The Son is always shining, regardless of the weather

Six Random Things I Have Learned Recently…

Well, I have been “tagged” by a fun blogger, Jena Webber. I really enjoy reading her blog. She has some great ideas, and she always makes me laugh. I have never been tagged in a non-physical way. No, wait…maybe I have. I have been tagged as “crazy”, “fun-loving”, and “corny” by many. Apparently, this is […]

Talking Trash

Today, I have spent a fair amount of time searching for something small…something that was seen yesterday…and something that is important. It’s a part to my Magic Mill (it grinds our wheat). Yesterday, we baked bread, pizza rolls, and cheese twists for dinner (baking is always such fun). Today, we finished the clean up (which […]

My dad…Vice President…Cool!

My mom and dad came for a visit this past weekend. We had a great time! I love it when we sit around and tell old stories. I sure laugh a lot! We try to solve the world’s problems…and that’s pretty funny too! One of the reasons I blog is to record these funny stories […]

The Solution that was a Solution for the Accident that was an Accident!

Eureka! I have some unbelievably good news. The silly putty (click link to view previous post) was able to come out! I was seriously thinking about throwing the blanket away, when Kane (and Google) suggested I give germ gel a try. Well, it seemed believable because it had alcohol in it. However, the only thing […]

Silly Putty

Posted under LOL, Love To Learn, The Unexpected - Oct 8th, 08 - 3 Comments

Have you ever had a child come to you with a blanket that has silly putty on it (and it…the silly putty…has changed from the “solid/bouncy” state to some sort of “liquid/scary blob” state), and he looks at you with wondering eyes and says, “I’m not sure how this happened but…”. That happened to me […]

The “You’re Momma” moment:

A few weeks ago, I realized I was a mom (not in the literal sense…I have birthed six children…but rather in the figurative sense). Here’s the scenario: I went around the house taking everyone’s temperature (not because this is a favorite pastime…they all felt warm to me). No temperatures. All were dubbed “relatively normal”. Then […]

Our Late-Breaking News!

A little over two weeks ago (on Sunday 9-07-08), we came home to find the temperature very warm inside our home…our air conditioner had “frozen up”. I was so thankful Bc knew how to remedy this (two hair dryers melted away the ice that had formed on our system). I was very thankful to have […]

Finishing projects

Last Wed. night at prayer meeting, an elder mentioned the following verse of encouragement: Philippians 1:6 “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:” The NIV says it this way: …being confident of this, that he who began […]

Pride Goeth Before A Fall

Posted under LOL, Love To Learn, The Unexpected - Sep 10th, 08 - 1 Comment

On Monday, my neighbor asked if he could borrow our jumper cables. Well, I told him he could, if I could find them. The first (and most logical) place I looked was in my Suburban. Nope, it wasn’t there! Okay, maybe it was in the garage. So, I went into “Dad’s Domain” to try to […]

Thundering Waters

It was dark outside, the children were in bed, and I was ready to “call it a night” (or do you say “call it a day”?). I had six precious children under the age of nine, and I was tired. I loved my job as mom (and still do). I also loved what little sleep […]
