My favourite blogs

My favourite blogs

Because I’m so bad at actually maintaining my blog, I wanted to give you a few links to the blogs that I read consistently. I use Bloglines so it tells me which ones are updated. But there are the few blogs that I read every time they’re updated.

Preschoolers and Peace  Kendra is a mom of 8 who, although not perfect, shares what works (and doesn’t work!) for her family. This blog has been a tremendous source of information for me. And usually if Kendra recommends a book, I know it’s going to be good!

By Sun and Candlelight   Dawn’s blog is a breath of fresh air. She’s a homeschooler and her blog is such a resource for me.

The Pioneer Woman   And this one is great. Fantastic pictures, great recipes, just a good laugh. And I made her make ahead mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving and they were amazing.

Baker’s Dozen:  This is the blog of a woman in Washington who has a large family, 13 kids, some by adoption, some biological. She is also a homeschooler that I glean some great ideas from. And last year she spent over 60 hours at the dentist! I thought I was the only one. And best of all, she’s the one that told me about Fix Freeze Feast, my favourite cookbook!!

So, anyway, go have a look.

the weather, the gym, the sickness

The weather: It is like spring here. It’s been in the mid 60s. Parts of the country having horrible winter weather and here we are with almost record breaking temperatures. The good part is we’re not running our heater which of course saves us money. The bad part is that it’s supposed to be winter!

The gym: I go almost every day. I like it. My mom has loaned me her ipod so I put some music on there and now I can walk for ages. Yesterday I was there before 5:30 and was able to watch the initial inauguration events. I can tell that I’m getting stronger. And Handsome says certain parts of me aren’t as jiggly. That’s got to be a good thing, right? :)

The sickness: All of the kids are sick now. Precious is getting better, Cutie is in the middle of the yuckiness and Little Boy is starting to get a rattle in his chest. *sigh* I hate it when the kids are sick. We weren’t able to take Precious to choir yesterday and we’re staying home from BSF and AWANA today. I was up half the night with Little Boy because he just kept coughing and couldn’t stop. But finally he slept and then I did too. He sounds better this morning and I pray that he gets continually better so we don’t have a repeat of last night.
