"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

Another Project......long overdue

Since we married 11 years ago, I have been collecting recipes-like every good wife….:)

I quickly discovered just shoving them in a drawer wasn’t the best solution for organizing them, so made up my own system of organization!

I purchased some of those plastic sleeves that go in a three-ring binder, & categorized the cards, slips of paper & magazine pages.

It was a cheap & easy fix, but at the time I didn’t realize there were systems like that were beautiful & organized-that I could buy!

I finally found one, & I am thrilled with the fact that I can see all the recipes-instead of having them shoved in a pocket.

I also love that this beautiful book is almost like a scrapbook of all those important family recipes.

How do you store your recipes?

Great idea. Half of mine are in a pretty binder on matching cards and the other half are shoved in a drawer, waiting to be put on pretty cards.

Love your new look and name for your blog! I'm thinking more and more about homeschooling my kids, so I may have some questions for you in the near future.

I have had my recipes in a ring bound notebook since I was a child... just write them as I collect them...Only it has just recently disintegrated and now is a clump of papers with an elastic band!!! Very organized not!!! Have a great day!!!
