Around the House

(by, Susan Branch!)

Happy Wednesday! I haven't meant to be MIA, but boy sometimes life takes off and I have all I can do to keep up with it! I am out of batteries for my camera so as soon as I can get to the store I'll have some pictures to share!!

I have been working so hard on homeschooling. I am trying to finish our year well as well as plan for next year. I like to have all my plans done before summer when I can.

To correct our little glitches, I have been correcting every night and then planning appointments for each child in each subject he or she needs help in. This can be tricky because there are lessons I need to teach and so I have to schedule around that time too. But it's working and I am feeling back on track!

Next week I will be spring cleaning with the ladies at the Titus 2 Christian Homekeepers Message Board. I am ready!! For the first time in about 3 years, I am actually ready!! We have been cleaning out closets and organizing in our spare time on the weekends. This way I won't be tidying AND scrubbing, just scrubbing. You can bet I will have 3 helpers and we will make short work of it I hope! It is nice to get the spring cleaning done before the snow melts. Once snow melts it is time to head outside!

I have done NO knitting or sewing for a whole month!! Hopefully that will change soon, but first things first and that isn't first. But I do miss it!! If I can at least print off my Monthly KALS that I missed and get my thread and needles together maybe I can take them with me tomorrow for Rachel's dance classes. It will be nice to have my hands busy while she dances. Lately I have just felt like I am running a sprint every day. It'll change... :)

I hope all who read are well!! Is your snow gone? Mine is still piled high!! What is your spring like?? Spring cleaning? Decluttering? Winding down schooling?

Hi Karen!

No, the snow is not gone, but it is diminishing, thanks to freezing rain we received two days ago! The temps are getting warmer and it's supposed to be 50 degrees on Friday! You sound like you are getting your nest in order in every way! How good it will feel to get plans for next Fall and also to Spring Clean next week!

Blessings to you! Pam

Our snow is gone and it is in the 50's here so it is on it's way to you too!!
I have done no sewing to speak of either and for the same reason...home schooling. Priorities are in line so the sewing will be there when the time is. I have been thinking of the Titus 2 Spring Clean. I have the e-mails and may just join in.
Good to hear from you again.

The snow is gone and we're having our usual spring weather: cold, hot, cool, cold again! LOL!
I'm looking SO forward to the T2CHK spring clean this year. I've done my decluttering and we're ready to dive in and CLEAN!
God bless you today, Karen :o)

Hey Karen,

No snow here, and honestly, it's just plain ol' too warm here! But you know me, and you know that anything above 65 degrees is too warm for me :) Getting ready to plant the garden here in the next several days, and next weekend I get to drive to San Diego with some friends to go to the Beth Moore Living Proof Live conference....I can't wait!!!!! :)
