We won!

You can imagine my surprise when I got an email from a friend telling me we won the giveaway from! Wow, do we feel blessed! Many thanks to Kim who sponsored this giveaway. We will be receiving the three items on my wishlist from Vision Forum:

This is a set of 6 CDs called Bible Lessons for Manhood from the Battlefield of My Father's Youth.
Next is a set of set of 8 CDs called Family Rebuilders Library.
Our final item is another set of 8 CDs called Family Renewal Library.
I have to admit, it was very hard to narrow down this list. We are going to buy a few additional items. Sarah is interested in filmmaking and feels a leaning towards making conservative, Christian films. So she wants to get all three sets of film CDs.
Mike and I would like to invite a bunch of teens over to watch the set of 30 DVDs called The Culture-Changers. After that, we'd like to take a group of teens through the set of 22 CDs called Christian Worldview Training. So I guess I better get busy selling more on eBay!
This Friday evening we have invited the folks from our church to join us at the local Navy Recreational base for a one-night bonfire and campout. The weather is supposed to be perfect. I can hardly wait! If you live locally but don't belong to our church, let me know and I will send you an invite.
Each year about this time, we have a problem with yellow jackets. This year they are far worse than ever before, probably because of our drought. Anyhow, I have a set of four glass wasp traps that I have used for about 7 years. However, they are hard to clean and fill. So last year I went to and bought a set of 6 plastic wasp traps that you push into soda bottles. I fill the bottles with an inch of apple juice and it works great! Here's a bottle that has an inch of dead bees. Time to empty out and fill up again.
Maggie is experimenting with her sweet and sour nuts recipe for the bonfire on Friday night. She melts butter in a pan, adds nuts, about 1/4 tsp salt, about 1 tblp sugar, and shakes the pan until they are roasted. Maggie has made these nuts many times in the toaster oven, never over the stove. They turned out well and taste even better!
Enjoy these crisp evenings and mornings before they get too crisp:-)
Many blessings ~ Kathie
