The Highway Prayer (1)

Photo credit (Kim Siever) The ambulance blew by, sirens blaring, lights flashing. My mom was silent for a moment, and then the conversation continued. We kids all knew Mom said a little prayer whenever an ambulance drove by—she saw a need and wisely handed it heavenward. For years I did the same thing, only I took it one step further. When I saw an ambulance,…

This is a non-biased review of The Dragon and the Raven, a dramatic audio production of G.A. Henty’s book of the same title, created by Heirloom Audio Productions. All opinions are my own and those of my children. There was no exchange of cookies, pie, or money to alter our opinions. Ever since we listened to a Librivox recording of G.A. Henty’s The Cat of Bubastes over…

Mostly Measurable, Manageable March Goals--Do you set goals? They help you stay focused and get things accomplished. Try it!

How did you do on your February goals? Personally, I mastered omelettes, celebrated National Pizza Day, and made peach pie, so I consider last month a success! Time for March. Remember the ridiculously obvious rules for our mostly measurable, manageable monthly goals: They should be mostly measurable. It’s manageable. It’s a monthly goal. You have to write your own goals, but here are my mostly measurable…

Still, all opinions are my own…and my son’s. Do you have or know a child? Yes. Continue. No. Go make pie. Does said child…

I love pie. In fact, I have deemed 2016 the year of the pie, and we are choosing a pie each month to bake; there’s a homemade peach pie waiting for us for breakfast. I should say that it’s waiting for my family, not for me. I’m not eating pie. And this is why: I’m on the Total Elimination Diet, which heretofore shall be affectionately…

Just so you know: I was given a free download of HISTORY Through the Ages Hands-on History Lap-Pak: U.S. Elections by the amazing Home School in the Woods to review. All opinions are my own–okay, that’s a lie. Some of the opinions are actually my kids’, but rest assured that they’re not easily influenced…except by chocolate.  Anyone who knows my roadschooling/life approach knows I am totally into simple. Simple to…

Join The Simple Homemaker in setting mostly measurable, manageable goals for February.

How did you do on your January goals? If you did great, great! If you overdid your goals, cut back for February. Remember, make it manageable. Remember the ridiculously obvious rules for our mostly measurable, manageable monthly goals: They should be mostly measurable. It’s manageable. It’s a monthly goal. My list is shorter this month than last, because–confession time–I overdid it last month. And because my…
