Ah, what a week. We’ve been on school break and it was an absolute delight! Ten things from this week: Reading- The Last Time They Met, but I’m struggling to get a rhythm with it Watching- the kids play with our new puppy Listening to- The Secret Daughter seasonnone soundtrack (and wishlisting season two) Creating- an attitude of gratitude with a few of the thankfulness

As part of my continued effort in revamping my morning routine, I have started writing “morning pages” as a brain dump and a way to get my head in the game. And then I started a 30 day slow childhood challenge that had journaling prompts, so that required another notebook. With my basket suddenly  filling up with notebooks, I decided a storage solution was in

The joy of school break is that I suddenly have all this “free” time that is usually consumed by school. By free time, of course, I mean snatches of 30 seconds where someone isn’t hungry or arguing over bike ownership or losing a Lego piece that is integral to their ongoing survival, so not really free in the way of being master of my own

…bible journaling – current favourites…

TBC-0887

I’ve been trying to get back into the habit of regular bible journaling, with the help of my new morning basket. I’ve been slack this week, however, because on Sunday I took my journaling bible to church to take part in a series of interviews with various members of the congregation on how we read our bible, as part of our celebration of both Reformation

…pocket money cashbooks…

One of the things I’ve found hardest to manage in this almost-cashless society of ours, isn’t coming across that one little shop that doesn’t have eftpos, but something a lot closer to home…pocket money. Because I don’t really carry cash these days, to pay out the kids pocket money involves a trip to the bank, looking like a dork asking for $20 in $1 coins

…december daily travellers notebook…

December Daily, the theory goes, is an every day memory keeping project, each day in December. As good as the theory is, I have both 2015 AND 2016 sitting in my “to finish” pile – whoops!! Once I finished my selfie minibook, I started working on my 2016 December Daily as part of my 31 minutes project. I am verging in on getting it finished,

…project life 2017…

TBC-0657

In between everything else, my poor old Project Life album is looking very neglected. And by neglected I mean I’m still working on 2015 🙈 and completely skipped 2016… But I still love the concept and the process, so I have picked it back up for the latter half of 2017, as our main record for homeschool. Every weekend I print photos using my Canon

How is it Sunday again? Ten things from my week: -reading :: The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton was a finish this week, and I started The Time Travellers Wife for the 7000th time -listening to :: alternating between acapella pop covers on YouTube, and our burgeoning collection of classical music (we study one composer a week and end up getting our favourites on iTunes)

With the advent of homeschooling in our house, my schedule had to readjust somewhat, now that I have three school aged children at home full time, along with the mini munchkin. One activity that we still attend is our church playgroup that I help run each week, which the big boys like to help out with as well. But like the mean old mummy I

…travel planner…

TBC-0776

It’s a pretty regular occurance around here, to pick up sticks come mid-year, and hit the road for a month in our camper trailer, in search of adventure, red dirt and warmth. This, of course, is a pretty decent excuse to get my craft on and make alllll the things, like quilts and bags and bags and bags (spoiler alert – there’s another set or
