Hello Hello...

Hello to all the folks who may have drifted over here from my Homeschooling blog that is now closed in an effort to gain some control over the obligations in my life. There won't be a whole lot of changes over here but I can't say that I will be blogging here more than 1-2 times a week..
But today I have a great game to share with you that is wonderful for sharpening up the quick adding skills of everyone from toddler to teen to ahem.. some people who might be over 40. It has the added bonus of getting you all up-close and personal with the Greek Gods, thus making it a total winner with my mythology crazy eight year old.
Zeus is Loose is one of many great games from the people at Gamewright. Fast to play and easy to learn this is one of the games that we use in our homeschooling Workboxes to make the most of our " break time". At less than $10 .. and often on sale at Barnes an Noble ( we got ours for $4) this is a great game to pickup for at home and would also make a great gift. - check it out!
Next time- Super easy holiday cheese log!

Something Wicked This Way Comes....

Ah... the season is here and it's time once again to pull out the fall things along with the things for a month long celebration of Halloween that we call Boo-Ween! As you might remember last year I scored really big at the "after-ween" sales. It was so much fun opening up the 4 big containers of stuff.. better yet since I got it all at 90%+ off!! Bit by bit I will share what I have done around the house to.. spook it up a bit! :)
