So Long, Farewell....

Alberta, say adeu. 

That's how the song goes, right?

It is time to say good-bye, ciao, Sayonara, Au Revoir, Adios to Life's Sweet Surprises.  I have been debating whether to keep this blog going for a while, since it has been badly neglected. With facebook and my backyard farming blog, I no longer have a need for this blog.

I have a growing passion for living sustainably and living more simply and want to focus my efforts on my backyard farming blog. Please join me over there! I will be posting about our endeavors to eat healthier, live more frugally, and our efforts to expand our backyard farm. 

I want to leave you this quote to think about, it is frightening, but also motivates me to learn as much as I can, I hope it motivates you as well.

"In the latter days the time will come when there will not be enough
doctors to take care of our medical needs and problems, and it will be
necessary for men to honor their priesthood and to be prepared to take
care of the sick; and every woman will have to be a home nurse with a
working knowledge of nursing to meet the need."

 J. Reuben Clark, Jr.; General Conference, 1937

Joy-ography Workshop

Well, the workshop was last weekend and we had an AMAZING time - pictures to come soon. We were really impressed with the group and how quickly they caught on and how much they improved in one day. We knew it would work! You can see their pictures from the day at the Joyography Facebook Page as well as their thoughts.

AND we have been overwhelmed by questions about when the next workshop is going to be so we are ready to announce it! Mark your calendars and reserve a spot for the September 18th Joyography Workshop. We're really excited about it and specific details will be announced in the coming weeks. See you there!

My Mom

I have one of those moms...

You know, one of those amazing moms. The mom that sewed all your clothes until you were 14 and you swore that you would rip your hair out if you heard her say, "oh I could make that for so much cheaper" one more time. The mom that for some reason that you still can't figure out, caught you EVERY time you snuck out of the house. Would sit on your bed and wait for you as you snuck back into your window. I'm sure she just wanted to make sure I had a good time! The kind of mother that no matter how early you had to get up for school, was up before you, had the house clean, was showered, dressed and had breakfast hot and ready for you along with your sack lunch. The mom that would do a dance to the song "Jump" for a church talent show and practiced singing and dancing with her walkman. Oh...and a dance to Abba's song Mama Mia with enormous Hershey Kisses, (get it? Mama Mia, here I go again, my, my, how can I resist you?)

The type of mom that desperately HATES having her picture taken, so it takes you an hour just to find one of her.
One of those moms that would turn on Ann Murray in the kitchen and make you dance with her. The type of mom that no matter how old you are, you can call her crying when you are sick and she always feels bad for you. The kind of mom that flies out a few times a year to see her grandkids. The type of mom that laughs so hard that she cries at a good poop joke. The type of mom that takes her trials and learns from them. The mom that has unshakable faith.

The type of mom that will never tell you what she wants for her birthday, and always says, "I just want obedient children."

I love you mom, have a Happy Birthday!
