MAJOR SENSORY PLAY DAY AT SCHOOL

This week in school we made oobleck and cloud dough, both recipes are floating around pinterest. My son wasn’t feeling well Wednesday afternoon so I decided to make Thursday our sensory play day. That is one of my goals for this school year is to implement a lot more fun into the mix. Last year was our first year of homeschool, so now we got the hang of things and the “creases are ironed out.” I also have a preschooler…

IT’S A BEAUTIFUL MORNIN…

One thing I learned about myself, while working early in the morning for 4 weeks, is that I prefer a beautiful sunrise than a sunset. This was about 6:30, the first morning that I didn’t have to come in til later, usually I was enjoying the sunrise while I was watering and graining the calves. I have a whole bunch of sunrise pictures on my phone but, THIS was one of the best because you could see the raise coming…

AN ORGANIZED SPICE CABINET

In one of my last posts I mentioned going through my house and organizing some of the most used places. One of those is my spice-condiment-cookbook cabinet.  This cabinet is used frequently through out the day; especially for breakfast and dinner.  I try to cook dinner at least five to six nights a week, so that cabinet gets its use.  When I would open that cabinet, I would shut it just as fast a I got something out or put…
