Reading, Laughing and Loving

I feel like it’s been ages since I have sat down and blogged a real blog post. I just haven’t had the desire in me lately. I’ve been spending a lot of time praying, cleaning, exercising, packing and reading.  I’ve been reflecting and asking for wisdom and advice. I’ve been enjoying, laughing and loving my family. In all I have been going one day at a time trying to enjoy the times I have and listening to the Holy spirit guide me in my daily routines.


I’m not leaving my blogging life online but I am cutting back much of my online activities. It’s summer time and for the first year in a long time we are taking the summer off from schooling and just going to enjoy it. Of course we will continue reading throughout the summer. I am currently reading aloud The Kingdom series by Chuck Black. If you’ve never read it, it’s a great series of books for your tween/teen. My middle daughter is really loving it. She keeps asking what is going to happen next. lol I like when they get that involved in the story. It’s been loads of fun.


Of course we are also going through Dave Ramsey’s “Total Money Makeover”.. It is desperately needed. Plus I do have a couple other books that I will be reading and doing reviews on.  I am also going to try to catch up in the 365 project with my photography. There are some days that I just don’t know how to fit it all in. Thankfully though there is always tomorrow and I can not allow myself to get overwhelmed.


I am tired and trying to get rested and I am working on losing weight and clearing things out of the house. Clutter has to go. I can not stand living in clutter. I am looking forward to having a neat and organized home.


Well as I have a ton of things that need to be done today I will leave you with a list of books that we have read or picked up at the library to read.  Enjoy.
