October Inspiration

This is the time of year for standing under horse chestnut trees and coming home with pockets stuffed full of conkers.

Here, in England, the weather is still mild but that won't last. This post has some very practical tips for living without central heating. We aren't planning to do that but there are some helpful and fairly low cost ideas for retaining heat. 

I spend hours reading aloud so this was timely. At the end of a long day, it is easy to read too fast! 

Nursery of the Nation has a series about blogging. This particular article is an interesting combination of thoughts about how a Christian blog will be different and how to earn by blogging.

The River Thames is, well, London, so I found this post about discovering its history, fascinating. This is a trip that we hope to enjoy some day.

Claire, at Angelicscalliwags has had an amazing series, over the summer, about learning about the Little House books while renovating their own wooden house. The series finished with a trip to the American Folk Museum in Northern Ireland. 

Last month, I wrote about a German family, the Wunderlichs, whose children were removed because they were home educated. The children have now been returned to their parents although the parents still do not have legal custody and the children have to attend state school. This is a CBN report about the case.

We are learning part of Psalm 19 and at this time of year, this seems so appropriate.
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth His handiwork.

Hope you are enjoying the beauties of autumn, too.
