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

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 […]

Sink Prayers

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

My mom’s favorite place to pray is at the sink. She loves washing dishes and I think it’s because it’s one of the places she takes time to pray. I was washing dishes this morning and praying about some situations we’ve been dealing with the past few months. I prayed for God’s conviction and for […]

I was introduced to these pencils in my rubber stamping days. I still have my original set. These are great for the new coloring book craze and this is a super deal!

I read this article  There’s a lady at the gym and she hates me on  Lysa TerKeurst’s blog today  and it resonated with me. I’ve made this mistake and others have made this mistake about me! Like she says in her post, there are those who make it clear that they don’t like you either by […]

A couple years ago, we had a big big garden. It was my first ever big garden and I was so excited. But the garden flooded a couple times before it was able to get established. The weeds took over. I mean TOOK OVER. It was like a wilderness. Little guy was small and I […]
