I went to my bank account to check it, and was hit with the reality of what I wrote yesterday. I wrote about being a good steward by being economical. Two lines of charges right next to each other, coming out of my account, happened to be nearly identical in the amount charged. The first…

Minimalizing My Garden I woke up this morning, took a shower, and read my Bible. I checked my Facebook page. I’m too cozy to get up and put the roast in the crock pot for dinner, so I’m making another blog post. I’m doing something productive, right? 😀 I’m a big lover of diversity, and…

With Bated Breath…
