Rainy Night & Photo Contest

It's a gloomy, cool day in August. I am thankful for this. Our AC went out yesterday and won't be fixed until tomorrow morning. I thought last night would be a tossing, turning, sweating, no sleep type of night. 
BUT
With our window open it turned out to be a perfect night.
I feel asleep to the soothing sound of rainfall and outdoor critter sounds,
muffled by our humidifier. 
There was a cool breeze through the night 
and into the morning.
I slept well. 
I wanted to sleep in.
What else is new... :)


I have a button! That's what's new! See my side panel! Haha.


Also, I want to take part in Ashley Sisk's In a Yellow House Photo Challenge. 
This week is trees.
This was taken our honeymoon in the Dominican at a beach party one evening.  It was so beautiful there... the palm trees, the colors of the sky, the calm ocean, and setting sun all mixed together...Amazing. I know it doesn't nearly compete with the professional entries but I love this picture and wanted to play along for fun!



And finally, one of the recipes I tried out this week was Caterpillar Family's
 Chicken Stir Fry Recipe. Click to get the recipe to learn how to make it! 


A few pictures of the process...(I had to play with my new camera!)






A must try!
