Happy (belated) Thanksgiving to you and yours.  I hope your day was blessed beyond all expectations.

I’ve been busy hostessing – baking and mashing and roasting and all the fun things that come when you host family for a few days.  Now that the pies are eaten and the food is put away, I’m sitting down for the first time all day to catch my breath.

In honor of Thanksgiving AND my 15th wedding anniversary, I’m taking a day or two off from blog-land.  I’ll be back Monday (or sooner).

why i love ultimate bundles

I love Ultimate Bundles. Finding out what’s in each bundle (and what all the bonus offers are) is almost like Christmas for me.

You may have missed the Ultimate Christian Bundle, but there’s no excuse to miss the next sale. The Healthy Living Bundle, Homeschooling Bundle, and DIY Bundle sales are only a few months away.

Y’all. I love these bundle sales.  I’ve bought several of them and there is ALWAYS something amazing in them.

(Just to let you know, I love them so much that I’ve joined as an affiliate partner. But even if I wasn’t a partner, I’d be loving this bundle.)

Here’s my top five reasons why I LOVE these bundles:

Musings on crunchiness

When it comes to crunchiness (you know, the whole essential oil, organic foods, alternative medicine thing) I’m never quite sure where I fit in.  Lately, the drama has been about my underarms.

Y’all.  I think I stink.  I’m not entirely sure, and my family members have requested that I refrain from walking up to them and asking “is it still working” as I raise my arm and waft the air past my arm pit.

Um… perhaps I should back up a bit and not start at the end of the story.

I’ve always struggled with armpit “freshness.”

Daring Dictionary Discipline Debut

Today’s writing prompt was found on Pinterest.  It calls for me to pick a random word out of the dictionary and write a story that starts with that word.  It took a lot of discipline to pick the FIRST word.

(Honestly, I didn’t. I knew better. I’d end up picking the best word on the page. So I asked my kids to pick it for me. I have no idea if they cheated or not. Come to think of it, there was a ton of giggling involved. Hmmm…)

The idea is from Sarah Selecky as part of her daily writing prompts email subscription. (At least, that’s what the URL leads to. Since the pin is clearly from that site, it seems like a good guess. I’m not familiar with her blog or email subscription, but it looks pretty cool.)

All week, I’m writing to prompts I found on Pinterest. Most of them are from prompts designed for school-age kids. This one isn’t, but it could be.  If I were in 4th grade I could have fun with this one.

Ready to find out the word my story starts with?
