I hope everyone is having a great day and managing to stay cool.

The weather in my neck of the woods: Currently 91 and mostly sunny. It’s supposed to be in the mid 90’s all week.
Things that make me happy: Free Books. It doesn’t matter where they came from (library, loaned from a friend, free bin at the local used book store, free downloadable ebooks, review copy) as long as someone in my house will use or enjoy it.
Book I’m reading: The Bible
Looking for a Window by Denzil Holman
31 Days to Clean by Sarah Mae
Fudge Cupcake Murder by Joanne Fluke
What’s on my TV today: Coverage of E3 (can you tell I have teenagers?)
On the menu for dinner: I don’t know yet. My husband’s not feeling well; if he’s feeling well enough we’ll go do some grocery shopping and go out to eat, if he’s not we’ll probably have homemade chicken tenders.
On my To Do List: Homeschool (only a couple more weeks and we’re done for the year)
New Recipe I tried or want to try soon: Vegetable Beef Bow Tie Skillet
In the craft basket: Didn’t do any crafting this week
Looking forward to this week: A peaceful week with hopefully no major events (good or bad)
Tips and Tricks: Spray hair spray on ink or grass stains on your clothing before washing them. It works better for me than most commercial stain removers (you might have to treat the stain a second time). I have even gotten some stains out when I didn’t see them until after the clothing had been washed and dried.
My favorite blog post this week: I have two this week.
Our Confidence (a great graduation speech by a homeschooler)
Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
Raising Homemakers this is a great resource for those trying to raise daughters
also It’s not a blog but I wanted to mention Taste of Home will donate 10 cents to the USO to be used to let service members make free calls home for each unique visitor to the following link before July 4th, 2011.
Flag Cake from Taste of Home
No words needed (favorite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share):
On my mind: My best friend from high school, Regina. She has kidney problems and is getting tired of the long dialysis treatments.
