TypePad HTML Email That’s hilarious. It would drive me nuts to have that kind of mistake hanging on the wall in my room. But if you can live with it, so can I.

My mom has a growing collection of artwork in her bedroom, all pieces done by my siblings. She has been bugging me for a long time to make her some of my own art to hang on her walls. I don't use paint or pencil like my talented sisters, and... Continue reading

After the balmy end of January, February fell on us with the full force of winter. We had blizzard conditions throughout the day yesterday, while the snow fell on snow and ice. My mom came and stayed the night before the storm hit so we could all be snowed in... Continue reading

The weather this weekend has been amazing. Upper 60's. Light breeze. Sunny skies. Today the temperature is back down to the mid-40's and it is gloomy, but with the threat of snow early this coming week, even the 40 degree temperatures seem like a treat. On Friday, I took the... Continue reading

Yesterday was my mom's birthday (Happy Birthday, Grammie!), and River and Liam painted her a picture for the occasion. This was River's first experience with paint. I made a batch of warm cornstarch paint, following the recipe in First Art, because I knew River would want to taste it. The... Continue reading

Our snow from last week is gone now except for small patches on the north side of our house, but we bundled up and enjoyed the snow a few times before it melted away. Liam thought the snow was perfect for scooping with his trucks. We don't have a proper... Continue reading

Crazy is a good way to describe the whole thing. Crazy crazy. I’ll have to check out Fly Lady’s cleaning tips. My house is usually far from clean. Keeping the clutter at bay is often the best I can do, and the real cleaning is left undone… I think you’re right, it’s all about the baby steps. I try to spread it out through the week. For instance, Monday is for watering the houseplants. Did they get their drink yesterday? Nope. Maybe today...
Thanks, Amy. We love how the woodstove turned out too, and the warmth of the blazing fire does wonders for winter’s chill…but we sure do go through a lot of wood.

I spent the majority of my time last week cleaning our house. A little here. A little there. Trying to rid it of any germs hanging around for another chance at making life miserable. I kept the laundry going: load after load after load. I am so grateful for our... Continue reading

I know, I know. We never got a head-to-toe picture of me in my new outfit… I’ll probably wear the whole ensemble to church on Sunday, so I’ll be sure to take a picture then…

Yesterday, I made a kale smoothie following this recipe on Shutterbean. It was delicious, packed with vitamins and green goodness. the skeptic Liam wasn't impressed with it.He did take a few sips, but then he was done. But this guy likes everything I give him (except refried beans, which made... Continue reading

What's worse than being sick on your birthday? The entire family being sick. But just when I was starting to feel really pathetic and sorry for myself, these arrived on my doorstep: Thanks, Rachael And a lot of family and friends called with well-wishes, and there were even a few...

That flu knocked me off my feet for 5 days. I am feeling much much better now. Weak and congested, but at least no more fevers or body aches. Liam came down with it on Monday, the same day Gabriel left for a week long business trip. It's a good... Continue reading
