Living Proverbs 31

Hello dear readers! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready for another Monday. I’m not, but pretty sure that doesn’t matter to “Monday” ūüėČ Just have a couple features to share with you before moving on to the party. From Meghan Carver, I found a funny little post that reminded me quite well of my own homeschool days. As a homeschooler, things are often rather unconventional and “do what works” and kids learn. That’s what matters? Check […]

Wake up to a Clean House Every Morning by Doing This!

Tired of waking to a messy house? Wake up to a clean house every morning by doing this! Just a few minutes in the evening will make a huge difference!

Most evenings I’m exhausted. By the time supper is over and baby in bed I don’t want to do anything but veg on the couch, or better yet, just go to bed. But if I do that, I have to deal with a messy house in the morning before I can even officially start a new day. I wake up to a clean house every morning with these three little tricks. No, I don’t have a cleaning fairy, or friendly […]

Zucchini Pie Recipe ~ A Tasty Veggie Dessert

Start with 2-3 medium-sized zucchini. Each recipe calls for 3 cups of zucchini […]

If Momma Isn’t Happy, We Have a Problem

Image of young upset female feeling alone with her husband on background

It’s an old saying “If Momma Isn’t Happy, then Nobody’s Happy”. I find that statement to be pretty true. As the “queens of our homes” we are largely responsible for the attitudes that are found there. How we feel about order and cleanliness will be reflected in the overall appearance of our homes, and how we feel about life will be reflected in our family’s attitude. If we are short-tempered or easily frustrated, our kids will quickly pick up on that and […]

Living Proverbs 31

Hello lovely readers! How are you enjoying the outdoor sauna that much of the country is under? Me, not so much. I try not to complain during the winter, even when it’s bone chilling cold. Why? So I can complain now. I really struggle to breathe when it’s hot and humid and grocery shopping over the weekend was miserable. The good news is, my shopping is now done for another 2 weeks.

How to Get Rid of Washer Stink – Front Loader Mold

clean-washing-machine-1

I knew when I bought my front loader washing machine that I would likely have issues with mold and stink. But I love how well they clean huge loads (as long as they don’t stink) so chose one anyway. A front loading washer needs bi-weekly cleanings (or monthly in my case) to keep it clean and mold gone. Not a hard thing to do and typically it completely takes care of the smell. But lately my washer stunk every single […]

Hello dear readers, It is my custom to write a post of inspiration and/or encouragement to start off your week. On occasion that custom gets broken. Occasions like today, when the summer doldrums have struck and I find myself more interested in chilling with the family, than writing. I prayed several times over the past week for a topic, but none ever came to mind. It just seemed more important to love on my little man, and deal with something else […]

Food Storage Inventory Sheets

DSC_1528

Living in a land of plenty, we are blessed. If I go hungry it’s simply because I haven’t taken the time to eat. Food shortage isn’t an issue here. Food storage is. Because we live in a smaller home, I have to be very strategic and organized with my food storage technique. We buy most of our meat from farmers during the winter, and summer-time finds me preserving all sorts of fruits and vegetables. This means stuff really gets¬†piled into […]
