Hibernation: Proof





I really can't justify this post at except, that I wanted proof that I finally managed to clean and organize the family room.

There may or may not be a couple large piles of books to find homes for and papers to file still, but I'm calling it job well done.

..... someday it won't be Migraine Orange down there.

..... someday.

Hibernation Daybook: Sounds

I still feel like I'm in hibernation mode (have I mentioned how much I actually adore January just for this reason), but I haven't been asleep.  Just doing all those fun indoor things with the family.

There's quite a lovely cacophony joining me most days, whether it's making dinner or keeping me company on long work days in the vault.

I love listening to my friends chitchat the day away so I've been making my way slowly through Haley and Christy's podcast.

I've discovered Bearheart recently on Noisetrade and have just been loving them.  Hoping a full length album is in the works!  I highly recommend "You".


My Love Good Music subscription has yet to disappoint.  I've been singing along to Drew Holcomb's latest (which we already have thanks to LGM and their digital file!)


Also thanks to Noisetrade I've heard there's a new The Vespers album on it's way and I just can't wait.


What lovely noises have been filling your house recently?

Sheenazing Awards: Cultural Showcase

The 2015 Sheenazing Awards are over.  This year I came runner up in "Most Under Appreciated".... beaten by a sneak attack of lovely Canadian bloggers.

Story.of.my.life.

Anyways in case you were busy you might have missed the new segment of this years Sheenazing Awards.  The Cultural Showcase.  I know we're all so busy with our two dozen church ministries and three dozen children praying hourly rosaries while making liturgically appropriate dinner to hand out to the poor from your back door so I thought I'd highlight a few of the stand out contestants from this year.


Here we have Dwija from House Unseen, Life Unscripted sporting an amazing collection of things she's acquired from online second hand shopping.  Sources included Twice, ThredUp and Olivia's Instagram Feed.


Then we have Christy from Fountains of Home.  She's Canadian.


Mary from Better Than Eden decided to go with an all white theme.... to no one's surprise.



Kelly from This Ain't The Lyceum and Heather from Mama Knows, Honeychild were... well... unique as always.


Kendra from Catholic All Year made her lovely ensemble completely by hand, in three hours, while homeschooling, breastfeeding, and saving a bus full of orphans.  Simultaneously.

Read Kendra's paragraph without the Oxford Comma.... I dare you.

Haley from Carrots for Michalemas wore this wonderful piece grown in their front yard garden and sewn by hand by her husband Daniel.

Broccoli.... peacock.... mermaid?  It's probably 100% organic, too.


Nell from Whole Parenting, well... you just can't get more adorable can you?


Jenna from Blessed Is She would like fans to know that the design on her dress will be available as wallpaper background on the next email.

Oh, there were so many good entries this year in the Cultural Competition.

Good show, everyone.

Though, if anyone would love to clarify the idea behind Clan Donaldson's entry, I'd much appreciate it.

Is it a Walking Dead Reference?  I just don't know...


See you next year!
