June 2017 update

We haven't been doing as much as we use to.
With trying to purchase a condo in NJ.
Every waking hour is spent searching on line.
Then we have to keep weekends open for visiting.
So far the Lord has seemed to shut every door.
We are beginning to feel He doesn't want us
purchasing a place in NJ.  Our hearts are
not really into retiring in NJ.  But I am only 57
so retiring seems like a few years away.
But the Lord has been asking me to wait on
His leading and trust Him.

We are going to take a trip end of August
down to Peachtree City GA an area we
really like.  My company has two huge
locations in that town.  Asking the Lord
to open a door for me to either work my
job from that location or open up a job
for me there.  So stepping out in faith . . .

I have been doing a summer on line
study - Beth Moore Entrusted.
WOW it is so good.


























Plus I have company when I do my studying. 
My sweet boy Judah loves his Mom.



















My Aunt Rose grew me my favorite pink peonies again.

Aren't they awesome.



























Mr. Judah thought so too : )


























Hubby and I tried a local place.
We are so glad we did- it was wonderful.
Inkanto Latin American Infusion
(Peruvian food)
A beautiful salad with avocado




























A huge Empanada



























Arroz Chaufa  - with chicken


























I've been doing a little crafting.
Since I had begun to pack all my
summer decorations are packed.
So I threw this together -
flip flops were $1.00 each

One of my friends on facebook said "kitty approved" hah

























Hubby and I tried a new breakfast place.
Comfi !   WOW WOW WOW

Take a look at this mess ! hah  so good !

This was mine - croissant with ham, onions, poached eggs,
hollandaise, cheese.  


















This was hubbies - kielbasi with eggs and bacon























I went out to dinner with my Aunt and when I got home
I saw this - sweet sweet boys patiently waiting for Mom's return





























They had this fun game on Facebook.
Here are all the states I've visited.

On my bucket list:
Montana ! ! !




















How awesome is this:
















Whether or not we feel able, we have it in us to put on
our warrior boots and go.
You are able, but not because you mustered

up a brave moment.
You are able to walk Jesus strong because of who

He is and what He has already done.
Lisa Whittle / Ann Voskamp


I treated Aunt Rose to My Kitchen Witch
They have a Friday night dinner that is amazing.

How cute is this place?

























We started out with Watermelon Gazpacho.
Never had anything like this before.
It was fabulous.

























Then we both had the ribs
