Busy few months

Good Morning everyone 🙂

It has been a while since I last wrote, sorry about that. I hope your all doing well, and enjoying this beautiful sun and warm spring(almost summer like) air.

We’ve been extremely busy these past few months, and I haven’t been able to catch 5 minutes really with so much going on to write. I have been compiling thoughts, ideas, and recipes as I’m thinking about adding a few new idea’s to my website sales stuff.

Through, my own children’s adult experiences, I’m learning that sometimes we as adults teaching our children things, they have forgotten as they didn’t absorb, our teachings, or need an occasional reminder. Here’s a funny story that in the end, comes out good in the end.

So my oldest child messages me one day, complaining about how much her toilet STINKS. So as an inquisitive person. I asked, why does it smell? I was told, because we can’t flush it. So of course I ask why can’t you? and I’m told because last night(this is now 24hrs later) they turned off our water. So, I asked. Didn’t you fill your tub with water prior to the shut off? and of course the response I got was well no! LOL God, I love my children 🙂 When asked why, would we have done that? and I explained because then you could flush the toilet with the water in the tub. The following messages were a OMG I remember us having to do that when I was a kids….blah, blah. I forgot!!!

This is the moment I realized that maybe something like a book for teens, or first time out on there own person needs. That friendly go too, or reminder of things some people might not know, or forgot about.

Do you have stories like this one?

Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year from all of us, to all of you, and yours!!!

We hope the new years brings you, happiness and good health.

See, you all in the new year 😉

Summers coming to an end :(

How many of you enjoy fall weather?

If, you could imagine a beautiful fall day, how or what would it look like?  would it be full of colorful leaves on the ground.  or just lush and green still on the edge of turning.  Do you attempt to try every single day to still wear out your summer dresses, or jean shorts, or are you loving the no need to shave today, leggings?

Each and everyone of us has a difference of opinion for fall days.  We all have a difference of preference also.  I prefer the early fall days of chill in the morning with my coffee, fallowed by a warm day, and a glass of wine by the campfire/bonfire in my fuzziest sweater 🙂 at night.

We almost found what I would consider “The perfect location spot” the only thing is the house had a huge water issue this past spring and needs to honestly be torn down(best option).  The lot was just over 2 acres however backed onto over 70 acres of municipally owned land(untouched).  I would have jumped on it and ripped down the house, and happily have brought back some of my previous ideas for a cabin/home and put that on the property without a doubt.  Fortunately for my family lol my husband, and mother disagreed with my adventurous ideas.

I hope all of you have a wonderful day!  Enjoy the fresh air, and your loved ones 🙂

Summer School Practice plans

For the summer we have decided to keep the kids practicing their reading and math, so have reactivated our membership with Adapted Mind.  The kids used it last year right before the beginning of school, which seemed to help start them off.  The site has the ability to have different profiles for different children.  It’s really great, and the kids ask to play all the time.

Adapted Mind

Hello :)

So sorry everyone.  It’s been a while since my last post, but I wanted you all to know we have been crazy busy, with surgery’s, animals, summer plans, and to-do list stuff.  I really want to say Hey, and just get something out there to you guys, to just touch base!

Hope your all well 🙂
