Pattern Give-away !

Linda (blogger) along with Marie-Madeline Studio, is giving away fabric and a pattern! Find the details here:

I've posted my comment - I love the Route 66 ankle length denim skirt :) Wish I had one!

Wow .. it's been a long time!

I can't believe it's been so lon since I've posted to this blog. I wish I were better at blogging. I'm going to incorporate blogging into my sons Homeschool this year, so maybe that will help me keep up with my own.

I'll try to post something interesting later this week .. till then ..

God Bless ! :)

Beautiful Photography

My dh sent me this url today. Arent' these photos beautuiful?

Makes me want to break out my (very simple) Canon camera and take some shots myself :)

Been Awhile - and new adventures

Well, It's been awhile since I posted. Life has been so busy lately. I'm feeling better overall. I'm not as depressed and aimless. Guess that's owing to the decision to homeschool my oldest! He was having trouble with anxiety and other factors and so we decided to pull him out of his 3rd quarter at 7th grade and I will teach him for now. We decided to homeschool through 8th grade, and then re-evaluate at that time. It's very possible that we will finish his high school at home as well as homeschool my youngest once he gets to 6th grade (which is middle school here.). Most of the time this week it's been a good thing. We've had one or two small skirmishes, but no huge blow-ups, so that's good. We are both learning together now. I have to learn to teach him, and how he learns, and he needs to learn to treat his "mom" as his "teacher". But he does enjoy having his afternoons free for the most part.

Here's a video I just saw today. Very kewl in my opinion.

More snow .. yuck

It snowed again over the weekend, and it's snowing now. I'm really tired of this snow. I could really use some sunshine .. and some warmth. It's 25 right now .. which I could actually be ok with if it was sunny and not snowing! I really have the urge to go out and take a walk or a bike ride, but it's just too nasty out.

I'm listening to different music, and found this one.

It's very beautiful! Makes me want to go find a warm river and just listen and watch creation. I miss the greenery, and the birds, and the animals .. :(

Still struggling

Ok, I'm still struggling with this concept of - maybe it's ok to spend money on myself or for something that I want.

I would like to get out of the house today - but in the same breath - I would hate to waste the gas (money) on me getting out of the house to do nothing .. plus, if I go where I want to go, I'll spend money, and it's a double waste to spend money on a book or something that I will probably only read once.

The only thing we really need is bread and a few basic groceries. But if I go to the store, then I'll probably buy more then what we absolutely need, and it will be a failure to spend more than necessary. *sigh*

Why can't I get out of that thought process ?

Today Today Today

Well, I had bible study this morning. And I'm feeling ok today. I'm hungry all the time since I'm counting calories again :( but I'm making it ok. Haven't broken down and eaten a whole symphony 1lb bar ! :) That's always a good thing. I'm on track for calories today, but I'm still so hungry. Guess I got more out of shape calorie-wise then I thought!

In study we are talking about prayer, and how we should make our lives a continuous prayer to God, a continuous relaitonship and communication between us and God. I know that He is my constant companion, but I think sometimes I block him out. Not intentionally, but just by allowing "life" to come between me and Him. Something I'm going to work on - keeping my focus on God and not on all the petty life issues.

I think I'll go watch Charmed .. (not really cohesive today uh? lol)
