Month: May 2011

The Garden Week 1

We’ve had the wettest April in recorded history here in central Kentucky, so I’m a couple of weeks behind where I was last year at this time. But, it’s also been unusually cold so it’s good that I couldn’t get out to the yard and get it tilled until now. I ran the tiller last week, and then this past Monday and finally got the seeds and seedlings into the rich Kentucky earth.


This is the Time of Year…

…that floors go unswept, dishes sit in the dishwasher, and laundry is lucky to make it from washer to dryer before having to be re-washed. That ground gets tilled, seeds get planted, and flower pots and beds get filled.


Two Days Left!

I know I haven’t pushed this — I’m not a focused homeschooling blog and I don’t pretend to be. However, it would be fun to make it into the top 25.


Menu Monday 09 MAY 2011

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of May 9th. I’m keeping the menu simple this week, because I have a lot of work to do in the garden. As far as desserts go, Kaylee is fasting from sugar this week, so I’m going to just have some fresh berries and (unsweetened) whipped cream to eat as a dessert, and I’m not going to make anything here that would tempt her.

When I Grow Up, I Want to Be a Mom, Part I

I have been mentally working on a post on this topic for some time. It’s always kind of been there, in the background, but several months ago, I was blog surfing and came across a blog called Homemaking on a Whim and a post titled, “Is Working Outside the Home a Sin?” The title kind of threw me off guard, and I dug a little deeper into it, finding the reference to another series of articles on a blog called Courageous Homemaking.


Being a Good Friend

I’m not a great friend.

Really, I’m not.

The worst part about it, though, is that I have terrific friends. I have the best friends and I could call any one of them and they’d be here in a heartbeat.
