5 Fabulous Ways to Relax and Unwind With your Girlfriends

relax-unwind-girlfriends

I had a sweet ladies get together this weekend at my house. Once a month my lady friends and I make it a point to get together and do something special. It's not always at my home but it is always just the ladies.  Occasionally a rogue child is in attendance and that just can't be helped. It's a nice time to connect, pray together, share, and fellowship. I think it's important to have women you can connect with who have similar interests. But it doesn't have to be all hashing out your problems. It can be a time of pure fun too! Here are 5 Fabulous Ways to Relax and Unwind With … [Read more...]

These are the Days of Elijah

Well I meant to post this yesterday but as I do no web work on Sunday it gets posted today. My husband (now retired) wasn't in the Marines but I feel a kinship with all the military branches nonetheless. We play this song in church. My nephew is rather talented on the piano. It's a very timely song. And it's a blessing to see our men in arms sing His Praises. ~ Enjoy! … [Read more...]

monday-menu-plan-929

  Happy Monday Menu Planning! How were your dinners last week? Mine were okay. The interesting part is that I only had $18 to spend on groceries for the week! My husband and I, in an effort to look at all our spending, have decided on a monthly grocery budget to try out. This includes household items such as napkins, TP, laundry soap, fabric softener, and any cleaners. No normally I would just go spend on those items but we're trying to narrow down exactly what we need to spend on those items. So to end out the month of September and the rest of the grocery money I had $18 … [Read more...]

Hey everyone it's Eat at Home With Your Family Day! How often do you eat dinner at home with your family? Did you know that it's one of the best times of the day to connect with your spouse and children? Find out what's going on in their day? We make it a point to sit down to dinner together EVERY night during the week. I know gasp! But I grew up this way and it's what I've always known. My husband relishes in it.

weeks-end-journal-926

Happy week's end! I'm wearing a sweater which means that Fall is definitely here. That's okay because I needed some motivation to do some Fall Cleaning. It's cooler this week at RavenHill so we haven't been going out as much with all the rain (pout). This is what we've been up to... The Garden Not much happening here because of the rain. Hubby got part of our fence sealed before the rain started. Oh well. We'll get to the rest next time. Of course we don't really have a garden here yet anyway. Just a small patch of grass that we're ruminating what to do with. Some things we … [Read more...]
