You Can’t Do Everything

Posted by Hallee on Jan 24, 2012 in Blog Stuff, Housekeeping, Life

I’d been tossing around the idea of quitting blogging for about three months now. I really started thinking about it as soon as it dawned on me just how much less free time I have during the day when I no longer conducted my marriage via long distance means. Since I feel very strongly that the Holy Spirit is who led me to starting the blog, I started praying about it.

He’s Home, Here’s What Happened, & An Exciting Giveaway Announcement

Posted by Hallee on Jul 26, 2010 in Blog Stuff, Family, Giveaways, Life, Love

So, I went to bed Tuesday night praying that things would work out. I didn’t hear from Gregg Wednesday morning, and briefly wondered if he was working or on a plane. Wednesday afternoon, he instant messaged me from the Dubai airport! AND, he would be home on Thursday! TWO full days earlier than originally scheduled.

Posted by Hallee on Apr 5, 2010 in Blog Stuff, Giveaways

I’m sitting on a beach in Florida with my kids, enjoying this beautiful April weather.

I’m taking the week off from my normal blogging schedule. Instead, I have different recipes queued to post daily.

But as I relax and take a break, please take a moment to enter this month’s give-away!

As we enter the beginning of gardening season, I could not help but offer the following as a give-away for the month of April

A Plea for Ideas

Posted by Hallee on Mar 23, 2010 in Housekeeping

That’s toothpaste. Those of you who know me personally 0n Facebook may remember The Great Toothpaste Incident of 2010. I thought letting it dry and then scrubbing it off with a brush would be the best idea.

Bad idea.

It’s been scrubbed, wiped, cleaned, and now steam cleaned. This is over the course of a few weeks.

Clean Sweep

Posted by Hallee on Mar 23, 2010 in Housekeeping, Life

Spring cleaning made a lot of sense for centuries. When homes were heated with wood or coal, the winter heating season brought a build-up of soot and ash on walls, furniture, and fabrics. Spring cleaning marked the end of the heating season, when the entire house was aired and scrubbed clean, when windows could be opened and the winds of spring would blow through the house, refreshing it.

Taco Dinner

Tacos are one of our fun night meals. The kids can pick something other than milk to drink with dinner, and they have a good time eating it.

Whole Wheat Vanilla Wafers

Posted by Hallee on Mar 11, 2010 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

I found this recipe on Heavenly Homemaker’s site. The only thing that I do differently is to use vanilla beans instead of vanilla extract. We have grown to love this recipe! Gregg has always loved a snack of vanilla wafers and peanut butter. I love that I found such a healthy recipe. I send a batch or two with every care package to Gregg, and use them when I make Banana Pudding and Mascarpone Cheesecake with Almond Crust.

Hearty 16-Bean Soup

Posted by Hallee on Feb 24, 2010 in Daniel Fast, diet & fasting, Hallee's Galley, Leviticus, Recipes, Soups

When we bought the wheat berries for my grain mill, we went ahead and added a 6-gallon bucket of 16-bean soup mix. The shipping was moderate because we already had a good sized shipment coming, and the price per pound was WAY cheaper than an already cheap meal that much cheaper.
