The Lost Wife ~ This book will live with me forever. Though I could not put it down, there were times it was hard to pick it up and continue. The author wove a story around actual events that pulled you in on the first page and did not let you go. Not even at the end.
Books Worth Reading
There are tiny houses for every style, for every mood … but I am a big fan of the rustic log cabin look. Maybe it is because that style of architecture immediately puts me in mind of a cozy retreat in the woods or the mountains somewhere, far from civilization—just you, your loved ones, and the comforts that make up your private world.

Just tell me it's not the end of the line - Demi Lovato and Olly Murs - Up
I love that you do this - I miss feeling you next to me in bed when I wake up in the middle of the night, I miss the kisses and the feeling of your hand on me as I drift off to sleep - knowing you are there next to me loving me more than I ever thought anyone could love me.
I chased all that time to end up hurt. You played hard to get which made me want you more. The more distant and cold you were made me try harder. You kept me hooked by giving in and making me feel like you were so in love then it would be back to chasing you again. Then one day I saw you with her. You were doing the same things with her you did with me and I realized that to you it was just a game. You never cared about any of us. All you wanted with us is what you could get out of us.
Prayer Journal On the following pages, specific prayer requests. If you've asked me to pray for you, your name is in this book somewhere. Whatever day it is, when I learn of a need, I just pencil it in. Urgent requests that need continual prayer go on a sticky note and move with me through the week. When a request is answered, I check it off and make a note. In this way I have a record of thanksgiving as well.

Restoring teak furniture What You Need: Rubber Gloves Two Brushes Medium Grit Sandpaper Soft Bristle Brush or Steel Wool TSP (a cleaning agent) and a bucket of warm water Teak Oil Polyurethane Instructions: Clean: If you are dealing with teak turned old and grey you will be surprised at how this step alone will begin to transform your piece. Using a soft bristle brush or steel wool, thoroughly scrub the wood with warm water and a detergent like TSP. This gets rid of the oxidation and dirt that has built up and given the wood its silvery patina. Depending on the state of your teak this step can take quite a while and require some serious arm work. If you're starting out with some really weathered teak you will begin to see some serious transformation here as the wood's true color starts to make its appearance. Sand: You'll need to get some medium grit sanding blocks and sand your teak by hand to even out the top layer of wood. Try to get the color as even as possible. Dry Time: If you're like me this is the hardest part. I am so impatient that once I start I just want to keep going till it's finished, but I assure you this step is really important. Your newly cleaned teak needs a few days of drying time so that the oil you will put on in the next step can fully saturate deep into the wood's pores. Oil: These next two steps are very toxic so make sure you are in a well ventilated area before you start applying these chemicals. Now that the wood is good and dry you are ready to apply the oil. Go get some good quality Teak Oil, a brush and some rubber gloves and lightly brush the oil over all surfaces three times each. You must do this a minimum of four rounds with an hour in-between allowing time for the oil to fully saturate the wood. Apply as many times as needed until you get the desired color of wood. Seal: At this time your teak should be looking as good as new. After all the work you've put in you may be tempted to call it quits, but you still have one more step. You have only restored the teak's natural oil at this point but haven't protected it from further damage. That's where the polyurethane comes in to seal in the oil and protect the surface. Paint on a few coats and let dry for a few days, and you'll be ready to sit back, relax and enjoy your newly restored Teak furniture. Store: Going from Los Angeles to Seattle I completely failed to do this step last winter so I thought I would throw it in. I used to live outside and never had to give a second thought to my outdoor furniture so upon moving to this new climate I was a bit stubborn and naive about the correct upkeep. So if you don't live somewhere that has year round summer then you should either cover your furniture or bring it into an unheated garage. I say unheated because temperature changes and excess heat can crack your wood. MORE TEAK RESTORATION ON APARTMENT THERAPY: How To Care For Teak Furniture
