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.

~cats who make me laugh at 7am when 2 cars won't start and one has no gas.
~God's forgiveness.
~old photgraphs.
~hugs from my kids.
~good music.
~having my mother's old sewing machine.
~the Internet where I can watch on-line sermons.

Oh, this is great ;) :) :) I remember one winter, when we were still living in Oregon, that there was a freeze overnight...and we had to leave all our cupboards covering the pipes open and the water on, to keep the pipes from freezing. Thankfully we didn't have frozen pipes. That would have been a real drag.

Oh, I love the internet for on-line sermonds and for finding cool sites about crafts etc :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)
