Honey Lemon Tea and our morning…

February 15, 2010

For the past few days, I’ve been enjoying a new  “tea”.  It’s touted to be a natural detox and good for the skin. Some even claim that it aids in weight loss. I have it once in the morning (during school with the kids) and once in the evening during dinner prep or after the kids go to bed.  Very soothing, relaxing and very tasty to boot!  Thought I’d give it a try and see if their are any noticeable benefits.  I’ll keep you posted!  Here’s the recipe if you want to give a try along with me…

…enjoying these so very very much….

Our very own Winter Wonderland!

February 1, 2010

We had ourselves quite the little snowstorm here in western NC Friday afternoon.  And for this south GA native, it was quite the event!  We had another snow event back in December, but I missed it due to the fact that it happened an hour AFTER I was admitted into the hospital for the birth of Jacob.  Nothing like watching the snow out of a tiny hospital window complete with view of opposite hospital room and patient right outside said tiny hospital window and the added bonus of post surgery nausea and pain from a csection.  Yeah, that’s  nice.   But this time, this time,  I was able to enjoy it with coffee cup in one hand and new babe in the other.  And it was just beautiful.  We ended up with 7 inches in our yard. I snapped some photos and thought I’d share them with you.  By the way, for those of you that subscribe to MinivanLife via bloglines or a reader, be sure to click on over and check out the new banner. Yes, October is FINALLY over and I changed it to February.  GEEZ, October lasted a looong time didn’t it?!  Oh well… moving on….

Our view of the neighbors yard and trees…

Our front yard…

Aidan, thinking he’s going to pelt his mom with a snowball… don’t worry, I threatened to ground him for a  month if he did it…

…he did it anyway…

Our driveway and willow trees… sigh…I do love willow trees…

My Lilianne….  my girl… my mini-me…  (will those teeth ever grow in?!?!!)

Sarah, loving her sled… thanks Nana!

I LOVE this photo…. I can’t believe I caught her face like that!

Our home… the hubs took this photo… that’s me, the little green spot, on the bottom front porch.  I really need to buy myself some snow boots.  I had on my cute new blue converse and couldn’t bring myself to walk thru the snow in them.

My oldest two and their snowman…

I edited these photos with Pioneer Woman‘s actions….  I just love the way they turned out…

Again with the willow trees… sigh… I do love my willow trees….

Hi there…

October 16, 2009

Please forgive my absense… we’ve adopted a new school schedule this week that is taking up my morning blogging tgime.  Also, my youngest, Sarah 4, has come down with a fever and what I can only assume is the same virus/flu as my son  had all last week.  He is much better, only a cough remians.  Apparently its’ a 7-10 day virus making it’s rounds … so that gives me at least another week of the sickies… assuming my other daughter and me and my husband don’t get it.  I’ll be back soon (hopefully within a few days!) when things get into a semi-normal mode around here.  For now, I want to concentrate on my family.

Wishing you all a healthy and happy weekend!!

Progress…

Quick post this morning as the house is in critical condition and the laundry has exploded…. just wanted to pop in to show you who is up and about playing this morning!  After seeing him listlessly lying on the couch all week, it’s good to see him with some energy.

 

A little progress was made on the Value Quilt. over the weekend..

Have a great MONDAY!!
