{ Another cow in the field }

January 22, 2019

One of the perks of living in the country???

The occasional cow visit from the fields across the highway.  The first time it happened I was so confused, and surprised to see a cow across from my house, but it's now become a common occurrence and not an eyelid is batted.

We just go across the highway to the owner, and let them know their cows have escaped their pen again.

{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 01/21/2019 }

Good morning and a very Happy Monday to you all :)

I sure do hope your weekends were restful and calm and that you had a blessed time with your family.  I have a wonderful weekend of doing nothing, catching up on my show and hanging out with my family.  It was blissful!!!

It is Monday though so it's back at it for everyone, well some, we have school going on but my husband is off work today, which is nice.  I have a house that is needing some attention after my slacked off weekend so I'll be busy putting it to order today.

Let's see what else is going on shall we?

{ Slow Saturday }


As a stay at home mom, it is not easy to get away from our jobs, considering we live at work, right?

When we first got married, when I would get frustrated with the housework or the monotony of it, I would sometimes tell Curt that I wish I had a job where I could also go away for 8 hours and then come home and switch off and relax.

Over the years, I've learned to love what I do, but truth be told, there are still days, especially on the weekends when I see everyone relaxing from work and school, that I feel like I kinda of wish I was also able to sit back and do absolutely nothing.

{ Moving at a turtle's pace }

January 7, 2019

What a crazy night it was!!!!

We didn't fall asleep until 11pm, then the alarm went off at midnight to take my brother in law to the airport.  My Jasmine actually went with my husband and I stayed home with Nicholas and the pup.  I thought I would be able to sleep, but forget that, I just can't seem to get any sleep when my husband is not near me.

It's nuts, and trust me, it's been this way for a very long time, deployments were brutal when it came to sleeping.  I used to tell my husband that I felt like I was holding my breath the whole time he was gone, and only really let it out when he was back home with us.

{ Reading and Ironing }

January 16, 2019

There are days that the housework tasks are so many, that I feel like I hit the ground running in the morning, and don't stop until my head hits the pillow.  See, even though I'm at home all day, you would think that things would be always slow or laid back, and for the most part, they can be, but there are also days that the work is never ending and continous.

{ Taking back our homes - Living Simply }

 Tasha Tudor

“I enjoy doing housework, ironing, washing, cooking, dishwashing. Whenever I get one of those questionaires and they ask what is your profession, I always put down housewife. It's an admirable profession, why apologize for it. You aren't stupid because you're a housewife. When you're stirring the jam you can read Shakespeare.”

{ Happy Homemaker Monday - 01/14/2019 }

Good morning everyone :)  
This post is going up a little later than usual, and I wasn't able to get any posts up this weekend, but I had a houseful of guests and was hosting and making sure everyone was having fun, fed and entertained.
By the time everyone left, I took a shower and literally crashed on the bed, I was exhausted, but we had an amazing time with family and that is all that matters.
I hope you had a fantastic weekend as well.  
Now, let's see what is coming up in the week ahead, shall we?

{ Homemaking with a joyful heart }

Hello everyone, come on in and sit a little.  It is a cold and rainy day, the house is dark, the candles are lit and the coffee is warm, just perfect to sit and have a little chat.

The past week and a half, the Lord has been speaking to my heart on the importance of my job as a homemaker.  It's something that I take seriously, it's something that I enjoy and it's a job that I love wholeheartedly.

I've always loved homemaking, and from a very young age I was fascinated with it all.  While kids my age would play outside or dream about being a movie star or a doctor, my heart and mind was on being a wife, a mother and having my own home.

{ Cooking Thursday - Navajo Tacos }

Navajo Tacos, Indian Fry Bread, Indian Tacos, pretty much the same thing.  If you have never heard of Navajo Tacos, let me tell you a little about them.

Navajo Tacos were invented in 1864, using flour, sugar, salt and lard.  The Navajo tribe had been given these ingredients by the US Government, when they were forced to leave their land and make the 300 mile "Long Walk" to New Mexico.  Often times, the food ingredients supplied by the government were rancid, and so the tacos came about using just the simplest of ingredients available to the tribe.
