a peak into my home {phfr}


We’ve been relishing the cooler weather these past few days.

I love it!

I refuse to turn on the heater, even though the house is currently 64 degrees. Jacket up, everyone!

Here are a couple of peaks into my home this week!


Emelie has taught herself how to knit. She found a few lefty knitting videos on youtube and loves it! Pretty, yes? Do you knit? Have any good resources to share with a newby?

We’re going media free (more on that another day) during the school week, and after a few days of torture, the children have turned out to be quite pleasant to be around. Like, playing with toys and stuff. Crazy, I know!!

My little girls pulled out a bunch of old blocks and our passionately (but poorly) painted peg people to create this happy little world.

And there you see the state of my lovely carpet. Yep. We actually LIVE here. And our carpet knows it!



Colleen has taken to sleeping in our bed. (We’re very thankful that we upgraded to a king-size last year) If we don’t let her in when she goes to sleep, she shows up in the middle of the night. And sleeps sideways. And grinds her teeth. And kicks me in the side. All. Night. Long.

But, we think she’s cute, so we’ll keep her.

Here, she is reading ‘Dick and Jane’ to “Bunny” and her stick-horse “Scarlet”, who sometimes sleeps with us, too. Fun times.

Frost! Beautiful frost, covering our lawn, our backyard toys, our cars, and the lovely turk’s cap in my garden.

I snapped these before the sun got to its melting.


What do you love about the coming of the cold!?

    Over here from PHFR. You have a lovely blog. This is the second post I’ve seen regarding Thomas Peters. I hadn’t ever heard of him before, and now twice in one day. The social media day is working! Off to go read and support where I can.
