NaBloPoMo – Day 12 I admit I didn’t take my camera out at all this week until Sunday. And even then, it was only because Best Shot Monday was creeping up on me and I had to have something to share. ;) The kids were playing in the yard, and Julian, my baby toddler, captured my attention. My best shot is Julian “getting away.” And I’m sharing this second one just because I think he’s cute. See more best shots over at Picture This (click the button):

NaBloPoMo – Day 11 It was a busy weekend around here (the first of many!), complete with a Lantern Walk and potluck dinner (celebrating Martinmas) at Ava’s preschool, a housewarming party at my friend‘s new (and gorgeous) house, more leaf raking and bagging (we’re finally done!), a haircut for Ava, Freecycling a table and chairs set, as well as birthday (Julian) and Christmas toy shopping. Thanks to a tip from my friend Melissa, I spent over an hour on Saturday looking through toys at Tuesday Morning of all places. They got a shipment of German wooden toys in and there were deals to be had!Read More →

NaBloPoMo – Day 10 Green tip of the week: When raking up your leaves this fall, be sure to set aside a bag or two to keep and use as “brown” (dry) material for your compost bin/pile throughout the coming year.

Please email them to me and I may include your tip along with a link to your site or blog in a future post. :)

EDITED TO ADD: This giveaway has been concluded. NaBloPoMo – Day 9 In my opinion, there are four things necessary to make a good cleaning product. It has to be non-toxic. It has to have a pleasant smell. It has to be affordable. It has to get the job done. Lily’s Garden Herbals natural cleaning products accomplish all of these things. After our recent run-in with the stomach flu, I needed to do some serious bathroom cleaning. I put Lily’s Garden Herbals All Purpose Clean (All Purpose Cleaner – 32 oz. – $6.50) to the test. The bathroom was sparkling in no time and IRead More →

NaBloPoMo – Day 8  Julian is not gonna do it. Eat, that is. The boy has refused pretty much all food since he had the pukies last week. Once he recovered from the pukies, he’s had to contend with getting two more top teeth, bringing his total toothy count to 8 once this last pesky incisor comes through. He’s decided the best way to deal with the pain of teething is to stop eating. I can’t blame him for not wanting anything to come in contact with his mouth other than a soft boob or his fingers. He’s been gnawing on his hands like crazy.Read More →
