Books Read This Week {03.04.15)

Well, I only finished one book this past week and it was one I actually wasn’t planning on reading. I think you are going to start seeing one of my weaknesses…I start reading lots of books and then have a hard time finishing them! As you can see below, I have quite a few books […]

Old Books + Family History

Old Books + Family History

Ok, I’ll admit it…I LOVE books! My husband always kids me saying that all our wall space is taken with bookshelves (and he actually isn’t kidding)! When we moved into our current house almost 8 years ago, I was so pleased to see one wall in the dining room had a huge built-in bookshelf. Yeah! […]

Books Read This Week - 2-25

Books, books, books. I guess you could say I’m kind of a book-loving gal! Not only do I really enjoy reading, but I have learned so much through the years through reading great books.

Want to know how to eat better and spend less?

Eat Better Spend Less with Beth Cranford!

I finally was able to get some more decluttering projects done this week, so I thought I’d share.

Since I […]

This week I am going to filter back in some more non-fiction books. I am really enjoying the reading times I have had and this past week had some extra time due to the plain fact that I was needing more rest!  The rest felt so good and, of course, I enjoyed some great books. […]

A manners book + free math and language arts worksheets + free software to convert Youtube videos to mp3!


Today was supposed to be my Decluttering Challenge Update post, but I forgot to take before and after pictures of what I accomplished last week. With my oldest son’s help, we cleaned off the tops of the refrigerator and upright freezer. My son actually did all the cleaning, as I hurt my shoulder and was […]

Ever wish life would get back to “normal”?

Ever wish life would get back to "normal"?

Have you ever caught yourself saying something like this, “Boy, I sure will be glad when things get back to normal!” I know I have said it many times in my life. But what is “normal”, really? Our lives are always changing and while we can set routines in place to provide some consistency in […]
