It seems a little hard for me to believe that 2010 is already over. I guess I am at the stage of my life when times flies very fast! I remember when days seemed to last forever when I was a child (and especially when I was waiting for something important!) but that time is no more. That's all right I will enjoy life however it comes!
I am excited to be starting another year. God has blessed us so over abundantly it will be fun to see Him working yet again! I hope you have a blessed year too!
I have been thinking about what I want to do on this blog this year, I thought I would share some of my thoughts with you.
I have been thinking about setting aside Monday's as a special day for that on my blog. That doesn't mean I will have a giveaway or a review every Monday but I do want to try to keep them only on that day.
I have enjoyed being able to work with Tropical Traditions and we do have more giveaways lined up with them. I am also open to doing giveaways for others- let me know if you have a business and would like to have me do a giveaway and review for you. I plan on keeping the items reviewed or given away as stuff that goes along with being a Proverbs 31 woman.
I plan on focusing even more this year on making new things from old things (or what some people might call "Junk"). It has crossed my mind to host a carnival (with a linky) with the theme being turning trash to treasure- Is anybody interested in something like that?
I am not sure if I will do this as a once a week thing or maybe devote a whole week (or month) to it. We shall see... I would love your input.
This winter we have surely been enjoying teas from the herbs we dried and others we have purchased. They can be so soothing as well as helping in other ways.
Come harvest season again, I plan to continue on with telling about how we use and simply put up the harvest that God blesses us with.
I love to eat yummy nutritious food that we have picked and it is fun to preserve it for the winter (and times like now I am always so grateful that I did!) but I don't like it taking an extreme amount of work. I tend to look for the simplest methods. I will try to share what I do with you and look forward to hearing any tips that you have!
Currently I am trying to make sure that we have at least one item in every meal that was grown/produced locally- preferably from our own yard. It has been a fun challenge for the winter.
I also hope to write more on our homeschooling journey. It isn't always easy but I am so often in awe of how God helps everything to fit together in our learning. In so many areas we just love to learn together! I hope to share more about what is working for us and I will try to keep it real by sharing some of our challenges too.
One of my themes for this year is SIMPLICITY. I am striving for that in our lives and I hope to share some of the things that I am learning and what is working for us with you.
And as always I will share bits and pieces from our lives. I like to be able to write about what is going on it our lives.
I am looking forward to this year- I think it will be fun to blog in it. I do so enjoy hearing from you and I hope you will join me in my journey!
-The topics listed above are some of the things I have been thinking about blogging on- but I am sure it won't be limited to that. Ken and I have laughed over the idea of my having a blog focused on one topic- I am afraid that just isn't my style! :-)
