Growing up I loved Sunday mornings. My parents would make eggs, bacon, toast, and quite often my mother would make surprise muffins. We spent time together and enjoyed a good breakfast. This was so special to me because my parents were, and still are, self-employed, which means their work days were far longer than your standard 9-5 gig. As a family we did our best to have dinners together at the table each night, but let’s face it some nights it’s just not realistic. Work runs late, sports run through dinner time, and to be frank, at the end of the night we are all human, we’re tired, and we're just not always up to conversation nor able to give our best sharing and caring selves. As we got older Sunday mornings became hectic, we were either at a horse show, goat show, or all catching up on overdue work or rest. Before long Sunday morning breakfasts were few and far between.
Ok I have just spent that last 20 minutes pacing and cleaning trying to decide how to start this. I am not one to share too much, my husband and I are pretty private people. I know, so why am I writing a blog? Well I have been a homemaker for 7 years, during these past seven years I haven't just kept house. I bake and I craft I help my family with their businesses and family friends with theirs. I have couponed to make ends, and I make a whole 5 pound chicken last for 6-7 meals for 3 people and now 4-5 meals for 5 people. I get asked almost on a daily basis how do you do it? Well I'm not here with all the answers, and I certainly don't always land with a perfect 10, but if I can manage to help even one person then it's worth it. My goal with all this is to share our story and how we do it, as well as share some of the crazy and fun projects that my family and I do. I hope you take a minute to look around my site and check out some of my creations. I'll be adding a shop filled with goods made right here in Maine by myself and extended family. I'm working on a recipe log and many more things to come. this is a whole new adventure for me and I can't wait to see how it grows. Thanks for stopping by!
Living on a shoestring and making the most of the lemons
Life is not easy, we all know this by now, but life is what you make it, no matter how corny that sounds (rhymes and all). Some days you can't wait for them to just be over and others, why can't they last longer. So let's make the most of it, make the shoe string budget as long as you can and make the best darn lemonade you've ever had!
