    Today I give thanks for warm things. It is easy to complain about the cold, especially with temperatures so much colder than normal. The challenge is to focus on the positive, which is being happy for the warm things in my life. I am not one to deny bad things in my life. I am not going to...

    Does anyone have lighter recipes for the slow cooker that will work well with the warm weather we're starting to get? A lot of the recipes I have are a bit heavy (thick sauces, starchy, etc), but I'm still hoping to be able to use this timesaver! TIA!

    Okay, know we here aren't by far in the worst weather shape but to make matters almost comical.... Water froze up last night. Still don't have any at 4PM late afternoon. Instead of buying water I have some empty milk jugs that I'm filling up at friends and taking home. Hope it's unfroze by...

    In the winter? I find it is just my daughter in me in this house; my (our, now) bedroom is warm with a portable heater.... and the rest of the house is at 50..... you almost forget when you walk out from the tropics.... How low can the temp be set... to avoid freezing pipes...

    Well we just had out first snow fall. Anyway, I need to purchase some really warm winter socks. Normally I will buy the wool mens hunting socks to wear. I need socks that will keep my feet warm when I am waiting for the bus. I saw some at Famous Footwear. The reason I am asking is I see...

    I haven't worn a dickie (sp?) since I was a kid. Well I saw some at the thrift store for $.99 each. So I picked some up. Was sitting here at the computer thinking, boy am I cold. Then remembered the dickies and put one on. It really is amazing how warm you feel when your neck is covered...

    This weekend, DH and I sold a bunch of his junk at the local flea market, and after expenses we came home with $236.00. He gave it to me as a belated birthday gift. At the moment, it's sitting in my wallet, and I'm enjoying the feeling of possibilities for that money, probably more than I...

    Today is the first sign of spring coming. The temperature this afternoon is 15 degrees C (or 59 degrees F) and sunny! It's so beautiful outside that I opened my back patio door to let the warmth and breeze in. (I heard the other day that some of the trees are starting to bud!) Spring is...

    Hi! My husband and I are considering buying a space heater and have never had one, so we don't know what to look for. Our home has no other heating so it's been in the 50s Fahrenheit indoors this week and apparently will continue getting colder (this is our first full winter living here)...

  19. Question and Answer
    I don't know for sure if it will be possible, but it seems if we turn the heat down in the whole house and just warm the family room,(which is where we spend most of our time in the evenings anyway), this would really cut down on that burner running so much at night. Kinda funny when I think of...
