Keeping Cool With The Johnson Bailey Mesh Screen

This post contains affiliate links

We had some really wicked thunderstorms pass through our area recently and our house took a near direct hit from lighting. We got very lucky that with the exception of some minor things, we didn't have any damage to our major appliances and our house didn't catch fire. 
I was also glad to have received the Johnson Bailey Mesh Screen to review because that lightning strike blew up our transformer and the only thing we could do to try to stay comfortable after days of triple digit temperatures was to open as many windows as we could and hope the night air would suffice. We knew it would be hours and possibly a full day before our power was restored.

The Sunset of Life

Last week we laid our grandpa to rest. Technically step-grandpa on my husband's side, but it never felt like that. When his mother re-married, her husband's parents welcomed us with open arms and loved us like we were their blood relations.

Book Review: Dealey Plaza by John Russo

This post contains affiliate links

Dealey Plaza is written by John Russo, the man that brought us Night of the Living Dead. I have not only never read that one, I have never seen the movie. I wasn't sure whether to expect out and out horror or not! While it is not horror of the zombie-eating-your-face-off variety, it is a more subtle type horror. The title had me ready for a rehash of the JFK assassination, but it's not that either. What it is, is a tale of a group of people that are all part of a brutal crime, the aftermath of the crime and the paths their lives take in the years afterwards.

We Find Inspiration In Words - #WordsMatter With DaySpring Wooden Letters

This post contains affiliate links

#wordsmatter  #lovehallmark

I have a few words that stick in my mind often. One is Faith. What must sometimes must seem like flying by the seat of our pants, is often the faith that things will work out the way they are supposed to or the way that is best for us. We have never really planned things very far in advance. There have really only been a few things we ever did plan ahead of time. One was our wedding. The other was our son. And that second one took a while to come to fruition. One of my other favorite words has sustained me through our trying times: Hope.
