I had a great weekend with my family. I can’t believe how much I’ve missed while I was working more than full time. I’ve almost got the house back to my standard of clean(wow it’s been a job and a half!) I’ve got a couple of posts coming up on homemaking, natural cleaning hacks, slaying the laundry dragon and more. All of these are fresh on my mind because I’ve been whipping myself and my house back into shape.
My pantry is showing my neglect from this fall. Hubby helped me this weekend and we got some much needed diced tomatoes canned. I’ve really hated using store bought tomatoes the last week. Besides aren’t these soooo much prettier?! I know I’m nuts, it’s okay I’ve come to terms with it. I’ve got some elk bones to make bone broth with and a bunch of dry beans to can. I love having beans canned for those days when I forget about dinner and I can whip something nutritious quickly and easily.
We’ve been working on school work, getting back on the right track. I have to say we’ve had quite the year so far. Between me working and taking on a double year in English and Math(to make up for some holes in previous curriculum); it’s been challenging to say the least. I’ve got to take a minute and brag on my son who is just a couple of days away from completing one whole year in both Math and English. He has really stepped up and put in the work this year and it shows. I couldn’t be more proud of him!! Mini Me has also grown by leaps and bounds. This year has by far been the most turbulent and beautiful year of homeschooling. My grandiose plans were shot all to heck right out of the gate, but God’s grace has given us the most productive year yet!!
That’s an update on how my little corner of the world has been spinning… now time for the apology. I’ve dropped the ball on here and I apologize. I’ve missed two out of three Flash Fiction Fridays. To say these assignments are tougher than I thought they would be is an understatement. But I’ve never been one to back down from a challenge, so this coming Friday I will have a new story for you guys, I promise. Thanks for hanging in here with me! I really do appreciate each one of you who take the time to read my craziness. I’m working on getting the email function to work, but you can always leave me a comment here and I’ll get back to you!
