Here are five things for this Friday…
For years I have been adamantly against replacing a real book with this. I had a gift card to use and for various reasons purchased a Fire HD 7. I am surprised (and almost ashamed!)…I must admit that I enjoy using it.
I finally did some work in our garden. It was neglected last fall and it shows! This is what it looked like before I got to it. The good news is that the strawberries planted last year came up! I’m hoping for more than 5 strawberries all summer.
I was excited to read Why Just Survive When You Can Thrive. It is a great resource for any mom starting her summer. One of my favorite tips Keri shares is to let go of the unrealistic expectation of the perfectly planned summer. I agree that you need to keep it simple so you can enjoy the summer months rather than focus on unmet expectations.
Keri provides simple and helpful steps to help you plan your summer. She mentions embracing the gifts God has given you and evaluating the season of life you are in. That will help you focus on your gifts and your family when making plans.
The book has a resource section at the end that lists ideas for summer fun. I was taking notes on her long list of ideas, especially the outside fun activities.
The eBook was released Monday of this week. Read my review here or buy the book here.
I was recently invited to be a part of the Tuesday Talk Link Party. I am excited to join this great community of bloggers.
If you are a blogger, this link party is a great place to share your favorite posts. This is a multi-blog link party, so your posts will be shared on multiple sites. Be sure to to come back every Tuesday at 7 AM and link up your posts!
If you are not a blogger, please feel free to look around. Take a quick glance and I’m sure you will find a few great posts to read. I have found great blogs to follow through link parties.
