Thoughts on how to promote my blog

This year I have started to think about my blog more seriously. I’ve been trying to make my posts more search and SEO friendly, as well as trying to remember to post at least a few times a week. I’ve  spent the past few months thinking about and creating a new look. Nothing drastic but […]

I found the floor in my bedroom!

Yes! I finally finished sorting through all of my crafty “crap” as Super G. calls it. We rearranged the bedroom over a week ago so I could get to my sewing desk and I ran out of energy before finishing. See? So Messy! So it sat… and sat… and got in the way… and made […]

Volcanoes, glasses and life

Pie’s volcano model that I shared with you last Wednesday turned out pretty good! We had fun creating it out of plaster of paris, cardboard, and newspaper. Our school holds a science fair every year, the children don’t compete for prizes or top place, but some teachers do give extra credit for their efforts. They […]

The kitchen in my dreams

I dreamed about a house again the other night. I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it before but I often dream of houses, in my sleep and while daydreaming. One of my favorite things to imagine is of course, the kitchen! In one of my favorite house dreams I find myself living in an old […]

Super Genius – Look What I found Honey!

Super Genius has went insane…. wait… Super G. might be more insane than he was before ;) Just look what he came home with yesterday! This my friends is what apparently happens when a man, or at least my man, has spring fever. Or what I also like to call – “Let’s-see-what-else-I-can-fit-into-the-driveway-itis”. He buys a […]

So far away for her – but soon enough for mom

For some reason it hit me this week that my little girl only has one more year of elementary school after this one lets out. Can you believe that? One more year of being in only two classrooms for the whole day. One more year of cute little kid cubbies to stow her coat in […]

Super Genius explores the dark recesses of the old filing cabinet

Super Genius was digging around in the old filing cabinet and found a tattered and dusty manila envelope today. It looked vaguely familiar… Oh good grief! It’s all of our old film! Fifteen, twelve, ten year old film! I had forgotten all about it it, even though at least once a year Super G. and […]

A post because I’m feeling guilty about not posting

I finally drug my sorry butt to Jazzercise this morning, ya finally! It’s only been what? Almost 2 months! Hibernation. Is. Not. A. Good. Thing. I made it through class but that was almost an hour ago and my legs and fingers are still shaking. I will pay for this later when my legs are […]

Random Ramblings from Me – games & laundry

Hello strangers! December and January seem to be my hibernation months! I’ve been such a slacker lately with both the blog and life. It’s starting to catch up with me since I haven’t even been to Jazzercise since the beginning of December, I miss it… but it’s hard to get back into the swing of […]

My camera died, I have a warranty – now I need help!

I’m glad that Christmas is over. Don’t get me wrong, I love the holidays! This year the flu took the fun out of it for me though. We had some wonderful moments that I didn’t get to capture because my camera flash decided to die on me Christmas day at my mom’s party! I was, […]

Goodbye 2010!

We’re on to a new year again and I hope it’s bigger and better than ever for all of you! I’m not one for resolutions so won’t bore you with any of mine but I do hope to keep A Hen’s Nest full of fun and surprises for you in the months ahead! Enjoy the […]

Merry Christmas!

I meant to do a nice long post about wishing you all a very Merry Christmas but I’ve been sick since Wednesday evening. Blah! Feeling a bit better now and just wanted to wish everyone a wonderful day tomorrow! I hope your Christmas is filled with giggles of children, shouts of glee, ripples of laughter, […]
