Summer has arrived. We have hit 100 degrees - fun and memories are calling. Before our recent news of rent increase (meaning our economy must be doing well???), causing our unexpected summer house move, I had planned on filling my calendar with fun summer events.
Well as the saying goes, When Life Gives You Lemons Make Lemonade...those lemons are flying in at the spend of my teenage son's fast ball from the mound, so time for lemonade.
Here I go - grab the computer and research all that is available locally.
Friday nights - Movie in the park
Grab a blanket, bug spray, and picnic basket to enjoy a movie under the stars.
Outdoor Concerts on Friday Nights
In our local amphitheater different venues lift up their voices and instruments in free concerts. - Good date night with Hubby.

Now that should start out the summer well. So between packing, de-junking and moving I am not going to lose the summer. You want to join me for a lemonade?
Thanks for all the wonderful scriptures, prayers and words of encouragement. I keep re-reading over and over again each one....you all are treasures. I am also preaching to myself through my blog posts this year....Big Girl Panties and others. God was preparing me. We are still house hunting. We have to the end of June to be moved. Benjamin's solution to this problem..."Mom just knock on that door and tell them we need to borrow their house for little bit!" He keeps me smiling.
