Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, 
the extraordinary and mundane -- 
whatever is unique to the week. 
Join me if you like.

 This dog would like a strawberry scone.

What you do when you are stuck inside with a summer virus -- paint toenails. (Sally Hanson Sunrise, Sunset)
 What you do when you are still contagious with a summer virus but don't feel so bad any more -- create a fairy tale in chalk on the front porch.

 My sweetheart watering the plants.

 What you do when you are no longer sick nor contagious. (Our city pool.)

Found a girlfriend. I think it's amazing how white Faith still is in July. And I really do not go overboard with sun screen. Of course, her little girlfriend is very brown.

The evening I took Faith to the pool it was breezy and cool (for July) and I thoroughly enjoyed the scent of these beautiful petunias hanging above me while I worked on some knitting.
The big kids went to the golf park, hit some balls and played putt putt. They had a good time with dad while I was at the pool with Faith.

Below you'll find a linky list for the lovely women who have decided to join me in my 52 Weeks project. There are no rules (except the two below) -- if you want to start your 52 Weeks this week, go for it! I will keep the links up until next Friday, so you have a week to do it.

(1) Make sure you copy and paste the URL of your 52 Weeks blog post ( and not your main blog URL). You could also use of Flickr photo page if that's how you do things.
(2) Include a link back here in your blog post or flickr photo page.


  1. I truly will miss participating in these posts, Barbara. I hope to continue keeping record of our weeks—photos and journaling—in Word or something like that. It is such a valuable record but without the pressure I put upon myself with scrapbooking.

    Happy to hear Faith is on the mend.

    Blessings to you, friend.

  2. Sigh. I'm pretty sure I have that summer-something. I have a terrible cold. Thank goodness Andrew has a 3 day weekend.

  3. I will miss seeing your family pictures, too, Sarah. Not to mention you! I meant to leave you a comment this week, or send a lengthier email, but I've been running all week and I'm not very good at comments on my iPhone. We will miss you a lot but hope we can still keep in touch!

  4. So sorry to hear you are not well, Elisa. I don't know why it is summer colds feel so much worse but they sure do! Faith had an enterovirus -- a class of viruses that polio is in. Luckily she just got a sore throat and some malaise that stayed for about a week.


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
