On my to do list:::
Relax with the kids since we're on Spring Break

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Nothing actually.  Have quite a few projects here and there but haven't been able to do anything.

In Homeschooling:::
We are officially on Spring Break this week, so no schooling, just relaxing.   

Looking around the house:::
Washing machine is running, as usual.  The windows are all open, fresh breeze coming in.  Nicholas is playing the new Mario Party 9 on the Wii and Jasmine is still asleep.  AND my washing machine just finished the cycle so I need to go switch it over to the dryer.

From the camera:::
We took the kids to Sea Life this past Saturday.  So much fun and Nicholas always loves the touching tanks, he says the stars feel rough.  

Something fun to share:::
Check out this website called Make Your Own.  You will find tons of recipes for homemade like cleaners, hair products, air fresheners etc.    

On my prayer list:::
Friends and Family

Bible verse, Devotional::: 

To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are corrupted and do not believe, nothing is pure. In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted.
– Titus 1:15 (NIV)

Yay for Spring Break! It's always nice to get a week or so off to just relax and enjoy the family!

That sea life place looks like fun! We lived near a place like that growing up & I just loved being able to touch all the starfish!

How funny. We're having short ribs tonight too and I was wondering what to make as a side. Baked potatoes it is! Have a relaxing spring break.

Love the Sea Life picture! The touch tanks at our local aquarium are always happen to be closed so the animals can rest when we visit. :(

Love the lies in your weather forecast. They try to tell us the same lies here but I'm on to them!

My husband got me this book that really made me think of you. It's called Do It Gorgeously: How to Make Less Toxic, Less Expensive, and More Beautiful Products. It has how to make all kinds of things, makeup, pesticides, home cleaning solutions, things for your pets, and even food recipes.
