In other words, Happy Ramadan. Can you see the new moon? Well, it's currently Day 7, a full week into our holiday. Even though I'm nursing and thus not obligated to, I've been abstaining from food until dark each day. It's been going good, I'm pretty much use to it now. I'm staying on top of my reading this year even outlining as I go along. The biggie this year is that as a family we have given up TV this month. The only thing we have watched are school-related documentaries. This is the fast I am most thankful for, because our TV viewing, as a family, was getting out of control. I've never been against television, but it has to be limited. Before now, I wasn't going a good job of controlling how much I watched. I was limiting the shows the children watched, so they just watched what I was watching. Mostly HGTV and Food Network, but still a major time waster. It's kind of sad when your 5 year olds can identify Rachael Ray, Paula Dean, and Bobby Flay. LOL!
Ok, let's get on with the crafts . . .
