Going Minimal

We're trying- hard!- to do it.

(Image from How to Live In Poverty And Still Have It All)

Partly due to necessity (the transition to becoming self-employed can sure be taxing at times), and partly due to it-just-plain-sounds-like-common-sense-to-us!

Here are some great blogs/ articles I'm relying on these days, for information as much as inspiration, as we try to "sally forth" into a more simple, frugal, and minimal way of life.

(although I wouldn't say we're living in poverty, I like what she means!)

Is this- living simpler, being frugal, going "minimal"- something you are trying to do too?

Something you already do?

If so, how?

Do you have a place or a blog online that you turn to for inspiration, or help, in doing so?

I'd love to read your thoughts and comments!

Just Popping in Quick...

to say Hi!

I'm in the midst of attempting to preserve a mountain of tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, yellow squash, green beans, jalepenos, and, did I mention tomatoes?!


It's a little busy around here, what with all this canning & freezing & infant and toddler caring & trying to figure out how to get us all ready and prepared to go to our special church convention next weekend.

Plus the few sewing projects I had hoped to have done by then- yep, I'm most likely going to have to let that little dream go!

Anyway, in my few moments to sit at the computer and have just a "moment" to take a mini break, I'm browsing through this new issue.

Fun, fun, fun!

Somehow, as much as I love summer (especially after all the cold and damp of winter and early spring), I SUPER LOVE fall!  :D

I think it has to be my very favoritest (yep, that's a word!) season.

Cool, crisp, warm during the day, just enough of a chill during the night to make it cozy sleeping weather, and all kinds of good food- apples, pumpkins, squash- Yummy!  

Somehow, there just seems to be something "fresh" about fall.  We're not quite there yet, but it's coming- oh, it's coming!  :)

Hope you're enjoying this season's beginning-to-change time too.

In celebration, I'm putting up my fall wreaths on the door today.

Here's to a beautiful new season!
