Things I learnt in September

September was a  time to reflect:

1- I need to slow down when I feeling sick( Duhh). I am not the first mom and won't be the last to overstretch herself. However, I am now making a conscientious choice to slow down and be present in the moment. 

2- Read, read and write....  Yes, I need something else than just Homeschooling and the family will be better for it:)

3-Pray and exercises are precious moment not to be ignore. Busy schedule, school to teach, kid activities can take over . I noticed a difference when I take the time to pray and walk, my children might even join me.

4- Finally, it is not easy to reach out to people  but like the old song says" It is a beautiful world "


Smile!

A bientot !

Things I learnt in July

1-Mail please? At the creation of Huntsville in Alabama, habitants used to have to read the newspaper to learn if they had mail.  The post-office was founded much latter.




2-Missed opportunities: it is so sad to think that sometimes we miss opportunities to express our gratitude, love before it is too late.




3- How productive are you and does it matter in front of God? on going conversation...




4- After being disappointed in my last two reads, I am changing strategy and  I am going to tackle a list of the greatest work( fiction and non-fiction) this one : http://thegreatestbooks.org/   This is a personal challenge however if you want to join me ,leave a comment.


5- May your morning be bright and beautiful!



What I learned in May

I found this reflection very helpful to be close to God.  Fr Leo talks about the 5 C :content(faith), conflict( doing his will and not ours), conversation( God is in us , we are never alone), cooperation( with our Lord, I am alive in Him) and contribution( I will bring something of him into the world).  Let's write an unfinished symphony!

baguettes et petites joies

I always felt that baguettes are best left for the professionals( how French of me, right?) however I found this great blog with video http://karine-cuisine.blogspot.fr/2016/02/les-baguettes.html. So I tried it and

You will need a morning or afternoon.  The process is rather long but not difficult.  Also there is huge room for improvement in my design, it was a hit with the family.





I also encountered ces petites joies today:
