First Menu of January – as sugar and wheat free as possible.

Magazine Recipe Hoarding

I’ve been “RE-ORGANIZING” and purging my filing cabinets in keeping with my prefix for 2016… ‘The Year of RE’. I started by clearing out over half of the saved magazine articles and recipe tear-outs I’ve been keeping since I first got married in 1993.

This Week, the Freight Train…

Ever feel like you were just about to get run over by a fast train, coming down the tracks – right at you? That’s my week this week. Let’s get the bad news out of the way first. I’ve been absorbed by the busy work for the Homeschool Blog Awards and as usual, neglecting my […]

I’m STILL a little overwhelmed with our new school year schedule. The kids are, too. The homework has been hard to keep up with because we have a class on Tuesday (which they cram for on Monday) and a bunch of classes on Thursday (which they cram for on Wednesday), and with our appointments and […]
