A Cozy Winter

Last summer the theme was “A Colorful Summer”. In the fall I chose, “A Joyful Autumn”. We’re now on “A Cozy Winter.” Even though with our drafty windows, I feel like wintertime is anything but cozy…. mostly I feel like calling it a chilly or dreary winter… but we’re aiming for positive, eh? Plus, I […]

p.s. it’s Saturday night

p.s.  my love, Jimmy, had the delightful experience of gathering groceries at Walmart on Saturday night.  Generally he sticks to the list.  But tonight, he came home with potato chips, oreos, twizzlers, and lots o’ hot chocolate packets.  Mostly it was just funny because it’s not like him to do that.  Tonight I might have […]

Sometimes you get what you ask for

Remember how I asked for no more barfing… please? Except for one small incident with Max, we have been blessed with no more barfing. BUT… now that we have no more barfing here at home, poor little Tru-Tru is worse. His eyes are red and runny. His nose is red and runny. He wants to […]

Scripture a Day : 6

I asked Miss Hannah what her favorite scripture was that I could share today. She said, “The one that used to be Abe’s favorite.” This used to be Abe’s favorite because he found a book called Jacob (also the name of a good friend). He opened it up, pointed, and landed on Jacob 5:71. And […]

No more BARFing, please.

Just yesterday I was thinking to myself (with a grateful heart) that we had been pretty lucky to avoid having lots of barfing sicknesses in our family over the past 8 years. Munch… crunch… I’m now eating my words. Shouldn’t have thought it… nope. Things swiftly change. Abe must have caught a flu bug yesterday […]

I’m an Amazon Mom

I heard recently about the benefits of joining Amazon Mom. At first I did it because there was no obligation and I got free Amazon Prime shipping for Christmas presents. Then I priced their diaper subscriptions and found I could save 6 cents + per diaper. Right now we buy LUVS at Walmart for 19 […]

Scripture a Day : 4

I guess I may not sneak these scripture posts in every day… as I seemed to miss day 3.  Anyhoo… this scripture I saw on the Thomas Kinkade painting in my piano room with this painting. LIGHT is always good… especially at 4 o’clock when all is crazy in the house. Hang on Heather!

The Adventures of Truman and Max

1. Piano Tunes from Tru 2. Emptying pots from the dishwasher (actually helpful!) 3. Unloading silverware (actually helpful!) 4. Max pushing Tru around the kitchen. Both loving it! Not safe, really! 5. Max trying to push Tru out of the picture.  I love Tru’s wee toothy grin. 6. Max feeding Buzz fishies. 7. A tower […]

2011: THREE little words… ONE big idea

I’ve been thinking for a few months now about my ONE LITTLE WORD for 2011. I kept coming back to all things I need to CHANGE in our home and our lifestyle to not just survive my life as mother but to ENDURE WELL … HAPPILY. So yes, I’m breaking all the One Little Word […]
