What I learned in January




1-  Everyday,take 15 minutes to learn on a new subject.  You can even start the 15 minute Scholar challenge from this blog:http://mentoringourown.com

2-   Everyday, take 15 to 30 minutes in order to tackle a messy corner in your house. Put a timer on if necessary.

3-    Reading a small devotional quote will help to start the day.  I enjoy this one:

The key is to not overdo it .  One email a day is enough.

4-   Seek the beauty in the ordinary.

refurnish your sink

When we moved into our new house, I loved our custom sink .  What I didn't love was that it was 20 years old , all scracht up and almost impossible to replace. The easiest solution was to have it refurbished.   This has to be done by professional.  A porceleine sink  will first be sanded , then painted, holes,scratches will be putted.  The last step is to seal the sink.  The area has to be protected and well aired. The result is stunning.     Before:
 After:

This process avoids complication one can encountered to changed a custom sink. It is well worth it.

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!
