New Blog Address

I have been Simulcast-Blogging between this blog (my first) and my newer (and prettier) blog at HomeschoolBlogger. To tell you the truth, I am tired of copy and pasting every post to each blog. In fact, that's the reason why you never got the end of the Decluttering series!

Do you mind just reading the other blog from now on?

Here is the link: Keeping the Home

and here is the address in case you need it: (the blog is the same as this one; just because it is hosted at homeschool blogger does not mean I only post hs stuff!)

I'd love it if you stuck with me!

Day Thirteen: Declutter Your Home Series: The Home Manager

In today's post by Mrs. Cat, well worth a read today (click here), she urges us to think of five blessings. Even when things are going rough, as they have been for me lately, I can always think of five blessings, because there are five members of my family besides me! :)

Here are my blessings, right off the top of my head:

  • After a decade of asking for it, I am so grateful to God that we live in the countryside (on good old American soil!).
  • I am thankful for Tim, who works hard to provide for us, and who gives me anything I ask, especially when I look at him in just the right way (how else do you think I got him to agree to the goats?).
  • I am thankful for our four children. Not only did we get four blessings, but we were double-blessed by having two boys and two girls.
  • I am thankful for this house that I get to work in daily.
  • I am most thankful that I get to stay at home with our children. They are a treat that I would not miss!

What are your five blessings?

Day Twelve: Declutter Your Home Series: Mrs. Cat's Story

Today we have a personal story to read from Mrs. Cat (click here to read it). For those of you who are just now joining, we are decluttering our homes for 21 days on this blog, with the help of Mrs. Cat's blog posts.

I have had a great amount of clutter in my home in the past, too, and could write you a long story to read about it. But for now, read Mrs. Cat's story, and I'll write mine another time. I am experiencing great back pain (not great as in "good," of course!) and just want to lie down for a while!

I hope you've had a good day today!
