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.

Make it do,

When the kids are away, Mom gets to play...

Being home alone all day has been quite fun!  We live in the country and I actually got out my bike today.  I pumped up the tires and visited a town nearby to look over some garage sales.  I had nothing in mind but jars for canning.

To my excitement, I found an antique 2 qt. jar with metal clasp for $4.00 (perfect for refrigerator pickles) and 2 limited edition peanut cans for $.25 each.  When I got home I made myself a new homemade pin cushion with one of them.


The breeze is blowing in through the windows wonderfully today, so I'm taking an iced tea and going to do some reading.  I'm on vacation today, so no more housework.
