{ spending hiatus - month 3: week 2 - the hoME edition }


As many of you know, my little family and I have been on a mission to try to reduce our spending and energy consumption and grow some of our own food. To simplify our lives and adhere to slow family living. How is it going you ask? Wonderful! The other day I paused to look around and see how it was going... the clothes were up on the clothesline, the windows were open to air out the house, and the garden was tended to. Greens for our nightly salads were handpicked by Samme from the garden and the rest of the veggies were from our local farmers via the market. The TV was only on late at night when we watched the Tour highlights after the kids went to bed. Simple is good.
ps - I'm so inspired by all of you with your urban homesteading successes too!
pps - No unnecessary spending this week! Although I think Henry would look spiffy in this.

I really want to put in a clothes line. We have only been in the house since december, but it is on the list for summer. I just have to figure out the best spot!

Thanks Paula - It is a work in progress! :) I'll have to post more pics but the right side (the stone was the original old stone cottage) that we renovated and then added onto... J :)
