Dear Lydia,

Thank you for every homemaker episode you have broadcasted. Your efforts are appreciated more than you know!!

I like the idea of breaking our work up in increments. I am sewing a quilt for my youngest daughter out of all her old t- shirts. It is literally being done in increments of about an hour every other day. It is so true how other responsibilities and daily duties can attempt to stifle our need for creativity. Setting aside a segment of time to work on other things is so crucial and beneficial for our enjoyment at home.

You mentioned how your grandchildren are gathering their research and putting their information together with home crafted paper projects. I used a fabulous book in our homeschool by Dinah Zike that taught my children how to make all kinds of paper folding projects in which to display whatever it was we learning about at the time. I think your grandchildren would love that book, if you can still get it. So glad I didn’t get rid of my copy.

It seems I may be getting another opportunity to help homeschool a family in our church. The mother only speaks Spanish, and they need someone to come in a couple days a week to teach English. Perhaps the Lord is giving me a chance to redeem the years the locusts have eaten?! Those homeschooling years went by way too quickly for me. I wasn’t ready to be done teaching. 🙁 We will see how the Lord directs my path.

As always, it was so good to listen today’s talk. Your lovely background with the mantel and glowing candles was SO warm and inviting. Love you, Lydia.

Hi Lydia, So glad you're at Rumble, I'm loving Rumble and knowing it's more of a safe place too.

I so agree with you, I used to feel the same way when I was first thinking about homeschooling and that call to my heart. I was always so disappointed to find out women were homeschooling only for safety sake or they just could not afford private school. I always felt homeschooling was the best at least for a healthy family it was. It was a definite call to my heart! Now our daughters want to homeschool their children too. : )

You have some very good ideas Lydia, we're all in this green earth together trodding along with the Lord but content as all get out as they say in Texas. *big smile*

Take care now, blessings! ~Amelia

The photo of that sunset is just beautiful, as is the one of the trees in blossom! You are a bit ahead of us here. No blossoms yet, although I did notice today that my irises and tulips are poking through the soil.

That tea cup is very beautiful - how perfect it would be at a spring tea party!

Lydia, I enjoyed listening to this talk on Rumble, but I thought I would let you know that when I got to the 55 minute mark, it cut out, and I wasn't able to listen to the last 10 minutes. I came back to your blog page but the video wasn't showing up. I'm not sure if I did something wrong, or what the problem was.

I’ll see if it happens to anyone else.

Hi Lydia, I was going to leave a comment, but the other three people have said exactly what I was thinking! Great info. I remember my parents had the book future shock. Sounds horrible. I also have not read about Cynic before. Re masks, even the organic cotton ones have a smell. I get so dizzy wearing one, and my friend who is a naturopath said it was the chemicals in the mask that I'm highly sensitive to. I made my own veil that I constantly lift up or take down the entire time I'm out, which is still rare. My mom and I did go to our favorite boutique popup shop and then went out to lunch today. It's been over a year since we have been able to do that.

I was able to listen to the whole video. I read the above comment, so I tried to rewind but it wouldn't let me and went to a commercial. I reopened, got to the 58 min mark and then it went to a commercial again. I hope you get money for that commercial!

I will re- apply it soon on YouTube and post it here again

Hello Lydia, I really enjoyed this talk. You get me to think about things I haven't thought of in years.

I am not familiar with Rumble, of course I am not familiar with many things out there today, just the basics. But your video cut out on the last 10 min. and I saw another woman had the same experience. Just wanted you to know.

I look forward to your radio shows each week. You and I tend to quite a bit of housework that I usually avoid or just put off.

Have a lovely weekend.

Peace be with you,

I uploaded this video again so you can hear the last ten minutes which had been cut off.

Dear Lydia ‘
This afternoon while listening I starting switching out summer clothing for fall clothing. It was chilly here this morning- I do love the change of seasons! I enjoyed the homeschool lesson on the importance of rest. It’s nice to know I’m not alone with the face coverings. I find them unbearable as well. Lots of love to you
