My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

Outside My Window


The actual view of my window in the dining room, looking out!  The remnants of Valentine's Day still linger. 

I am thinking...
What a busy week Valentine's Day is!
We had a homeschool family dance last Saturday. Mr. Pete and Rosie went with me to pick up 150 pieces of fried chicken and 5 trays of cheesy ziti to deliver it to the dance. 

It was also Miss C's first dance with her daddy!

Then on Wednesday, our co-op had a Valentine's exchange. So we made Valentines and brought our bags and boxes!   


We were supposed to go to another party on Friday, but Miss C. had a cough and a fever so we stayed home, but only after we had already prepared brownies and more Valentines!  I saved those Valentines for next year. 

We at the brownies!

I am thankful...

That we have such a vibrant homeschool community and that I can still be a part of it. 

I am reading:

The Brave Learner

You can read about this book and listen to a pod cast about it here.

I am pondering...

Some things I read about osteoarthritis of the knees. My knee is not swelling and it doesn't hurt that bad. Considering how messed up it is on the inside, I think I can live with it for a while. So just as I researched natural ways to deal with ulcerative colitis, I think I'm going to look into some more natural remedies for osteoarthritis. 

I am using CBD oil on my thumb which was giving me fits. I'm not sure how effective it is, but it seems to really soothe the inflammation. It's also in with so many other nice smelly things like lavender and mint, that I rather enjoy applying it!  The actual cannabis is like the 12th ingredient. It really shouldn't be the marquee ingredient!

One of my Favorite Things...

Cough and a fever, but still that sparkling personality!
