Good Grief

A few months ago I was at my annual Gynecologist appointment.  As I checked in the receptionist was going over my emergency contact info.  She asked, if my current address was the same, and what my cell number was. She then told me she has my husband Curt listed as an emergency contact. I didn’t…

The A’s of life!

I remember about 8 years ago or so, our church was having all it’s members take part in this “spiritual gifts survey.”  As part of the program we were to meet with one of the pastors to discuss our “results.”  I specifically recall the pastor  asking me, “so you have had no major traumatic life…

Been jammin!! – Freezer Jam

I just LOVE strawberry season!!  Fresh strawberries are in abundance where I live in farm country! So every year I make lots of strawberry jam…….unfortunately I did not have a lot of time to make my usual 12-15 pints of jam. So I bought ONE quart of strawberries and made 4 pints of jam…….it took…

Snow/Slow!

Isn’t it nice how a simple 3 inches of snow can just slow life down for a moment!  We had a glorious 2 hour school delay, and it was so nice to just ease into the day.  Sleep in a bit, sip some coffee while I read the newspaper, do a little evil laundry, (sorry…

I have been quite addicted to Twitter lately.  It took me awhile to figure it all out…..but now that I am getting it I love it!  As a result I have found tons of new blogs I like.  Including Elizabeth Esther.  She is starting a new blog carnival called Saturday Evening post.  The goal is…

5 minutes in a car

I was thinking about something The Inventor told me the other day, and that reminded me of  something SportTman and I had been discussing.  It was at that point I realized that both of these insightful, bonding conversations took place during our drive to school in the morning. I am so fortunate to teach in…

Corn

The corn is gone,  I noticed it the other day while out for a bike ride workout.  I could now see the beautiful fall view beyond the tall corn.  It has now all been harvested, and stored away for the winter.   There is nothing left but a brown faded stump of a corn stalk.  It…

Friday Fave Five

Friday again….how did that happen!? 🙂 What a week, I am thankful for some down time to reflect on the week. I LOVE the stunning fall colors I see in my front yard! I got out for a nice, long bike ride on a beautiful evening yesterday.  I love the stunning beauty of this time…

Not Me Monday

I have not participated in a Not Me Monday in some time, but after a few vintage goofs on my parts I decided to let the world know that us busy women can all be prone to losing their minds at times!  For more NOT ME fun visit MckMamma. It was NOT ME that put…
