• Sites I like to read

    I’ve been looking to make some changes, not only the look of this site, but also how I use it.  I wrote briefly about working with different social media sites and Annie Kate from Tea Time with Annie Kate suggested a site to look up, by Amy Lynn Andrews.  The minute I got on that site, I knew I was going to get a lot of info from there, and I was right.  I’m still gleaning lots of information, thanks for the suggestion Annie Kate!  😀 One of the things Amy suggests is a site called Pocket to bookmark articles you want to read later.  Between reading a lot on…

  • End of Homeschooling

    End of homeschooling equals the beginning of learning.  That’s what I’ve been thinking lately, that the end of our homeschool journey has been the beginning of my learning journey.  I’ve always enjoyed learning new things, though I didn’t really like school.  Once I graduated my desire for learning grew, and I wanted to take some college courses.  The change was, I wasn’t being forced to go to school and learn things that really didn’t interest me.  With college courses, I got to pick what I wanted to learn, and it was my choice to go.  I didn’t go for a 4 year degree, but did take courses for what I…

  • Photo Friday ~ 2/17

    My plan was to take photos of our back yard, by the fire pit, and watch the snow slowly melt.  But the weather had other things in mind.  It was slowly melting, then more snow, then we got in a warm spell, with rain, so the snow disappeared quickly.  That is great, because I wanted the snow to melt, but it’s caused lots of flooding issues.  Thankfully with our house, we don’t usually deal with much flooding, though we have gotten some water damage to our garage.  But the flooding around here has gotten bad, so I’m hoping that ends soon. I am looking forward to spring.  We’ll still get…

  • Simple Woman’s Daybook

    Outside my window…Overcast skies, but warmer.  I see snow melting, and that means a lot to us.  We have piles and piles of snow and where we haven’t touched it, we have close to two feet of snow.  I am done with the snow this season.  🙂 I am thinking…That I am totally done with winter this year.  I usually don’t mind our winters and snow, but this year, we’ve had so much snow, I’m done.  😉  I keep telling Paul that Northern Arizona is looking pretty good.  I want warmer, but I still like my seasons.  Once we get into spring, I’ll like being here again, but right now,…

  • Crocheted bookmarks

    I get together with friends once a month for a craft day.  Sometimes I feel like I don’t get any crafts done except on that day.  lol  This past craft day I was starting a new project that just wasn’t working right.  I started, frogged and restarted it about 3 times that day and still it wasn’t looking right.  I finally just stopped.  Crafts are supposed to be fun and relaxing for me.  It was definitely not fun and relaxing then.  😉 A friend of mine was working on a new bookmark pattern, that looked so cute I decided to try it.  I really like this pattern.  It’s so fun…
