Toxic Humanity

Look out, here comes my soap box. Apparently masculinity is toxic. I know, baby H... I'm confused/ surprised too... I learned this from a razor company. So, I guess beards are right out too? Who knew? I thought they made and sold shaving implements that assist me with my morning ablutions (yes, I used to … Continue reading Toxic Humanity

DIY weekend projects

Our dining room needed some love. Some affordable love. By affordable, I mean mostly free. So, I got out some paint left over from the living room and finally painted as I had intended to 2 years ago when we moved in. Before: After: And then, to update the weird lightswitch covers, we spent about … Continue reading DIY weekend projects

Library Organization

Well, I think I may have a problem... Other than my daughter having the flu, and being quarantined from church last night and this morning- I hung two 43-inch shelves and only freed up one shelf and emptied one box of books...

It's … Continue reading How I keep my Children Healthy

Christianity in the Public Sphere

There has been a wave of controversy (ugh, I can't stand that word, and I know I'm the last to the party on this one) over Lauren Daigle's response in her Ellen interview regarding homosexuality as a sin. Now before I go further, this post is not about Lauren, it's about the Church as the … Continue reading Christianity in the Public Sphere

Winter work

We started the "negative yardage" dance early this year. You know, one step forward, three steps back. We had gotten outside on a warm day last week to clear off some trees and brush, which was excellent and much needed. Except that then my husband ended up getting an outrageous poison ivy rash that was … Continue reading Winter work

Tennessee Senate Bill 15

I happened upon some unsettling news today. Tennessee Senator Richard Briggs introduced Senate Bill 15 which currently reads, "Milk, dairy products- As introduced, prohibits a person who owns a partial interest in a hoofed mammal from using the milk of the animal for the person's personal consumption or other personal use. -Amends TCA Title 53, … Continue reading Tennessee Senate Bill 15
