I’m still trying to do most of my online reading on the weekend – here’s some of the places I’ve visited and enjoyed.

As you will know I’ve joined in the 31 days in October series with Living a Family Life.  I’ve been trying to read others as well.  Two  series I’m enjoying but will have to come back to at a later date to really absorb what they are saying are:

 

I’m passing this 31 days of cheap and easy 2×4 projects onto my husband for ideas for him to make with Daniel – maybe something for Christmas?

 

Have you heard the term Eat my frog:  It is the one thing you baulk at, that you procrastinate with.  My frog at the moment is drinking water – I don’t drink enough.  So I’ve set the goal – one waterbottle before a hot drink!  This is working really well.  What is your frog?

 

I want to be a professional – not a professional writer, or have a professional career but I want to be a professional woman – a woman of integrity – read more about this idea from Sarah Mae

 

To be teachable.  I really enjoy Elisa’s blog.  This post would be a great family discussion today except I’m sick and there will be no family breakfast – but I’ll earmark this for later on.  (Just re-read this, it doesn’t sound quite right  – the kids will get breakfast, we just won’t sit down together and have conversation! LOL)

 

Jessicalynette is doing a series on 31 days of communicating with our children – and this week wrote:  Listen to them.  My only added thought – coming from our family life this week – is that we also need to listen to their body language – they communicate to us in so many ways – we do need to be alert and ready to listen.

 

31 days to an Organized Lifestyle – Get rid of that Crud!   Today I’m going to take photos of all the bits and pieces that either don’t have a home, or should be put back in that home – it will provide a visual list to get those areas sorted.  I’ll use these photos to remind me of little extra chores the kids can do through the week too.

 

Do you menu plan?  This week I wrote up 4 menus based on what each of my kids need to learn in the kitchen – this will be the basis of our menu plans for the next three months.  Each of my kids spend a week helping in the kitchen which includes cooking a good portion of the evening meals.

 

Be Productive in 5 minutes.  Great reminder.    Love this – and the link to 55 ideas of what can be achieved in 5 minutes.  My top 5 are:

  1. Make a dentist appointment
  2. Tackle a draw in my bedroom
  3. Clear out my email inbox – it is only 2 weeks backlog so I can do it in 5
  4. Declutter my desk (though I really doubt this can be finished in 5 minutes – I could do 5 minute spurts)
  5. Declutter my desktop

And I only got to #38 on this list – so many ideas!

 

I love this lady’s work and her 31 days of Scripture art is inspiring too.  Not sure if I will get to the doodling though it is something the girls and I have talked a bit about – but I am inspired to add some of her themes to our Faithbook.
