Today's Bible Study- Genesis 47- The Famine
and Romans 2 (almost done with 3)

Today's Hymn and 

5251 steps recorded yesterday. Got in the walk around the block. Don't know if we will today though. It's a lot colder and I don't want to trigger any relapses in this cold.

Listed more stuff on eBay and went through more books from the car, leaving another stack to list. A couple of things I listed were from Mom's keepsake box. I sent pictures to my brother and neither of us remember them at all. So, if there are no memories, why keep them?

Still didn't do the video. Never wanted to take the time to do my hair and, well, since I'm doing the videos to sell hair products it probably shouldn't be sticking up all over the place.

Did you know that computer studies say that the English language is 98% phonetically correct?

Did you know that every honest study done, as well as a plithera of experience, says that teaching intensive phonics is the best way to teach reading? That all but the most severely retarded CAN learn to read, and read well, with intensive phonics?

Did you know that after a child is labeled "learning disabled" (so the schools get twice the money for them) that tutors and learning centers THEN teach intensive phonics to "fix" their problem?

Did you know while government schools are fighting over the best way to teach and are seeing continuing falling literacy levels, private and homeschools are cheerfully producing 99.99% literacy with intensive phonics?

Did you know that America is the ONLY country with an alphabet-based language that insists on teaching reading as if it was Chinese? And even the Chinese are now converting to an alphabet/phonics system?

Did you know recent MRI studies say that, though good readers THINK they are recognizing the shapes of words, our brains are actually sounding out the phonograms in each word we read? They just do it so fast we don't realize that is what we are doing.

Did you know that the phonogram "c" stands for 2 sounds; /k/ and /s/? That "c" ONLY says /s/ when followed by an e, i, or y?

So, remember the rule "A c turns soft when followed by an e, i, or y. The rest of the time it says /k/." and the 10 exceptions below and you can read and spell words with c in them.

The only true exceptions:

arcing, soccer, sceptic, (the c stays hard even though followed by soft vowels)
celtics (when referring to the culture, not the sports team, the c stays hard),
Caesar, (the c softens even though followed by an a. This is because this is a Latin word where the c is actually followed by a vowel combination [ae] that softens the c in Latin.)
cello, ciao (these last two are Italian and in Italian c followed by e, i, and y is pronounced like ch), Connecticut, indict (silent c's)
facade (a French word. In French there is a cedille to turn the c soft, but English doesn't have cedille's, so we just use a regular c and soften it for no reason other than its heritage).

Still on schedule for this week:
  • Finish getting the living room back in order.
  • Mount Never Rest (laundry)
  • Decide on events for both the church and my business.  (Sigh. No time to look yet. Need to bring some money into my business, but I don't have any parties or events scheduled)
  • Exchange son #1's sim card for one that fits. (on the way)
  • Declutter 3 armloads of books from the car.(or go through drawers. Or both.)
Why Schools will Always Fail to Educate Children

Flexi of the Day:  

14 Day Sale!

Why would someone want to join Lilla Rose?

1) The products are great! They don't hurt my head or pull out my hair, are made of high quality material with a 1 year guarantee, and are beautiful to boot!
2) The company is great! They truly live by the biblical rule "Treat others the way you want to be treated."
3) 30% discount on everything you buy for yourself.
4) 30-45% commission on anything you sell.

And The starter kit has a poster and stand, catalogs, flyers, etc, plus $300 worth of products for $125.00.
Oh, wait a minute....

The "Fast Start Kit"  is an addition to the starter kit that gives you an extra $1400 worth of products and automatically qualifies you for future bonuses (which you can earn later, but it takes more time).
The Fast Start Kit is normally $625, but is on sale for the next 14 days for $599! That is MORE than 50% off the retail price of the products in the kit!

And something a fellow stylist pointed out yesterday, every month Lilla Rose offers an incentive to us stylists ("Sell $xxx and get this neat gift!") This month's stylist incentive:

Receive this when your personal sales volume is $600 or more!

Aren't they gorgeous? 

Now, I don't at the moment see anyway I can qualify since I have no events or parties scheduled right now, but you CAN! Signing up as a stylist and buying the "Fast Start Kit" above automatically qualifies you for the incentive!

So if you have an extra $700 laying around (lol), you get;
  • The starter kit with $300 worth of product + catalogs, flyers, order forms, etc (everything in the picture.)
  • The Fast Start kit with   $1400.00 worth of products AND
  • The Stylist incentive Free!

For my routines, see the sidebar.

Monthly Habit we are building:

Get dressed every morning to the shoes.

Flylady began working with mostly stay at home moms. We SAHM often have the problem with this (I never have, but I understand why others do). It really does make a difference to get dressed each day.

(I am not going to wear shoes. I'm just not. Call me a rebel. I will wear socks when it is cold.)

Weekly zone focus:  

Kitchen and pantry, both need some decluttering and extra cleaning, but I don't know that I'll get to them.

(This is the zone we are tackling all our monthly and less often chores in this week) 

Today's Meals:

  • SOS (Search or Starve)
  • SOS
  • Quesadillas

Today's FlyLady Mission:

  • Clean off the hot spots in the kitchen  (There aren't any, so can't do this :-) ) 
  • Clean the big appliances

    Tami's assignments (Tami is a homeschooling mom of 6 who is a partner of FlyLady):

    • Declutter the fridge

    "To take the first step in faith, you don't have to see the whole staircase: just take the first step." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This applies to a clean house, too.

    "Anything worth doing is worth doing Imperfectly" - Flylady

    "Baby Steps."

    "You can do anything for 15 minutes." 

    "You are not behind. Just jump in where you are."

    "Your house didn't get this way overnight. It won't get under control in a day. It takes time."

    How about you? What's on your list today?

    Have a great day!

    I highly recommend

    Thank you so much for commenting! I love to talk to my readers.

    I do ask that there be no anonymous commenters, though. If I am brave enough to put my name on this blog, you should be too:-)

    Please keep it civil. Remember we are all human and make mistakes, and that since we can't see each other's faces or hear each other's tone of voice, it is very hard to get the emotion in what we are saying each other. Use lots of emoticons! :-) And show grace and love to each other.
