How are all of you doing? I haven't heard from you in awhile, does that mean we are all busy decluttering and keeping our homes or are we busy enjoying the summer? I have been doing both. Lately, I have mainly been trying to get things organized around my home to help them run smoothly and consistently. My main focus as of late, has been stocking my pantry and cutting my grocery bill back. It seems that I have not been doing a good job in that area lately and it was starting to really show; by lack of food and increase in budget. So, that has been my priority lately. Today is my baking day this week; this is when I will stock my pantry with bread, tortillas, and homemade snacks and such. If I try to just make them here and there, they don't get done and we run out which means a trip to the store unexpectedly. Yikes!! What have you been working on lately?
I also want to refer you to a great website, Rebecca Powell. I have attended several of her workshops over the last few years at my local homeschool convention and I must say, she is just a wonderful woman. She is so sweet and lovely to talk with as well. I ordered her latest book while at the last conference and it arrived in the mail yesterday. The title is "Seasons of Change; Parenting Your Middle Schooler with Passion and Purpose". My oldest will be 11 this summer and I wanted to be prepared for what is aheah. I haven't been able to put it down!! I am half way through and probably would have finished it already, had I not had chores to do today. :) So, head over to her website, she has alot of different resources.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to say hi!
