On the Missionary Field: We reconnected with an old friend in the past few months. This has given us an open door to learn more about the ministry field and connect with others who share our passion.

Around the House: That flylady blitz I had planned last week did not even get started! Sometimes you plan your week and other times your week plans you! We did get the basics done.

In the Schoolroom: Gals finished vocabulary and literature. That's three classes done for the year! ( finished Geography a while back) Amazing.

On the Bookshelve: Same books! But no time to read this week. Hitting the books today!

In the Kitchen: Busy week! Last weeks leftovers carried us till midweek. Then we had fajitas, eggrolls,and a porkroast. (which I might add made more leftovers!) I have a ham that needs to go in the crockpot by tomorrow. We just were not home much this week so we ate on the run out of the fridg. Hubby planned a nice Valentines Day dinner. We celebrated early as everyone would be home.

On the Creative Side: Finished the project I tore out last week. I think I finally figured out how to do it!

Thrifty Finds;This week we found two treasures. You can read about the finds here: http://www.homeschoolblogger.com/solidrock/764895/   I learned that the dress was $110.00 brand new. I paid 29.99 for it! It was most likely worn once for a wedding.

I also went shopping for a pair of dress pants and blazer. Found exactly what I needed at the thrift store for $2.00. My youngest daughter found three name brand tees for 25 cents each, and a brand new pair of name brand tennis shoes for $2.00. Our thrift store dones buy one get one free on clothes every saturday.Plus at the yard sale part of the thrift store the clothes are only 25 cents. You just have to be willing to dig through boxes.

I could not leave the thrift store without a few books in hand. I found a total of 8  Max Lucado and Bruce Wilkinson books for $4.50. Now to find time to read them all! 

Christmas and Birthday Boxes: One handmade gift added this week.

Goals for this coming week: Declutter, Scour the kitchen, read a book.



  1. Impressive Thrift Store finds. Bless you on your goals for this week.

  2. Sounds like you all had a real busy week. I need to do better at having left overs in the fridge for the really busy weeks. McDonalds eating must STOP!!! Really, we do not eat there very often but gross when we do.



  3. It sounds like a good and busy week as usual! I hope this week is getting off to a great start too.


  4. Great Thrift Finds! Good luck decluttering.

  5. Bargain-shopping is a talent that I do NOT possess! I like bargains, but I just don't like shopping. I may have to check out that website for sure. Thanks for sharing!
