What I am Reading

Image
I read many blogs where families are reading together daily. Children have their own monthly reads as well as the parents. I thought you guys would love to know what I am diving into this month.

Yes, I know this is a children's book. What is wrong with reading fun books that are made to give children a proper balance between imagination and life lessons? I have already gotten past chapter one in the first day and I'm captured by the adventurous rabbits. I will follow this up with the sequel, The Black Star, next month.


I read Aesop Fables quite often. I love how life's lessons intermingle with animals, nature and people. I believe that I will be able to get similar and unique life lessons from Proverbs. I am hoping to find hope for our infertility struggle via Proverbs. 
I plan on updating you guys what I am reading each month. My reading slows down in the winter months because I teach children and I am busy reading the books for their lessons. I can share those also.

Most Expensive Gift for Myself

These vanity promoting magazines suggested thousand dollar purses, jewelry, and even cars. I flipped through as many magazines as possible trying to find something that I would want. I already have fancy, expensive purses from Coach, Dooney & Bourke, and Louis Vuitton that were gifts and hand-me-downs. I use them once in a while. I received my first diamond(s) at 16 years old. I don't even wear them and they have more sentimental value than the purses.

I was lost on what I can purchase for myself that would be expensive, and worth it. I don't want to waste money on something that will sit in my closet. I didn't want to buy anything that would promote the wrong cause. (Many companies use child and slave labor to manufacture their products.) I was so confused on what to buy so I bought nothing. I let age 30 come and go and I never bo…

Loving Beyond-Aldi Haul

Image
I love my husband! I loved him when I said "Yes!" and "I Do!" I would do anything for his health so that he could be with me forever on this big blue green ball. Hubby has been on a gluten free diet for nearly two years. It has been a cooking struggle and pleasure. I have damaged so many brownies, cookies, pancakes and more. But sweet hubby ate them all. Sometimes with a smile and other times not. Such a sweetie.

To decrease the amount of gluten free disasters, I try to add in a few prepackaged goods. With that thought it mind, I finally walked into Aldi. I heard that they had a few gluten free items along with cheap meats and canned goods. I am always a little leary with cheap meats because of a not so happy experience a few years ago...I dont want to remember it.



Well check out our small haul. I was able to find gluten free crackers, cookie mix, cornbread and tortilla wraps. We rounded out our grocery shopping with cans of beans and tomatoes, frozen lemonade, se…
