〰The week started off with some good summer heat. I’m weird; for me, the hotter, the better. 

〰I love being porch people in the summer, and that I did indeed get to do. Me my iced tea and a book.

〰I’m reviewing a book titled Prayer Starters by Suzanne Eller. She provides prayer starters and prompts and sometimes a think-about thought. So far, I really like it. I think it will come in handy when I lose my words.

〰I made another clothespin wreath. I’m not a serious crafter, so when the mood hits, I have to jump on it. I have to say clothes pins, who knew? I love Pinterest! If you’re so inclined, you can find the DIY tutorial HERE.

〰I have to chuckle; okay, a lot. I have to tell you that my spoiled rotten, delightfully amusing beagle named Little Girl is a blubbering mess when we go in the car. So much so that she throws fur, drools, and her tongue sticks to my arm when I’m driving. She’s been riding in the car with me for years now. Again, if you’re so inclined, please see my post about What Is An Emotional Support Animal, Up Close An Personal HERE.

〰I’m so glad I found this group. I’m new around here, so it may take me time to write and share as much as you all do. Sometimes it’s difficult to recap my week and break it down into my favorite parts.

Linking up this week with Susanne @ Living To Tell The Story

  1. Nice to meet you. Your dog is adorable. I'd join you on the porch but only if it's shady – I do not like it too hot lol.

  2. Welcome to the FFF group! It' always nice to meet new bloggers. The clothespin wreath is absolutely adorable. I grew up with a beagle named Molly. I still have a soft spot for them, they are such happy dogs.

  3. Welcome, Paula! I'm not so far away from you in central Ohio (recent SoCal transplant).
    FFF is a really special group of people.
    My daughter has a beagle named Molly! And she likes it hot too!
    Not me. I like my shade.
    Happy July Fourth weekend!

  4. It's nice to meet you too Wendy. I'll pot the umbrella up for you on the porch. LOL.

  5. Thank you. It's nice to meet you, Karen. Yes, beagles really are happy dogs.

  6. Nice to meet you Willow. I love connecting with other bloggers.

  7. Welcome to Friday's Fave Five! So nice to have you join us. I love heat too but it's kind of relative. My heat in Southern Alberta doesn't compare to some of my blogging friends heat in other parts of the U.S. But I'm with you on a book and a nice cold drink to enjoy it. Your beagle is a cutie! The clothes pin wreath is cute. It's fun to let our creative sides out when the mood strikes!
