Protecting Our Kids *W/ Update

Yesterday I was offered the opportunity to guest post over the The Wondering Brain with the wonderful Jessica Dy. I have included a bit of an update from the original, marked by an asterisk below.

Protecting our kids is a full-time job in today's society, with threats around every corner. As the mother of three, ranging in ages from 10 to 19, I know that the internet is a huge draw for kids nowadays. My kids, like most, know almost all there is to know about online technology. There…

Books...An Unimaginable Adventure!

Post originally shared as a guest post at The Wondering Brain

Books provide access to an unimaginable adventure. One of my favorite hobbies has always been reading, for as far back as I can remember. As a kid, I spent a lot of time with my grandma, and every week during summer break we would ride our local city bus to our local public library. I would of course make a bee line to the children's section to select my books. I had…

What Is A Blessing?

What is a blessing? Wow, what a loaded question, right? It amazes me to think of the things in my life that I consider to be a blessing. I am sure that it is a list that could vary slightly from some and majorly for others. I have really only even started thinking about and realizing just what I have to be blessed about, in the last maybe ten years. I am not sure if it is something that most kids even consider, and I think if you had asked me at any point during my teen years what blessings…

To My Dear Hubby...Happy Father's Day

I would like to say to my dear hubby...Happy Father's Day! As I write this on Saturday night, so that it will be ready to post for Father's day, I think about how much he always wanted to be a father. During the time when he was married to his first wife, that dream could never be realized, since she could not have any more children. Of course, when he and I got together, I was able to still have kids. Now, while I of course wanted more kids, it was not something that I wanted to jump right…

Catching Up On The Day To Day At Corntassle Cottage...

I have been so busy these last few days, that I am just now catching up on the day to day, so her I offer a few days worth of ramblings. Last Saturday, my bestie, our girls, and I went out to our local farmer's market to see if we could get any fresh goodies. Unfortunately, by the time we arrived, there was not much left, other than some plants and a few Amish Goods. Plants I don't need at this point, but I happily grabbed several different jellies, since the hubby commented when we made our…

A Father's Day Tribute...Of Sorts

I have noticed all of the post's lately about the upcoming Father's day and of course that comes with a Father's day tribute. Father's day, is  really a day that I don't give a whole lot of thought to. Now that is not to say that I don't cook dinner for the hubby, and get him stuff from the kids, and maybe even a card from me. But otherwise, I don't really give it a lot of thought. This will probably be a hard post to write, only because it will be rather matter of fact, so here goes.…

Just Keep Going...

I swear sometimes I totally feel like the Energizer Bunny and I have to just keep going and going and going. LOL! The other night, as the rest of the house was in bed and it was just before one o'clock in the morning, I was sitting here at my computer with my headphones in and the melodic voice of Myles Kennedy blaring in my ears accompanied by either the guys in Alter Bridge or Slash and The Conspirators, finally with a few moments to wind down from the last few days. There is nothing…

Holiday Weekend at Corntassle Cottage...

Well this holiday weekend at Corntassle Cottage was filled with various adventures. Most of the weekend was wrought with storms, and some of them included heavy rain and wind. We even had a few branches blown down onto the neighbor's house. Luckily they were not large enough to cause any real damage, just a scrap on the siding and a dent in the A/C casing, for which I am thoroughly grateful. We even managed to be able to grill out steak's for dinner on Monday evening; there is nothing better…

The Usual Chaos At Corntassle Cottage!

You would think that by now I would be used to the usual chaos at Corntassle Cottage; unfortunately, I am not much of one for chaos...then again I think I could get extremely bored without it! Though I suppose with a hubby and three, well actually four children I can't forget my son from another mother, chaos is a package deal. LOL! Each of them brings their own special brand of chaos into the family. Three of the four males are of course teens, 13, 19, 20, and there are days that they seem…

A Letter From Lil Miss

Well, yesterday I received a letter from Lil Miss, during her Language lesson, as a small bit of bonus work. Now, I did not even know that she was doing so, but we have been trying to work on her handwriting. Also, she has been working on comma's and punctuation in her Language "class". This is the rottenest lil monster and the sweetest lil angel, all wrapped into one, and I love her with all of my heart. The following letter was written and copied almost word for word...the only thing that…

Sanskrit: Mother Of All European Languages

Sanskrit meaning ‘cultured’ or ‘refined’ is believed to be the oldest and most systematic language in the world. The vastness and versatility of this Indian classical language can be endorsed by the fact that the various forms of earth can be described in as many as 65 words, water in 67 words and rainfall in over 250 words. Most ancient literary, religious, or philosophical documents of the Indian…
