I didn't Fall off the Earth!

Well...I guess you might think I fell off the earth. Not quite although I think it might be a nice vacation!

It's been an interesting month. I've been working on a few project and trying to get things ready for the holidays. We've also been doing some work on the house.

We started the house in 2003 and we are FINALLY putting up some trim. The living room and hallway look GREAT and they are almost finished! I'm so excited! I also got a great deal on a mantel-shelf and hubby and the boys put that up Saturday. Soon they will be done with the installing the trim and they'll be looking to me to paint it! LOL! I didn't think about it until later but I should have taken a "before" and "after" photo to show you! Oh well...you'll forgive me, right? I hope so.

Another thing I did this past month was present a "Money Saving Tips" night to my fellow homeschool moms. It was great! We played a little game; had some snacks and they tell me that they learned a lot. I hope they did. :) We even made homemade laundry soap although my crockpot (which I used to heat and dissolve the soap) went cold on me so the soap didn't turn out EXACTLY right but it still works.

Now I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. I've experimented with a few new recipes and want to share those with you and I'm working on a few more.

Thank you for checking back with me and thanks to all those who subscribe!

Have a great day!
