Climbing back on the wagon

It seems that if things aren't tight around here we don't watch every penny, then we spend until all those little pennies are gone.

So instead of beating my head against the wall of everything we have done badly in the last 2 weeks, I'm just going to hammer out a new plan. and kick myself in the rear to stick to it.

Why it is important to stick to it.
-I want a home
-I want a garden
-I want livestock
-I want to live in the country

-No tvs on during the day
-Eat every meal at home. No matter what
-Use homemade laundry soup
-No unnecessary driving
-Follow daily routine
-Give 100% at work
-work on cowl on wednesday
-photo a day


  1. We all have our setbacks. Sounds like you have the right attitude to turn things around. Good luck!

  2. I feel like we've been spinning our wheels for SO long. Its frustrating to be in this rut and not see an end in site OR to see an end and know its not the way you want it to go. But I keep telling myself, we'll get through this and it'll all turn out how its meant to be. I just have to focus. Just keep plugging away and don't give up!

  3. Best wishes as you set out to fulfill your new goals!!

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

[Guest Post] Summertime Blues

Today’s post is a part of the 20 something blogger blog swap. This post is written by Kelly over at Insert Clever Title here. Which by the way, why didn’t I think of that title?! It’s awesome, Kelly! She has a great blog and I am totally hooked. I have been reading it all day. She has a great writing style and outlook on life. I’m very excited to have her as my swap partner. This is the first every guest post here at Frugal Farmhouse, so I’m a little, ok a lot excited! Also when you check out her blog, you get to check out my post on saving money in the summer.

Something about summer has lost a bit of its magic for me. I don't know if it was the summer that I graduated from college, and was suddenly, jarringly thrown into the Real World, or if was something that had been sneaking up on me for years before that.Summer vacation doesn't exist for me anymore.It makes me both sad and, admittedly, a little bitter, to lose that sense of freedom. My reward for making it through all tho…

One Month to love book review

This book is divided into 30 short chapters that cover all different aspects of relationships in your life. Some people are more easy to love than others, and this definitely helps with the difficulties involved in some people. Some things in this book are very predictable. Such as focusing on the person that you actually with. In the age we live in, it is often easier or more convenient to 'play' on our phones or computers, instead of paying attention to the people that matter the most.  Each chapter ends with a challenge which includes questions or things to think about and consider. While much of this book is just reiterating what we all should be doing to maintain and straighten our relationships there are some surprising ideas. One that stood out to me is the chapter entitled. ' Practicing the art of risking awkwardness'.  Included in this chapter is the idea of swallowing your pride and facing the uncomfortable stage where something has happened and usually run …
