Today has been a nice quiet day.  I slept in (yay!), I was suppose to go to Olds for my mom’s PYOC class but my driveway was not being cooperative so I opted to stay at home instead of being out on the roads.  We were were out on them yesterday and they were terrible.  Actually our county was keeping the roads pretty good by the neighboring county to the north hadn’t done anything with the roads and they were like a skating rink.  So this afternoon I have relaxed, did some reading, cleared away some clutter and I have put together my very first lasagna!  I have never made one before but I really love this dish so I figured it was time to try.  It is in the oven baking now, I hope it is as good as Lori’s.  :o)

I think the rest of the day will include some light house work, supper and watching TV.  Thursdays are our heaviest day for TV shows.  We watch Mentalist, Bones, Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice.  And then it will be off to bed. 

Rabbit trails for today:

  1. Careership – an online adventure of career exploration -
  2. I want to put together a babysitting notebook (well actually I would like Deanna to put one together) because this month she is going to start babysitting solo at the family’s home (instead of at our house under our supervision)……. *   *     *
  3. Love your enemies  --
  4. The gift that starts the home  - – Deanna would like to start a hope chest for her future home, so I am looking at ideas for Xmas. 
  5. Grappling with God’s justice? --
  6. Make your own photo cards with Picasa -
  7. FREE calendar and day planner download --

Cute HSLDA Commercial (contest)

From a home school newsletter I get:

Hilarious HSLDA Commercial!

"My best friend's son (age 20) wrote the script, made the scenery, and produced this commercial for a competition through HSLDA (Homeschool Legal Defense Association). My best friend is 'Mother Goose'; she's been homeschooling for 20+ years.

I think HSLDA will be making the commericals available on their website so we can vote for our favorite (not sure if it will be all or if a narrowed down selection).

I think it is FANTASTIC!"

I did not wake up and stay awake at 6am this morning.  I did wake up but I was able to catch a few more zzzz’s.  Two days of early mornings and late nights was doing me in.  :o)  I feel much better today (well other than the weather is depressing me.)
