Tuesday Coffee Chat
New Month ... time to shed the old and make a fresh start. Let's start with One Good Thing. I was just talking with my friend Cheryl this morning about this very thing. I typically thrive on a pretty hard-core schedule. I wake in the morning, read my Bible ...

Share a winter memory from your childhood. So many memories come up when I think of winter as a child. I have always loved winter, even as a kid. One that I was just talking about with my Sunday school co-leader and childhood friend on Sunday: When we were ...

Weekly Wrap-up ~ When our LONG Christmas Break Came to an End
What a much-needed and glorious long Christmas break we had this year! We ended school for first semester on December 18th and resumed school this past Monday. We thoroughly enjoyed our holidays and spending time together as a family. But all good things mu...

When did you last 'skate on thin ice', 'skate over the details', 'encounter a cheapskate', or just plain skate? Something bad almost always happens when I am away from home. While I was on an emergency trip to Oklahoma this past weekend, a conglomeration of...

2016 Word of the Year
Hi!!! I am back from my blogging break! I have never taken a month-long break from blogging before, and I have to say that it was so nice. The end of the year always takes me down with birthdays (3 of the 4 kids) and Halloween into Thanksgiving into Christm...

Friday 5
Five Thoughts 1. The Random 5 link up no longer exists, apparently, so I am joining up with EmmyMom for her Friday 5 instead.     2. I don't have a Weekly Wrap-up this week because WE ARE ON CHRISTMAS BREAK! That's not entirely true, because we did finish u...

Weekly Wrap-up ~ Beautiful and Busy Days
Let's start with Friday! Like many of you, we had the most beautiful day! The temps were in the mid-60's and it was sunny and cheery! Fridays are "Freedom Friday" around here, where we wrap up some unfinished work and then I leave the kids to do some deligh...

I'm not going to lie. I am sitting here drinking coffee trying to will myself to get up and get moving today when I would really rather climb back in bed for another hour. I didn't sleep very good last night, so I am feeling a little sluggish. Drink another...

Random 5
1. Last week we saw a mouse ... then another one ... then more. We put out traps with peanut butter, in most closets, in the attic, in the basement, and they all got licked clean with nary a dead mouse. So then we put out poison. And it got eaten. And we st...

Ah ... Tuesday Coffee Chat . THAT I did miss in my blogging break! This week's topic: Let it Go! Is there anything you need to let go of before you can embark on this new year? And I am drawing a total blank. I've been so in the habit of letting things go o...

As you can probably tell, I am currently on an unscheduled blogging break. I do have things to post ... Eli's birthday, Holiday activities, Christmas, New Year's Eve, the annual 'Word of the Year', etc. But I just don't feel like blogging right now. No reas...

What's your biggest 'first world' problem? It's probably that I can't hardly get into my bedroom closet right now with all of the Christmas gifts that are piled in there needing to be wrapped. Each year Time Magazine names a 'Person of the Year', someone wh...

Story
Introduction
I am a 40ish year old wife and mom who recently moved back to her childhood hometown to simplify her life. I homeschool my two younger children, have one who is a junior in high school, and one who just graduated and is moving on to cosmetology school. I spend my days teaching, blogging, reading, gardening, and getting in an occasional power nap in between cleaning, cooking, and taking care of our four dogs. I am a homebody extraordinaire who loves nothing better than a comfy pair of pjs and an evening glass of wine, or a cup of hot green tea if it's cold.
