Project 365 ~ Week 34

This week brought lots of rain in our area which is a great blessing because we always need rain. I snapped this picture of Betsy because I thought she was cute laying on the towel by the door. This month has been an extra special one for me because I have been able to bless a family by going over to their house and helping in any way I can. Children are such a wonderful gift from God.
I needed to wrap a gift for a guy this week and I always have problems coming up with ways to make the gift look manly. This didn't turn out exactly as I imagined but I think it looks manly enough. I used the comic section from the paper and I wanted to use gray duct tape but couldn't find it and we had some blue duct tape in the garage so I used that. Friday we spent the day working in my parent's townhouse getting it ready for renters. Now we pray that they get good renters who will take care of the house like it's their own.

We're praying for good renters for your folks too! Wouldn't it be great to find someone who wants to rent-to-buy?!

I think the gift is quite manly. Another option is plain brown paper bag wrap and twine.

We could use some rain here. Winter is the dry season but it's SO DRY we're having a lot of problems with wild fires in the province. And Ivan has to water our little garden pretty much daily. Not only do we not get much rain in the dry season, but the sun is very intense and the air so dry.

Have a great week!
