Recipe – Caramel Apple Cake
A friend of ours (Lori Howell) comes from a family of amazing cooks! She is a wonderful realtor and blends the two passions by sharing recipes each month on a postcard mailout. When I saw this Caramel Apple Cake, I had to share it! It looks so delicious and very easy to prepare. Just the glaze alone looks amazing!
Ideas on the Web – Fire Pits
A few months ago, I shared a post where my husband and I redid our fire pit area. It was a back-breaking and exhausting experience! You can Click Here to See the Post if you missed it. The title is “Whose Idea Was This Anyway?” That was the question of the week, but it was worth it.
Here in Texas, it is still a little too hot to light a fire, but it should be cooling down soon. I found a site this week that shared 17 Fire Pit Ideas – they are beautiful and inspiring. I have a few more ideas in my head to make our area a little cozier.

New Finds & Fascinations
While we waited for my mom to come out of her surgery a couple of weeks ago, my sister and I needed to charge our phones. We weren’t near a plug, and my portable charger is NEVER charged. Kristie pulled out her portable solar charger. She leaves it on the dash of her car most of the time, so it stays charged without her having to really think about it. It is also a flashlight! This solar charger just went on sale this week!
Here are a few applications from Deuteronomy this week:
- Deut. 22:1 Don’t pretend that you don’t see the needs around you. Do the right thing and help when you can.
- Deut. 23:5 How many times have we brought curses upon ourselves that we never even knew about, because the Lord turned our curse into a blessing?
- Deut. 25:4 The Lord cares about the animals and wants us to take care of them.
