Of Frozen Pipes and a Snowbound Family: A Living Thankfulness Check-In

I don’t know how many people are planning to participate in my Living Thankfulness Link-Up, but I thought I’d do a check-in to see how things are going.  I’ve been keeping a thankfulness journal this month, but today I am going to share my entry with you all.

We have been snowed in since Friday.  It is day 4 of being stuck and day 2 of no water. Continue reading

I Need a Fix: A True Confession of an Organization Junkie

Borrowed from diyhshp.blogspot.com

I have a not-so-secret love affair with the Simple Mom blog.  I love reading everything on her blog about slowing down and really being in the moment, and, of course, everything to do with organization.  Her site is dedicated to living simply, and I love that.  My family has not actively decided that “simple living” is something we strive for, its just kind of the way we are.  Both my husband and I grew-up rurally so we tend to have a different outlook on life than some of our more sub-urban/urban counterparts.  It also helps that we have to live on a budget so its pretty impossible for us to become overly driven by consumption and the proverbial need to “keep up with the Jones’.”  However, we are not idyllic farm-folk who need nothing more than to look out over our rows of corn to know true happiness.  We need reminding of the important things once in a while, and, for me, I can get that reminder through the wonderful pieces of writing found on Simple Mom.

My True Home

Sunset in Winchester Bay

Sunset in Winchester Bay

I have not posted on here in A LONG time.  I don’t have any specific topic in mind today, but I feel like a quick piece of writing will easily come to me.  It’s pretty peaceful up here in my little wooded hideaway: I can hear the birds chattering away outside and everything seems so calm and relaxed after finally receiving even the tiniest bit of rain.  My how we need rain!  It looks like it might rain some more, the forecast calls for it, but I am not going to hold my breath.  We’ve been teased over the past several days, and I don’t want to be disappointed.  I was thrilled to see everything a little damp this morning as I poured my morning coffee.

Let’s try this again….

So I started this blog about three years ago and did nothing with it.  After spending some time blogging for my coaching business, I have found it quite enjoyable to write for others.  I’m going to be putting my coaching on hold now that I am expecting my second child, but I would like to continue blogging.  Being a stay-at-home mother, I don’t have a platform for discussion very often because I spend most of my time talking with an 18 month old about dogs, trucks, goats, and poop.  There is a lot rattling around in my brain that needs an outlet and lively discussion.  I’ve got some topics saved up and I hope others find them interesting.  Today is not one of those topics as it is late and I will probably not make much sense if I try to delve into something to deep.  For now, I just want to put my intention out there to see where it takes me.

Love and light to you and yours!
