Free-For-All Friday!

It's Free-For-All Friday, so here is a collection of random thoughts from the week (in no particular order):

  • It rained today!  And according to the weatherman, there is more rain to come in the next few days.  A welcome relief in the middle of this exceptionally hot, dry summer.
  • I see that Barbara Walters is hosting a two-hour special on Heaven tonight.  In spite of my great interest in Heaven, I believe I'll pass.  
  • I'm so glad to have Bethany home with me tonight.  She came home from her trip to the beach on Saturday and left for Fellowship of Christian Athletes Camp on Monday.  I really missed her while she was gone.  Gave me a little sneak peek of what it will be like when she goes to college next year, I guess.  More about her time at camp in a future post ... Or maybe I should say my time while she was at camp.  For tonight, we're on the couch watching "Say Yes to the Dress."  :)
  • We spent the Fourth of July evening with our friends, the Browns, who you hopefully "met" via my post from yesterday.  We grilled steaks and then went out for a cruise around the lake on their pontoon boat.  We ended up watching a fireworks show from the boat, which was an unexpected pleasure, since as far as we knew all the fireworks shows had been canceled due to the fire danger.  I haven't watched fireworks from a boat since I was a little girl in Wisconsin, so that was a fun treat.
  • Stuffed pizza from Papa Murphy's is really good ... I'm just sayin.' 
  • My classic for this week has been "The Picture of Dorian Gray" by Oscar Wilde.  A very curious book. I'm interested to see how it ends.
So there you have it ... Free-For-All Friday for this week!

Sounds like you led an eclectic but blessed life this past week:)I can't imagine what Barbara Walters would say about Heaven. I think I'll stick with John 14 and Randy Alcorn's book:)

That's right, Cathie! if it had been Randy Alcorn hosting the special, I'd have been sitting on the floor in front of the TV taking notes, and I'd have been recording it on the DVR! :)
