“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

Living Life ...
... takes time. We have been in a state of flux at the Thrifty Garden/Home. Nice weather prompted lots of planting in the garden .. then the rainy weather returned and made everything grow rapidly .. mostly the lawn and the weeds. Having only one nice warm day predicted this week, that meant doing two days worth of (killer) yard work in one day. With that out of the way for a few days, I've resorted to working inside most of this week. Getting comfortable with our budget .. and committing it to memory and practice ... less paper and theory ... discovering that $350 is quite a lean food budget for my family and may need some adjustments upward. Sometimes my ideas are greater than reality;)
