Instructions
  1. Mix dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add wet ingredients and stir softly until combined. Cook on waffle iron. (My waffle iron has a timer, so I just set it to setting 4 and wait for the light to turn green, so I don’t have any directions to give other than cook until cooked.

Sauteed Shrimp with Onions and Cherry Tomatoes

Posted by Admin on January 25, 2017 in Recipes |

I found this recipe on the Nomnompaleo.com site.  It is one of my favorite places to find yummy recipes that fit in my gluten free, mostly paleo diet.  She is an excellent cook and I have never been disappointed in a recipe I’ve tried.  Of course, I try things I think I would like anyway, but the recipes always go above and beyond and deliver on flavor.  The problem I run into from time to time is that I don’t have some of the spices she uses.  So I have adjusted this recipe with spices that most of us have on hand.  Here is the link to the original if you prefer.  Original Sauteed Shrimp with Onions and Cherry Tomatoes.

Homeschool Movie Club

Posted by Admin on January 18, 2017 in Homeschool, Personal Thoughts |

We were introduced to “The Homeschool Movie Club” a few weeks ago and signed up for an opportunity to preview “A Dog’s Purpose” which comes out on the 27th of January.  We went to see it last night.  It’s a good entertaining family movie.  There were several funny comments and scenes and some sad upsetting ones as well. Your emotions run the full gamut.  In my opinion, the previews gave away a bit too much and there were no real surprises.  But overall, “enjoyable”.

Here’s what sort of got my goat.  I struck up a conversation with a fellow homeschooler sitting next to me.  We were sitting in the midst of a “regular” theater. I was talking about how spoiled we’d become with the new theaters that are emerging, the ones that have reclining chairs and cup holders that fit your cups.  I actually had the thought that I’m not very comfortable (when in truth I was perfectly comfortable).  His comment in return was that he just wanted popcorn at a reasonable price.  And in truth, popcorn at movie theaters is, for sure and for certain, over priced. But when you are at a movie with a family of 4 and they have given you this outing for “nothing”. It’s not asking too much to buy a tub of popcorn that will feed your entire family, and a drink that you can share for “$17”. I understand if you can’t afford it.  I admit there have been times when I’d bring water from home and baggies of popcorn in my purse.  But I wouldn’t grumble over price when I’m getting everything else for free. Just my opinion!  I’m working this year on being more grateful for the things we have and are given.  Now if I can just get a handle on gumping over other people’s opinions.  🙂

French Revolution Lap Book

Posted by Admin on January 9, 2017 in Uncategorized |

In an effort to make history more fun and interesting for my 10th grader we purchased the French Revolution Lap Book curriculum from Hands of a Child. We used this to help her organize the information in her head and get a better grasp on the lessons. The lapbook breaks the information down into easy to use lessons and as she works on each task she gets a better idea of what it is all about. The activities help to cement the knowledge in her head.

The lessons do require printing, cutting, pasting etc. which can add to the time to complete each lesson, but the benefits are far worth it. If you have a child that does not enjoy this type of activity, you can do the printing and cutting ahead of time for them. Those who struggle with fine motor and writing can use the version that allows you to type the information onto the page before printing.

New Year Resolutions!

Posted by Admin on January 3, 2017 in Personal Thoughts |

I read somewhere that only 8% of those who make New Years Resolutions are successful at achieving them.  So why make a resolution?  Every year I make resolutions.  Do I keep them all?  Nope!  Do I keep some of them? Absolutely! Continuing to work towards good health, good relationships, making our world and making our family life better are good things.   If I’m not successful at reaching my goals, at least I tried and made I improvements for awhile.  Starting a New Year is a reminder for me to get back up, dust my pants off, “forgive myself”, try to find something else that might work to reach my goal and try again.  I believe I (and my family) lose out when I quit trying.  Here are my goals this year.

  1. Walking 7000 steps 5 times a week
  2. Drinking 64 ounces of water a day
  3. Throwing away 10 things every day until all of my clutter is gone (more is better, but at least 10)
  4. Declutter, organize and deep clean our home.  (Using Spring Cleaning 365)
  5. Menu Planning each and every week (healthier meals, less stress, less money, win-win-win!)
  6. Going on a date 2 X per month with just my husband.
  7. Participate in 1 quality time activity with each member of my family every week.
  8. Making monthly, weekly and daily lists to keep me focussed on my goals.
  9. Read and write daily
  10. Get to bed on time and get up on time at least 5 X weekly.

What are your goals for this new year, or week or day?
