Friday Round-Up - #50

After church, Mom and I celebrated Mother's Day. She's been wanting to read Neta Jackson's series, "The Yada Yada Prayer Group." The first book whet her appetite for more. I picked up books 2, 3, 4, and 5 for her. We spent the balance of the day delighting in the company of friends.

Hmm, those gas prices are escalating again. Two weeks ago, the rock bottom price around here was $1.91.9. Last Saturday, the lowest price I could find was $2.15.9. How are prices in your area?

Tricia Goyer talks about writing while raising kids. Check out her post for a healthy dose of common sense and helpful tips.

Tomorrow, May 16, 2009, is the last day you can enter the drawing for Liz Curtis Higgs' book, "Grace In Thine Eyes." If you post about the contest on your blog and send me a link (in the comments or via email), you'll get a second entry. Don't miss an opportunity to pick up this popular book.

Our gas prices went up about .25 in one week per gallon! Not good.
Sounds like you had another good week:)) Enjoy your weekend!

Our gas is up to 2.29 a gallon. Yikes!

Blessings on your weekend,

Hi Terri -

We're up to $2.29.9. They're taking advantage with the summer months approaching.

Have a great weekend!

Susan :)

Hi Jess -

She's devouring those books - even staying up late to read. LOL!

If you use unleaded it's $2.31. It's a dime higher for the mid-grade. And another dime for premium.
It changes daily around here. Up 20 cents one day down a penny on the next, down another penny the next and then up a dime on the day following.

Hi Quiet Spirit -

They're using the same tactics here. I'm back to topping off my tank when it's down by 1/4.

Enjoy your weekend!

Susan :)

Hi Jen -

Thanks for linking to the contest. I can't wait to see who wins. :)

We have another drawing coming up on Monday. And wait until you see what I have in store for May 25th (Memorial Day). It's the grand finale of the Blogoversary celebration.
