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.

A Day Off
Although I had a few errands to run, I pretty much took the rest of the day "off" for once. I didn't even cook. We enjoyed leftovers - spaghetti and corn on the cob.
I took the afternoon to catch up on reading and writing both. Getting "rejections" isn't my problem right now. I haven't sent out enough to receive rejections. However, this book is very inspiring and contains many writing exercises.
Even the barn cats joined me for a relaxing afternoon on the front porch.
Those jelly beans you see in the photo are made in the USA, do not contain high fructose syrup, and contain real fruit juice. A girl has to have candy once in a while.
