Since I have yet to see any sign of a man around my blog, I decided to dedicate this last quiz to all my readers!  It’s all about women in Canadian history.  Do you know them?

Make sure to leave your name on the bottom of the post once you’ve taken the quiz.

And check out the other three to make sure you receive your free gift.  This quiz challenge is open until March 31.  You can go back and take all the quizzes until that date.  If your name has not been added to the blog posts by then you will miss out on the free gift!

I will contact everyone the first week of April about their free gift.  If you took the Canadian History quizzes and do not hear from me, please contact me!  I would hate for anyone to miss out because of my oversight.  We’re busy packing up to move so things could get lost, just not on purpose!

Congratulations to all who took the time each week to take the quiz.  If you have any questions about the answers please feel free to contact me.  I love talking Canadian History. =)

Is there still Monday minutes?  YES!  Things have been crazy for the last couple of months with my health and now moving.  I have struggled with getting motivated in writing but I am using the time to re-energize myself with new material.  I am excited to share with you all some new things I’ve been working on that are helping me to keep my focus on what is right: new items for my store (I’ve been busy, just not on here <smile>).

And, yes, we are moving!  It was fast.  Like two weeks fast.  I am looking forward to sharing all about our new home that we are renting (lots of outside space!!!!).  The Lord has truly blessed us.  When I’m tempted to grumble and complain all I have to do is start listing all the ways God has poured blessings on us in the last two months and that temptation slowly fades away.  I am so thankful for health, for getting to hear my husband preach on Wednesday night, for our pastor being healthy enough to be back out yesterday for services, and for the great messages we heard from him!  If I started to share them all this post would last forever.

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday and make sure you don’t forget about the Canadian History quizzes.  You still have time to go back and take the other three!  If you are looking for any resources on Canadian history feel free to contact me.  In the meantime, you can check out one of my favorite blogs for all things homeschool-related:  The Canadian Homeschooler (and for Canadian history specifically click on the link titled: Social Studies)

Monday Minutes

Welcome to December!

 

I am very excited about this month.  Are you?  It marks the end to another year.  One more month and I will have been writing on this blog for a WHOLE YEAR!  Yes, I started this blog January 1st, 2013.  It marks a milestone for me and I am more than a little excited.  I’m hoping to bring you a wonderful giveaway to mark this anniversary…so make sure to stay with me.

Recap November

What happened in November?  Thinking back I’m having trouble remembering a lot of it.  Wow…I must be REALLY tired.  No, I remember.   I started out the month at a singsperation at friend’s church.  We stayed up till 12:30 (well, we were up a lot later, lol) singing and just enjoying some good, old-fashioned music.  We had so much fun!

The next two weekends I spent working markets.  I started a new line this year of natural products including lip balms, whipped lotions, solid lotion bars, and sugar scrubs (you can find these for sale in my Etsy store!).  I made some new friends and I’m looking forward to getting to know some of them better.

Then we were back at our friend’s in the valley for a weekend sleep-over!  I enjoyed visiting with the ladies at her church on Saturday morning and then came home in the midst of a snow storm Sunday afternoon.   We had such a good time, enjoyed lots of good food, and had some fun crafting together (she made Little Miss the most adorable hair bows!).

This last weekend Little Man got to attend a birthday party with his Auntie who came for a visit.  We enjoyed lunch together on Sunday and she took some amazing pictures of the family in the afternoon (with lots of wonderful snowflakes making their appearance).  I can’t wait to share those pictures with everyone.  I only got to see a couple of the ones she took but they were GOOD!

We had three guest posters on here, talking about being a blessing to others.  I really enjoyed their posts and I hope they encouraged you as well and gave you some ideas on how you can be a blessing to those around you, especially those who are struggling with things in their lives.

I also brought you a TON of book reviews.  I know, there were a lot.  I don’t get as much time to read anymore so it takes me a while to get through books.  I banned myself from reviewing any more until I got through the stack I had.  And, guess what ?  I did!  Yeah!   Well, I have one more to bring you this month.  It’s one book review that you won’t want to miss!

Coming Up…

I’m bringing some more posts in our “Make Me a Blessing” series.  This month I’ll be sharing some practical lists of things you can do to bless people, especially during this season of giving.

Other than that I think this blog is going to be pretty quiet.  I’m planning on doing lots with Little Man and I have church activities and family fellowships to plan and enjoy.  I hope you all enjoy this season and take time to remember what it’s all about.

Happy Monday, Everyone!

Monday Minutes

Nov 11

I’m not sure where this picture came from – but I think it’s great!  There are so many things we can teach our children and to honour Remembrance Day is one of those things.   I am so thankful for the men and women who have fought for my country, for MY freedom.  I cannot begin to express how much their sacrifice means to me.  I can only hope that my children will be able to grasp the concept of what the deaths of countless Canadians in the past century has done for them.

We enjoyed a great day in church yesterday.  I remember last year this time.  November 11th fell on a Sunday. We were able to enjoy a moment of silence with our entire church family.  I enjoyed that time of remembrance.

Please don’t forget to take a moment.  At 11 o’clock.  To remember those who have fought to allow us to have this time.  Wear your red poppy proudly and when you see a vetern, make sure you stop and thank them.

Happy Monday All!
