Hope all of you are having a good summer day. It has been HOT, HOT, HOT!
Thought we may share some green/energy efficient tips. Remember to keep windows and blinds closed during the hottest parts of these scorching summer days. It helps to keep the heat out and the a/c air inside, cooler! When not at home, set the thermostat at a higher temp to save energy and $$$$$$$ on the electric bill!!!
For cleaning, I had read somewhere to use coarse salt as a cleanser. Very eco friendly! Was out of cleanser once. So, I tried it and WOW it works like a charm. Even better than cleanser. It is great on bake and cookware as well without scratching. I have now used just about any salt I have on hand. Hardly buy cleansers anymore! And, we are not flushing even more chemicals down that drain! Give it a try!
Ladies, perhaps most of you have heard about Borders closing. My daughter has been a longtime employee. This is a hard time as now again some 11,000 people will be out of work. Hoping to find new jobs in an already tight job market.
We live in such troubling, discouraging times, don't we? I have to admit, this has been an extra rough week with a lot of fear, pain, and tears! I know the Lord is in control, admitedly some days better than others!!!!
Yet, despite all that is going on in our country, world, economy and our own financial situations.
We have just GOT to hold onto the Lord and HIS HOPE, not ours! Without it, we have nothing.
We are all confused, but HE IS NOT!!!
We will have very bumpy rides , OFTEN, in this life. We have to try to let go and trust, even tho
that is the hardest thing to do at times.
Praying for each of you! Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to share.
