*Still going with no air conditioning - going on a week! Praise the Lord though, its been very tolerable! But Monday, the heat & humidity comes back so pushing Ricky to make sure its fixed by then! AuburnChick, can you come over & fix it... (You all - this lady is Mrs. Home Repair!)

*You know I love Christian Music... but two songs are out & popular that I am totally not feeling - "Two Hands" by Jars of Clay & "Perfect People" by Natalie Grant! And I love Jars of Clay & ADORE Natalie Grant... but everytime I hear these songs, I cringe...

*So you Think you Can Dance has made me happy this week..... but Mary's scream still aggravates the tar out of me!

*Praying for Yaya as her & her huband are finishing up their adoption process & looking at potential children. Look at these babies faces! All four need a home & these could be the children for her... pray for this family to make the right decision if these children are the ones that God has led them too... & Pray for these kids... those faces are precious!

*SWEET ALERT!!! My dad said when he's taking the twins out for donuts on their usual morning trip to Krispy Kreme - they both automatically bow their heads & fold their hands & pray..... is there anything sweeter then children praying to God?

*JUMPY DEATH TRAP UPDATE: No, the twins did NOT get back in after I left! Their mommy even told me that Sophia came up to her & asked "Where you afraid that I could have died in there?".... yeah - I think jumpy's are now going to be a thing of the past!

*My parents have had a string of air conditioner thefts! Isnt that crazy! Someone is stealing the whole units! I'd think it was nuts if it didnt happen at our work! We couldnt get the air on a few weeks ago... walked outside - the WHOLE UNIT was gone!!! Apparently people are stealing them for the copper? My question - how do you carry one of those things off? Aren't they like, really heavy?

*Awaiting my new cross stitch patterns to come in the mail! I've been lost since I finished the one I did for my mom - that took me, GASP - 2 years!!! Yes - two years... this thing was HUGE!!!! But it was lovely! So I finally found 2 more that I couldnt decide upon... but they are both big projects so one will probably take me a good year... but who knew those patterns could be so expensive! Cost me $45 for just two!!! .... Here's the one I did for my mama....

So click the button above... join along... put your week into fragments...


  1. The whole unit? How does that happen? It's not like you can put it under your trenchcoat...weird.

  2. That's unbelievable?! But I suppose after lugging a big unit like that around, a burglar NEEDS an air conditioner. JERKS!

    That "Sweet Alert" IS adorable. So precious, and what a gift (teaching the habits).

    Wondering about that jumpy tramp to investigate!

  3. I love cross-stitching, but I haven't done it in forever. Maybe that'll be a summer project!

    And somehow, I don't know either of those songs you mentioned, but I do love Natalie Grant. I'll have to look into them, for morbid curiosity's sake. :)

  4. The twins sound so cute! And that is so weird that people are stealing AC units!!!

  5. I'm praying for YaYa, too! I really want those sweet kids to become hers! She SO deserves them and they would be incredibly blessed!

    Your cross-stitch is AMAZING!

    Yes, just so you know, Mary's laugh/scream annoys me to no end, too! :)

  6. I would die without air conditioning. just die.

    and seriously that's crazy! :-)

    i love the random post - those are my favorite because it's just how I think! :-)

  7. Wow, Rebecca, that cross stitch is gorgeous!

  8. Who steals air conditioners? That's crazy.
    Great post.

  9. Someone must be pretty desperate for an air conditioner!

    But ok... I really like "Two Hands"... it's not that bad is it?!?! :)

  10. I hope your AC is fixed ASAP!
    I have heard that people steal ac units. I just don't get why people steal. What a sad life they must have. We have had alot of stealing in our little town. They have been stealing Guns. I mean lots of Guns.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
    Oh...I love those songs you listed!
    ;) Julie

  11. I am loving SYTYCD! But I agree, Mary's scream has got to go. She is the whole reason why my husband won't watch it!

    Yay for cross stitch! That's beautiful, I'm still working on my ballerina one. Probably won't get done for about 5 years!

  12. Wow what a week. I love the picture. It is so pretty. Have a great weekend.

  13. I'm with you, I cannot watch So You Think You Can Dance because of her scream. It's obnoxious and stupid! I just can't even handle it!

  14. Oh, my word! That is a gorgeous cross stitch for your mother! And I'm just picturing the praying before the donuts--how adorable. As for the AC units--how crazy is THAT?! Yep, copper is big time valuable these days. I heard one company had theirs stolen, replaced it, and THAT one was stolen! It's sad business when you have to keep your AC on lockdown. :)

  15. Awww, I'm so glad you finished that cross stitch! I wanna see it when I'm there in 2 weeks!

  16. that's crazy people stealing a/c units! i hope y'all get your a/c fixed. have a great weekend!

  17. SYTYCD definitely made me smile this week, too. I forgot how much I have missed it. I think we're going to be spoiled with two back to back seasons! Any favorites yet?

  18. We have a giant cage cemented in the ground around the AC unit at our rental unit. It's insane trying to keep them in place.

  19. I love the kids praying. Cole is so sweet and does it each time we eat. I love what he's learned in his school :)

    Still can't get over the air conditioner ... people!

    Hope your having a blessed day ;)

  20. I'm not a fan of that JOC song either!

  21. I'm loving this random post and really who steals AC units? Nothing surprises me anymore. I'm going to take another listen to those songs. I haven't done any cross stitching in forever and after seeing your beautiful work I'm not sure I could attempt it.

  22. I just saw your reference to me! I had to laugh (did you see that I fixed my doorbell?). ROFL!

    I've gotta tell you that I LOVE Mary's for it each summer.

    Wooooooooo Hoooooooooooo!!!

  23. we still haven't even had to turn on our air yet, there have only been a handful of humid days. love the breezes blowing through my home! hope your is fixed soon!

  24. Who the devil steals A/C units? That's the strangest thing I've ever heard!

    Love that the twins were praying! I think that would be so sweet to teach children how to pray, it's definietely something I'm going to be doing!
