donation page here.
