I’m not a big fan of Al Gore, lol, and I’m getting a little tired of him shaking his finger at people! But I am 100% in favor of conserving energy and being thrifty and resourceful. I hate waste! And it seems that whenever I plug in my behemoth old vacuum, the lights in the […]

Kids are out from school today. Even though we homeschool, we stick to a regular “school” schedule. So my kids get summers off (and I do, too!). We work on projects during this time– gardening, home remodeling, etc. I haven’t started any projects yet, due to lack of funds and time. I’m REALLY hoping I […]
