Otherwise, I'm on the last day of my almost-two-week break between summer terms. I successfully pulled off the first summer term and so now have one less graduate course to complete and am one step closer to getting my Masters! Can you tell I'm excited? Because I am! I start my second summer term tomorrow, and it is certain to be an interesting class. The last one was!
I have been reading some, mostly books that I chose to review. One I am enjoying currently is a novel from Bethany House Publishers, called "Submerged." So far, so good!
As the summer is now upon us, I try to find methods of cooking that don't require running our oven and stove for longer than necessary, if at all. It makes the already warm and stuffy house HOT and almost unbearable! We are just so grateful for the wonderful gift of a grill from my husband's parents and my amazing parents-in-law, so that we are able to cook at least some of our meals outdoors! I love grilling! Some favorites so far have included burgers, grilled asparagus and steaks with grilled baby portabellas! YUM!!!
Hubby and I have been working around our house lately, organizing, sorting through clothes and odds and ends to see what needs to be kept and what needs to be given away. I'm delighted to say I have unburdened myself of (ahem - several) boxes of clothes that I won't be using and if I did, it wouldn't be for quite a while! It feels so good to be better organized. Definitely a work in progress, none of it is accomplished overnight, especially when you're still merging two households (his and mine!). But we've made a dent and it's encouraging! :-)
So what are you up to this summer? Stay cool!
And Happy Independence Day!! (it's only 2 days away!)
