There is more outside work to do (always work outside, kind of like there are always dishes to be washed) but that work has to wait until we get a cool down. However, two review books I've been expecting arrived yesterday so this is a good time to spend reading with the AC on!
Here, then, is my world this last week in photos...
You may remember I had planned to read through Anne Morrow Lindbergh's diaries this Summer. But I found it difficult to stop and start when a review book arrived.
Instead my new Summer reading goal is to read the books I have on the "desk top" (so to speak) of my Kindle App. I'll write more about the specifics next week for the link maker on the Widget thingy at Amazon is not working. Gasp!
Just so you know, I got all of these on sale at greatly reduced prices except for the Jonathan Edwards Kindle book... and it wasn't expensive, anyway. I may prefer reading books I can hold in my hands but I love how I can afford many books on the Kindle that I could not in paperback or hardback! All true Bibliophiles will understand and shake their head "Yes!".

A wonderful blog friend sent me a box of tea for the Keurig that she didn't care for. It is a berry tisane and my husband and I both love it. I added two cookies (just two mind you) and enjoyed it in the cute tea set Lois gave me.
Mr. & Mrs. Christopher had last Friday free at the last minute and texted to see if we wanted to be treated to dinner (pizza) and a movie. They knew how much I wanted to see San Andreas. We said Yes!
We don't get to see them often, even though they live less than two miles away. So we had a lot of fun eating pizza at their favorite place near campus and then seeing San Andreas. Loved it, loved it... did I mention I loved it! This is one of those movies that is fun to see at the theater because of the special affects and sound.
Typical disaster movie but I thoroughly enjoyed the subplots with the family. And how "The Rock's" daughter survives by remembering everything about emergency preparedness her dad had taught her. There is swearing off and on, especially when they are about to crash into something. But nothing you won't hear the Mall.
My rather large metal compost bowl was emptied at the compost pile this morning. The first time this season. It is that time of year again although we probably should have started sooner. But good enough is... good enough.
Flowers & a Glimpse of the Garden
|This is my entire deck garden at the moment. I may buy a flower plant to put on each of the two tables.|
|Will write more about the garden later! Here is a sneak peek (that is apple mint to your left).|
Once again, "helping me" while I create. As soon as she hears me sit down at the table, she jumps up. Sometimes I have to take her out of the Study and shut the door but most of the time she behaves herself. Kinda. Sorta.
She could use your prayers right now as one of her paws is greatly swollen again and she is limping. Dr. Lisa has tried medicine but it helped just a little in the past. So she needs prayer to feel better.
