getting away from winter for a bit

Well kind of anyway.  Here's what was on my needles.  I joined Karen over at Sew Many Ways in an on-line baby shower.  I decided to knit a baby hat out of the Knit Baby Head & Toes book.  I didn't have to buy any yarn, I just dug in my stash.

We're still trying to simplify our life over here and Amy over at Homestead Revival has a homemade drain cleaner posted.  Amy always has some great posts on frugal living.


Our well pump seems to be going out and tho we can take showers, washing clothes is out of the question.  I just might be getting snow and melting in on our wood stove to get water if it doesn't get fixed any time soon.  The "well guy" is supposed to be coming out on Monday.  Partly because it's really really cold right now, and partly because, we live in the country and small town life.

Simplify your life

We are still cooking on our wood stove every chance we get.  Why turn on our gas stove/oven if we have the wood stove going. 

So, I guess living without running water can't be all that bad.  Right?
