Olympic Bouquets

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010

I checked my email tonight and saw an article on Yahoo about the Olympic bouquets.  It looked interesting so I clicked on it. Oh man! It made me cry. The florist who got the contract (or whatever it is for the Olympics) runs a program to help at risk women learn floral design. The program […]

Little House Nature Study

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010

While we were reading By The Shores of Silver Lake last week, I found a passage describing things the girls found on the prairie. Since we’re in a bit of a deficit with our nature journal entries, I thought why not add some of these things. Even though we’re not there to examine them and […]

When Dad Comes Home

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

“When Dad comes home….” is a popular topic of conversation around here. I look back at the times when I said, “It will be one more winter, one more spring, one more birthday, and then Daddy should be home.” I’m thankful that my child isn’t messed up! That’s been one of my huge prayers. “Dear […]

Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

Thank you for joining me for another edition of Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday. Last week, I stayed on my plan. I exercised 3 times. I’m very happy about that and soon I need to make it a goal to exercise more often, but I want to wait until it’s a good habit before I push […]

Our Time Away

Monday, February 15th, 2010

Our time away was very nice and cheap! We rested a lot. We had planned a few outings, but opted to take it easy instead. Lee goes to work so early and he was tired. Also, even though we don’t always talk about it or think about it, we live in a constant state of […]

Works of God

Monday, February 15th, 2010

What blessings are you counting today? 1. I am so thankful for the time Lee and I had this weekend. We did a lot of resting, but how nice to be able to rest together! 2. My dear friend Joy is on her way (finally!) to Japan as a missionary. James prayed every night for […]

So Exciting

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

Earlier this week, I wondered if James could stay at his aunt’s house so that Lee and I could spend an evening together. I tossed the idea around and briefly thought it would be so nice if we could get away. But you know Lee’s hours are cut and our budget is so tight. I […]

Tropical Traditions Moisturizing Creme Review and Giveaway

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

I received a jar of this lotion to try from Tropical Traditions. It arrived on a very cold day and James was tickled to discover that it was rock solid. That’s because of the coconut oil in it I’m sure. When it warmed up it became a thick creamy moisturizer that we love to use. […]
