HI! thanks for the visit!

You've got a great list! Summer must be beautiful there. Summer has already passed here in Thailand, but it's still hot here except for occasional rainshowers.

Have a blessed weekend!

Cell phones, I must admit that there are those days I want to turn them off. People can find you even when you don't want to be found. LOL!! No, really I am thankful for them. They have saved us so much $$ on our phone bill:-) Lord knows with a 15 yr old, 10 yr old, 11 yr old and 3 yr old. It's almost a necessity to have one now. Thanks for sharing and have a blessed weekend in Christ Jesus.
