• 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…

  • What’s your favorite social media site?

    I’ve been thinking about social media lately.  I’m trying to streamline how I use all the different social media platforms.  I will admit that Facebook takes up most of my time, but I am starting to use others more, and that takes even more time. 😀 Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest I’ve been on for years, Instagram and LinkedIn I’ve just started last year.  I’m enjoying all of them in their own way, but none of them really connect easily to each other.  FB is mainly written updates, Instagram is for pictures, Twitter short updates, Pinterest I use more for my own personal area to save items I want to go…

  • Photo Friday

    I’m making my own Friday meme, Photo Friday.  😀  I want to share my photos, but I also need a little nudge to help me get out and take more photos.  I’m hoping knowing I want to share some on Fridays will help me.  If you would like to join me, just let me know, and I can send you a copy of the graphic. This is our back yard, and that’s our firepit.  I hope to take photos from the same spot and show the snow melting. Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save Save

    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,…
