Misc. Monday

I didn't think I'd do a Misc. Monday post today, but the boys are watching cartoons and I think I'll be able to get one written before we start the day.


I let Will and Ben jump on the couch.

I do.

I wanted to get new furniture for the living room a couple of years ago and Mark talked me out of it.  I'm really glad he did because I don't care if they jump on the couch or spill something on it.  It's our living room and we definitely live in it.


This clock is in the kitchen and the batteries need to be replaced.  I never realized how much I look at this clock to check the time.  It stopped at 5:30.  I also never realized how much I glance at the clock and don't look at the hour hand just the minutes hand.  Well, that has almost made me late several times.  I decided to move it to high noon until I put in new batteries.  That way I'd remember that it wasn't working.


Hummus is good.  My in-laws took some on our vacation and I've been hooked ever since.  It's so funny to hear Ben say hummus.  I wish I could add his cute little voice to this blog post.

I think it goes perfectly with these crackers.


Just because these are the cutest little shorts in the world.  I love Ben's Elmo pajamas.  Here he is drinking juice from his sippy cup this morning.

One more of my baby.


Our air conditioner stopped working on Friday night about nine o'clock.  It was the hottest day of the year so far.  Not good timing.  At all.  We'd already put the boys to bed and we noticed it wouldn't get any cooler.  We could hear the AC working but no cool air was coming out of the vents.  By the way, we don't keep it extremely cool in our home.  We usually let it hover around 79 or 80 on really hot days and Mark kicks it down a little lower at night.  So, when he checked the thermostat and it was 84 when it was set to 80, he knew we had a problem.  He called his dad who came over and they went outside and did something.  The fan started working and we thought that the problem was solved....well, it wasn't.  That only worked for about 2 minutes and the problem was back.  There we were, at night, on the weekend, in the middle of July and no AC.  Not good.  It eventually got as warm as 87 degress in the house.

Now, here's the happy ending.  Mark called our local AC guys early on Saturday morning and left a message and guess what, they called us back on Saturday morning.  Woo Hoo!  They were at the house by 9:30a.m. and the problem was an easy fix with a part they keep in stock on their truck.  They fixed us up and we were good to go.  We even had time to take the boys to see the new Winnie the Pooh movie.

Let me say that I'm so thankful for air conditioning. 


The 100 most-read Bible verses at

I use BibleGateway a lot, and I found this the other day when I was doing an internet search for a certain verse.  Such a neat list.  I thought you might want to check it out.

So many of my favorites are on the list.

Proverbs 3: 5-6
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.

As always, linking up to lowercase letters.

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters


  1. Glad your AC is back on... ours only breaks on the hottest day of the year too! Last year the kids and I ran through the sprinklers in our pj's before going to bed to try and stay cool. Love the kids jumping on the couch! We finally bought a new couch (our old one actually broke from the jumping) so no more kids jumping on our couch... at least not when I am in the room.

  2. I love Bible Gateway and hummus too!!

  3. I love Bible Gateway what a cool list! Isn't hummus the best? I go through phases with it but currently I am loving it!

    So glad you AC got fixed!!

  4. Love in the living room. So great. Happy you got your AC back.


Comments make my day! I'm so happy to hear from you!
