Finally my Crape Myrtle's are blooming. So now I can finish photographing my garden for this year when they have bloomed fully. They bloomed late this year, it's the first time they have bloomed this late since we've planted them, but it was a very cold winter.
It's so nice to look out my craft room window and see all our crepe myrtle's in bloom!
It's only get to the upper 80's today. It's been a really nice July so far. But soon it will be in the upper 90's which I hate.
LantanaSteve has decided we won't be doing any more upgrades to the house this year or until things get better at work and in the economy.
We won't be spending any money, but saving as much as we can. We're going to make some changes here at the White House and only spend money when we need to for awhile and until we feel more secure. Our White House is different from the White House in Washington because we can't spend other peoples money or spend money we don't have.
We always work on the house doing this and that, but his job at a car dealership has recently fired 2 people. There is a big meeting on Wednesday and Steve worries what will happen next. He is not a car salesman but a service advisor, just so you know. LOL!
This year and last year he has made much less money then in previous years.
Our house is not under water yet, but it's not anyway near worth what we've put into it.
I think Steve is feeling discouraged and I don't blame him.
You turn on the news and it's bad news, you go to work and it's bad news. The only good news is that we have God to turn to in times of trouble. Of course we are happy that Steve has a job, but he worries that Wednesday there will be more firings.
"But Christ is faithful as a son over God's house. And we are his house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope..." (Heb.3:6)
I pray you have a good day and remember to pray for our country, as so many people are also discouraged right now.
