A-z challenge meltdown


Unfortunately, I am not going to be able to finish this challenge as I am on the way to Tennessee.  With all the things that I have on my plate I thought that I would have the time to spend a little time and effort on this challenge. Although, I realize that it is not going to work out that way. I still plan to post some things just not everyday.

Healthy attitude

You know life can be hard, and throughout the day we can tend to eat whatever we want. Having a positive attitude about everything in your life can be hard. However, when you keep in mind the things that you want to accomplish with your life. There are so many things that I am trying to change about my life and one of them is trying to eat a little healthier. Each morning my daughter makes me a fruit juice and that is what I drink before breakfast, and before lunch if I eat lunch at all. I try to eat a healthy breakfast but sometimes that is hard to do with the current business that I work in.

Throughout the day I try to eat a few snacks so that I am not that hungry during the dinner hour. Watching what you eat is hard to do when your daughter knows how to cook so good. However, it must be done because in recent years I have gotten out of shape, and now am trying to get back to the way it was.

Choosing to have a healthier life is not bad at all as long as you are not trying to shove it down other’s. People are going to eat what they want without regard of the long term effects it will have on their life in the future. It is quite amazing how much people eat, and how much they throw out as well.

You have to be consistent and make a goal to achieve so that you will reach the desired outcome. You are doing this for yourself and no one else. You have to have the will and desire to make changes in your life because no one can help you but yourself.

Personally, I do not want to have to take pills for the rest of my life to keep everything in check. Starting now, watching what I eat, and the amount of exercise that I do are the most important things. Also, having a healthy attitude will help me achieve the desired outcome that I am searching for within my life.

Staying positive about everything in your life can change everything because no one can bring you down. You cannot let people get under your skin because you will be letting them win.

Gardening During the Summer


A2Z-BADGE [2016]

Gardening is so much fun and the benefits of gardening is something that you cannot let go of because of the amount of food that you get from your garden. We are looking forward to this year because we have already got most of our garden put in for the upcoming summer months. This year we are doing many things to fill our property with things that we can eat throughout the year.

Here are our raised beds that we have onions, garlic, sage, tarragon, dill, eggplant, oregano, tomatoes (soon), and cilantro. We are looking forward to watching them grow and produce. We will be putting up more pictures as we go along on this journey of our garden. It is going to look pretty when they all start growing and producing their leaves.

Squash is the best because you can do quite a few things with squash. Of course, it is going to be a while before they are ready but watching them grow is the best part of it all. This is just the start of our adventure with our garden. Throughout, the process we will be documenting the beauty of our garden when it finally takes off, and we know that it does not look that pretty right now.

Flower’s all Around


A2Z-BADGE [2016]

The best part of spring is watching the flower’s pop out into their beautiful blooms, and seeing the beautiful array of flower’s surrounding your yard. The spring is the most wonderful time of the year because it is not too hot, and not too cold. The beauty of the outside world is something that you cannot escape. It is a time to sit down and enjoy the beauty that the world has to offer.

These only bloom once a year and it is the beauty of watching the blooms pop out for the short time that they are around. They are beautiful to put around your house in the front side of your flower bed to enjoy while the bloom last, which is not long. However, they are pretty to look at throughout their lifespan.

Flower’s just bring some peace and serenity to yourself. You can literally just sit around admiring your flower’s all the time and get lost in the book that you are reading when you are surrounded by such beauty.

The beautiful Periwinkle’s that grow all around the yard create a beautiful array around your property. Although when you try to transplant them into different parts of your property they do not last. They eventually come back the following year but for the moment you should leave them where ever they come up.

Here you can take food coloring and add it to your water then it goes up the stems of the flower and create’s a beautiful outlie on the outside of the flower’s petals of this Wild Daisy.

Equations

In the midst, of homeschooling the children are learning more about equations. Although, teaching them can be interesting to see what they can get right with working with the equations. Most people do not believe that we use equations in everything that we do in our life. We use equations for a variety of things. Telling time, distant from one place to another, cooking in the kitchen, plotting out a garden, and many other things.

Of course, the equations that we are working on are simple. However, if you are good with math these are not challenging enough. One of the equations we are working on today is

(3x^2y^6)^7
3^7(x^2)^7 (y^6)^7
2,187x^14y^42

Simple for those who understand math equations however, when you are teaching math equations you have to do it step by step for the children to learn the process of finding their answer without the help of a calculator.

3a^n (a^n + a^n-1)
3a^n × a^n + 3a^n × a^n-1
3a^2n + 3a^2n-1

Math can be fun, and easy to learn when you have the right person teaching you the ropes of the equations. Enjoying math is not easy for most people because they think they are always going to get the wrong answer. However, when you second guess yourself you will always get the answer wrong because of the second guessing.
