Yay! I have no plan for the blog at this point as all plans went out the window again. I have no desire to give up. I love to share & document what I work on & what is going on in my life. I am going to get back... Continue reading

Finally got a new computer & hoping to get things going again. I am just recovering from pneumonia so it will be a bit slow going getting everything transferred to this computer & getting things caught up, but I am very much looking forward to sharing with you all the... Continue reading

Still working on computer problems. I could swear that I am having the worst of luck this year....technology issues, family dying, appliances breaking, car troubles....I really hope my luck changes soon & I can actually get something accomplished! Will keep you posted, as I can. Continue reading

Sorry, get all software working and then hardware breaks. Not much access to a comp at the moment. Will update you as soon as I can. Continue reading

You work on a post and it doesn't want to post. Very frustrating. No, time to fix it now, so hopefully this works. Today we are working on clearing off our desks, or whatever we use as one. Let's get them cleared off, cleaned up and organized. Please let me... Continue reading

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I hope you got to spend some time with your families. Did you get over zealous and work on any challenges you didn't quite finish? I know I did. I didn't complete all of them, but I did work on some of them... Continue reading

Wow am I behind the ball curve again! I had to take some meds to sleep last night. It has me still very groggy and it is noon. Hopefully, I can get everything done today! So, yesterday we were working on straightening up our laundry room/area. It took me about... Continue reading

Well this week has gone by quickly! It feels like it is only Tuesday! Hope you got some work done with those cookbooks, yesterday! Did you clear out a bunch of space? Do you have a bunch of new recipes on your calender for this next month? I got mine... Continue reading

How did everyone do yesterday? To be totally honest, I only managed to locate and toss the broken dishes after I had done my post. I ended up dealing with sick children. But, I am happy to have that much less to do later. Today, we are focusing on our... Continue reading

I am running behind today! Hopefully, you will all be able to work on things with me today. How did we do yesterday? I got about half of my fridge cleaned out before my energy waned. I am telling you it is no fun being sick! I managed to toss... Continue reading

Forgive me if I don't get any of the themed posts out this week. I will do my best to have them out by Saturday, but with being sick I am finding it very difficult to think through my thought and none of the sentences sound right. I look forward... Continue reading

What a day! How far did you get on the pantry? Did you get to the counters? Did you complete both? I didn't get as far as I wanted. With being sick, I stuck to the 15 minute intervals. I don't think I could have mustered any more energy. It... Continue reading

I was really hoping when I woke up this morning that I would find that I had dreamed having this nasty cold. Unfortunately, I woke up to find I was still sick. (sigh) I am still going to be working along with you on our goals. Are you ready? Hopefully,... Continue reading

Apparently, my post for Sunday did not post. Just goes to show that you can easily miss doing the simplest steps when you are sick. I can't even find it under drafts, so I must have completely deleted it by accident. I hope that everyone had a restful Sunday! Let... Continue reading

I want to do a weekly round-up. I haven't decided just yet if I am going to do a formal round-up, answering a bunch of questions to tell you how life is right now, or if I will leave the formal part for the end of the month and just... Continue reading

2013... What to say about 2013? Well, it was a very rough year for my family. So many things happened, especially last minute, that I (and am sure the rest of the family) am still trying to recover from it all. I think one of the last things I had... Continue reading

Okay, I am a day late in posting this. I will be honest. Life got in the way. It became one of those things that my to-do list was longer than the section for them in my day planner and so not everything got done. Okay, not even half of... Continue reading

I used to be wonderful about saving money. And, somewhere between the time my husband came back from Korea, and now, I have completely lost sight of saving. What little savings we did have, disappeared this last year. I will fill you in more on that on a later post.... Continue reading

If you follow me for any length of time you will hear a lot about Big Picture Classes, and each of the classes that I take. I absolutely love Big Picture Classes, love the people there, and just can not get enough of the wonderful inspiration that is shared there!... Continue reading

Outside Thursdays is kind of like my way of saying out of the norm. It can also be used for the more literally meaning of outside. I just thought it would be a fun way to describe what I am posting. Anyway, many of us decorated for the holidays in... Continue reading

It is the time of year to start thinking about taxes, and if you are Alaskan your PFD's. Starting today, Alaskans can start signing up for their yearly Permanent Fund Dividend. I highly recommend getting that done early, so you have plenty of time to update things, if needs be.... Continue reading

This class started today at Big Picture Classes, and I am completely excited! I have taken the year long version of this class for the last 2 years. It has provided inspiration and in some cases motivation. Yes, I admit, I have not followed this class as closely as I... Continue reading

Every year I try to make cards for all my family for every reason. Some years I do alright and others (like this last year) not so much. It is one of my goals to fix that this year. So, I had decided to create cards and post them on... Continue reading
