About Dana

I'm a dichotomy of blue jeans, pretty jewelry, frugalista, and Southern girl living the simple rural life. I want to live my life holistically, thoughtfully, economically, and most of all gratefully, and encourage other women to do the same.

What I'm Reading Now

From time to time and when the mood hits me, I write about what I'm reading. I do it for no reason in particular, mostly because I like to see what others are reading and I'm assuming I'm not much different from everyone else. Maybe they want to see what I'm reading, in case it's something they want to check out also.

1. My Delicious Life with Paula Deen. Told through her husband's vantage point, the book provides a glimpse into Michael Groover's courtship with Paula, with some pretty darn good recipes from his files thrown in as a bonus.

2. The Power of a Praying Parent by Stormie Omartian. Good reading for a parent with children of any age. It's the third time I've read it. I'm reading it again because of the next book on the list.

3. How to Talk Confidently with Your Child about Sex. Do I have to do this? Bring me Stormie Omartian's book to get me through it.

Happy reading.

Homeschool Freebie in South Carolina

Here's something I found out when I took my son to see the natural history, science, and other historical exhibits at the SC State Museum.

It's free to both homeschool educators and homeschool students! I had no idea. I just had to show a teacher i.d., which I fulfilled with my HSLDA card (or SCHEA card would work, too).

Super cool! Thought I'd pass it along to those in our state who, like me, are in the dark.
