  1. Time for Fun!

    Company has come and gone. It was a blast while they were here. We went to Moose Jaw, SK and took in the sights. Company took tours of the Tunnels of Moose Jaw, while hubby and I wandered the downtown area and shopped. We found organic produce cheaper there than at home, by one third! I picked up apples and pears to take home. Turned the pears into a pear sauce for pancakes. I'm snacking on the apples.

    Company was artistic and musical. She artistic, he musical. On the way ...

  2. Living Small and Loving It !!!

    by , 05-30-2012 at 08:50 PM (Little Blessings!!)
    We have been living in our Motor Home for two months already. I just love it. It take so little time to sweep through and wipe up the floors and clean the bathroom. The bathroom is so nice. I love the corner shower. We just put up a liquid soap dispenser for: shower gel, shamoo and condition. We had to replace the shower head and the toilet. The floor and counter tops in there are tile. I never had tile in my bathroom before and I just love it. Our large closet is in there and the doors are mirrors. ...

    Well I missed posting yesterday, but it was for a good reason. I was working on the flip side of frugality - earning income. I took my hooked rugs to a craft sale for the first time. I sold 7 of them! Granted, not large ones, but still SEVEN rugs. I also took some sewing and some homespun yarn. Sold some of those as well. I figure I brought in around $300. Not bad for the cost of the table at $42.50. I'll go again next year, more prepared. ...

  5. Sometimes it's a Trade, not a Win

    So today was an interesting day. I sold a stove by accident this morning. Yes, by accident. I received an email from a man last evening asking if my stove was still for sale. I'd already made plans to have it picked up by the ReStore, as it had been on sale for a month and I had company coming next week and needed it out of here! ReStore was going to charge me $30 to take it away. So I told the man in the email that he could have the stove for free if he got here before the ReStore guy (what ...
