Around Our Home

:: Around Our Home :: 

In an effort this week to remain "screen-free" this week, I've not been blogging which is a hard thing because I love sharing our adventures. I am trying to be less screen oriented and more world oriented. It is a challenge but I don't want to let life pass me by while I am absorbed on the computer. 

So let's catch up. 
Making Mariana Sauce for the freezer. Goodness knows I hate having to make sauce on the same night I am trying to cook some new pasta dish. 

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread 

We made homemade bread, felt flower brooches, and cards for Miss E's Sunday School teachers since this was the last week. 

the dreaded Puffy Paint Project. She loves it so whatever....I just go with it! 

A homemade Mother's Day gift for my mom. 

the fabric is cut and ready for sewing....

This is what we are reading this week. I am reading Little House in the Big Woods to the girls each night. I am reading The Midnight Rose by Lucinda Riley and James is reading Duty by Robert M. Gates. 

Menu planning & tea drinking

Watercolors Night. I have decided that once a week we will do watercolors and music listening. This week we listened to Lorenna McKennitt radio on Pandora. 


  1. Looks like a lovely week. I tried reading Little House to Reece last year, he wasn't interested, I should try again. Maybe it will be our summer read. Have a lovely weekend. Happy Mother's Day!

  2. I was wondering where you were ;) I have been cutting back as well, it's good for your brain. Love the tea and menu planning photo, that is what I'll be doing tonight :)
