The weather was beautiful over the weekend. We intended to go on a road trip and do a lot of grilling. As it happened, we did a good deal of relaxing, went nowhere, and grilled only one meal. It was a very delightful meal, however: I cooked huge New York strip steaks and giant white mushrooms on the grill and baked two large russet potatoes in the microwave oven. There is sufficient steak remaining for another meal. Laura did a goodly amount of housework and put in several hours of work for her job. I read "The Midas Touch - A Balanced Approach to Biblical Prosperity," by Kenneth Hagin. It is an excellent book.
