|My red-white-and blue garden (though the blue is really more like a purple). I love bulbs - plant them once and they keep coming back!|
|We hope to be buying baby chicks this week! We have two hens that seem to be broody.|
This book came along at a perfect time for me. For many months now I have been particularly feeling strangled and weighed down by all our stuff. I am so tired of shifting stuff from here to there and things never staying tidy for long. It seems that stuff just piles up faster than I can sort through it and deal with it properly. (Possessions really can be a curse.) All this saving things in case we might need it one day - well that isn't practical when your house is about to explode from the amount of stuff! I feel like the rat in the wheel that just keeps spinning and I just want to crawl under something and sob and admit defeat. Do I sound overly dramatic? Well it's how I feel right now. In my dream world, everyone would leave and I would have one month to completely go through everything in our house uninterrupted. I'd rent a dumpster and purge away. Of course that isn't realistic and I'd miss my family terribly! Sp I am slowly trying to chip away at things. Hopefully I can pick up the pace later this summer, when we take a break from homeschool.

I will probably post about this more in the coming month or so, as I have been following the treatment with my sons for a week now, and am already seeing good results! I know this isn't something talked about much, but if it works, this knowledge really does need to be spread. If these are things your child struggles with, I highly recommend you buy the book right now. I was surprised just how fascinating it was. (!) The author has a great sense of humor.
|Hunter is showing his "pet" LED lights the 3 mason jar lights he assembled to sell|
Note that the lamp on the right, with the reddish shade, has already been sold. If you are interested in one of the others, please contact me. Prices are as follows (does not include shipping):
1) Brown lampshade, clear mason jar that says "mason" and has an "H" and ship's anchor on it, jar is filled with blue and green "gems". Cost is $33.00 (or $28.00 WITHOUT the gems)
2) White lampshade, blue mason jar that says "Ball Perfect Mason" on it. Cost is $28.00. (I think this lampshade would look really cute dressed up with a red gingham ribbon glued around it.)
