Random 5 on Friday ~ July 19th

Hello! Thanks for being here and an extra special thanks to those that link up every week! I love reading what you guys come up with each week.


1. It is HOT here. Like can't breath, sticky, sweaty HOT. We don't have air and our house feels like an oven. So what did I do? I bought us a pool.

Then I bought sand. It would not be a good idea for anyone to ever let me level anything.

After I was covered in sand and sweat, I decided to let the kids swim in an uneven pool. Hey, it still cools right? Guess what daddy gets to do this weekend. (hint, hint...I know you are reading this)

2. I have cucumbers! I'm a little excited. This weekend we will be making pickles!


3. My flowers are all in full bloom. I have so many that I grew from seed. Love it!




4. I entered my monthly photo contest. The theme was self portrait. I had a million ideas but not much time. After brainstorming and scanning the internet for ideas this is what I came up with. Whatcha think?

Oh and you can vote for me! July Photo Contest


5. God has really laid on my heart the importance of encouragement this week. Do you need encouragement or prayer. I would love to pray for you. Just let me know!









Considering linking up?

Here are the rules. They are simple.
~ Link up your Random 5 on Friday post.
~ Add a link back to me somewhere in your post.
~ Please make sure to put the direct link to your blog post not just your blog. I like to read and comment on all of you but I can not always do it right away and I do not have time to look for it. Thanks!
~ Visit, Visit, Visit! Have fun encouraging each other. :)

I love your self portrait! It took me a minute to see the words . . . very, very cool! I am always impressed by people who have such an awesome artistic gift! Just curious - what is the name of the first flower you posted? I also grow from seed and would like to plant some next year!

Great pictures! Your flowers are beautiful and I love the self-portrait! And no matter what they say, those pools are NOT easy set-up...trust me, I know:)

Your flowers are beautiful! I'm just about out of homemade pickles, so I'll be making pickles this year, too. I usually make dill and bread & butter with onions. yum! Good luck in the photo contest.

It's insanely hot here, too. I promise, I will not complain about snow six months from now if we could just take it down a few (thousand) degrees.

Cristi said...

I feel so sorry for all of my friends that are having such hot weather this week. I've grown accustomed to the desert heat and ironically it's been a bit on the cool side the past few days. I hope you guys get some cooler weather soon!

Nikki Hinkle said...

Ugh its hot here too. We do have AC but have been spending it at our local pool. We thought the headache of tending to the pool was greater than the price of the membership. lol We also are lucky to live near it. :) Sorry I'm so late on my random 5 this week. If you get by my blog you'll see why. Keep cool .

PS love you photo.
