This is atypical for me, but I’m TRYING to off load these books and make some mullah for my school needs for next year. I’m also in PURGE mode and having these boxes of books sitting in my living room is MAKING ME CRAZY!!!!! I’m not counting these in my purge numbers since they didn’t really originate in(…)

CSA Week #5

CSA Week #5

YAY! More delicious food! Some repeats and some new! I have to say I like how it isn’t the same veggies each week. Or a box full of 3 heads of cabbage and 15 green and red peppers! I love the variety, the colors and the flavors! Ah! As I said a few weeks ago…(…)

CSA Week #4

CSA Week #4

YAY! More fresh veggies have arrived! I was so sad not to have received my box last week because of the holiday. I’m so glad we are back up and running! I was getting bare fridge and needed a refill! I’ve also heard the same echoed from you as well!

2014 Purge {Update}

2014 Purge {Update}

I’ve been encouraged by how much we have been able to clean up and weed out! Our home is only 1000 square feet with two bedrooms and 6 people living here… And hardly any closets. We did partially finish the attic so that we could use part of it for storage, but even that isn’t(…)

Raw Vanilla Lime Cookies

No CSA delivery this past week because of the 4th of July holiday. Many of my friends were wondering why… this isn’t a big holiday… however… it is a big holiday! Our Nation’s birthday! And our farmer has been working hard for us to eat delicious foods! So shouldn’t he get a day off? By(…)

God Can’t Sleep

God Can’t Sleep

God Can’t Sleep By Palmer Chinchen, PD This book was very different than I expected. I thought it was going to be about God and suffering and how God doesn’t sleep when we go through trials. And while it was about that it took a different path than I expected.

Our 9th Anniversary

Our 9th Anniversary

I’m not a hopeless romantic, although my husband could probably be more described as such! Wednesday was our anniversary and we were on a family vacation with no one to watch the kids, so we really didn’t do anything special, like going out to eat or a night away or anything like that.

Guest Post {Shone}

A while back a dear friend of mine guest posted about their upcoming adoption (and I posted (2 years ago) some family photos that she took for us). In the process they have also felt called to get involved somehow, someway in Ethiopia. Not sure what that meant they took a trip there and God(…)

Bedroom Decor {Crafting}

The room project is marching on. Little by little I’m getting there! Homeschooling is getting closer to a close for the year and that’s giving me a little more time. It’s also making me itch for summer and more freedom to do more fun projects without school hanging over my head!
