I Am Not The Same

Sunday, August 20th, 2017

We sang this in church this morning. The first phrase is “You restore the wasted years….” Isn’t that the truth? I don’t like our wilderness years and while I don’t actually think they were wasted, I’m so thankful God restores.

Around Here

Sunday, May 7th, 2017

Spring is finally arriving. We’re still having lots of cool days but there are many very nice days (or hours) interspersed in there. We’re looking forward to lots of outside time. Nathan has graduated from a baby pool to one of those longer rectangle pools. Not a huge one but much bigger than the one […]

Spring Has Sprung……Maybe?

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

It’s been pretty nice here the past few days. It does seem a little later for spring to find it’s way to us, but I’m not complaining. My daffodils are blooming. They always make me smile. Our grass is getting nice and green. There are already weeds in my strawberry patch (GRRR!) We haven’t had […]

A Little British

Monday, February 6th, 2017

I think that Nathan and I are are a little British! He adores Peppa Pig and has borrowed quite a few words from their vocabulary. He uses a torch to see (flashlight)….enjoys going on the lift (elevator)….and talks about tomahtoes (tomatoes of course). He also found a new one called Sarah & Duck about a […]

This & That

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

We are cleaning up after Christmas. I think I’m down to just putting away the ornaments and the tree. I’ve also been cleaning and decluttering. Of course that’s an all day every day project. I’m happy that the entire back of the car is full of stuff to take to the thrift store. Just have […]

Book Suggestions

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

I love reading posts sharing books that someone loves. I have given up on Oprah’s book lists. They always depress me. UGGGH. I enjoy reading your posts about books so if you have any recent posts, please link them in comments. I think that Lisa and I have similar reading tastes so I’m sharing her […]

This & That Chat

Monday, September 19th, 2016

We have been having lovely weather. Currently James took Nathan outside to play instead of doing school. I am ok with that today. We have a bunch of craziness today and there wasn’t going to be very much schooling completed today anyway. We have to take advantage of these lovely days because the cold weather […]

Our Attorney

Monday, August 22nd, 2016

We had three different attorneys during this journey of ours. I refuse to tally how much that cost because it boggles my mind and because those costs have made an impact even today on our finances. But here’s a story that makes me giggle every time I think of it. We found out that the […]

Thankful for Friends

Sunday, August 21st, 2016

I had a quick conversation with a friend online last week. She has moved away and James is taking care of her lawn. I touched base with her to let her know we were keeping an eye on things and she immediately sent me a payment for him. I told her  I hadn’t touched base […]
