Remember my sponsored post by Pennington Smart Feed Products? Well, I’m back with the second sponsored post in this series to tell you that my garden is growing, my yard is still looking smart (besides the weeds that apparently come back at the speed of light), and my roses are BLOOMING like crazy. I also […]

I’ve been meaning to get to my weedy, overgrown, bushy, berry-vine infested flower beds… and to get to those back yard above-ground garden boxes filled with CILANTRO and weeds… and was thrilled when Pennington asked me to do a sponsored post for them to get the word out about their spray-on fertilizer products. I figured, […]

Random Things You Might Want to Know

Cats like empty book cases. No, seriously. They do. In case you were wondering what your floor might look like without carpet… now you know. That’s the cheap padding. My toenails are pink.

In my homeschool family, we have a 15 year old, a 13 year old, a three year old, and a one year old. Babies and toddlers are so fun to decorate for. My tween girl (she was 11 when we began this project) wanted to share a room with my first little guy after he […]

I had high hopes for today. I stayed up burning the midnight oil (isn’t that what Proverbs 31 women are supposed to do?) to prepare for the week. I sorted and opened the mail that piled up last week. I went through the papers, magazines and books that were overflowing on the dining table. I […]
