Good Saturday to you from corn country where the heat and humidity have helped the corn grow, but definitely wilted us humans! Ugh......The desert is inviting us to a dryer heat. Okay, okay, it is 113 there today, but it is dryer!
Our friends, and Bethany's Godparents came by yesterday...they left Iowa just a few years ago and will be a short distance from us in a Phoenix subdivision. Jim says, "It is a dryer heat........but 115 is still 115 and hot." They live there year round and declare that you can't survive without a pool.....We have had others tell us the same thing. They gave us some good information for when we house hunt.
Well, the inside of the house is ready, the driveway will be ready Monday and Joel will begin in the garage when the heat goes down. We know of a couple of people who want to look at the house so will see if that pans out. It is not on Zillow.com yet.
We won a basket of fresh produce at the Farmer's Market yesterday. Last Friday I had signed up for a drawing, filling out one paper.....while watching another woman fill out 5 plus of the same. I remembered thinking it would be funny if I fill out only one and win. I did and I won! We were very surprised when we picked up our prize. A cantaloupe, zucchini, bunch of potatoes and green beans, green pepper, 4 ears of corn, and a couple of baked goodies. Wow! How great! Of course we stopped by our favorite vender and picked up strawberries, a cucumber, and another apricot/almond scone to share.
Last night we watched the movie, "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" with Judi Dench and Maggie Smith among others. The first one was much better, but we enjoyed it very much.
Last Sunday we went to Praise Community Church and found it delightful! Great music, good sermon and friendly congregation! We will go back tomorrow. We ran into a couple there that Joel knew and they told us they were moving to Mesa in two weeks, so we had them over Monday night for a visit. It was good to hear more info on house buying and shopping.
I watched a Healing conference out at Charis Bible College this past week. We had visited there last February. Would have loved to go, but we are a bit busy.......Joel took in a couple of the teachings also and we managed a bit of re-run TV and also some porch sitting before the humidity returned. Still walking daily along the river or in the Association.
Nice visiting with you today........how is everything in your corner of the world?
Until next time.....................
