Have you noticed the price of food? Wow, it seems each time I go grocery shopping another $1.00 or so has been added to prices. The price of gasoline is out of sight...and that is totally ridiculous, in my humble opinion. :-) We have such a wealth of oil right here in the U.S., however, our gov't seems to love keeping us dependent on foreign oil. Not sure if you are familiar with the Bakken Formation or not. Two friends of mine in my Bible Study group are from N.D. and have explained a lot about this. There are tons of jobs available in that area and not many are aware. The small towns are not equipped for the influx of people coming there to work so lots of new accomodations need to be built. That creates positions for carpenters, tile masons & all types of construction workers. Then there is a need for more restaurants, hotels/motels, homes, apts, etc.
Ok, enough of the negative! :-) It has been predominantly sunshine each day and temps in the 60's and 70's. I am sorting through lots of paper work and shredding. Do you ever procrastinate doing this and then you have a ton of it like I do? I've also been reading and that is a joy! I'm going through photos and negatives of same and deciding on which ones to have printed or perhaps enlarged for framing. I LOVE having photos scattered around! It will soon be time to plant containers for my patio....can't wait! Flowers and green plants make me so happy.
What have you been up to? I've really missed connecting with all of you this past week.
