So to keep my brain busy and happy while it’s winter I have been coming up with some fun stuff today. Like earlier this week, I improvised on a carrot muffin recipe and it was pretty sweet. (I’ll post it at the bottom) The same day we made a big batch of corn muffins as [...]

Today was supposed to be a better day. It’s 11:15 and I am exhausted from the very little bit I managed to do this morning. I couldn’t do school. I just scrapped our usual routine and went for the muffin recipe and the art books. The girls are now creating portraits of some of their [...]

Today I feel like I would like to hide in the bathroom or behind the bed all day. Just slightly trapped and don’t want to be here. But it’s ok. I hid for a few minutes inside my hoodie next to a heating vent and now I am brewing a cup of cranberry/pomegranate tea. I [...]

Holy cow! The inner fight is intense! Whenever we drive Craig to work, and especially on cold, dark, snowy mornings I cannot get my mind off of McDonalds for breakfast. I can hear the hot coffee, the bacon egg and cheese biscuits and orange juice calling me. It would be soooo easy to just turn [...]

And I could never figure out why. Why would a declaration of trying to be more of the example that Jesus set annoy me? I don’t [...]

I can see my girls growing, changing, stretching right before my very eyes. And it’s freaking me out a bit. Of course they have to change. Did I think they were just going to stay in the preschool phases forever? Juliet I expect to see changes in. While I’m always struck by Juliet’s development, Layla [...]

We currently have a foot of snow on the ground and we’re supposed to get another six inches tonight. Matt, Jenn and Tom came over tonight to be snowed in with us all! Along with letting the dogs in and out, Uncle Matt running around like a madman with the girls, and watching some questionable [...]

I do love being creative. One of my greatest joys in life is sitting down (or pacing around) and figuring out a project and then executing it. Granted, it’s rare something gets finished, but it’s probably more the process than the result that I get a kick out of.
As you all know, in another 6 [...]
