It’s Not What I Thought It Would Be

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

My life doesn’t look like what I thought it would. Does yours? 35 years ago, I thought it would be  a fairy tale. I’d be the princess mommy and have lots of sweet little babies all around and everything would be pink and roses and cake all day! 15 years ago, Lee and I were […]

What I’m Struggling With

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

When I say “struggle” I don’t mean all out wrestling or emotional pain…just a now and then thing to pray about and deal with. For the past several months, I’ve been struggling with the fact that our life is boring. I see people I know doing all sorts of cool things. *going on hikes *taking […]

GRRRR……I’ve been annoyed about the laundry lately. We have so much laundry….and Lee is rarely home. I’ve read all sorts of ideas to help minimize laundry but it never really seems to work for us. Once in awhile, I feel overwhelmed about it and then I just try to let it go. It’s a fact […]

The Mason Jar~James Russell Lingerfelt~Book Review

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

What can I say about this book? Hmmm…..I loved the cover….. This book really wasn’t very good. The writing included WAY too man details…for example…one scene describes everything they ate and that they ate at a square table….a square table? The shape of the table usually adds nothing to the story unless one is upping […]

Where Treetops Glisten Book Review

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

  When I said I’d review this book, I’m pretty sure it was the title and topic that reeled me in. But then it sat on my shelf for awhile and I felt like I just didn’t have enough energy to jump into 3 books. I thought it was the typical novella type book….3 different […]

This & That

Monday, October 13th, 2014

There’s nothing too exciting going on around here. I’ve been feeling tired and behind since we got home from vacation, but this week I “sort of” feel like perhaps I’m getting back on track. I haven’t been exercising–not good. I am enjoying the sunshine this morning. Lee is on the road. James is in school […]

Autumn Pork Roast

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

The other day, I was watching a local cooking show and she made this pork roast that sounds delish! We make pork roasts very rarely, but this sounded so good, I went to the store and bought all the ingredients and it’s cooking today. 1 pork roast 1 onion, chopped 2 c. apple cider or […]

A Man Lives Here

Sunday, October 5th, 2014

I often say to myself, “As many things as I pick up and always put right where they belong, you’d think my house would be spotless.” It doesn’t seem to matter that I deal with the mail daily…that I hang up the diaper bag every time we come in the house….that I keep laundry picked […]

We’re finally underway with school this year. Since we were going on vacation at the end of August, I wasn’t interested in getting started and coming back to pick up where we left off so we just started when we got home. It was about a week later than we usually start but that’s ok. […]
