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.

Wear Your Slippers All Day ~ October 14th

October 14th is "Wear Slippers all Day" day.

How fun is that? So make sure you put that on your calendar.

Today is National Diversity Day and World Farm Animals Day.  October is also Diversity Awareness Month, Eat Better, Eat Together Month, National Book Month, and National Cookie Month.

It's raining here today.  A bit dreary, but we needed the rain in the garden.  My sugar snap peas were starting to wilt, and my green beans are about ready to harvest.  

In celebration of National Book Month, I am pulling this off my shelf.  Today is a good day for reading this book.  Hubby bought it for me years ago, and it contains seven novels by Jane Austen.  I may also bake us some cookies and hold a "read and feed" night here with the family. 

I am also making a trip to the library.  I to return this book.  I'm not going to have time to make any of these this year.  However, I do plan on checking this book out again.  Cute stuff!

I finished the 4 scarves that teachers ordered, and making a 5th one for my 10 year-old.  They have a spirit week this week, and she has pleaded for one to wear on Friday.

What book(s) are you reading this month?

Well, not reading a book yet, but I did pick up a bout a dozen books at the library 50-cent sale last week. Looking at either Confessions of en Eco-Redneck or The Last Place on Earth (Scott & Amundsen's race to the South Pole). The Redneck one is much shorter, so I'll probably start with that one (263 pg. vs. 564 pgs.).

BTW, those slippers are too stinking cute! I've got to learn how to knit and crochet better, I think those would make a great pre-winter project.

I like the idea of reading a novel this's been a while since I picked up an actual book...earlier this year I read a book. Sad...I used to love to read books!

...guess I'm just busy. ;) Pat

PS...I like your choice of book. may read that one myself.
