Daybook: 06.22.15

(Again, finishing up on a Tuesday ....)

For Today... Monday, June 22nd


Outside my window... a hot June day with sunshine - such a relief after the rains on Friday!

I am thankful... the flash flooding did not come near my property this time. However, on Friday, part of the town was blocked off due to rising flood waters.

I am wearing... purple print maxi with a with peasant blouse I found yard saling. It's so rare when I buy clothing at yard sales that actually works for me ...

I am reading... "Between Us Girls," by Sally John. Actually, I just finished it.  I only wish I could live at Casa del Vida ...

I also finished "The Furious Longing of God" by Brennan Manning.  It was very good and gave me a lot to consider. Most likely, I will be sharing quotes from his work in future posts.

In my garden... almost all my flowers are growing ...

In my kitchen... a quick hamburger skillet recipe as it had been a veryyy long day. Banana snacking cake rounded out the menu. (I find if I can squeeze in a dessert, then the troops are happier with whatever main dish I serve ...)

A favorite quote for today...

If you fail one day, just CONTINUE the next day
... Style N Season

So many times, we give up totally if we fail one time. Tomorrow is always a fresh start. Begin again!

A peek into one of my days...


One of my favorite things...

our ice crusher on our new fridge. It's the little things ...


From the board room... here's a couple pins I'm considering making this week:

Glad the flooding missed you. That must be nerve wracking!

I'm so glad you avoided the flash flooding! It was pretty scary for neighboring town where some of our family live.
Oh how sweet these two littles are! They are so yummy! Speaking of yummy! :) I printed off both these wonderful recipes and plan on trying them this week! Thanks for the wonderful tips!

Hi Jerralea! I remember those 'Sit 'n Spins'! Getting dizzy was never so much fun!
I passed up a maxi skirt at the Gap Outlet, and I've been kicking myself ever since. The are so cute, and in style. I bet you look great.
The last photo of the chicken recipe looked like cinnamon rolls! I'm sure the chicken is WAY better for you than that!
Hope you had a happy dinner :)
Blessings,
Ceil
