Sunday Salon, June 10

New hanging basket for a shady spot on the porch.
Weather today... Sunny after morning clouds, and cool.

Yesterday we picked up daughter #2 from college and moved her out of her dorm.  She is home for three weeks and then off to school in Italy for the summer.

Today I went to a graduation party for the son of an x-neighbor. I attended with a current neighbor. I guess you could say it was a neighborly day.

I'm reading: 

  • The Butterfly Clues by Kate Ellison. It is a YA mystery. Hhe main character, Lo, has OCD. 
I'm listening to:  
  • Peace Like a River by Leif Enger. I love this book.  It is my third time listening this book.

Book finished this week: 
  • Day After Night by Anita Diamant---Set in Palestine in 1945 before Israel was a country. It is interesting and so well-written. I listened to this in the audiobook. I highly recommend this book in this format.

Scripture lesson in church:Proverbs 3:5,6  "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight."

I'm praying for: My energy this week as I am dealing with heavy textbooks every day, all day.

Around the house: We bought several beautiful hanging baskets for the porch and deck area.

From the kitchen: Spaghetti and sausages with foccacia bread purchased at Saturday Market.



  1. Following you from "The Sunday Salon" group on FB!
    Im enjoying looking around your blog!

    Have a wonderful day!

  2. Love the hanging basket and the fact that your daughter will be in Italy this summer (so jealous!)

    We did textbooks last week and boy was I tired every day. When they go digital, won't our jobs be different?! I hope the week is going well for you!


I look forward to your comments and interactions! Join in the conversation.
