Things I learnt in November

The weather was rather mild and we loved it! Thanksgiving in short sleeves ...yes please:)


What I have learned this month?


1- I discovered that  Julie http://blog.bravewriter.com/  started a new channel at Periscope .  She has some useful info about writing and she is doing a free workshop tomorrow for children if you want to check it out.






2- For fun fashion and to bring a smile  I follow Mode personnelle http://blogs.lexpress.fr/styles/mode-personnel/.  Check it out . It is a great way to practice French at the same time!




3-It is the time to have Christian Hope and to be Thankful even when it seems that darkness is everywhere. 




4- If you want to join in Advent devotion it isn't too late. I am doing Advent Reflections with St Francis :Daily Reflection By : Diane M. Houdek Franciscan Media / 2013 / Paperback
 A great little book, inexpensive to get you started and it takes 5 minutes max. We are enjoying it immensely.   Advent with St. Francis: Daily Reflections
We also read a Christmas related book. This morning it was this one. A great story of generosity.  Through this, I learn to be patient and  to start my day with a sense of hope and peace.The Baker's Dozen: A Saint Nicholas Tale

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.

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

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:
