My Intentional Monday

Lake Erie Well, we are fully into summer, as well as, knee deep in a "remodeling" project. Since my daughter married in April, the goal was to convert her room to my son's room. It has been a work in progress ever since. While we were on vacation, dear hubby was able to pull up the old carpet and lay some flooring someone had given us. So now, we are painting walls, ceiling, etc... I actually enjoy doing those things, thanks to my grandmothers genes. The most difficult part is finding time to do everything else and that too! But, I am just taking it one day at a time, and relying on God for wisdom and strength to get it done.

Murder Comes by Mail by: Ann H. Gabhart

Doing a good deed never felt so bad Deputy Sheriff Michael Keane doesn't particularly enjoy being touted as the hero of Hidden Springs after pulling a suicidal man back from the edge of the Eagle River bridge in front of dozens of witnesses--a few of whom caught the breathtaking moments with their cameras. But the media hype doesn't last long as a new story pushes its way into the public consciousness of Hidden Springs' concerned citizens.  Photos of a dead girl arrive in the mail, and Michael becomes convinced she was murdered by the man he saved. With a killer one step ahead, things in Hidden Springs begin to unravel. Now Michael must protect the people he loves--because the killer could be targeting one of them next.

She's joined the FBI Art Crime Team with the secret hope that one of her cases will lead to his killer. Now, despite the her mother's pleas to do something safer -- like get married -- Serena's determined to catch thieves and black market traders.  When a local museum discovers an irreplaceable Monet missing, Serena leaps into action -- and a whole heap of trouble.

My Intentional Monday

Well, after being on the road for two and a half weeks, and driving through eight states, I am certainly glad to be back home and developing a routine again. I haven't been home long so am not really quite back in the groove yet, but am working on getting there. And looking forward to getting caught up on my books and reading. Our trip was very enjoyable with visits to the Corning Glass Museum, Hershey Chocolate factory, Washington D.C., and the Chesapeake Bay Tunnel Bridge. It was a great experience for the kids, and a wonderful time of bonding with cousins and grandparents-a rare treat! I didn't get much reading done, but we did listen to several audio books while we were riding in the car. Hence the difficulty finishing a book. How can you read one, when you are listening to one? One special thing we did just about every day was something my dad called Daily Reflections. The first day of the trip the kids got a notebook and pen to write down things they did that day,

An Update

Hi there! My blog has been a little "dead" for the last week or so, but I am not. Actually, I am having the most amazing experience. Maybe you are wondering what I have been doing... My missionary parents are home on a short furlough, which began with my daughter's wedding.  During this time, my children and I have been blessed with the coolest opportunity - A chance to travel for a couple weeks up and down the eastern side of the US. So far, we have traveled through Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York. The kids have seen Lake Erie and Niagra Falls. We still have quite a few places to hit on the way back south.
