One of the things I miss most about living in the northeast is all the apple picking, and apple cider donuts. Jealous of you, but also happy for you because apple picking is truly one of the best things about fall. I remember doing it from the time I was a little kid and my kids still talk about all the times we went when they were little. Some of my best memories. I used to tell Greg I wanted to own an apple farm and he would say, no, you want to live on an apple farm but you want to have someone else do all the work. Which was absolutely true. I just wanted to be able to wake and see and smell it all, but I wanted nothing to do with actually keeping it running. So anyhoo...now that I have written all about me and my enthralling tales I will end this. Really, I am happy for you all that you get to experience it. Orange picking just doesn't cut it. Speaking of orange groves...just kidding. I'm really ending this now.

Mmmmmm, just thinking about how it must've smelled makes me hungry. The closest we're getting to that this year is apple cider from Walmart and some New York Macintosh apples. Now I want to make a pie!

About Me

  • Hi, my name is Kirsten. I am married to my best friend and we have nine awesome children including our little saint in heaven, Thomas Joseph. We are Catholic, loving, living, and learning about our faith every day. We just moved to a fixer upper farm here in beautiful Kentucky. We also homeschool some of our children. I really enjoy COFFEE, reading, gardening, running, and knitting. I try to enjoy, laundry and cleaning bathrooms and sweeping floors. But what I really love is to be home, with my husband and children, living this life. This blog is where I write about the good stuff (mostly). Thanks for stopping by!

Prayer to St. Joseph

  • PRAYER TO ST. JOSEPH THE WORKMAN Composed by Pope St. Pius X O glorious St. Joseph, model of all those who are devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace to work conscientiously, putting the call of duty above my natural inclinations, to work with gratitude and joy, in a spirit of penance for the remission of my sins, considering it an honor to employ and develop by means of labor the gifts received from God, to work with order, peace, moderation and patience, without ever shrinking from weariness and difficulties, to work above all with purity of intention and detachment from self, having always death before my eyes and the account that I must render of time lost, of talents wasted, of good omitted, of vain complacency in success, so fatal to the work of God. All for Jesus, all through Mary, all after thine example, O Patriarch, St. Joseph. Such shall be my watchword in life and in death. Amen.

A Considered Childhood by Elizabeth Foss

  • As much as I am able, every day, I will ensure that my child will: * Live the Liturgy * Experience loveliness * Breathe deeply: Fresh air and exercise * Serve others * Listen to, contemplate, and exchange ideas. * Develop expressive skills. * Practice logical reasoning. Math. * Receive focused attention and affection
