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.

Wild Black Raspberry Pancakes and the Heat

Today is a hot and sweltering day.  I have not completed any writing other than here on this blog.  The kitchen temperature is reading 90°F and we are continuing to go without air conditioning.  It will cut our electric bill in half from last year.

For dinner we enjoyed homemade whole wheat pancakes made with hand picked wild black raspberries.  Very delicious!  It was something inspiring for, the two kids who went out to pick them, to enjoy eating them.  They saw their hard work was worth it.
