Kill The Competition

August 1st already?  

Time has slipped away and summer seems to be winding down early for some reason.  The hot, dry days have killed off our wildflowers and the grass has turned a burnt brown.  The grapes that we were so excited about, have gotten to the point where it is too late to do anything with them.  Gary ordered a wine making kit online, found some big jugs, and purchased Sure Jell for jelly.  But the bees have taken over the grapes - that quickly.  Thank you Sharon, for sending me to Teresa who sent me somewhere else and I did get a good wine recipe.  Next year we will be ready!

This weekend we were able to get away and have dinner and a movie.  It was a great day!

It's a beautiful Monday morning with a new week of challenges.  Hopefully our newspaper ad will bring in lots of new customers in spite of our many competitors that are trying to 'kill us'.  


Yesterday at Church the Youth was in charge of the service and what a blessing that was.  The music... the message...  the commitment that the young people have for spreading God's Word.  My heart was blessed!
