• Homeschool Mother’s Journal ~ 1/13

    In my life this week…It was a great week. Paul had three days off, and a normal weekend, Friday thru Sunday. It’s so nice to have him home like that. We went out and played laser tag last Friday and had so much fun. It was great to go as a family. Then I had a relaxing weekend of no work. Just hanging out with my family, working on crafts, listening to audio books and working on my personal website. It was truly a blessed weekend. In our homeschool this week…It was our first full week back last week and it went real well. Usually we struggle a bit to…

  • Creating cards

    I have finally finished making and sending out our Christmas cards. Our family should be receiving them by the end of the week. I took a picture and will share it with you all next week, after I’m sure they have received them. 🙂 I am really glad that I have them done. This year they took a bit longer and I really wanted to start creating other cards that weren’t so time sensitive. Since we got them all in the mail today, this afternoon I got to create some simple card using the cricut machine, rubber stamps and some of the paper I have. 🙂 My plan is to…

  • I don’t like being sick

    But then again, who does like being sick, right? 😉 I started feeling like I was getting a chest cold on Sunday night. Sure enough on Monday morning I was wiped out tired, my throat was scratchy and I was coughing a lot. But I did still deep clean the house. I know, I’m stubborn, but if I’m going to be sick all week anyway, I want to be sick in a clean house. 😀 lol That did run me down a bit, and I slept for part of the afternoon, after I was done cleaning. I feel about the same today, which like Paul said, is good I don’t…

  • Weekly ramblings

    I’m thinking of starting a category called ‘weekly ramblings’ because it seems like I only get on once a week to just ramble. Oh, well, at least you get to see what I’ve been up to, right? 🙂 It’s been a good week, though at times I’ve felt totally scattered, like today. Too many things happening all at the same time and too many people talking at the same time. After my Fit Mommy Friday post from last Friday I got into a vegetable conversation on twitter with some friends. We were talking about different ways to get veggies in our diets (like zucchini in our brownies, my favorite way,…

  • My crochet projects

    Well, it’s that time of year again when I really want to start crocheting.  It seems with the change of season, curling up with a cup of tea, crocheting and having football on (yes, I like football) is what I really want to do.  I will say, even though Friday was the first day of Autumn, we have been experiencing summer like weather, so it doesn’t feel real fallish during the day.  But our nights get quite cool so I still feel like pulling out all my crafts and start working on them more.  🙂   I do like cross stitching too, and I have a project I am working…
