What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

I love to hear from you!

Again, we are sisters, separated at birth (and a few years *ahem*). I love English. I love writing, reading, I love words, I love dissecting sentences...or at least I used to. Haven't allowed myself the luxury in so many years. I think it's time. Don't you? I know you do, Jo :)

My Girl's knee is swelling up like there is no tomorrow because she gets up and moves around too much when I leave for the office. So I told the boss I wasn't coming in today. And I might not go in tomorrow. And he's not in on Friday, so no need for me to go in. Really wondering how to tell my husband that I am done with the whole work thing and I think I'm ready to go back to school. Wish we hadn't just bought that car...lol.

I'm with you on diagramming sentences. I love to diagram sentences--and fully intend to teach my own children how to someday (since they apparently don't teach that in school anymore.)

Kathleen Jaeger

Okay, so I'm a grammar wanna-be. I haven't diagrammed sentences -- but I want to! It is all tied to in-depth Bible study for me. And I even took one semester of Greek while I was in college. But they required that you start in 5th century BC Greek and then move on to New Testament Greek. And I needed to graduate. But I saved my text books. And I was the ONLY female in the class (which was fine with me being single in college). Okay...so here is I am rambling back to you in the comments. Take care.

LOVE LOVE LOVE diagramming sentences and remember doing it through 12th grade--and doing sentences that took up an entire sheet of notebook paper!

It pains me GREATLY that it's no longer taught in schools--at least not the ones our kids attend. There is NO better way to learn the parts of speech/parts of a sentence than diagramming!

Tara

I LOVE to diagram sentences and cannot wait until we get into that in the coming years. I've already told my oldest how much fun it is and I really think she'll love it too!

Oh, and I have a really big comfy chair in the corner of my den. Beside it is a HUGE red bin for all our library books. The overflow books (usually 20-30 books) sit on the floor around the "reading chair." I think I could live in a library and be so very content!
