1--I stole the idea for this from my friend Bonnie at Learning to be a Newlywed. I think she got it from a place called Conversion Diary, which I don't think I've ever been to before. My only hope with using it here is that it makes me write about something other than the adoption.
2--This summer has been ridiculously humid so far. I have had to come up with different ways of dealing with it. Initially the only air conditioner was in our bedroom, so I was kind of stuck up there on the really bad days. But then Nathan and his dad installed a large window unit in the sun room. We have yet to need it, but I'm really excited for when we do. My other way of dealing...Sundresses! I've bought two so far this year and they are a lot cooler than shorts and T-shirts.
3--I've been knitting quite a bit, I'll post pictures later. I've been practicing socks and mitten/gloves so I have one of each. Maybe one day I'll make pairs.
4--I need to learn how to cook in the summer time. My specialties are casseroles, lasagnas and other heavy "oven foods." I really don't know what to make most nights when the temperature is over 60 degrees.
5--This picture was taken last month at my nephew's baptism on the 19th. He was baptized in the same church as my dad, my brother and me. The window we are standing under is an image of Christ revealing His Scared Heart to St. Margaret Mary and my mother tells me at my baptism we took pictures under this window too. Also, Brian's baptismal gown was gorgeous and handmade by my sister-in-law's coworker.
6--Our dryer is on the fritz again. We bought it last year from a garage sale and it didn't work right away because (we later discovered) the outlet was bad. Now it is not putting out heat and the timer is not moving...at least it's nice out so I can hang clothes on the lines.
7--It is really hard to think of non-adoption things to write about. The dryer comment was me scraping the bottom of the barrel. I hope it gets easier.
