HSMJ the scales ...

In my life this week in the past two weeks…
Grrr I'm feeling a little frustrated with Pinterest's latest update preventing me from pinning more than 15 pins from the web at a sitting.  It's so annoying!
I have recently started investigating The Trim Healthy Mama and so far both Paul and I are impressed with how satisfying the meals are.  I have been inspired by my mother ... This week Sir N has been sampling THM foods with me.  He has been tasting my Singing Canary drinks I have been making each day.  I am trying to tweak it to my personal taste ...
I am also enjoying the photographs and video's that are being shared on the Prince William and Kate Facebook page.

In our home school this week…
  • Sir N so enjoyed that Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle that we are off to the library to borrow another book in the series.
  • He is also enjoying The Usborne Time Traveler so much so that he can't wait for us to go to Rome!
  • I'm so enjoying listening to him read I Can Read It! Book 2 to me.  
  • Today Sir N and I are going to the library to get some books to continue our Expedition Earth journey.  He loves traveling the world.
  • This week we have been working through triple digit subtraction with borrowing.
Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…
I am inspired by…
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
  • Tennis
  • A play date with a friend.
  • Driving teenagers around to appointments all week ...
  • We went to the bank and opened a savings account for Sir N.  So much fun.  Sir N wants to save for a digital camera that has a good zoom lens.
My favourite thing this week was…
  • Climbing on the scales and finally seeing the numbers go in the right direction.  I've been watching my Mom and sister in law start on The Trim Healthy Mam so I started using some of their recipes last week.  (More of my story later ...)
  • I'm so proud of my daughter she has been saving up to purchase a car and finally met her goals.  She went to pay and pick up a beautiful Nissan Micra on Wednesday.
What’s working/not working for us…
  • Earlier bed times ...sometimes
Things I’m working on…
On my bedside table
  • Trim Healthy Mama
  • At home in Dogwood Mudhole by Franklin Sanders. I'm enjoying this book. Beautifully written.
  • The Fourth Kingdom really enjoyed this book.  Great read.  I'm even more pleased that I had the sequel to jump straight into.
  • The sequel to The Fourth Kingdom The Force. This book is a sit on the edge of your chair thriller. Loved every minitute of this read. Challenging topics and thought provoking information
In Bloggy world I’m reading…
I’m cooking…
  • Bread in a Mug
  • Singing Canary - definitely trying to tweak this so it tastes better!  I like the positive health benefits and it's better than the amount of tea I normally consume but I need to tweak it to be a little more sweet.
  • Cheesecake Really like this.  Will be adding this to our diet regularly.
On Pinterest I found...
I’m grateful for…
  • People who are willing to talk about things truthfully, that are not worried about political correctness.  I really enjoyed what Tim Elmore had to say in this article: How Adults are Stealing Ambition From Kids.

    Not sure what tip or advice you found helpful but I am honoured to make your list:) As always I've find these posts so interesting and have followed most of your links:)

    1. :) love you links and insight Erin. Good to see you enjoy the reading :)

  2. We read many of the Miss Piggle Wiggle books last year and loved them! Thanks for all of the reading recommendations in bloggy land, too! Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Mary unfortunately there is only one book available at the library. Sir N loves the funny names of the families :) Blessings to you too and your welcome

  3. I'm following Trim Healthy Mama too (down 10 pounds and I'm not even "fully" on plan yet).

    Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle was a big hit with my daughter as well (and I remember reading it when I was a kid!)

    1. Never read Mrs Piggle-Wiggle before but I do confess I enjoyed it too :) I will be sharing about Trim Healthy Mama on Monday. Still not fully on plan yet either ...
