  1. Homesteading and gardening
    I moved in to our current place in August. I took over what was left of the garden. This year, I have planted a few things. They are coming up okay. But then, I discovered a few orphans. A swiss chard plant came up on its own. An onion and possible a potato plant. These things survived two...

    Being practical I am going to assume that we don't win the big lotto. Back to the real world - something that could very much happen... You find a $100 bill lying on the ground. No one is around, so it must be yours. How are you going to spend your new windfall? I think I would stash it...

    I have found a disadvantage to my minimalist wardrobe. Had three pairs of bottoms/pants ( 1 cords, two pairs of jeans) Last month my cords blew out. They had become to thin and well just gave up. I decided not to replace them cause it looked like Spring would come early this year. lol So that...
  6. Sewing
    I found this neat blog about a lady who refashions clothing. Most items are given to her or picked up from a thrift store. She turns them into wearable clothes. Some of her completed items are really cute, some items not so much. Anyway, her goal has been to refashion 365 items in 365 days...

    I'd really like to recommend it to others and am planning to give it as a gift to a few young folks I know! The title is "Debt is Slavery and 9 other things I wish my Dad had taught me about Money" by Michael Mihalik. I bought it used on Amazon. It is easy read and pulls no punches. Check it out!

    My elderly mom has a friend she spends a lot of time with, and he usually joins us for holidays including Christmas. We like to include him in gift-giving, but he's VERY difficult to buy for. You name something and he will not be interested in it. But he likes to read, and specifically, he...

    This might be a bit of gallows humor, but I got called up for the jury pool. Not even actual jury duty yet but for the pool they call people up from. It is for the months of October, November and December. I found the best excuse. As I've explained on other threads, I'm pregnant and the baby...

    When I was 16 my Best Friend ran away. I never heard from her again. That was 17 yrs ago and today she found me on Face book. I am so happy to hear from her but I'm also sad to find out that she never told me the worst part of why she left. I guess we all have to kept our secrets but I wish I...

    Have not used this website, not sure if I'm interested in ordering whole inserts or not, but thought it might be helpful for those of you who buy lots of papers each week, but only for the coupons. Much cheaper this way! Whole Coupon Inserts You can 'subscrbe' and order 10 of each insert...

    For years, I've wanted to find a deer antler to bead on, but no such luck. I even had a chat with Bucky about how nice it would be if he would drop an antler for me to use, but he was not receptive to that idea. So I've just waited. It's not like I don't have any other bead projects to do...

    I've been wanting a dehydrator for a long time. I haven't shelled out the money for an excalibur because I was concerned I wouldn't use it enough and it's quite big to store and not too cheap. Anyway, I saw a new dehydrator at the thrift store. It's an Oster which are not expensive dehydrators...
