I was so excited to find the Gnome radio show . I have added their widget to the side bar of this blog. I hope you enjoy stopping by and listening to Melissa’s radio show. Melissa Nielsen from the Little Flower Garden has been discussing how important it is for us to create rhythms in our day. Which fits so well with what I have been pondering on lately. Its been fun listening to what she has to share, she has some wonderful thoughts and ideas.

One of the reasons I started this blog was to help motivate myself to do better with setting up better routines to our days and evenings and then sticking to them : ) Evenings tend to be my hardest time of the day. Im just so tired, and that is when I long to be alone and have time for myself. I keep telling myself if I would just stick with a routine I could have that time after the children were in bed. Then the time changes and we all want to stay up with the sun. : ) So it is a bit of a struggle at our house. But Im learning and finding wonderful things Im hoping to pass along.

Do you find your routine changing with the different seasons? Is there a certain time of day that is harder for you to stick with your routine? What are some ways that you bring the joy of Spring into your daily schedules? Hope to hear from you, I so enjoy reading all of your blogs they are so encouraging. I am really looking forward to your thoughts on this! : )

I PANIC in the evenings! Too much to do in so little time. I'm not good at sticking to routines at all. I try and try, but just can't seem to do it. Don't even get me started on the time change....lol. My daily clock is definitly related to the cycle of the seasons...I think that's why the time changes throws me off so much, just not natural.
Afternoon is the hardest for me, the biorhythm gets off and I tire, until I have that second round of coffee and go outside for fresh air.

I love the Gnome Radio, I had to add it to my page as well! Evenings are hard. I get really tired and then things go badly. When I make an effort to get my son in bed around 8, our bedtime routine becomes much more peaceful. So I keep trying. Goodluck!

I've been meaning to listen to Gnome Radio, but whenever I sit down to the computer my daughter wants to listen to her Music Together cd's. Maybe someday I'll have an opportunity to listen. :O)
