Tuesday Coffee Chat

I almost forgot it was Tuesday because we took a little family and friends vacay this weekend to Great Wolf Lodge and that threw me off!

Today's question: What would you do differently if you knew no one would judge you?

First of all, I really don't care if people judge me. Been there done that. And people judge everything anyone does, so my answer today is more about what I would do if I could ...

I would find some little farmhouse for sale with a tiny bit of acreage for a hobby farm and I would move to it. I might have some chickens, a horse to feed apples to and brush, and a teacup piggie. I'd live my life there in solitude enjoying a small garden, books, and a front porch swing. And there I would live out the rest of the days of my life. And I'd do this tomorrow if I had the money.

If someday I disappear, you will know where to start looking for me.


  1. Take me with you!!! LOL
    I like your dream. With all that is going on in this world, I honestly do think I could just move to a log cabin in the woods, grow my own garden, bathe in the stream and be very happy. But I would need books and music. Everything else I think I could do without.
    A teacup piggie!!!! I have to Google that. :)

  2. This sounds like Heaven to me! One of my biggest wishes is to find land way out in the middle of nowhere and have our forever home (until its time for the 4x6 plot), have a garden, our grand-puppies and kitties. Just live a natural, peaceful life.

    I pray this comes true for you! Have a blessed day. :)

  3. Can I come? This is a beautiful idea, really and truly!

Cells ~ It's What's for Dinner

Dawson made edible cells on Friday.

He made an animal cell pizza ...

and a plant cell chocolate chip cookie ...

He reviewed what he's learned about cells the past two weeks, and I had dinner made by someone else. Win, win!!

I am linking up at Science Sunday at Adventures in Mommydom.

Ketogenic + Restless Legs = Insomnia ... Um, No!

Okay, I have been eating ketogenic for five days now. I have gotten through the carb detox headaches and have settled into a macro plan of 5% carbs (no grains), 20% protein, 75% fat.

The upside is that I like the idea of limiting my body of all of the glucose which will help my minor health conditions.

But there are definitely downsides!

The first is that I am having a hard time getting in enough fats under the strictures of the diet. Who knew it would be hard to eat fats? The real problem is that the fats I want to eat then include a consumption of protein and/or carbs and then throws off my percentages. Still working on that one.

The bigger issue is that for the past couple of nights I have had trouble sleeping, and I have had restless legs.

Sleeping is one of those things that I do well. I go to bed at the same time every night (for the most part) and get up at the same time each morning. I can fit in a 15-30 minute power nap in the afternoon and have no trouble going to sleep at n…

America: The Story of Us ~ Episode 3: "Westward 1" Lesson Plans

This past summer, when I planned our lessons for this year, I was enthralled with how much information was in Episode 3 ~ Westward. It couldn't be done in just three weeks, as I had intended for each unit. So, I broke Westward up into two separate units: Westward 1 and Westward 2. This week I will provide the lesson plans for Westward 1. We spent three weeks on this part of the unit.

We readThe Captain's Dog by Roland Smith. We read an equal number of pages each day to cover the three-week unit (Suprisingly, Dawson did not enjoy this book as much as I thought he would. With him being such a dog-lover, I thought he would appreciate it more. But it just didn't have enough action for him. You'll find that he's hard to please when it comes to literature. I actually really enjoyed The Captain's Dog and thought it was a great piece of historical fiction.)

We watched the entire Episode 3, did the discussion questions/video quiz for the episode and the vocabulary words…
