ceiling fans in winter

I needed this info so thought y’all might like it too.

“During the summer you want the fan to blow air straight down, so your ceiling fan needs to run in a counter clockwise direction (as you look up at it). The warmer it is, the higher the speed should be. During the winter, your fan should run at a low speed in a clockwise direction.” Read the more detailed answer below to really understand this answer as there are many exceptions to this rule.

Monday Monday Nov 17th

I used to do this weekly thing that would start out by sharing what was going around me, I think I will hunt it up post it again today. It reminds us to slow down and appreciate things. Watch for it, called the Simple Woman’s Daybook,

I may change the name but it will have this picture, which I may revise a bit.

So what is it like at your house this morning? We are supposed to have dreadful weather today.

Only 6 more Mondays  after this one until a new year. Are you ready?


Now onto this week.

I have 1 more book coming up as the homeschoolfreebieoftheday.com specials. This one about making Family Memories. Because your children will remember. I sure hope you enjoyed last weeks free offering.

Coming up this week ….

Did you notice my

Lilla Rose Turkey Trot

First Thanksgiving, my favorite time of year and my favorite Holiday that celebrates something real, remembering God’s goodness and thanking Him for it. I would love to hear how you celebrate Thanksgiving.

I have some more good articles coming up also. stay tuned.


Lilla Rose Turkey Trot

If you have been itching to order a couple items, or have a friend who wants to order a couple items, and you aren’t really sure you want to have a party, but you would just love to get some rewards, I have the opportunity for you. My Turkey Trot. Kind of a mini party with a chance to win some cash. :) AND some hostess rewards.

Holiday homeschool freebie on Friday

This is one of my all time favorites and it will be featured as the Homeschool Freebie of the Day on Friday,

I encourage you to check them out now and subscribe to their notices

Making The Holidays Family Friendly

The Holidays are supposed to be all about celebrating with the folks you love, yet all too often the focus is on the preparations instead of the people and the children especially seem to get lost in the shuffle. If holidays are stressful to you, or you come to the end of the day wondering where and what your children were doing all day, this book is for you. It is a reminder of why we celebrate, and how to celebrate in a more family-friendly way. Memories are made at every holiday, are they good ones or bad ones? Learn how to make them good ones for everyone.
From the introduction …
“When I was growing up holidays were always disappointing. My parents both worked a lot of hours and although I had a safe and loving upbringing I do regret that I was left alone too much. Mine were wonderful parents but back in those days pursuing the American dream was an a idol to many parents. Then came the holidays and the thought of parents with time for their families seemed possible, but ended up being an unrealistic dream. Parents then spent too much time on the holiday preparations themselves and still neglected their children. Yet all the while they proclaimed that “Holidays are for the children”. for me holidays never lived up to my expectations, and I was always disappointed, and discouraged.”
From Planning a big meal …
“One more thing on planning a big meal, don’t be afraid to create some new traditions. Have you ever taken a poll in your family as to what the favorites are? Are you guilty of just doing the same thing every year without even knowing if anyone likes it? Ask them. Yes all of them. Sit down and have a family discussion including young and old. Ask what is the most meaningful part of the big family holiday meal. You may be surprised. You may want to start some new traditions. You make want to honor some old ones that you thought weren’t important anymore, or maybe got dropped along the years. You may hear some family history and be able to include something that symbolizes a past generation tradition. You’ll never know if you don’t ask. ”
There are tips throughout the book such as ….
Family friendly tip– bring a rocking chair in the kitchen. It makes a great place for an older woman to sit or a place to rock an overloaded little one. There are 16 chapters, 50 pages,  and several pages of extras to bless you!

Price: $4.95

Happy Monday!!

Here we are again, I love Mondays :) .

New week, new to to do list, new goals. What are yours? And  has dawned on you yet how close to the end of the year we are? 7 more Mondays  after this one.

MondayI often like to look back at last years goals and plans and see how things shaped up. I have never ever had a time when God did not surprise me with his goodness. He is always above and beyond what I think He can be. If that doesn’t ring true in your life I humbly suggest maybe He isn’t allowed to do as He pleases in your life. Surrender to Him, not just with some words but with your heart. Give it all. You will be amazed.

Now onto this week.

I have 2 books coming up as the homeschoolfreebieoftheday.com specials. One this coming Friday and the other next Friday. I recommend you go on over and enroll as their subscriber for free today. There are plenty of things you will not want to miss. My book for this week was actually written 6 years ago, but has been updated and is more relevant now than ever. The one for next week is new and after being released there will be on Amazon. Both are about family, surprising, huh?
