Wow it's hot today!8:08 AM
We're actually going to be in the 90's today and I am assuming this weekend too, hence the pool being filled with water as we speak.
I am lucky because I tan easily so right now my hubby and kids are all jealous of me, they were commenting on how dark I already look just from walking to school every afternoon to pick Jasmine up, and it's great, but the only thing I hate are the marks left on my feet by the flipflops LOL
It's so funny because if I walk around barefoot it looks like I am wearing white flipflops, the little line is so prominent you can't help but see it.
So yesterday afternoon when we got home from school, Curt was already here and ready to go to the park with the kids, I usually stay home so that I can get stuff done in peace and quiet and without having to continually clean up after them....you know what it's like, you pick something up and before you know it's back out and a mess.
It was so hot and so nice outside though that I decided to go along, it was fun, I got to swing, something which I haven't done in years and I truly enjoy. Nothing like sitting in that swing pumping your legs and going higher and higher, you close your eyes and imagine you're 5 years old again just out enjoying a summer afternoon. It is very healing spiritually, all the stresses and the worries seem to melt when you're out in the sun.
We got back home and we were all tired and hot and starving so I had to make something fast, I decided to go with the Asian Beef Wraps and OH.MY.GOODNESS. They were absolutely delicious, Curt actually took some to work today for lunch, that's how much he enjoyed them. Not only are they quick and easy to make, they're light, they're healthy and they're so yummy, really, give them a try you won't be disappointed :)
While you're there check out my "Favorite Ingredients Friday" I'm sharing some picnic recipes.
Now switching gears to books, I finally finished my Fannie Flagg book and LOVED it, actually that doesn't even come close to how much I enjoyed this book, Ms Flagg is now one of my favorite authors.
I just started Pursued by the Shepherd by Karon Phillips Goodman, it's amazing, it's just what I needed at this point in time of my life and it brought tears to my eyes. Here's the great part, I am going to be giving away a copy of this book next week on my blog....I'll have the details for the contest up on monday so if you're interested and think this is a book you would enjoy (I think every woman would benefit from reading this one), check back next week.
Misguided by mistakes, muddled about priorities, alone in denial . . . life is forever found wanting until we're found by God! Exploring how women may lose their way, Goodman reveals that we can never stray so far that the Shepherd stops seeking us. Gain forgiveness for wrong paths---and guidance back to the Lord of green pastures.
Just below you can find my "Show and Tell" post, if you want to play along go on over to Kelli's blog and add your name to Mr Linky.
I'm leaving you with a look at my day, God Bless,
