We spent time studying, praying; both individually and together and sharing. We also did a little sleeping and goofing off. We left, tired and a little hungry, but refreshed and happy.
So - these are for you Melody; a few of my favorite flower pictures. I'm praying for you and your family as you go through this time.

She always comes in so very smiley,
It's only because she has the life of Riley.
We all know she is good at vacation,
every other week she is traveling the nation.
When others push on like an upstream barge,
She's sitting home, living large.
As we task and toil to take care of the mess,
She's sitting back, relaxing like a princess.

Today's Works for me Wednesday post is about how I handle owners manuals. You know, all those booklets that end up being tucked in several places, and then when you have a question about your mixer, vacuum cleaner, washing machine... you don't know where you put the book! I got sick of this and a few years ago went out and bought this folder. It is roomy, with quite a few accordion type slots in it. It also has a large separate section in the front, that I use to put the spare pieces that sometimes come with these items, such as a new belt for the vacuum cleaner or extra screws... I keep this in a closet in my office/scrapbooking room and now when I need to find something out about one of my appliances, I know where to look. If you want to see more ideas, visit Shannon at Rocks in my Dryer.

Look at all those apples! I bought a bag of Honeycrisp apples, which are arguably the best apples in the world, right Megan? I also got a gallon of wonderful apple cider.

There is a large river that flows around our township.
As I said, the area is really growing. We have many new developments and businesses being built. Here is the Walgreens that will soon open.
