Blue Ribbon Week

School- the LIST. Books, workbooks, DVD's, CD's and on-line stuff. We are rocking our little homeschool world after months of being tossed by turbulence.
No individual reviews this week, but the Grand-Poombah TOS Review Crew Blue Ribbon Awards were announced.
And yet another amazing give-away, valued at over $150, in anticipating of the
Devotions from Torah: Genesis and Exodus reviews and launch.
Stay tuned for Weeding Out the Wheat, Simply Put: Economics (with another amazing give-away!), and Devotions from Torah reviews coming up soon!

The Thanksgiving menu is planned. Our Crewbie friends are bringing yummy stuff, including mini-pumpkin pies. We are pie people. Apple pie is de riguer for every holiday and sometimes just because. Lots of veggies and as many different olives as I can find.

I've been reading Killing Jesus by Bill O'Reilly. A rousing good romp through Ancient History.

 I love this list: 20 things the rich do every day. I do many, not enough of some and a couple nada. But it's a good starting place, and I realized reading the list that there are some areas that I just need to make better time for.

We're getting a group rate at the local workoutRus place. Can't wait. Especially since it's getting cold and windy and snowy out there. Too cold to walk outdoors and I can't go fast enough to get a sweat going. Elliptical machines and my knees actually get along. And weight machines and I, oddly enough, have a terrific working relationship.
Add in cabbage salad for lunch and my 2 quarts of green tea a day. Just call me wonder woman.
