A Teaser

I’ve been quiet for a while here in the blogging world, but it’s not for lack of writing, I assure you.  My love of writing isn’t going anywhere soon, that’s for sure.

I’m not ready to tell all about the project I’m working on, but I’m going to start giving some teasers.  Here’s one:

research 1910-1920.jpg

Do you ever find yourself saying “oh how I wish I had paid more attention in high school”?  Well, I am finding myself saying this: “why didn’t I love history back then”.  Kind of like when I was in my early twenties traveling the world doing missions work… I didn’t do well in Geography class, but after all my travel and love of geography now, I would have been a Geography nut.

In a good way.

Pay attention in school, kids 😉

So here I am reading these books about amazing people that walked this country not that long ago…  If you haven’t figured it out from the names of those titles, I’m researching 1914-1920 ish.  Over the Great War (or World War I for Continue reading “A Teaser”

Happy New Year! What’s Coming Up…

Happy New Year readers!

My family and I just returned a few days ago from the warm (or was warm) Florida… now I hear it’s a bit cooler. But it can’t be nearly as bad as the -25 celsius but feels like -33 celsius weather we have here in Ontario.  It’s so cold, you walk out and you feel like you just took a huge sip of a ice cold slushy.  That’s right.  Brain freeze.  Cause you went outside.  Welcome to Canada!

I have decided that, seeing as we seem to be having a much colder than usual winter, this is a great season for me to hide away in my house with my family and write!  And read.  I’m loving this new venture of reviewing books for Bethany House.  But more than that I’m loving this new 52 week Bible reading program I’ve started.  You can down load a copy if you’d like here.  I’m pumped to read my Bible through this year.  Last year was more of a year for study of certain subjects (one being the Proverbs 31 woman).  Do you have a plan for scripture reading this year?

I have quite a few posts in the works… recipes for biscuits, maple bbq chicken, a couple of vegetarian recipes, I have new review coming your way MONDAY Continue reading “Happy New Year! What’s Coming Up…”

First Week of Jk Behind Us and A Little Announcement

Well folks, our first week of junior kindergarten is behind us.  I doubt that I have ever known a youngster to love jk more than my kid.

Seriously.  He was a bit put off that he couldn’t go tomorrow… which is Saturday.  Aren’t kids supposed to be stoked for Saturday?

From my last post you may know that J’s first day of school I was awake at 4:30 am.  You’ll be happy to know that I not only survived the day but that I also put grumpiness away around 6:30… especially once realizing that my husbands sleep was just as sabotaged as my own.  The kids slept past 7… seriously, the only time that happened all week.  And J LOVES school!  Yes!  E, our youngest, is seriously missing his older bro and I am now in full swing of finding playdates, and in full cheer up mode every morning.  It’s devastating.  I’m not sure which is harder for E… that Continue reading “First Week of Jk Behind Us and A Little Announcement”
