Summerhills


Finished Summerhills =( 
Don't know what to read now! Does anyone ever feel this way? You have just finished one of the best books ever written and it is hard to move on and read something else? Its almost the same feeling you get after Christmas or a wedding. I just love the simplicity and the era of this authors books. Especially these last two I just finished. The first one is called Amberwell and then the second is Summerhills. If anyone needs a comforting and interesting book you would love these! The author is D.E. Stevenson and most of her books take place in England or Scotland during the 30's, 40's and 50's. She usually stages her stories before and after world war two. 

I envy all of you if you haven't read it yet!!!!!!

Finished with the old and on with the new!







I have completely worn out and used my wallet to its utmost capabilities! I loved this wallet too =( The flowers are so pretty =) Its just plain worn out and exhausted! And now I have purchased a new and hopefully long lasting wallet. This one is a little easier for me to stay organized!
Happy Memorial Day Everyone!

Searching for a house


We have been searching for a house right now when our housing market is really low. We have a friend realtor who e-mails us all of the bank owned houses. Not that I want to move again, but since we rent our house, we realize we are just throwing our money away, especially with the housing market right now. Since we live in Scottsdale, houses are usually really expensive, well, we found this house that is worth a great deal of money and the bank is selling it for about  half the price of its value. It is beautiful! So we are trying to figure out how we can make this investment work. We first started out just looking for a house that we could finally own, but now this is turning out to be a HUGE  investment! I'll update pretty soon to share what happens  =)

French Toast Doughnuts

These are so yummy! Ruthie and I felt like french toast or crepes tonight since we were the only ones hungry. We decided on French Toast because we looked up a recipe by Nigella Lawson. She made this recipe so yummy! I took a picture with my computer but unfortunately it erased it! And we already ate our French Toast Doughnuts! Bummer! They looked so yummy there on our sugary plates =) Try for yourself =) Also watch her video its not too long and you will want to try it on your kids!



I have been searching for my camera and I can't find it! Please pray that it will turn up. It makes me sick to think I lost it somewhere. I've looked at work and all over at home. The last time I remember having it was at home. =( Send a prayer my way if you all think about it =)

Thanks

AHHHHHH!!!


Today I had to take my bosses vehicle to the Honda dealership. I was told it might take an hour maybe an hour and a half, so smart me, I asked Marie to come with me today on her day off and we could catch up while we waited. Si Si played in the play area and we sat in there with her while we waited. Well, what turned out to be 1 1/2 hours became 4 hours!!!!  I felt so bad for Marie!!! But, the time went by really fast, because we were talking!! Obviously we had a lot to talk about! Trust me it was all good =) Si Si seemed to have fun as well, luckily I brought her some library books, and they had toys and coloring there. They also had water, popcorn, crackers and cookies. =) Thank you Marie! I sure hope she didn't mind!

National Day Of Prayer


Today is our nations National Day of Prayer. We really need it this year! Our church is having an all night and day prayer session that we are going to participate in. America is beautiful to me and I lover her so much. Here is one day that we can all join in together and plea on her behalf. Will everyone join me? 

Pray that

1. The people of America will get on their hands and knees once more.
2. That we will care about the happenings of this country, and not be ignorant any longer.
3. That the Lord would forgive us of our sins.

=) Have a wonderful day everyone!
