Blogtober day 19 Freshly made bed

Hello all. Well this one is one that I will miss out on doing.  

Freshly Made Bed

You see I think my bedroom is personal and private between my husband and I. That being said, I find it weird taking pictures of my bedroom. Especially to post on social media. If you agree or disagree, it doesn't matter, my way of thinking and feeling is my way of thinking and feeling. I'll still love ya!

But on another note, I can tell you that I love the crispness of sheets that have been put out on the line in the fall of the year, and the freshness they bring in. They are a little rough and not soft like being in a dryer. No dryer sheet could ever match the scent of the fresh outdoors. god has a amazing way with all things he has made.

Blessing to you and yours!!

Blogtober Day 18 Throwback Thursday

To be honest,,I have nothing for this one. But I will at least try. HA HA. So for a Throwback Thursday I thought and thought about what I was a supposed to do. I even googled what it meant.

I took the last meaning off because of a curse word. But it didn't have any meaning anyway.
So my throw back is going to be of a picture of me from back in the day when my daughter was still in elementary school and one of me now. Hey not much has changed other than me getting much older.   This is the one of me when I was younger. I had these pictures took with my daughter and my mom. Glamour Shots is what they was called and they was all the hype back then. 

Tada,,here I am today.           Much older and much more mature.  Like I said not much has changed. So this is my Throwback Thursday. 

May this be a blessing to you. Always know that you are beautiful no matter what age you become. 


Blogtober Day 17 My favorite thing about Fall

So this is a little late getting out, our homeschool group had a field trip yesterday so I was busy all day.

Good morning folks!! Today I have a field trip so this will be short. The topic that was chosen for today is what " My favorite thing about fall is". 

I must say that Autumn is my favorite all time favorite time of year. the air gets a little bit cooler. Those that know me know that I can't handle the heat. With my breathing issues and my allergies heat is not my friend. In the fall of the year the breeze is crisp and clear. Like its cleansing to me. There is a freshness about it. Sitting on a porch in the fall of the year drinking coffee first thing in the morning watching the sun rise wrapped in a blanket or house coat,,oh MY!! There is nothing more better. The autumn colors just amaze me. God has painted the most beautiful colors in the fall of the year.  Yes I know spring is pretty and full bloom,,but see what He does with those colors. He makes them darker shad…

Blogtober Days 15 & 16 One goal this month, and Whats on my desk

Since yesterday was Sunday and our time together as a family to worship, I chose not to write. We are just to busy on Sunday's to do much of anything. Yesterday we had Homecoming at church with a fellowship meal afterwards and the husband preached on the radio broadcast. So today I am going to combine both days. Which shouldn't be that hard.

So yesterday the post was about a GOAL that I wanted to accomplish this month. 

Well I can go ahead and tell you that it is to finish this months homeschooling lessons without being behind. So far so good, but you never know what may arise and knock us off our game. It never fails when we are ahead something comes along, but I am hopeful not this month.

Today's subject is  Whats on my desk.  Well as with many people's personal work desk it is a bit cluttered. 

I have homeschool books, a dinosaur, note pad, pens, Daily Devotional book, a few magazines,  my camera, a bottle of linen spray and folded socks. Yes I said folded socks. HAHAAA…

Blogtober Day 14 My Favorite Spot in the House

Good morning folks. I pray you all had a great night and was restful. Today's blog post is about my favorite spot in my house. To be honest with you, I have never really thought about a favorite spot in my house. I stay in my office area more than I do anywhere else due to being a homeschool mom. I love the kitchen, there are lots of wonderful creations made and shared. In the kitchen lots of warm conversations have been made at my table. Growing up, grown ups sat at the kitchen table and had coffee and conversations us children were to little to hear. They would send us out to play so they could be in private. Now me being a grown up, those conversations are not all so private, ha. I think they just wanted us out of the house, Today when I visit friends or family we do the same, the table is where we have long wonderful conversations. Still I wouldn't say it is my favorite spot. It's a comfort spot.

I love my front porch. I guess if I had to have a favorite spot it would b…

Blogtober Day 13 The New Recipe

So today when I went over to see what today's blog was supposed to be about, there was nothing there for the slot on the 13th.  Matter of fact the 13 wasn't to be found any where on the picture. I wonder if it was left out because of superstition? You know, it's Friday the 13th of October oooohhhh.  Yea lots of people have issue with that. Me I have JESUS!!

Anywho,,on to my own invented day 13 for the Blogtober.

I chose to do a new recipe.

Youtube an be awesome at times. I have found a whole new channel on there, that since I have been watching it, I have learned lots of new recipes and how to's.  I mean it's been a wow factor for me. The lady that owns the channel lives in Canada. She does things totally like our forefathers would have done to be sustainable and frugal.  Canning every thing she can get in a jar, baking her own breads and pastries, dehydrating every thing she can, including Chicken Broth!!! They grow their own meat and process it, chicken's, goats…

Blogtober Day 12 The Husband

Well it's better to start late than never to begin at all. You may be thinking "what is she talking about?"  Well I am talking about a link up party that is called Blogtober. It began on the first day of October, but I just now found out about it. It's a encouragement to blog each day about a certain subject.  So I begin today. 

The subject of today is My Husband. 
There is so much that I could say about the man that I married. It may bore you so I won't be long. I am head over heals in love with this man so much that my sister in law says that I have been brain washed into thinking he is just that great.

He is the shepherd of our little family, he is the great provider of that flock, he is a gentleman, a friend, a brother and a son. He rises early and leaves for work everyday, 5-6 days a week. 4:30 am comes early for some. His days don't end till sometimes 6-8 pm. His hours are long and hard but with each step of the day he reminds him-self that he does this n…

Maybe I am to Straight forward

Well today has just been one of those days. You know where you getup and think "I'm going to do something productive today" and that is as far as it goes. I did however get two kitchen cabinets cleaned out. More space to just fill back up , RIGHT!!

SO any ways after a tedious three hrs of homeschooling we finally got it all accomplished with only taking one hour away of tablet time. Oh and you would have thought I had killed him. It broke his heart, especially since I stuck to the punishment. Anyway off topic,,I am rambling.  As I sat down to rest I got to thinking of this blog and how certain topics do better than others. Got me to thinking about my posts. Then I come to the realization,, a ah ha moment, that sometimes when I write i'm just too straight forward. 

It just sort of gets put out there. Sometimes I have not sympathy on the subject or sometimes I don't show grace. The bible says this about Grace:: 

1 Peter 4:10 As every man hath received the gift, even s…

Our Son's First Fishing Attempt

Well we finally did it. We finally took our little boy fishing. He is seven years old and has been wanting to go for ever in a day. A really good friend of ours said that she would take him. So off to the pond we went.

Now our little guy I don't think thought this through. He is not very patient and his attention span comes and goes. But we tried anyways.  He didn't catch anything but he tried. If you count all of 10 minutes trying. HAHA. He got tired of waiting.

He would rather be digging in the mud or trying to get in the water.  I knew that he wasn't ready for this but had to let him see for his-self. He loves to explore and find bugs or lizard, creepy crawlers as I call it. That is right up his alley. Fishing not so much except holding the fish and looking at it. Exploring a fish. That's it. Our friend caught several fish and she let him hold each one she caught. That made his day more than trying to catch it his-self.  All in all it was a great evening watching al…
