Prove your promises and most of all let love guide your life

I still see character as how you treat those who can d nothing for you

nurture your voices for kindness en compassion baby, then your heart for love

I can hear the fire connection in your heart even when you’re quiet

Just trust yourself coz even your shadow hides when you’re in darkness

Intelligence pulls me to the core en the best medicine is love

***This is the part where you insist, love loves you.-mayor5***

Volunteer Gift: Painted Pots

Great gift idea

Texas Craft House

I have been combing Pinterest for the perfect thank you gifts for my parent volunteers. I teach kindergarten and I couldn’t get through my year without the help of my parent volunteers. I wanted something that they would keep, reuse, andremind the parents of the kids and classroom for weeks to come. This idea I found and pinned to my Classroom Giftspinterest board where I collect ideas for parents, other teachers, and gifts to students.

Effective Leadership

Trees of Transition

“The leader with the most connections wins!”

-Chris Hogan

When we know our leader hears, respects, and esteems us, we will do almost anything for them. Building trust with those we work with takes time and care, but when we make that investment, huge gains can come through working together in a unified way.
Choose to trust and connect.

Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes with Strawberry Buttercream

Homan at Home

Strawberry Cream Cheese Cupcakes with Strawberry Buttercream

It’s almost been two years since Dustin and I got married. It was a pretty cool day, and these cupcakes had a cameo appearance. My mom and I made 8 dozen cupcakes to compliment the cake we made. My colors were pink and green, so we went with Strawberry Cheesecake, Lemon Raspberry, Key Lime, and Red Velvet (this is Dustin’s favorite flavor). My favorite were the strawberry ones. They were lighter than the others, and had a nice summery flavor.

June Seasonal Food


June Seasonal Food | ecogreenlove

Get choosing, cooking and storing tips from the produce that is getting out of season here

“If ever there were a time of year when it just feels right to eat well, June is it. The air is sweet and warm and there are oodles of healthy options in the grocery store (or, if you’re lucky, the local farm stand) that can help keep you energized through the long summer days.

Strawberries are summer’s stand-out sensation, but it’s just not tennis without the rest of the seasonal berries. Broad beans, tomatoes and fresh peas are also unmissable in June.”

Just a note: be aware that this is a general guide, always check on your local farm or market what is in season right now and buy it fresh locally grown whenever possible. The produce may be harvested or grown in different times of the year, it all depends on the region and climate.

When produce is…

Guacamole Dip

I love guacamole dip… Will have to try

Noemi's Koffee Klatch


I am so glad that summer is here!  Because that means BBQing time and parties outside.  I “love love” making Guacamole dip and homemade tortilla chips any chance I get and for no reason at all.  This delicious dip and tortilla chips is so easy to make.   The dip is so creamy, zesty and packed with flavor.

Be Not Afraid



Be not afraid when in darkness,

For you shall see the light,

A light that is everlasting,

For it burns so very bright.


It burns when your heart is heavy,

It shines when you have lost all hope,

When your life has lost its sparkle,

At a time when you just can’t cope.


Be not afraid when in darkness,

For God will show you the way,

He will lift the gloom that surrounds you,

And keep all trouble at bay.


So next time you feel sad and lonely,

When you feel you have no way to turn,

Think of the glorious spirit that surrounds you,

Switch on the light let it burn.


Be not afraid when in darkness,

Let God be your partner and guide,

Accept the love he sends to protect you,

Hold his hand, as he walks by your side.


Let him…

Paper Work

This is so true… but somehow I get some joy out of paper… I can’t explain it!

DIY with Kathy!


Whoever invented paperwork should be shot. Every month at least one  whole day is wasted filing out paperwork – there are bills to pay, accounting books to keep, paperwork to be filled out and sent away, appointments to make, and entry logs to be filled out.

Computers are supposed to make things easier but even they need to be updated, scanned for virus,etc, and files cleaned up and organized on a regular basic.All this can easily take a whole day to complete and if you have a super slow internet connection or computer it can take even longer.


I use both computer and old-fashion paper for my records – mainly because I get impatience with waiting for the computer to fire up and with paper I can work on the run. That was a good thing  because today I got a lot done riding “shotgun” to Franklin. We had a…

Just One Night

A note about me… written by someone else!

daily dose of reality

if the world were to end tomorrow, what would you do with your remaining time on earth?


I am sure that in the moment my mind would change and not go with my plan because I would hope that I would be spontaneous. In my daily life I try to strive for spontaneity but rarely pull it off. I like to plan ahead and follow rules, so in my last moments on Earth I would hope that I could finally achieve being spontaneous.

I would likely see or talk to loved ones to begin with and then selfishly spend the rest of the day doing something I love. I would hope that I would go somewhere new. The feeling you get when you get in the car and just drive, I would try to replicate that with my remaining time. I would enjoy great food and drink, especially stopping…

DIY: T-Shirt Blanket

When I was a drill instructor for Navy Officer Candidates School, I collected a lot of graduation t-shirts. Now I am looking for a way to display them. Found it…

The Shweet Design

Are you like me where you have so many T-shirts you just don’t know what to do with them?  Or perhaps they all share some special importance to you that prevents you from donating them?  Well, welcome to the club.  I realized that most of my T-shirts were from my high school days, and they were starting to wear out, but the last thing I wanted to do was throw them out!  So what do you do?  I decided to make a T-shirt Blanket!

This craft is very personal and gives your shirts a new purpose rather than just sitting in your closet.  I thought long and hard about my blanket, and each one is different.  I knew I wanted a large blanket, almost comforter, for my Queen bed.  Here is a chart for all types of bed sizes for mattresses, sheets and comforters for your reference.  I had…
