Is this thing on?

A Winter Daybook
Pssst.  Remember me?! I really didn’t intend to take such a hiatus but when this site was hacked into I was forced to shut it down for a while.  One thing led to another and the next thing I knew, nearly 2 years have passed!  Rather than hash out the last 2 years I think we’ll just jump right in at where we are today.  

I am thinking about…

my day and all of the potential it holds.

I am thankful for…

the “job” I do and how crazy, amazing the perks are, including an all-expenses-paid trip across the country I just earned!!

I am wearing…

work out clothes, it’s 7:00am and I just got home from working out…before 7:00am…let that sink in.  Who is this person?  You hardly recognize me, right?

I am creating…

more homemade deodorant for our family.  We LOVE this stuff! No chemicals in these pits! This is the first time I actually mixed it with beaters and it is delightfully whipped and smooth! Super excited about that!

Curious minds will want to know:  It’s equal parts coconut oil, baking soda and arrowroot powder plus essential oils. Whip it up and paste it on those pits.  So simple and YES it does work!  Feel free to sniff me.

I am going…

crazy with anticipation of an entire week with my dear husband at home with us!!

I am wondering…

how long it will be before this Christmas tree is totally naked.  So many needles….

I am learning…

about vacuum cleaners.  Oh joy.

In my kitchen…

there is a bowl of cut pomegranate being nibbled on and freshly made deodorant as of right now.

In the homeschool room…

all is quiet.  Only a little bit of math and plenty of reading still going on since it is Christmas break.

A favorite quote for today…

life

A peek into one of my days…

5:30am alarm goes off and I roll out of bed to get dressed.

6:00-6:45am fitness class

7:00-9:00am pray, coffee, breakfast with the family, and lots of laughs

These are about the only things that I know will happen most days right now.  The rest of the day/night depends on the day and what we need to to accomplish.  On our agenda today?  Rest and fun!

One of my favorite things…

cozy, soft blankets.

Well, there you have it.  A sneak peek into this Heavenly Homestead.  Stay tuned for more to come!
