Well, it's a great week for Mission Tortillas and Chips!! Stock up if you like them - you can freeze the tortillas. Also, don't forget to check out Superstition Ranch Market for the best prices in produce on Main Street between Greenfield and Higley. I got artichokes last week 3/$1!! And much more!

Happy Grocery Shopping!

I'm Back!!!

Now that things have begun to settle down and I am feeling more normal (after moving, etc.), I am ready to get back to blogging. So look for the regular weekly grocery helps, as well as other posts about family life, homeschooling, cooking and frugal living.

And let me just say again - I LOVE MY NEW HOUSE!!! It is such a huge blessing and we are feeling very "at home" here!

Our New Home

Well, we are all moved and working on unpacking and settling into our new home!! I really like it and God has blessed us SO very much in so many little ways through all of this. Our home is very comfortable for us and the more time I spend here, the more I like it! I am hoping to get back on my regular posting in the next week or so, but just wanted to update you all on the fact that we have actually closed on our home, moved and are now in the unpacking process.

We are also beginning school again after about a month sabbatical, so that will be interesting:-) It is hard to get back into routines, but we are starting out slowly (like after summer break) and working into it. Perhaps I might need to add a field trip or something fun this week just to help with the transition.Thanks for all your prayers and thoughts during this time of stress, frustrations and transitions. God is faithful, as always! Why do we default to worry when He has ALWAYS taken care of us and provided for everything we have need of in our lives? He has a perfect track record - I wish I could just learn to lean on Him always and trust in Him in every little thing.

Big Baking Day

Since we are still waiting to close on our home (any day now:-), I decided to do a big baking day today to get things stocked up so I don't have to worry about it for the next week or two. So here is my lineup: 4 loaves of bread, double batch of granola cereal, breakfast burritos for the freezer, breakfast biscuits for the freezer. I am also considering pizza dough for the freezer, meatballs for the freezer and muffins (not sure what kind yet). Those extras will depend on what happens today - like whether or not we get the call to sign papers!!

I will try to remember to take some photos and post the results of this baking day, for you viewing pleasure:-) But don't hold me to it - my mind is a little random lately with all the stress.

Have a Blessed Resurrection weekend!

While we are still dealing with the frustrations of trying to close on our new home, I didn't want to neglect to wish you all a very blessed Resurrection weekend! Without the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, our faith would be useless and there would be no hope for an abundant life after this one, worshiping God forever!

Take a moment to remember just what He suffered for YOU, so that YOU may have everlasting life in relationship with the Father! It was horrible, terrible, painful - way worse than anything you can imagine. It puts the "trials" of this life in perspective, doesn't it? We get so upset about little things that really mean nothing in light of eternity, yet we let them sidetrack us from our love for the Father and His dear Son! If we could just keep our perspective and focus, the things of life would "grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace!"

He is awesome, He is worthy and He loves you more than you can imagine! Remember, Papa is especially fond of you!! (from The Shack)
