DIY at Home

Please enjoy what you need to do at home while I discuss the importance of becoming less dependent on commercial products and services and doing as much as you can, yourself. 


Self-assigned material to read or complete:

One of the verses I used in the broadcast was 2 Peter 1:-8.  I cited it as 1st Peter but it is 2nd Peter.

I showed you something I ordered from

and made reference to 
the British chef

Thank you Mrs. S! I enjoy listening to your talks while I work around the house. You are lovely company.

Listened to half of one recent episode while cleaning and making dinner
yesterday and that thought came to me. The second half I'll listen to today!

Lydia, my 10 year old daughter happened to be watching part of your video with me, and we both gasped when we saw you hold up the Anne of Green Gables Treasury! As a part of our homeschooling this past spring, we read through this book together and found it delightful, especially the pretty artwork. Before the summer is over we plan to do some of the activities in this book - including pressing flowers to make bookmarks, making lavender sachets, sewing an old-fashioned apron, and of course, making an Anne tea party!

I think it's rather funny to see you with this book, because as I was reading through it with my daughter I kept thinking "Lydia would love this book," and I guess I was right! :)

Lydia said...

Laura I understand they had tea sets and dolls and other things in the Anne industry of the 1980's and 90's. I'm going to try to make an Anne doll.

Laura Jeanne said...

Lydia, they still do sell Anne-themed can see what is available now at (click on "shop"). An Anne doll sounds lovely, I hope you do find time to do that.

I forgot to say earlier that I was watching this video while I stirred some mulberry jam. Mulberries aren't really my favourite berry (I prefer blueberry jam) but we have a good crop of them here, so I figured I might as well put by some for us instead of letting the birds get them all. I thought it was funny that while I was pouring the jam into the jars, you started talking about your cute little set of jam. :)

Oh, my! I must have missed making the correction on your edition. My apologies! Final line of the poem read, “You’ll need it when you’re old. McGuffey Fourth Eclectic Reader “

Thank you so much for sharing it. I’m so happy to know you are enjoying the Snail Mail so much!

It was written there but it was too close to the edge of the paper abs the printer couldn’t pick it up. When handwriting newsletters I often have to start over because of writing being too close to the edges and the printer won’t photograph it.

Dear Lydia: Thank you for posting some more videos this week. They all are delightful. Wow, your new cups, The Anne of Green Gables treasury, the scriptures, the encouragement of us to become more industrious, I am so thankful for your channel. Thanks to you I learned to make bread. I thank the Lord for your beautiful life. God bless you abundantly. Much love. Maria.

We homeschooled about the same time I guess, because some of the books you feature, I have, too. I have the Anne book. My mother and I were listening while shelling "Big Boy" peas. The parts where you said things like, "keep learning" and ideas like, "you're never too old," "life needs to be lived to its fullest," she laughed and was, I think, encouraged. She'll be 89 in a couple of weeks and beginning to wonder why she's still around. I think your words helped her.
