Happily exchanging ideas and food recipes to the working house wife. Making a good day better, and keeping the faith. I have kids, dogs, horses and chickens. I recently lost my elderly parents, 4 months apart, my close friends moved away and Im just starting out with a new piece of property that needs everything to start living on it. Fences, septic (partial), electric. Barns, home and yard. I have never been a frugal person, but now feel I should start.
