I’ve done it again– rearranged the blog furniture! I was tired of all the nagging little nuisances of the old template (which was actually a combination of two different ones). I just loved the old header, and hate to part with it, but I couldn’t make it work with this theme. I like the sleekness […]

WARNING! Lengthy article ahead about homeschooling! lol Well we’re gearing up for another school year here. Like I’ve said before, I homeschool, but it’s a unique homeschool.

Comments Off on A Review of Febreze Refresher Decor

I remember when Febreze first came out. It was amazing! Before, the only real recourse for removing odors from fabrics and furniture was to douse the thing in baking soda and water. And HOPEFULLY the stink would leave. I don’t know about you, but I am a frugal shopper. That means, I buy used furniture! […]

Of course you don’t, lol! The kids and I worked on the yard more today. We finished a good portion of the side yard that I call my “Secret Garden.” It’s a narrow strip of the property that is close to the neighboring parking lot. Here I am on one side of the property; my […]

My kids absolutely LOVE to dress up. They used to make dress ups clothes for each other for Christmas gifts, made out of old scraps of fabric, cardboard and duct tape. They were actually pretty ingenious outfits, but they didn’t last long. One of the kids’ favorites was Bibleman. I once shelled out the big […]

Phewwwwwwwwww that “dairy air” coming from the local farm is might stinky today. I live in town, but there’s a dairy farm about 2 miles down the road. Because the humidity is back up again, the air is heavy with the stench of manure. Wow, the scent is staggering. There’s a sign by the farm […]
