Owls Coloring Page

Owl Coloring Page – Here’s a great question for you…did you know that a group of owls is called a parliament? I totally would have failed that question on an exam. It’s been a while now since I’ve made a coloring page so I decided to draw a “parliament” of owls for all of our owl fans out there. We love to draw and color in our home – even my husband, who’s main artistic skill is drawing stick men, enjoys getting in on a little coloring action. I often send a variety of coloring pages home with Noelle’s friends when they visit – always a hit. I’ve had a number of mom friends tell me that the coloring pages have saved their sanity while traveling, at weddings, on ferries, camping or when mom just needs a moment of peace and quiet. Some of my teacher friends use these pages in their classes when their kids have finished all their work or to leave for substitute teachers.  I’m so happy that people make such great use of these coloring pages. If you have any theme requests for future coloring pages, please let me know.

The Ultimate Vacation Packing List

free printable packing checklist for vacatiion

Printable packing list for your next vacation

The Ultimate Vacation Packing List – Free Printable – Now that all the fun and craziness of the Christmas holidays are behind us, we’re hit with the realization that we still have quite a few more months of winter to go. I’m not a fan of long, cold winters (well, it doesn’t get below freezing often where I live but it rains a lot) so we try to save enough money for a vacation to a sunny destination each year. I don’t know about you but I absolutely love winter vacations – I mean I plan for it all year long. If I could only do one thing for the rest of my life, it would be to travel. I love experiencing other cultures, landscapes and food and I think travelling is the ultimate education.

This year we’re so fortunate to be going to one of our favorite destinations, Mexico (Manzanillo to be more precise). A big part of what I love about going on a vacation is the build-up and excitement before we go. I usually have everyone’s luggage pretty much packed about a week before we leave – I know, I have issues. Every year I go through my mental packing checklist but inevitably forget something.

Since we’re leaving shortly I decided to create my own printable packing list that I can pull out and print every year now from this point onward. I thought many of my fellow travelers may like to have this checklist too.

Quick Reference Herb Chart

Herb Chart

Quick Reference Herb Chart for Cooking

Who doesn’t love the multitude of flavors that fresh herbs add to a meal. I’m so lucky to live in a climate where I can grow a variety of herbs year round. I try to use them whenever I get the opportunity. Not only are they incredibly tasty but many herbs also offer great health benefits. Parsley for example relaxes muscles and aids in digestion, rosemary boosts brainpower, oregano fights inflammation and thyme and sage are full of antioxidants.

Sometimes the thing that prevents us from using these wonderful herbs is our lack of knowledge of which herbs go with which foods. I’ve created a printable quick reference chart for you to keep in your cookbook or stick on the inside of your cupboard. This chart helps to layout what herbs goes best with the various meats, salads, soups, etc.

Home Book Club Card

Home Book Club Card

Home Book Club Card – In my recent post Certificate of Awesomeness I confessed to my parenting “oops” when my daughter didn’t get a card of congratulations from her teacher for reading 100 books.  As you know, Noelle did indeed read 100 books and I created a certificate of awesomeness to help fix my blunder.  In the same vain, we really work hard to make sure Noelle is a confident reader and yesterday after school she spent about an hour reading. Both my husband and I were impressed by this desire to read without being prompted and Michael had a great idea to encourage this positive behaviour – like the “karma card” from another one of my posts, why not have a home book club where a reward is given after reading 10 books (this does not include her books that we read for school). Noelle loved the idea too so I spent the morning creating a Home Book Club card. I’ve created two versions, one called the “Home Book Club” for families to use, and then I made one called the “Kids Book Club” that can be used by teachers, counsellors, kids clubs, camps, libraries, etc.
