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.

More Pickles ~ Fun and Frugal Entertainment

Ahhhh......more pickles.  And yet I still have some producing on the vines.  And more on my table.  Gotta love those pickles.  I really need to get my root cellar dug. 


In the evening I typically try to un-wind as some point.  To do that I grab whatever craft I am working on, or do what we did last night.  I could classify it as exercise too. 


If you follow my blog daily, you know that part of our family motto is "wear it out."  So we dug out the old 45's and danced.  And laughed. 


I think my kids just experienced culture shock or something.  They spent most of the night laughing at me having such a good time.  From "Jim Dandy" to even older titles, I played half way through the stack.  Of course, I still had 45's from my teen years, and played a few of those (Don Henley and more).  At one point in my life my mother had a garage sale, and I sold all of my albums, which the kids are still complaining about.  My first album ever, was J. Geils.  


Even thought those albums are gone, we still order the titles on CD from our local library.  My kids actually like some the music I used to listen to.

I ended the night with some soothing oldies from back in the 70's or older.  From what I could tell, only one 45 is cracked and one is chipped off.  The only complaint from me - my record player is not loud enough (ha ha ha ha!).
