Can It Really Be Fall? How About Some Decorating Ideas?

Decorating for the holidays has never been my 'forte', so when my friend, Laurie, assigned the ladies at church to bring ideas for creative centerpieces and table settings for the holidays, my mind drew a complete blank!

Yes, the ever creative me..was at a total loss. It was unsettling, to say the least. Ask me to organize your files..and I'm fine..but decorating? Yipes!

Thank goodness, the internet is awash with lovely ideas for holiday decorating, crafts, and recipes. So even the most creatively challenged gal can come up with something a little unique and festive this year. 

Though I'm not that good at decorating...I'm a sucker for any DIY craft. These are just some of the fun ideas I scrounged up on my scavenger hunt last weekend.


Eating by the 'Rules' Can Help You Lose Weight Forever

Oh my goodness! Who would have thought that following a few simple rules for eating could speed my weight loss progress?  Thank you Bob Greene from "My Best Life"!         Credit

Here are the rules for losing weight that he suggests we abide by. ( I dropped another pound in two days following these rules--Total weight loss of 13.5 pounds since Sept. 5!)
  •  Rule 1: Don't eat after 7:30pm.


Morning Chat...on a Lovely Day

Hey friends, How are you?  I'm sure you are wondering if I fell off the edge of the planet.  What a busy couple of weeks we've had! I know..your week has been too. I'm beginning to think we'll all be 'busy' till we die..but I hope it's the 'right' kind of busy.

Our family has been 'busy' with birthdays--since four of my kids are born in October. We've also been walking, playing frisbee, counting calories on Lose It--my favorite weightloss tracking program and sigh..most of all doing taxes. But this morning..I'm just enjoying the great outdoors....


Motivating Your Kids to Learn

Ever asked yourself how to inspire your kids to give you their very best? How do you motivate your kids to want to add 'quality adjectives' or 'strong verbs' to a paragraph you've just assigned them to write for the week?   Or to even write at all!

It takes one simple tool--the right motivation.  The trick is figuring out what that is....
