What a busy weekend Mixing a few posts into one! Contest winner, and a new contest!!

I have to say, I have not been so tired as I am right now in a long time. As some of you know, I have recently taken over my step fathers Billiards Club. My working hours have more than doubled, and I am tired. I have to ask, how do people who work full time with young kids do it?? My space is a mess. My laundry pile has gone from my knees to my waist. I've made 1 home cooked meal in the last week. (And boy was it yummy) And most of all, I miss … [Read more...]

A locally made Goats Milk Soap that I have fallen in love with. … [Read more...]

Pretty Flowers, a rainy night and a gift from a stranger

This is a picture of Mum's that I purchased yesterday. I love to take pictures of flowers. They are so perfect! Last night was a very rainy night. It poured for hours. Both the above and below picture were taken with maximum flash and the camera facing upwards. The flash reflected off the rain drops allowing me to photograph them. I love it!! And finally a gift from a stranger. Yesterday a gentleman came into my place of work. He was waiting … [Read more...]

A holding camp for Thousands of Jews durring the Second World War, in occupied France. If this peaks your interest … [Read more...]

Our Adventure

Ben and I decided to go for an Adventure today. We took a walk through the paths in the wooded area by our house. We were looking for Toadstools, Salamanders, Squirrels, Chipmunks, and Bears and Moose according to Ben. We spent about an hour out playing in the woods. It rained a little but we were well covered by trees. I love Trees. I'm teaching Ben to be a tree hugger, but I think I've told you that already. So, we found some interesting … [Read more...]

Rainy Day

Well, Yesterday It rained. And rained, and rained. But for little boog's like mine, those are the best kind of days. Ben had a ball jumping and splashing in the puddles. I think he hit every puddle for 1.5Km. We had to walk from Mommy's work to Daddy's work, and we had a ball. We were even offered a ride, and turned it down, though it was appreciated. Check out some of Ben's Rainy Day Fun. He went through 2 pairs of pants yesterday. But it was … [Read more...]
