A Bit of This and That

Friday night football went well for our team. Here our two boys are talking on the sidelines while watching the offense do their thing. We won, and Matthew had another great night. Whenever Matthew does something great, he always looks for Josh to talk to. I have enjoyed watching their brotherly bond. Josh doesn't get much playing time on the varsity team because he is only a Freshman. He is always ready to cheer his team on and dance a jig when he hears the band!

Fall is the air, but it has been blazing hot the last few days. I thought I would fry just watching our 3rd son's football game this afternoon. There is something about the tilt of the sun that makes it seem like fall, but until the heat subsides a bit it is surely still summer in my book! As soon as it cools off a bit, I plan on heading back out to the garden to see what might be ready. I am also thinking about what I want to make for tomorrow's main meal. I always like having a big Sunday dinner to come home to after church. There is something special about Sunday dinner. However, it does take some Saturday planning so I need to get hot on that.
I don't know if anywhere else has experienced the gas issue, but we have here. On Friday morning, our gas was at $3.58 and by Friday evening we pad $4.09. We also had to wait about 15 minutes just to get the gas. We drove to the away game and realized that we didn't get enough gas. We already knew that several of the gas stations in our area were completely out of gas. We ended up paying $4.19 for gas on Friday night. The prices are still high for those stations who still have gas. It is enough to make a person want to stay home! Truth be told, I am a home body any way no matter what the gas prices are!!!
grace and peace,

Gas here in Middle GA as of Sunday was $4.46! We had to stop at 3 stations to get that! Staying home is sounding better & better.

Wow, I guess I shouldn't complain about our prices here. I filled up my husband's car yesterday while I was in town. I paid $4.09 and it took $67 to fill up his CAR. I don't even want to think what it will cost to fill up our Suburban. Have a great day!!!
