Hang out with me a little on a winter Saturday as I hang out in the greenhouse a little, do a few chores, spend a little time in the kitchen and record a podcast.

I'm having a low-spend winter. I resigned from all but one publication so my income has dropped drastically and I'm feeling the pressure. We have everything but beef in the freezer, shelves are full and cases of preserves are stacked on the floor. I think I need a pound of yeast and a gallon of vinegar and then we're good for the entire winter.

Every penny counts, especially these days.
Here are the ways I've saved this past week: I finished my afghan I was crocheting this week. My first gift I've made this year to help fill my gift closet. I bought a gift card from Swagbucks and was rewarded bonus po...

It really helps if you can live out of your pantry Robin. It's amazing what you can use vinegar for! I hope that things improve for you soon. Too much on the plate though can be so hard to handle. We have discussed watching our budget more carefully throughout more of this year. Although frugal I think we can do better.

A steaming bowl of fish chowder, a thick slice of homemade bread slathered with good butter, and a big spoon. That’s all I need to make a meal that leaves me wanting more even after I’m stuffed to the gills (you see what I did there?). 
Rich and hardy fish chowder and a slice of hot buttered bread or stack of crackers make a great dinner. Have a cup with a sandwich for lunch. #chowder

I think I know what made the tracks. What do you think?
What made the tracks we found Sunday afternoon? There aren't many clues.

Power's out but that's alright. I have heat, coffee, a story, knitting, seed catalogs - it's a perfect morning.

Dear Winter, I don't mean to be rude but you were early and consequently, I wasn't fully ready for you.

I was nervous about my first white water rafting trip. Jessie Herling, co-manager along with her husband Tom, visited with me the night before and helped put my mind at ease. I had such a great time on the river that I returned the following week to raft again. US Rafting is excellent! I'm hooked and looking forward to my next trip with them this summer.
