Now, you thought I forgot about a pick-me-up for YOU, 
homeschool momma, didn't you?
 Now would I do that?
Nothing heightens the mood and makes a dreary day 
You and the little ones deserve to bask in the aroma and candlelight!
Pulling the kiddos close under a throw with a great book
is the best way to start any homeschool day!
