Miss Me?

Eh…probably not…right?

5 years is a long time.

But I’m back…hopefully in a more consistent way.  And ForeverWhy is getting a make-over!  New look and hopefully better…and easier to keep moving forward.  Not sure where this journey will take me…us…but I think I’ve finally ready to figure that out.

So…be honest…what do you think of the new look?

It’s still a work in progress.  I have a bunch of pictures to add.  Slow and steady…right?

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Book and Movie review for Harry Potter #4. (You can find review of #1 here and #2 here and #3 here.)  This book is still by far my favorite in the Harry Potter saga.  Fast paced from the Quidditch World Cup in the beginning to the Mad Eye Moody conclusion.  I still find myself not wanting to put it down when I pick it up to reread.  Continue reading

A Child…is not Known

Let me say right from the start that I deeply love and want ALL of my children.  Being their mom is far from easy…and there are more then a few days were I wonder if I’m really up to the task…but at the end of the day I find my strength was sufficient and my heart has grown a little bit more.  A couple weeks ago I went in for our greatly anticipated anatomy ultrasound.  Everyone was so excited…me most of all.  The unknown was going to be made known…and all our convictions confirmed.  Our last little girl was on her way, right?

Green Tomato Harvest

The killer frost I talked about last time ended my tomatoes in their tracks…and really made me sad.  I was looking forward to all those lovely tomatoes being turned into some very pretty jars of tomatoes.  With GadgetJunior’s help, we managed to pull off a HUGE tub of green tomatoes.  Sadly that was less then half of what had been there…but I was beyond done at the time.  That would have to do for a green tomato harvest.  The question then became – what to do with all those green tomatoes? Continue reading

Superhero Trio

I apologize for disappearing for a bit longer then I expected, but hopefully things have calmed down a bit and I can get back to writing here.  I’ll get back to the Harry Potter reviews next week.  This time I feel the need to do quick reviews a few of the Superhero movies that have recently come out. (Like with my other reviews…there might be spoilers if you haven’t seen the movie yet.) Continue reading

A Child…is Joyful

My heart is very full of joy today.  Not only do I have the best husband in the world…a man who is loving, patient and kind, and so very understanding when I need to be left alone because early pregnancy is kicking my rear…I also have the best kidlets in the world!  That makes all the pregnancy woes well worth it…and today’s appointment increased the joy exponentially. Continue reading

D.B. Tip #6

Tidy D.B. – a great use for one of those small crockpots!  I think they’re called “little dippers”.  I have one for heating herbs in oils…and it works great for this perfect little D.B. Tip.  Did you know you can use your crockpot as an air freshener?  Seriously!  Who’d have thunked it?  Morning sickness has been very rough the last couple of weeks…and smells have been the worst culprit.  I ran across this perfect idea at A Year of Slow Cooking and can honestly say it’s been a HUGE blessing.  Continue reading
