We had a lot of struggles re-doing our backyard.

My husband and I disagreed a lot. I just want to get it done ASAP while he was taking forever planning it out, getting estimates, etc etc. I say, just do it!

The only thing I wanted was to have a clean open space to have a BBQ and have people over. We are not fancy, we don’t have a big budget for hardscape, we kept it really simple. I haven’t put in any plants. But now we have a table and seating area. That’s all I need.

We’ve been having people over. Tonight we have a few young couples that we mentor. The international students are coming July 4 and Awana Core Team will be here next week.

I love to have people over, but nowadays, I am a bit stressed by the excitement. Actually it’s not much. I rotate a few menu items, nothing fancy. I pray that God will give me strength and for his glory.

On the list before the summer is over are my neighbors, friends with kids, another group of young couples, English staff.

Oh, I’m also excited we got our windows cleaned! Including window screens, inside and out. I can’t believe how everything is so clear now! We haven’t cleaned them in more than 10 years. Totally worth the $220.
