Snapshots of Our Summer

Two months since my last post.  Two months of summer holidays.  Two months of celebrations. Two months of no routine.  Two months of memories… We Feasted. We Played. We Bonded. xx  

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This morning as I was cleaning up I saw these sad fruits staring at me… pleading with me… not to throw them away,but to make them beautiful again. So we did. After a quick search on Pinterest for the Best Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Ever, one of our favourite movies, Christmas Vacation, went in the dvd…

The Heaven’s Declare His Glory

I have a slight obsession with clouds, especially when they look like marshmallows and the sun is streaking through them just right. They are magnificent, aren’t they? While taking an early morning flight this week, I was able to experience my love for clouds up close and fully spectacular. I truly believe that: The heavens…

An Extremely Sensitive Soul

  It is so easy to let life overwhelm you. I don’t have a lot in my life to stress, upset or even anger me. I certainly haven’t been through hugely traumatic events or disasters that would warrant an overly anxious reaction. Lord willing, this will continue.  Yet, somehow I feel totally overwhelmed sometimes. Stressed…

Fun times

We have had a busy few weeks… here’s a little bit of what we have been up to: We started working on a new pond for the yard. We had an amazing over-the-top, way-too-much-food brunch to celebrate Father’s Day. This resulted in a challenge to see who could actually get their burgers in their mouth…  easier…

Guest Writer!*

*For part of our homeschooling adventures, Master 9 tried his hand at blogging today.  I think he did a pretty good job!  Hope you enjoy his take on Winging It By Grace. xx Hi, I am today’s guest writer. My mom writes this blog. Sometimes I read it. I am 9 years old. I like…

Sunshine and Lemons

Yesterday morning we awoke to sunshine streaming through the curtains and blue skies.  I also found I had an abundance of lemons in the fridge that needed to be used asap. What to do, what to do… why Lemon Meringue Pie of course! This pie is delicious!  I love the tartness of the lemon curd paired with…

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

I mentioned in my last post that we recently celebrated Christmas in July.  This is always a fun few days for us as we get all of our favorite Christmas movies out, do lots of crafts, and hang out as a family.  Hubby tries to take a couple of days off work so we can…

Where Does the Time Go?

Every morning, I wake up and think, “I must write a blog post today.”  I had been enjoying writing so much and hearing all of your thoughts and suddenly life got in the way. But you know what, that’s a good thing! We had 2 weeks of school holidays.  Here school is divided into 4…

The World is Hurting

There is so much going on right now it is really hard to comprehend sometimes.  Anger, Fear, Hate, Racism, Bigotry, and pure Evil seems to be surrounding us at every corner.  It’s scary.  It’s scary for us and it’s scary for our beautiful children and future generations. What do we do? We pray.  We get…

4th of July? Time for more pie!

Happy 4th of July!!!  Here where I live it is already the 5th, we were allowed to start our celebrations a day early, and being American myself, I always stress that we are now allowed two days of celebrations!  Birthdays, holidays, family traditions… we spread the joy and make it worthwhile! As you can probably…

When did I grow up?

Do you ever wonder when you grew up? Now I am not talking literally growing up in terms of height, age and stature.  It’s more of an inside thing I’m meaning. I watch my children as they play with a sense of awe and wonder. They have a fantastical imagination. They see joy in EVERYTHING….
