Moving to Wordpress--New URL

For anyone out there reading this blog, I'm moving to Wordpress and have a new URL:

Although there are still some kinks to work out on the new site, I won't be posting here at Blogger anymore.

Cereal for Supper

I just had a lightning strikes moment. I think I just found my new domain name. I have been trying to think of something more creative than Jennifer's Journal for this blog and think Cereal For Supper would be perfect. It just whacked me in the head when I typed in the title of this post (we did have cereal for supper tonight).

Catchy, short, easy to say and to remember. Captures the idea of my blog of personal improvement and living intentionally without going overboard--sometimes cereal for supper is just the way things go down. And that's OK.

We're Just a Bunch of Turkeys

Here is the resident flock of turkeys. There is a bear in the neighborhood as well. I'm told his name is Charlie, but thankfully I have not gotten up close and personal with him.

Beautiful Fall Day

It was a beautiful, beautiful Fall day yesterday.

Perfect Job

Ok, maybe perfect is too strong of a word, but a job that I think I would like and be really good at would be a recipe tester, especially if it was gluten-free baking recipes. Is there such a thing? Does it pay?

Say, for example, you were writing a cookbook and wanted to test the instructions for completeness, ease of understanding, etc. I would cook the recipe as written and then make suggestions based on my experiences.
  • I am thorough and follow directions well.
  • I can write and have a fair amount of editing experience.
  • I love to bake.
  • I collaborate well with others and can also work fine alone.
  • I work well under deadlines.


I have been writing on this blog for over a year now.

That seems incredibly hard to believe. I started in May of 2008. I enjoy it more than I ever thought I would.
  • I love that it helps me document activities and projects.
  • I love that it gives me a place to get out some of the thoughts that rattle around in my brain.
  • I love the sense of accomplishment that it provides.

If there is anybody out there reading this, thank you for being a part of something I love.


With LM's fall birthday, he will not start kindergarten until he is almost six. He, therefore, has the next two years of preschool.

He is going one day a week for half a day this year, and we hope to increase that next year. I also wanted to do a bit more at home with him. I just ordered some things from Let's Explore.

I am excited about this reusable sticker book about the world, and I know he will love the crayon rocks.
