On Things That Bring Me to a Complete Loss For Words

Words. I’m usually full of them. As I write this post, however, I am entirely lacking in the right ones that will tell you what I want to say. In fact, my usually steady heart now beats frantically with panic at the sheer weight of responsibility hangs heavy over me as I contemplate what is to come… In 3 months time, I will be headed on a plane to the Philippines with a team of bloggers with Compassion International. So many words cloud my thinking and yet […]

I keep telling her to stop losing teeth or she’s going to have to […]

10 Posts I Didn’t Write in 2010

Tonight I’ve been sipping on tea and taking a leisurely stroll through my gorgeous new heirloom seed catalogue… hard to believe that this year is already drawing to a close and that I am beginning to think forward to next spring and summer. It is also stunning to me that another year has flown by here at Keeper of the Home and I am now onto my 4th Christmas of blogging. As you have read posts day in and day out over these past several […]

Book Sale Has Been Extended!

Due to a few technical “bumps” we had at the beginning of the sale and the fact that the response has been so absolutely tremendous, we’ve decided to extend the sale until this Friday! Some of the coupon codes for the other eBooks will be ending this week, but I know that most of them are still good for a couple more days. The sale on my personal eBooks (Healthy Homemaking and Real Food on a Real Budget), though, will be extended completely until late […]
