This was pretty much how it was all week--this is actually the Seattle forecast and we are a bit southeast of downtown, so add about 5 degrees to each of these days to get my house's actual temp!
Sunday Sermon: Colossians 1:24-29 (Jesus: The Hope of Glory)
Life lessons: My kids are growing up faster than I can blink and there is nothing I can do about it!
Favorite Meal(s): The Crockpot Cheesy Chicken
Treasured Moment(s): Kissing Austen good-bye Saturday morning as he was leaving on his 8 day youth group mission trip to Northern California. (It was also his 16th birthday!)
Simple Pleasures: Having coffee at Strarbucks with my best friend and our two youngest kiddos!
National: Former Press Secretary to President Bush, Tony Snow, died.
Local: A teen in downtown Kent was shot in the head and killed outside an Aarby's restaurant Saturday night!
Personal: Andrew went on a two day trip to summit Mt. Baker
Things I Read: The Book Thief, The Search for Delicious, The Monk Downstairs
Movies We Watched: None! Sadly too busy for that right now.
Talked with: Andrew called to tell us good-bye and he loved us on Friday night, before his mountain climbing trip began on Saturday!
Places We Went: Baseball games, Wendy's restaurant, Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle
Budget Savers/Busters Buster & Saver: GAS! (buster and saver--still way too stinkin' high, but a few cents less than last week.)
Blessings: My daughter and son-in-law. They called today and invited Sam and me to go with them to Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle. (Kerry stayed home to work on the closet)
Challenges: The heat--trying to be productive when I am too warm.
Accomplishments: Finished my first knitted washcloth and started a second one all by myself. Bound off the first one, and casted on the second one!
Family Happenings: Austen turned 16, Andrew is climbing Mt. Baker, the closet in our new room is progressing nicely...
