Nothing is perfect this side of Heaven. That’s why we have dust and cobwebs, back aches, lost library books, and challenging parenting issues. It can all draw us closer to God (true perfection!) and help us recognize our need for His strength. We also know that even with all the crazy and frustrating aspects of life, there is also a lot of joy. Hey, if we can’t laugh at our spilled buttermilk…
As we focus this week on remembering that Homemaking is Fun, I want to encourage you with some posts from the archives.
Let’s begin with a few lessons I’ve learned about dealing with some of those less than ideal situations:
~ My best lesson from Grandma…Every Good Cook Burns Herself Sometimes
~ Best (ha!) sleep-over breakfast ever…The Day I Forgot To Sift the Popcorn Out of the Waffle Mix
~ Ugh, picky children!…I Can Now Accommodate Picky Muffin Eaters and Mix and Match Oatmeal Bars
Now let’s talk to all of you who don’t love to cook:
~ This one speaks for itself…So, You Don’t Like to Cook?
~ Donuts, again?…Start the Day With a Healthy Breakfast
~ My favorite “I don’t feel like cooking” breakfast…Instant Oatmeal in a Jar
And we’ll wrap it up by talking about ways to save money:
~ Freezer meals rock…Loads of Make-Ahead-Meal posts
~ This is a HOT deal right now!…Grab Your Free $10 For Whole Food Groceries
~ Our favorite whole food meals that cost about $1 per plate…Dollar Menu Recipes
Can I participate if I don’t have a Facebook account?
You’ll be able to hang out there and read the discussions, but without an account, you won’t be able to leave comments or sign up for giveaways. BUT, most of the same giveaways will be featured here throughout the day tomorrow, just to give non-facebookers a chance to win too!
How exciting! Thank you.

Would love the opportunity to win the great give away from Paula’s Bread – 3 SS Baking Pans!
My mom used stainless steel cookie sheets when I was growing up. We loved them, and I would love some!
I plan to attend the party as long as my family doesn’t have other plans for me:)
I love the stainless steel bake ware. I believe my Grandmother had it and loved it. Brings back good memories.
Thank you for this reminder to laugh and be JOYful! I spilled beans and bean water EVERYWHERE last night at 11:45 when I was finally putting the beans in the freezer!! I didn’t laugh – was just really FRUSTRATED. You are so right – we have to be able to laugh at those moments, right? ;)
