A blessed Sabbath to you. Ah, I just love this time. The house is (mostly) clean, and I'm cuddling with my one-year-old. At the moment, I feel at peace. But I don't always feel this way. The world is bleak today, ladies. In my home, there are meltdowns and tantrums sometimes. Things definitely don't always … Continue reading Sabbath Thoughts || Finding Peace
I've checked my phone about one million times this past week. We closed on our cabin on Friday afternoon. There was one form left to be signed by the buyer (who wasn't there, since the sale was a 1031 exchange), so our funds would likely be delivered the next week. On Monday morning I started … Continue reading We Paid Off the House!
The year has just flown by to me. How is it even possible that it is already October? Our days are full to the brim, and I'm so grateful to be my children's teacher. Homeschooling takes up a good bit of our mornings, and sometimes extends into the afternoon, too. I like to get started … Continue reading Homeschool Days || October 2021
Today, I'm wearing a cotton polka dotted dress which is so very comfortable. In fact, my closet is filled with skirts and dresses. I've been wearing them for ten years. It feels very normal in our home for me to dress this way. I love it. While I do have some Biblical reasons for doing … Continue reading Feminine Modesty Combats the Degradation of Our Culture
We closed on our cabin on Friday. It was pretty much the most seamless real estate transaction of all time. Ah, I am so excited to become 100% debt free again, possibly today! We also will be able to work on some much needed projects around here. This home has been lovely, but at the … Continue reading Home Improvements on the Horizon
My little girls have been waiting for this day for a long time! While I've been burned out from leaving our home so much this week, seeing their faces light up at the pumpkin patch and Babyland General Hospital was worth it! I thought I'd write a Modest Monday post since I haven't in awhile. … Continue reading Modest Monday || Outing with My Girls
Once upon a time, I craved leaving my home. Every day, I wanted to leave. This is something I'm not proud of. I didn't understand God's plan for me to be a keeper at home. I couldn't keep my home well if I was never there! Lately, I've realized that if I have too many … Continue reading Slow Living in Today’s World
Ah, how I love October! The temperature is finally cooling off, and the outdoor world is simply glorious! I'm looking forward to mountain drives to take in lots of beautiful fall leaves soon! On this October morning, I woke up to my husband slipping out of our room to begin his workday at our dining … Continue reading A Homemaker’s Morning || October 6, 2021
His alarm sounded at 5:30 am this morning. My husband had to arrive at the parking lot near his office by 6:30. A table should be waiting for him outside, containing a test and face shield. No one else will be there. That's the point. Unvaccinated, he has been deemed too much of a health … Continue reading How Can I Support My Husband Through This?
Good morning ladies, and a happy Sabbath to you! It looks like today will be absolutely lovely in our neck of the woods. How good the Father has been to us! I felt led to share a bit of an update with y'all regarding our cabin. It has been an interesting journey in which God … Continue reading We are Selling Our Cabin
September has been quite the month. I'm so sorry that I haven't dropped in here at all. To be honest, I have been in a bit of a funk, and I don't want to spread negativity based on my own feelings. Through it all, the Lord has been so good to us, and in a … Continue reading Life Update September 2021
I've been quiet here, yet again. Things have been strange lately. I honestly feel like I've been transported to a strange opposite world, where my understanding of life totally conflicts with others. At least, that's what the media tells me. My husband is facing a vaccine mandate at his job. Is he in healthcare, you … Continue reading Facing a Vaccine Mandate
How has your day been so far, ladies? Mine has been good...any day spent with my children is a good one! After waking up, my fifteen-year-old daughter and I completed a 31 minute walk/run using our Couch to 5k app. Up and down the driveway we went. We then got started on schoolwork, and my … Continue reading Let Me Be a Woman Study Chapters 33 and 34
A rainbow after a tropical storm sat over our home all day. God is faithful. Good morning, ladies! I realize I've been MIA lately. I've had full intentions to blog the last few days, but life has simply gotten in the way. Besides tending to my Etsy shop, we have resumed our homeschool lessons and … Continue reading Where Have I Been?
It has been a lovely morning. I spent some time in my garden, harvesting cucumbers and tomatoes. Afterwards, I worked on a fun custom order from my Etsy shop and prepped a homegrown zucchini casserole. Oh, how I love summer. Summer is quickly becoming one of my favorite seasons since I've started to garden. It … Continue reading Let Me Be a Woman Study Chapters 31 and 32
Happy Tuesday! I hope you are having a good week so far. I must admit that I am tired. Last night was long, and after returning home from a long-distance orthodontist appointment, I just want to rest. But first, I'd like to write for a few minutes about worry. Something we ladies definitely struggle with … Continue reading A Worried Mama
Good morning, ladies! I hope you have a good day to look forward to. After all, the Lord (YHWH) is who has given it to us! I plan to find a new recipe shortly to use up some of the zucchini which is finally coming in in the garden. I hope it will go well … Continue reading Let Me Be a Woman Study Chapters 29 and 30 + New Personalized Tea Towels
July is slipping away, and it's almost August. How can that be? I can hardly believe it. Our homeschool will be starting soon, and I'm very excited for the new year to begin. While homeschooling isn't absent of challenges, I love being my children's teacher. I started my morning in the garden. I have a … Continue reading A Homemaker’s Morning || July 28, 2021
Tomatoes and cucumbers are coming in, and we recently harvested our red potatoes. It is July on our small, newbie, homestead! I normally share a few thoughts from Let Me Be a Woman by Elisabeth Elliot on Fridays, but today I honestly haven't had a chance to read the chapters and compose a post. This … Continue reading Homestead Update || July 2021
Good afternoon, ladies! I haven't blogged much this week, due to being exceptionally busy with Etsy shop orders. I am very grateful for this, however. God knows all of our needs, and He has been so kind to make sure they are being met. Anyhow, I'm here now, and I'd love to spend a few … Continue reading Let Me Be a Woman Study Chapters 27 and 28
