The Simple Woman's Daybook
It's been forever since I have done a Daybook entry. Tuesday Coffee Chat has taken the rest of the summer off, so I am jumping back into a favorite from days gone by. Looking out my window ... it's already muggy hot and sunny. I am thinking ... about my Kyn...

Wednesday Hodgepodge
I'm getting my Hodgepodge answers up late this evening because we have had a crazy week! I'm in bed super early with my book, my crossword, and my computer, just chilling. Do you find yourself influencing your world, or is it more the other way around? I am...

How did you welcome the month of July, and tell us one fun thing you did to celebrate the 4th. On July 1st I jumped up super early to go for a run and then head out for my grocery shopping. After getting all the groceries put away I drove the hour to my par...

It's officially summer (in the northern hemisphere anyway). Which summer month is best and why? August. It's my birthday. We take a week trip to my parents' lakehouse with our Okie friends each August. We take the month off from school in anticipation of ou...

How Well Do You Know Him?
I saw this and thought it would be fun to do in honor of Father's Day. The first few questions were easy, but the further I went the more I am thinking I might not know him as well as I think I do. I don't know, what do you think, Rick? He's sitting in fron...

Weekly Wrap-up ~ Summer Week 4
Although I am certainly not glad that Brynne has been having back problems, her need to shut down her sporting activities has sure made this a peaceful week! This was Rick's week to work in Oklahoma, Dawson has been working, Dawson's friend (and our new liv...

Tuesday Coffee Chat
What journey do you most want to take? It can be a geographical place, an emotional or spiritual quest, or even a creative pursuit. I received a comment this morning from a long-time blog follower I didn't even know I had. She told me that she has followed ...

An Anniversary Trip to Missouri's Wine Country
Hermann, Missouri, is a quaint little town on the Missouri River. Germans settled there hundreds of years ago and quickly determined that it was the perfect location to grow grapes and produce wines. Stone Hill wine is a popular wine that you can find at mo...

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.
