Sunny Simple Life My bantam hens are seven months old now. They are certainly old enough to lay now but with winter time's shortened hours of daylight, they have yet to give me that precious first egg. But as of a couple of days ago the signs are beginning to appear. Sunny Simple Life

Remember a few weeks back when I posted about the Braised Beef & Tortellini (Olive Garden's Copycat recipe) I found. If you don't remember, check it out HERE. Well ever since I have been on the hunt for recipes of stuff we LOVE that I can make homemade. Well spaghetti sauce is something I use all the time. I have several recipes that call for it, as well as I use it as pizza sauce in a bind. Sustainably Chic Designs Sustainably Chic Designs

For Missouri, we may get record breaking snow fall for January and tomorrow is supposed to bring some of the coldest weather in decades, with wind chills -25 below, or worse.

A few years back I received an email from an individual who had some very hurtful and harsh things to say about everything I was doing. She did not hold back pointing out the countless errors I had made in my first ebook Blueprint : JOYS and in my website postings among other things. Going on to say that I should seek other work or hire an editor and web master full time. It hurt. But, I read it and responded as gracefully and as grammatically correct as I could. Then I tossed the email in the trash. New Twist on Your Home Filing System Organized Living for Peace of Mind New Twist on Your Home Filing System Organized Living for Peace of Mind
Penelope Loves Lists | how to organize | organization tips | closet organizer | pretty office supplies | office products | Inspiration for the Unapologetically Organized Soul Here’s a question from a reader named Amy:I’m struggling with my Penelope tendencies and my ability to effectively mother. I tend to want to pick up the Legos immediately upon them being emptied from the box. I’m not exactly carefree and laid-back, and I’m afraid that my (ahem) more controlling nature might be negatively impacting my son. Thoughts? First of all, Amy, let me say “I HEAR YOU.” This is a huge issue.

The Story of Us 10 years ago this morning, I had breakfast with my dad, at our family farm on the second concession South of Gorrie. He was so nervous, he couldn't even open the jar of cinnamon, the signature ingredient of my favourite, french toast. Later he gave me a collector's plate and on it was a picture of a little girl playing dress up. On the back he had inscribed "this is how I see you today". As I was getting my hair done, my childhood hairdresser recounted a conversation she had with a client earlier in the week who was going to an anniversary party that weekend. The couple were celebrating 5 years of marriage and my hairdresser mused "I didn't know people had parties at the 5 year mark but I suppose any milestone these days is worth celebrating".

Hello friends! As I sit here typing this post we are expecting another snow storm. This time we are supposed to get 6-10 inches of snow and some freezing rain/ice. My kids have had so many snow days and it looks like tomorrow will be another one. I am so over snow and cold weather. Thrifty Decor Mom Thrifty Decor Mom

Before and After: Disney was AWESOME! We had the best time. I know I haven’t posted in a while and it’s because I was trying to finish everything in time. Now that we’re back I can share the rest of what I created. A Sprinkle of This . . . .
Fruity Lemonade I just love this display of colorful bowls. I found this picture about two years ago on Pinterest and I fell in love with the idea of having a bowl collection. I even started collecting colorful bowls. I only have a few and they are in the basement because I don't know where to put them in my kitchen. I have been trying to brainstorm for days where to put some kind of display shelf in my kitchen. I have a couple of ideas, however I don't think my husband will go for them.
Frugalicous Domesticity - Menu Planning and The Office I went to bed last night very worried that I may have come across as some one with OCD, ADD and a slew of other undiagnosed illnesses with acronyms. I'm just me. What's a girl to do. Today I did my usual morning routine. Today's room to 'clean' was the office.
So, I decided to take a little different turn with my goals for the year. I'm going to follow my theme word . . . Instead of creating this laundry list of things under individual topics, I did a brainstorming session and made a list of things I want to work on, accomplish or complete this year.
