I love, love, love

It seems like this week has flown by. I’ve been fighting a cold (I know, I’m sick again... Grr). My companions have been earl grey tea, honey and lemon water (delicious), a warm quilt and going to bed early.  I felt worse when taking Claritin-D (stuffy and flakey— I don’t need any help in the flakey/distracted department) so I’ve opted for my body to just fight it out. Go cells! 

In the midst of my week, it snowed! The kids and the dog went out last night to ‘help’ Daddy shovel, they came back in red faced and giggly.

Isabel made snow pies, and proceeded to eat it. When asked how it tasted she said, “Cold!” Awesome. Truman wanted to take his still-dry pants off, right away when he came in. I’m still not sure why.

We ate dinner, did our candle lighting and advent reading and that was about it for happy memories from the evening. We spent most of it disciplining and talking about attitude changes. I’m hoping for a better night tonight. 


There are a few things that I can't help but show you.
Number one, my friend Katie made this pumpkin crisp for our bible study the other night. I ate one piece and took another one home it was so good. I even refused to share with Truman (I know I'm a bad mom sometimes).

AND blogging friend Heather from Shivaya Naturals is now an founding editor of an online magazine, Rhythm of the Home. They have some great natural parenting articles and activities. A must read!

Then there is habit, I've had a love affair with this site since the day Molly introduced it. So many unbeleveable women in the same place. This month is their year anniversary. Potentially 35 women giving you a glimpse of their day. Beautiful.

Grace opened her new shop yesterday afternoon. Handmade waldorf dolls. They are just lovely.

I just finished a the book Farm City by Novella Carpenter, it was a fast read, but was super informative. And it proves the point that anyone can make a more sustainable life, just in your own backyard (or vacant lot). She has a blog too!

I think that's enough for now. Have a wonderful December weekend! I know I will.

Oh I love that Habit site, and I will have to explore that a bit more, and that pumpkin crisp sounds amazing. Thank you for mentioning the magazine, I truly hope that you enjoy it
