This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness…

Thank you for those who prayed for my mom. She still feels really dizzy, but her stitches and burns are healing, and she feels better a little bit everyday.

I love these animal masks, obviously, they’d be good for Halloween, but I’m imagining them as props for homeschooling when we do storytelling.

Love these overall flares, but I want to find a vintage pair. This is a cute railroad stripe one, but I prefer just a darker denim.

Wish my BFF and I had these leather jackets to rock together.

I want to eat this for dinner.

This little girl dress would make a fun Halloween costume. Maybe just make a cone for a headpiece and it’s another way to do the ice cream cone costume.

I’ve been trying to wake up 4:30am and it’s going well so far. I like the early rising time; it gives me a chance to read, pray, and then take care of emails or other things I need to get to. Once Ben wakes up at around 6am, we both work out together. With homeschooling, keeping up with the business side of the blog often gets thrown to the wayside, and so I get behind in emails. I’m trying to get better at keeping up, I also have a little project I’m working on that I want to make time for, so I’m testing out an earlier bedtime and rising time to see how it helps. Previously, I’d wake up between 530, while it doesn’t sound like that much of a difference, it does help.

We had a game night with some friends and it was so much fun. I love seeing how people’s personalities come out when it comes to something competitive.

Happy weekend! Since the girls and I have been spending time at my parents’ house this week, and Ben worked late a couple nights, we haven’t spent any family time together, so today is just for that and catching up on household chores.

    I get up early too, to have prayer time and bible reading, usually around 5-5.30 but I think I might need to get up closer to 5 now as the time goes by too quickly and then I’m rushing for work. I usually exercise after work to get rid of the kinks from the day before I get into life at home. My kids are older though they do live at home still, I’m making the most of our time together because it won’t be ling until they leave the nest for good. I ways love your weekly learnd and thankfulness posts, it helps with me stepping back and approximately all I have whilst I have it. You have a beautiful family Rubyellen and I love where your heart is with them and your transparency with life. Have a fabulous weekend. Greetings from Australia x

      Yes, that morning quiet time does pass so quickly. I’m always feeling I need to wake up even earlier and I’m already up so early! Thank you so much for your encouraging words too … it really means so much!
