From Outside the Frame

The hardest word in Hangman–very handy to have this info just in case! I saw this on Yahoo. She takes an ugly thrift store dress and remakes it–1 a day. New Dress A Day ooo! Right up my alley–making a journal out of a vintage book cover. My friend sent me a link to a […]

I saw this video on the profiles of many of my Facebook friends recently, but never took time to watch. I just watched it. And I cried. Of course I cried! As I watched, I thought it’s a vivid picture of us. I’ve definitely been the one lying there writhing in agony but I think […]

La Donna Velata The Woman with the Veil~Raphael

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

A  few weeks ago when I posted about how we do art study, I mentioned that we will study Raphael this term. We’re deviating from Ambleside’s  selection for this term because we had the opportunity to view a Raphael this spring. When my sister visited from the West Coast, she and my brother set up […]

Jury Duty

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Early this spring, I received my first ever notice for jury duty. Interestingly enough, James had just asked me what it was and we had a grand chat about what a wonderful piece of our justice system it is. Then I got the notice and wasn’t so enthusiastic anymore! We were still in school, but […]

Works of God

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Any blessings this week? I’m thankful it cooled down a little! James was ill all week but is mostly better. I’m thankful for that! I’m thankful for health and strength! I’m thankful that I took a few mornings and did my Bible study outdoors with a cup of coffee–SO RELAXING! What about you?

I loved this idea. I had a good laugh too because the same thing happened to me when I tried to hammer on the spoons. Chalkboard spoon plant markers. Tons of peach recipes on Pioneer Woman’s Tasty Kitchen. A pretty lamp shade. Did you see this “oops” typo? Funny! Get a free learn to knit […]

Music to My Ears!

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

James and I are reading through the Little House series together. We usually read one or two books per year. If we just plowed straight through the series, we’d have trouble getting all our other literature books read. So, we save them for a delicious treat. We started the series quite a few years ago, […]

Baked Tomatoes~Healthy Recipe

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

Barbara said I should share some of my healthy recipes so I will try to remember to do that once in awhile. Some of them I’ve tweaked from other people but here goes. I’ve been having this about every other day and it’s so good. If you’re not working on losing weight, or if your […]

Mmmm… that’s all I’m saying!

Lee has an interview for a truck job this morning! Please pray that it goes well. It’s a bonus that they didn’t automatically say “no”. At least they gave him a chance and are willing to talk with him. It will be good practice for him. ** Thank you for praying. It doesn’t look like […]
