Works of God

Monday, April 19th, 2010

Any blessings this week? We got to spend some time with my brother and his wife and the baby! That was a blessing. My brother set up a photo shoot with people in his office. I took headshots for their business cards. It was a blessing to make some money! Lee applied for several jobs. […]

From Outside the Frame

Friday, April 16th, 2010

A very fun idea for an alphabet game. A free printable–airmail stationary. All kinds of different papers to print. Music staff, graph paper, etc. How to be perfectly miserable. They offer you a guarantee too! Have you found anything interesting this week?

On the book shelf

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Here are some of the books we’re reading around here right now. I’m an Anne lover just as much as I’m a Laura lover! I put off reading this book because I wasn’t sure that anyone could do it justice. I started it and am enjoying it. So far my only critique is that she’s […]

Fighting the Temptation to Spend

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

For the past several years, I’ve lived on a very limited income. Very limited. I mean limited. (Get the picture?) God has been so good to provide for us in multiple ways. The provision seems to come right at the exact moment. Whether it’s a part time job, a gift, a need found at the […]

The project

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

The project I asked you to guess about whas 1/2 of this. Isn’t it cute? If I make these to give away I have to figure out a better way to sew the fabric lining onto the knit pieces. It’s not quite right. The yarn is from a sweater I bought at the thrift store […]

Tellin’ the Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

The exercise didn’t happen much last week. I was in a lot of pain and worried that exercise was causing it. My back and neck were so stiff and sore and I felt like I didn’t want to do anything to make it worse. My chiropractor said to go ahead and keep trying it. She […]

Moms Behind Bars

Monday, April 12th, 2010

I saw this video tonight. I don’t know how long the link will be up, but it was an interesting video. This Corrections Department lets women offenders keep their babies for their 1st year. So sad! It’s bad enough having a daddy gone. I can’t imagine children waiting for mommy to come home.

Sharing

Monday, April 12th, 2010

James and I went on a nature walk a couple days ago. I practiced taking silhouette shots. Here he’s looking at the lake and telling me to hurry up! Here is the latest project I’m working on. Can you guess what it is?

Works of God

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

Anyone have any blessings to share this week? Ooo Ooo I do. I do! My friend lent me some Civil War resources to use next year for school. That was very exciting! The weather continues to be wonderful. I took James fishing this afternoon. He didn’t even get a nibble, but I enjoyed being out […]
