My last project of 2008…..I think.

by Edie Wadsworth on December 31, 2008

We jaunted off to Goodwill this morning where the after Christmas sales were hoppin’.  I could be exaggerating but we did find this old door which was 1/2 off.   It was 5. 48 with tax!  This ‘studio table redo’, as Ms. Pink and Polka Dot called it , was a quick and rewarding project. […]

Let the Games Begin……I own Resolutions.

by Edie Wadsworth on December 30, 2008

The big clean-out/take-down has begun.  It’s 9p and the only thing I can be sure of is that  the American Girl accessories now have their very own slighty-used storage container.  What a blessed gift to find an purse belonging to ‘Kit’ only to say to my daughter, “You know exactly where this goes, don’t you?” […]

New Year’s Resolutions. Where optimism reigns.

by Edie Wadsworth on December 28, 2008

It’s getting dangerously close to January 1.  The day we all collectively sign on the dotted line of those New Years resolutions we intend to make.  I’ve always been a ‘resolutions’ kind of a girl.  I love fresh starts, new beginnings, second chances.  And reading Jen’s post inspired me to write about the things I […]

Family Tradition

by Edie Wadsworth on December 26, 2008

My family gathered for the last hurrah! last night and feasted on steak and shrimp.  It was a delightful dinner and I’m pretty sure I pulled some ab muscles laughing so hard.  I literally fell onto the floor laughing at one point…..not to be confused with me literally falling out of the bed last night…(thanks […]

Feast your eyes on the sweetest little bundle of furry goodness  you have ever seen. I drove to Ashville at 6a this morning and became the proud owner of an English Golden Retriever.  The cutest most lovable one that has ever existed.  I’m sure of it.….and spent the rest of the day in the midst of […]

Little love gifts……

by Edie Wadsworth on December 22, 2008

I’ve been assembling a few ‘love’ gifts for some special people in our lives and thought I’d show them to you. Back in May, the kids and I picked strawberries and made homeade jam.  And as of late I’ve been a sour dough bread ‘machine’……so naturally homeade bread and jam makes the perfect ‘love’ gift.I […]

The Hidden God……

by Edie Wadsworth on December 21, 2008

I’ve been reading a lot about the topic Christless christianity and how our inborn sinful nature is always bent towards self. We are by nature self-centered, self-focused and our perspective is always self oriented and is always distorted. Man’s natural theology is, in Lutheran circles, called a theology of glory. The rich man and Lazarus […]

The One I Love………

by Edie Wadsworth on December 17, 2008

Remember the song “The One I love” by David Gray?  Well I rediscovered the song through Country Girl’s playlist and there’s something about it that I just love.  I listened to it 473 times. Who am I kidding? I belted it out real loud 473 times while driving in my car. My children will certainly […]

Beam me up, Stevie……..

by Edie Wadsworth on December 15, 2008

My life has changed so dramatically over the past two years that it’s hardly believable that it’s the same person living in my skin. The only way I can be absolutely sure that it is indeed me is by the fact I still charge into, say,  the dining room at lightning speed with a definite […]

Here at our homeschool, we’re following a strict curriculum.  Today’s goal:  Bake Grandma Evadne’s sugar cookie recipe in the shape of stars….and ice them.  Recite G.K. Chesterton’s A Christmas Carol.  Make snowflakes while dancing to “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause”. Punishment awaits those who do not fully participate!   You must try this recipe. […]

Southern Women 101………

by Edie Wadsworth on December 12, 2008

Things you should know about southern women: 1. We love all things ‘hair’—’fixin’ our hair, dyin’ our hair, teasin’ our hair—-you get my drift. 2. We have two commandments: ~ thou shalt not go out in public without lip gloss and mascara ~ thou shalt surely have cute hair. Don’t mess with Texas. Or Tennessee. […]
