One Flourishing, Frugal and Fun Family!

One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

Random Tidbits


Yesterday I was telling one of the girls how peaceful it was to watch a farmer harvest his field. One side of her mouth curved up, and one eyebrow pulled upward. Her mouth fell open and she just thought I was weird. She thought I had lost my marbles.

Watching a farmer sitting in his combine seat, harvesting across a large field, with no other person, house, or vehicle in site, truly is peaceful to watch. It's a way of life that is slowly diminishing.

Speaking of simple country life, I found a wonderful magazine at the local library. It's called Cook's Country. Here's an online link to the Web site to: http://www.cookscountry.com/?extcode=K00YAAN00

Along with Clean Cooking and several others, it has some very good recipes.

The family is getting surprised tonight with a baked cereal snack, and homemade Hot Cranberry Punch. The chickens blessed us with 5 eggs today!

Bless your family, spouse, friend or neighbor today.
