Proselytizing:The Ugly “P” Word

Recently, I visited one of my favorite blog sites. Okay, it’s my absolute FAVORITE BLOGSITE EVER!  Hands-down – it’s numeral uno!  This blogger makes me laugh and helps me enjoy life a little bit more through her blog posts.  Hr blog, turned empire, has not only hypnotized me, but apparently half of ...

Ring Worm Girl?

About a week or so ago, in this post, I shared that Autumn Joy caught ringworm.  I was pretty okay with that since ringworm is easily contracted and easily treatable.  No stigma needs to be attached (yeah right) as many kids in school catch it. - One week after treating her ringworm with ...

The Good, the Bad and the Best!

What are your parent-teacher conferences like? We recently endured experienced our first round for the school year.  Made me feel like I was in that classic country western: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. I have four school aged kids: John, The Homeboy, who’s in the eleventh grade; Josiah, A.K.A. ... [ Read More ]

Happy Birthday, Ash-Cat!

Today is my Ashley’s birthday. She is an amazing (where did the time go?) 23-years-old. - She’s known to some as Ash-Cat-Kitty-Kitty-Meow-Mix.  But she’s known to me as Jamie (No One Else calls her that – though I don’t mind if they do.  Her siblings hardly know it’s her name.  I guess it’s a ...

Little House Lessons: Appreciation

I have a love/hate relationship with my home. I love my little home. It’s so small that it reminds me of Laura’s Little House on the Prairie, or her Little House in the Big Woods (which is the first place that she actually lived). I can sit in my kitchen and look clear across my living room ... [ Read More ]

Kids Say the Darndest Things

We recently discovered that Autumn Joy had ringworm on her neck.  For those of you who have kids who go outside the home for school (non-homeschoolers), you know that kids catch this sort of thing as easily as they breathe air, especially since it is highly contagious.  Once it’s detected, you ...

Dad: My Hero!

Just how old is a gal before she no longer believes that her dad is Superman?    -   Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve had the biggest, widest eyes for my dad.  I fondly remember sitting on the commode in my pajamas in the wee hours of the morning watching him shave, quietly watching him ...

Run Baby, Run!

Today is my co-workers birthday.  Her name is Jenny.  - What up J-Lo?  J-High?!  I normally don’t give birthday shout-outs to co-workers on my blog, but with Jenny its different because she’s special.  Ooh-Ahh! No, she’s not my homey from around the way; we don’t eat lunch together at work or ... [ Read More ]

She Calls Me “Sweet Pea”

This is me and my Mom... (Pardon the pemanent dust and stains and my crude Photo Shop attempt to add "coverage" to the top of my highschool graduation dress.  I wore this bad boy before I understood what modesty was.  This picture has lived on a shelf in my living room for the past seven ...

Little House Lessons: Contentment

I Love the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I love them because Laura’s recollection of her childhood, which is described in such vivid detail that it’s astonishing, is incredibly warm and loving.  It reminds me of every thing a child’s life should be: happy, contented, safe and filled ...

Modest Apparel?

I’m so excited because I just came from an awesome Wednesday night Bible study at church. The topic tonight was “modesty” and I must say the message was relevant, timely and it penetrated my heart, but isn’t that just like the word of God anyway?... For the word of God is quick, and powerful, ... [ Read More ]

“Apple World!”

This past Saturday, my family and I went apple picking at Masker Orchards in Warwick, NY. - Our trip was a lot of fun but the ride was way long: a planned two-hour ride turned into a two-and-a-half to three-hour ride. - Here's what that translates into: ... [ Read More ]

Summers Down South, A Retrospective

Spending my summers down south as a child... - I went barefoot and felt the earth under my feet and the dirt between my toes, I swung from a tree swing in my Grandma's front yard, and I experienced the free-ness of walking through unmarked dirt paths with cousins and ... [ Read More ]
