Skype, veggies & hotness!

Good Morning!
Well, last night my husband was on Skype for 4 HOURS!!! LOL! He was talking to our friends that recently moved away. I joined him for probably the last 2 hours. Anyways...that means I didn't get to use the computer and get my pictures put on the computer! Oh well! It was so fun chatting with them. I still have to get use to my face being on the skype screen. It makes me feel weird. Mr. Tim loves being on the skype screen though. Last night he was singing and dancing and doing all sorts of stuff. He was lovin it!!! haha!
Oh, last night I made some yummy pepperoni pasta bake that we will be eating on the entire week! And to go with it we had some Focaccia bread that we bought in Kansas City at the River Market. (more pics on that later!) For everyone who loves going to the farmer's market...you would have been in heaven at the River Market. I have never seen so many vendors! It was amazing. We bought several types of bread, peaches, yukon gold potatoes, grapes and some spices! LOVE!
Tonight it is VBS at our church, so the youth group can't meet at the church. So...we are going to meet at a city park! Sounds great...except for the fact that it is almost 100 degrees! haha! I already told myself this morning that I am not going to complain about the heat. I am holding myself to that!
I WILL NOT COMPLAIN THAT I AM HOT!!! :)
This is a test for me...I will let you know how I do! I also keep reminding myself that there are a lot of places in the world that don't even have a church building to meet in or have air conditioning! We are spoiled. But people still meet regardless of the conditions because they love God more than anything! That's me! I'm thankful I have the freedom to go to a city park and learn about God. (i will be bringing my personal water misting fan that i got in Disney World one time though!!!) :)
I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!!!
Hugs!

Ooh, I love a good farmer's market!

What a wonderful perspective you have going into the heat of tonight...thinking about underground churches all over this world that can't meet in places like a city park...what a blessing to be out in the open, regardless of the heat :)

Can't wait to see pix of your getwaway!!

I've always heard of the River Market but never gone! I'm glad you had fun!! I'll be right there with you tonight at church! When i was in Nicaragua with Jaron at his parents church there was no air conditioning there.... or at their house! they only have a little window unit in their bedroom and we only could run it at night! So, you won't be complaining and i'll be thinking this is what i have to look forward to every day!! lol i'm so glad you had fun!

Skype is alot of fun. We used it everyday when Mike was in Iraq. And I love a good Farmers Market. I've been visiting a little fruit stand really close to our house and buy fresh peaches, tomatoes and the biggest watermelons and cantaloupes I've ever seen. The first cantaloupe was as big as a basketball! It's all really good.
