I feel like my head is brimming with thoughts that I ought to blog about considering the current economy. More and more blogs I visit are mentioning the pinch in the wallet or unemployment or making do. I love being thrifty. It began back when we were making below the national poverty level for income and has carried me happily through the good and meaty years as well. Being thrifty doesn't equal being threadbare or cheap or unhappy. The truth is, you can't give if you are spending. I like that truth. I like giving.
I won't be changing the focus of home and family on Cultivating Home, but you can look forward to many more posts on how to be content and find pleasure living on less.
Some of my favorite cookbooks are from the early part of the 20th century. Each of them contains a section on frugal meals that housewives used on a regular basis with their larger families. Maybe that is why I am drawn to them! My video camera isn't the newest or best but it's functional. I'd like to share some of those recipes with you.
And I have this brilliant, borrowed from our great grandmothers idea to bring a return to the Victory Gardens. It excites me to the core even though I am not a green thumber by nature. Both of my parents are so I'll try to siphon some wisdom off of them to share with you.
