You know those days where you feel like you can’t accomplish anything because there is so much to do? I am totally in that funk right now. I have so many things that I need to do and that I want to do, that I have like five to do lists going. I tried to do a longer range and a shorter range…
o be fair, I feel a little like I cheated with my two completed books of the year as they are far shorter and simpler than my normal reading. But, I justify it by the fact that I not only read them, but I am also guiding students reading through them, so there is an awful lot of analysis of character, inference, predictions, etc.
OK, so some of us are last minute shoppers for those hard-to-shop-for people. This year it’s even more challenging as we must be socially distant. Here is my solution: subscription boxes!
We can’t be together for the holidays, but why not a gift they keep receiving each month, or every other month, or maybe just once. Order these now, and the wrapping and shipping is even done for you!
It’s not every year that we suffer a pandemic, and had we known back in the spring how the year would pan out, I would have planned some things differently. Instead, I am content at how well my family is weathering the storm.
A gift from Second Time Around Homestead -buy for others, receive a gift for you!
Psst, it’s a birthday secret!
We’re quickly rushing out of October into November. The calendar may say we’re in the middle of fall, but realistically (as the snow falls every few days) we’re at the end of autumn. Time for our seasonal accountability. Autumn is filled with a lot of tasks that happen every year for us regardless of whether we say we are homesteaders or not.
