My New Home Office

 I couple weeks ago, I rearranged my home office area. It's where I check my computer, pay bills, plan in my planner, make stickers, plan school etc! It works wonderfully for me now how I have it set up. It's organized and cozy and I love it! I took some pictures to share:

The baby picture below (on my desk) is of Jaxson when he was wee. Now he's 14.5 years old!!

Our electric went out the other day. It was quite warm out and Jaxson, the dogs and I sat out on the porch for a bit. Everyone else was busy that night and didn't get home til a bit later. It came back on around 9:30pm...then went back out again in the wee hours. I must admit...having electric really does spoil us! 

There's Mickey on the porch and Cash out in the yard...(yes...Cash is still ticking! The old boy is closing in on 13, I think! You can see him as a pup HERE.)

Luckily for our family...I love candles and oil we just light 'em up when it gets dark! :)

I hope your week is going well! Chris has been working on siding the dormers in the's such a process! But it's happening...we are so, so close to be done! I can't wait! 

Veggie beef soup in the crock pot for supper last night....and tonight I'm making french toast! What's on the menu at your house? 

We started our homeschool year this past Monday. I can hardly believe Madelyn is done. She is off to work most days. The boys do their schooling in the mornings and then are off to work most afternoons. Seasons of life change so quickly, don't they? 

I gotta's been a busy day and I have more to do but I wanted to pop a few pictures and a post on while I had a chance! I'll share more soon! Happy Wednesday!




  1. Hi ya, Katy!!! Have missed your posts.... How crazy it is to think it wasn't that long ago, truly, that your kiddos were small. And look at them now.....growing into a beautiful young woman and handsome young men. You and Chris are blessed!!!! And I love the office corner!!!! Blessings to you and yours!!!

  2. Hola Katy He estado leyendo tu blog, y quiero decirte que tienes un hermoso espacio por aquí. Hace un tiempo quería hacer un blog para compartir las cosas lindas que Dios ha hecho en mi vida, y para que otros lleguen a Jesús. Y tú me has inspirado a escribir. Has sido un instrumento de Dios, se que al igual que yo , muchas mujeres han encontrado en tus palabras, amor, paz y calidez. Tienes una maravillosa familia, y que Dios les bendiga mucho 😊. (Gracias al traductor puedo leer ).

  3. Hi Katy, I can't tell you how happy I was to see your new posts! I love your cozy updated office - what a pleasant place to gather thoughts, make plans and do some work! I spent this afternoon with my 11 yr old daughter in her room - we cleaned and unpacked her closet. Think we found toys from when she was 3! She said, Oh Mom, I remember playing with this when I was 3! She is sentimental , like her mom - LOL! Our power also went out here in VA about 2 weeeks ago with hurricane Isias effects. Funny you mentioned oil lamps, as I actually thought that would'vebeen great to have on hand when our power went out. I have been teaching myself about how to operate them and the sizes of burners. I am trying to find some vintage ones! Most importantly, you must be so proud of all your children, beautiful, handsome, smart and hard working -- also love to see pix of your charming house and garden. Welcoming as always! Thanks for posting - I know this is a super busy time. Happy new school year! Blessings, Paige

  4. Katy, It is so wonderful reading your posts, your home looks so inviting and the music on your blog is very relaxing. Veggie soup sounds yummy! Our garden has an abundance of this afternoon I made 2 batches of zucchini/apple bread - deLISH! Last week I tried a recipe on Facebook, sliced zucchini prepared as pizza slices - it was ehh - okay.

    Have a blessed week.

  5. It was so good to catch up with our blog after your absence. I am one of your quiet readers. I so admire what you are doing with your children. Your values are so wonderful. Our world is so scary right now. I don't know what people do when they don't know or follow the Lord. I live in Washington State, near Portland, Oregon and believe me it is awful. My kiddos are grown so I haven't had the worry that so many parents have now. Raise them right and things will be right, huh?
    Thanks for sharing.


I am always so grateful to read your comments! I thank you for the time you took to visit and share your thoughts with me. :o)
May you enter as a stranger and leave as a friend!
Warmly, Katy
