Raining, Raining

What a wet summer we're having! I'm not really complaining. My tomato plants look great and everything is so green still! I'm not fond of cloudy days, but I do like rainy days. :)

Be sure to check out Beautiful Womanhood (or LAF). They've updated.

Also, I'm going to participate in Candy's To-do challenge. I'll post my to-do's on this blog at the end of next week. :)

I'm I want a new computer or a new refrigerator more? I'm actually leaning towards a new refrigerator. Both are wants at this point in time, but a new fridge will be more of a need eventually. :)

So far, I have $81.87 saved up for a new fridge. I'm considering one with the freezer on the bottom, but I know I don't want a side by side.

I finished reading Kateri of the Mohawks. It was interesting, but the end was rather disturbing. The author portrays Kateri Tekakwitha as basically dying from paying penance. She pretty much starved herself and beat herself and branded herself to pay for the sins of her and her people.
For this, they considered her very holy. I thank God that we don't need to pay penance for our sins. God has already forgiven us.

My next read I hope will be John Taylor Gatto's book Underground History of American Education. I just have to acquire the book. It's expensive to buy and hard to find.

You are smart not to get a side-by-side fridge! You lose cubic space that way. But you probably already knew that!

Thanks for the reminder on listing our To-Do's! I had completely forgotten.
