Anyone who knows me knows I love to read. This may be a bit of an understatement. That I cannot not read maybe a better way to phrase it. I buy a purse based more on if I can stuff a book or two in rather than if it is fashionable. I keep books stashed … Continue reading Read ALL the Books!
Why are you doing what you are doing? It's a good question for so many areas of our lives, isn't it? Specifically today I want to write about why we homeschool. The reasons for homeschooling are as varied as the families that do it. Some choose to homeschool because they believe the schools around them … Continue reading What Is Your Why?
A few hours after the last post, we received the call we had been waiting for. The answer was simply no. It wouldn't work. Not a chance. Ok. It wasn't the answer I had hoped for, but at least it was an answer. I took a walk, shed a few tears and came back. I touched … Continue reading Working in the Wait
Life in Colorado weather-wise seems to reflect my own life. We're waking up mornings to snow on the blossoms, days of gray, moments of brilliant blue and color everywhere and then back to snow. I'm struggling with sleep, loads of work and feeling frozen, immobile to create beyond the necessary meals and lessons. We are … Continue reading Blossoming, Eventually
It's a rare grey & rainy day here. The sound of the rain falling is a wonder. I took a cup of tea to the porch and sat for a moment just to soak it all in. A moment was all. As it is in the low forties outside I did not stay long. I … Continue reading Rain~
How do you balance it all? It's funny, but I always thought of balance as a static thing. Once I achieved balance I'd just have to keep doing things exactly the same each day and it would all stay balanced, right? For example, there was that happy time of life when my one baby slept … Continue reading Why We Need Dynamic Balance
Mind, I'm not suggesting you must finish three books today. Though I personally would find that to be simply a wonderful day! I often get asked how it is that I read so much. It's funny to me because I never considered that I really read more than most. I tracked all my books last year … Continue reading Why You Should Be Reading at Least Three Books Today
My mind is a whirl with thoughts and ideas, dreams and plans. Reading from such a variety of new places and books has my brain running far ahead of the rest of me. I've not been able to keep pace this last week though for taking care of sick ones including myself. Along with the … Continue reading
The new year has arrived! Isn't a fresh start lovely? Even the ground has a fresh white coat of snow looking all clean and bright today. With what shall this new year be filled? I wonder. That wonder is part of the joy. I know there will be good and moments of utter delight. As it … Continue reading (Embracing) New
I've been awake a bit. You know, mind wide awake and about a hundred miles ahead of body still inert. In fact the only reason I'm upright now is because I bribed myself with tea. It was the last thing I did before heading to bed: brewed a pot of tea and tucked it into … Continue reading Working It Out
