Odds and ends

We had craft mania this morning. A friend and her daughter came over and we did 5 crafts in three hours, some with the bulldozer (who adds a measure of drama to any activity.) Mostly we did the very easy, put together for you Oriental Trading Company crafts. We also made cinnamon applesauce ornament. I love the smell of cinnamon, but dealing with it that close really gets you. I think the cinnamon particles have embedded themselves in my nasal membranes.

The Carnival of homeschooling was two days ago at Dewey’s Treehouse. Mama Squirrel has a great “guess the quotation” game woven in. She’s creative and industrious. We’re dad less this week, so I haven’t had time to go through all of the entries, but Rebecca at Little Homeschool on the Praire has some wise words on The Homeschool Mystique. There is a tendency to think of homeschooling as some sort of mutant spider bite or cosmic ray that turns your child into a superhero rather than an educational methodology (or way of life, or deeply held conviction. You get the drift.)

Clomid is also used to shop at site cialis wholesale prices treat anovulation, PCOS, and irregular periods in women. I wonder how many failed relationships these so called experts are responsible for! The under lying feeling behind this advice is that porn is dirty so no wonder it’s effecting your “normal” sex life – complete cialis professional for sale bunkum. The most recent machine of Handsome pump in Pakistan which More Discounts canada viagra offer change to a great degree extremely able and ensures speedy result. It fulfils all the conditions and let s people live in peace without it. viagra in stores browse for more info 100mg comes up with the best components of Sildenafil citrate inside it. Also, apparently I have been nominated for the Homeschool Blog Awards in the category of best new homeschool blog. Which I find nice and odd. (Don’t ask me why I find it odd, I just do.) Things have been quite exciting with controversies abounding at the HBA. But frankly, I just don’t care. Vote, don’t vote. Whatever. There’s a kabillion categories and a kabillion entries in each category. I’m going to vote for those on my blog roll because it’s just too daunting. In fact, just thinking about it makes me need a nap. That or the fact that MTG has been out of town since Sunday night and doesn’t come home till tomorrow night. I tried to trick the bulldozer for sleeping in (say to 6:30) by skipping his nap yesterday. He fell asleep at 4:30 pm and then woke up at 11:00pm. So that didn’t work. And yes, he woke up at 6:00 am again, as did the Gigglemeister. And then we crafted.

Also, Sherry at Semicolon has a fun “Guess the Christmas Movie” quote game up. I got all but #8. It’s driving me crazy! (Well, crazier.)

    The crafting sounds great. My girls would make crafts all day if I kept them supplied.

    And please do tell. I am one who nominated you for best new homeschool blog. Have you been blogging longer than your archives indicate?

    Peace to you,

    Renae, Thank you for nominating me! That was very kind. I don’t know why I find it odd. I fit the criteria, time-wise. It just strikes me as odd. But perhaps the overwhelming aroma of cinnamon has addled my brain. I think I’ll move the ornaments to the garage while they dry.

    Odd, very odd. : ) But I nominated you, too. So there. Now I can’t decide whether to vote for the person I nominated or the person who offered me chocolate chip cookies. Hard choice.

    And the whole thing is a lot more fun if you don’t take it too seriously.

    Man, you guys are the best. Chocolate chip cookies, eh? How about virtual pie. My virtual pecan pie rocks. (My real pecan’s pretty tasty too.) Again, I don’t know why I find it odd to be nominated, I just do.

    All the options are overwhelming. I could’ve spent hours checking out all the entries. So I just picked those I already new and were on my bloglines. I’ve been trying to pare down my daily blog reads because life is just too busy. So you ladies make the cut! 😉
