You will always find encouragement here for keeping a tidy home. I will always be first in line to tell you the importance of having a household cleaning/maintenance schedule and sticking to that schedule.

However, I am a fallible woman. I am not perfect, and neither is my home. Oh, […]

Signs of the season. Laying up hay for the coming winter months. Here’s Copper headed out to cut the fall hay.

LOL!!! Don’t we wish!!! Nah, just so happened that that piece of harvesting equipment was rolling down the road just as I was out snapping pictures of our “real” haying. We are […]

It could just be because our mailbox is currently being flooded daily with campaign and election flyers. It could be because I’ve completely abandoned my time-honored system of dealing with catalogues and am now looking at a HUGE stack on my counter. It could be because I’ve spent the last two weeks being injured […]

Well, the time has arrived that I’ve been dreading. The Works in Progress that I most long to show you are destined to be Christmas gifts for family members who read my blog. Sigh. Well, I will definitely take pictures and have quite a post-Christmas finished projects post!

Here are some things I […]

When I think about my favorite things, a few “big” things come to mind; but, really, it’s the little things in my life that make me happy. Content.

Today I’m happy for my back being, almost, pain free. I made it until mid-afternoon yesterday with no pain relievers, and then just took regular […]

Being down for the better part of ten days, I’ve had lots of thinking time. Too much, probably! This year we’re really not having any problems with curriculum or materials fitting us, but I do see some things that need to be changed a bit. This happens, for us, most every fall. We start […]

It’s almost the first of November. Yep, hard to believe, but it’s true. For some of you, this means that homeschooling has been back in full swing for two months. How’s it going? Finding some things that are not quite going as well as you’d hoped? Surprised to find that something you thought might […]

I had planned to get back to blogging today. But, after reading a few of my daily blog reads, I decided against it.

Instead, I want to direct you to Karen’s blog. We’ve been praying for her for sometime now, and I have been so encouraged in my own faith in reading her husband, […]

Letting go is hard for me. I take ownership of things, and then I do not want to let them go for anything. My home is like that. I like my home to be kept in a certain manner, and for things to be done on certain days. I really don’t mind if they’re […]

I want to thank you all so much for your kind wishes and prayers for me this week. I’ve had my back go out on me before, but NEVER like this! I’m tellin’ ya, the pain makes transition labor pain pale in comparison! I am back on my feet, sorta. As of 5:00 a.m. […]
