  Easy garden composting is by far is the easiest method of composting that I’ve tried. You already know that I’ve composted using my DIY compost bin but during seasons when I’m feeling lazy, I do something a little bit different. Instead of layering my kitchen scraps in my compost bin, I take them right out to the garden and layer them. This is what I call garden composting. Garden Composting 1. Dig a hole in your flower bed around 7 – 12 inches deep. 2. Pour in your compost material. (See list of acceptable compost material) 3. Add a

It’s Monday and a new month which means I have several things going on today. Today I get to create some new goals for the month of July. I also get to plan a weeks worth of healthy and delicious meals for my family and choose a new book or two to read for July. In January I challenged myself to read at least one book per month in 2012. So far, I’ve been reading between one and three books each month. In June I read these two and I will share a review of them along with my July

It’s Monday which means that I’m sitting somewhere cozy with a hot cup of coffee and planning out my week. Before I share my weeks goals I want to share a recap of this weekend. I spent the weekend working on several projects that I’ll share soon. The den and master bedroom remodel is coming together so nicely and I can’t wait until everything is complete. To complete the projects I started this weekend, I had to pick up a few things from the Home Depot and the Dollar Tree. While at the Dollar Tree I spotted the new line

It’s Monday which means that I’m sitting somewhere cozy with a hot cup of coffee and planning out my week. I’ve already begun working on one homemaking project which was to clean my deep freezer from top to bottom. It turned out to be more work than expected because I went in without a plan. I made some serious preparation mistakes that cost me unnecessary cleaning time so I’ll be sharing to process with you and what I learned so that you don’t make the same mistakes that I did. I have lot’s of homemaking projects planned and some changes

I have this sticky note below pinned to my laptop dashboard as a little reminder of the things I should get done before getting on the computer. While blogging is important to me there are some responsibilites that I must attend to that are important to the people who depend on me. While this sticky note by it’s self does not always succeed in compelling me to address the areas listed on it before I start blogging, it does initiate a thought process that helps me move closer to becoming more disciplined in how I manage my time. With time

Working from home on Monday’s is tough for me because after everyone has left for school and work I still have to look at the fallout from the weekend. Right now, there is clean laundry on the couch, dishes in the dishwasher, tons of laundry to be done, weekly menus to be planned all on top of working on my blog. I like to sit on the couch and work instead of in my office, but not on Monday’s. If I work from the couch the clothes will keep taunting me to fold and put them away. The pile of

I hope everyone is having a great start to the week. I am super excited about what I have planned. Some of my plans include a freezer cooking session to prepare three meals that will be great time savers in February. Later today I’ll be sharing pictures of how I organize my stockpile. I’ll take you on a picture tour from start to finish of how I sort and keep everything tidy. Tomorrow I’ll share the first in a 12 month Fashion Flashback series. Each month I’ll share a few shots of what I wore throughout the month. It’s part

When the kids are sick… it seems as if I don’t get much done but that’s alright. In my 18 years as a mom I’ve learned to drop all of my goals and expectations when my kids are sick. My youngest took sick with a fever and wheezing last Wednesday at school and I’ve had to take him to the pediatrician twice already. Then my 6th grader was experiencing some pain so I had to take him to the pediatrician. Now are three of my children are sick with cold and flu symptoms. So we will most likely extend their

We are nine days into the year… and I can say that many of the changes I’ve implemented into my life and this blog are looking good. The prayer forum has been an amazing blessing to me and hopefully to you as well. It’s really helping me to be more intentional about praying for the concerns of others and to be less ‘ME’ focused. I’ve also been getting tons of enjoyment from the Do-It-Yourself and How-To projects. It’s been a huge motivation for me the get little projects done around here. Here are some of my goals for this week.

For the last few weeks I’ve been working on improving the functionality of my kitchen. Since I’m a stay at home wife and mom this is where I spend most of my day and where I work. Having an organized work and living space makes our daily activities run much more smoother.  I keep my kitchen clean and tidy using this method and what I like most about it is that it only takes 10 minutes at a time to do. However, keeping things clean and tidy is only half of the equation. The other half is keeping things in

Yesterday I spent an amazing day with my family laughing, eating and opening gifts. I’ll have my kids with me for the next week and we are getting geared up for some FUN family time this week. Of course they’ll be busy with their Christmas toys, but in between playing and chores we will probably hit the movie theater. We’ll also sit down and plan some fun activities for New Years Eve. We usually have special dinner, lots of dessert and play family games. Here are some more of my other plans for this week. FAITH Bible Reading: Psalms Prayer:

This is the last week before the kids get out of school for the holidays and I’m really excited about our families plans. Our family tradition is for the kids to spend a week with their grandparents before Christmas. Each year they go participate in Christmas recitals and parties at their grandparents church. It’s a great time for them to love on their grandparents and vice-versa. This arrangement works out really nicely and gives Mr. P and I some alone time to connect without any interruptions. Finally, I’ll need to step it up on my crochet projects. I’ve been slacking

So I sat down this morning with my bible, my devotions, my recipe binder and homemaking binder. I wanted to jot down some plans for the week before the week got too busy. I can already feel the Christmas chaos trying to suck me in but I am praying for Gods direction in how to use my time in a way that pleases him. We spent yesterday morning at church and yesterday afternoon celebrating my sons 8th birthday. One of the things he wanted to do was decorate the Christmas tree, so that’s what we did. Here are some of

I have a few things planned this week but first let me say that I’ve made it through three weeks of the P90X Extreme Home Fitness Workout Program. Just when I thought I was getting my mojo, the workouts change. This week is the recovery phase but this will by no means be a typical recovery. The workout has plenty of yoga, core work and kick boxing on

What you can expect on the blog today: The 3.23.11 Publix deals later this afternoon, some sweepstake announcements, a new survey company introduction, fun for kids on a budget and some money saving deals here and there.
