31 Days of Getting Things Done-Boxer Shorts Curtains

31 Days of Getting Things Done-Boxer Shorts Curtains Well HELLO there! It has been {more than} a few days since my last post. Believe me when I tell ya, I have been a busy camper. This post has sat in the “just about done” queue since last week. It’s all good because my to-do list is getting kicked!  I had 4 projects on the 31 Days of Getting Things Done plan, one of which was to make curtains for the living room. This started out as a super easy project, but like so many super easy projects, it turned into

The bible has a few things to say about diligently preparing for the future as well as NOT being fearful of it. It is full of checks and balances, not contradictions…but THAT is for another post .  We are encouraged to consider the ant; how it works day and night preparing for the time when food will be scarce. It would be

Write 31 Days of Getting Things Done-Minimalism What are we saving “it” for anyway? If you would like to read all the posts in this series, click HERE. Yesterday I left off with the heart issues that contributed to my choice to seek simplicity. There were and are so many little thoughts that creep into my head/heart that are just so darn ugly…to use a descriptive word. Most of my  battles with “stuff” have been rooted in discontent, jealousy, and fear. Discontent is defined as “a restless desire or craving for something one does not have“. WOW!

Write 31 Days of Getting Things Done-Minimalism What are we saving “it” for anyway? ^^click If you would like to read all the posts in this series^^ Sharing why and how we chose to live a simple, minimalist life is turning into a series of posts. There is just so much to say . I hope you’ll follow along and maybe find some inspiration. Whenever I think about how we arrived to our “less is more” outlook, this Michael Card song comes to mind. Of course, the song is about coming to Christ and leaving our spiritual baggage behind. Still, I think leaving

Write 31 Days Or Not…An Update

Write 31 Days Or Not…An Update What are we saving “it” for anyway? ^^click If you would like to read all the posts in this series^^ Despite the challenge being to write for 31 days straight, I kind of knew the odds I could not post every, single day. I know and that is totally fine with me. I feel bad that so many that signed up are beating themselves up for missing a day . Of course, this confirms my issues with completing things, doesn’t it?? Honestly, I am sticking with the spirit of my commitment/participation in that I am actually getting

I sure you will ALL sleep better tonight knowin’ i have a clean kitchen….buwahahahaha ! Where shall I sit to read my book?  To sit, in silence, and simply read…THIS truly is a novel idea <—yes this is a very bad pun.

Scripture For A Sunday Afternoon-Psalm 115:15

Scripture For A Sunday Afternoon-Psalm 115:15 WHAT a gloriously gorgeous day! It was brisk, with a blue sky, bursts of fall everywhere…and to think I was able to hang with my men ALL weekend long. My oldest son {20} lives in NYC and has been home since Friday. He works for Video Games New York primarily working conventions around the country as well as Canada. {Shameless plug: if you have anyone in your life that is a vintage video game player, this is a one stop resource for all your needs} As this is nearly the end of his busy season,
