Tuesday Highlights : Selling LEGOS on Ebay, Shopping at Ross and Hobby Lobby, A Delightful Dinner and Dessert
Hello everybody! I'm back again today sharing some of the highlights of this beautiful Tuesday. I woke up a little early this morning so I would have extra time to work on taking some photos of a couple of Aaron's Lego sets to sell on Ebay. I'm glad he is able to recoup some of the money that was spent on that hobby over the years because it was expensive. He doesn't build with Legos anymore, instead he's been building a computer. He'll be able to reinvest the money that he earns off of Ebay on computer upgrades. Multiple streams of income baby!
Clint had some appointments to go to today so Syd and I rode along with him so that we could all go to Ross and Hobby Lobby to look for some wall art for the bathroom and bedroom.
Ross did not disappoint!
I am getting this picture of white flowers for the bathroom! I love it! It's going to match perfectly!
There are many things at Hobby Lobby that I would LOVE to buy... with so little money to spend on them. :o) This place is heavenly! Their 40% off sale is speaking my love language. ;o) I will return!
Syd was loving this picture. Mister Rogers!!! It's a beautiful day in this Hobby Lobby!
NOT IN THE MOOOOOOOD
Well hello to you too! :o) This is definitely my happy place!
Well... hours later... from the "farm" to the table... back to reality... it's time to get dinner on the table.
~ meatloaf, baked potato and cauliflower ~
I made a small batch of scotcheroos for dessert.
The new wall art for the bathroom looks GORGEOUS!
Happy Tuesday y'all! FORWARD momentum!
Hello everybody! I hope ya'll are having a great start to the week. I thought I would share this week's meal plan for anyone looking for kid-friendly meal ideas. The breakfast and lunches are geared more toward Sydney, the last school age child we have at home. She's a full blown teenager but she still loves her kid-friendly lunches. I usually eat yogurt and berries for lunch, or salad and some protein, or better yet, leftovers from dinner.
I'm going to go ahead and get breakfast ready, but Syd is going to help me make dinner this evening. She is having turkey bacon, a blueberry bagel with mixed berry cream cheese, along with a side of sliced bananas topped with chopped walnuts.
I'm going to do a similar version of Syd's breakfast only I'll add a pepper ring with one egg, and spread a little butter on the bagel instead of the cream cheese.
Today in science class we started a new chapter on waves and sound. We also got to watch three students give their science project presentations. "All Greased Out" was our favorite presentation because it was a project that involved experimenting and collecting data on french fries from Burger King, Steak & Shake, McDonald's and Wendy's. The results obtained from the experiment were interesting. As it turned out Steak & Shake served the greasiest fries.
Today in health class Miss Burns was teaching a chapter on personal hygiene. It was all about the skin, your protective covering, the largest organ of the body. The layers of the skin - epidermis - dermis - hypodermis. "Be good to your skin. You'll wear it every day for the rest of your life."
Syd volunteered to help me make chicken fajitas for dinner tonight. They are super quick and easy to make. As I was cutting the pepper into strips, I noticed that it looked like it was smiling at me. "Awe Bell No!"
There's my girl! She's throwing sass around like a spicy chili seasoning. :o) She's way more sweet than sassy though.
It's time to saute the onions and peppers.
We set up a little mini salad bar.

Great job Syd! It's delicious!
Happy Monday ya'll! Talk to ya soon!
Good evening everybody! Well today is the big day, Election Day for the U.S. Senate and Public Service Commission runoffs. We middle class, hardworking, country folk down here in Georgia voted today, in person. We don't need politicians spending outrageous amounts of money advertising hogwash at every turn to try to badger, belittle and bully us for our vote. Disgraceful! That's all I'm going to say about that.
Now, back to school.
Today in Bible class we are studying the Divided Kingdom - the division between Israel and Judah. King Solomon certainly experienced a rise to unprecedented heights of personal prosperity and security, only to fall victim to moral weakness and political conflict. So too his kingdom, in the hands of is son Rehoboam, is headed toward disaster. Rehoboam causes rebellion among the people of Israel. Only the tribes of Judah and Benjamin will remain with him while the rest of Israel, all of the northern tribes, will appoint a man by the name of Jeroboam as their king. The division is permanent, and the fall is great. Civil conflict will last for years, as will wars with foreign enemies, who are quick to notice the vulnerability of this once-unified but now-broken people. This reads like the current state of America!
In Algebra class we are learning how to divide monomials. Syd had to take a quiz today.
In English class Mr. Bucy taught a new spelling and vocabulary list, discussed some different Christmas poems and taught 4 steps to writing good descriptions.
In World Geography class Miss Burns was teaching the countries of the Northern Andes - Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia.
We started a new chapter in science class today, Science vs. Evolution.
Key Concepts we'll be studying:
We've been taking walks after school this week. The temperature warms up after lunch into the mid 50's.
Taste test: York Peppermint Pattie vs. my homemade peppermint pattie. The York pattie definitely had that classic, refreshing peppermint taste. Mine didn't have as strong a peppermint taste but mine had more chocolate and the center was creamier. The kids both preferred mine over the York because they like a more mild peppermint tasting pattie with a thicker chocolate coating.
Taco Tuesday Night: Aaron helped me prepare a taco bar for dinner this evening, complete with Mexican Mariachi music. :o) Soft tacos or taco salad... whatever floats your boat.
Both kids helped with the cleanup.
I made a quick trip to Publix for a legal pad and a nice pen for Aaron to take with him on his first day of orientation at McDonald's.
Well, it's been another busy day. I have some laundry to put away and of course I need to get my jammies on!
Happy Tuesday y'all! Talk to ya soon!
