What writer doesn’t have a dream desk and office setup? Unless they already have theirs, of course. I have a dream space in my mind.
On the surface it seems easy enough, doable. In the small house I want it will be set up on the living room side of the wall between that room and the kitchen, near a window.
The desk will be a long one, with one end being set up as a normal desk for sitting at. The other end I want raised, with a stool. Why raised? Well, because I have problems sitting for long...
Some of you will remember when I used to publish this newsletter right here on the blog. It was a long time ago. I’ve tried two other platforms for publishing since then, but neither was the same as posting straight to this blog. So I am posting here again. It feels more comfortable. The way it should be. I will be combining all the old newsletter issues and other items into...
I have an idea for the Frugal Recipes blog, and I’m wondering how many of you would be willing to help me out. I don’t have all the details worked out yet, but what I want to do is feature readers every-so-often who are trying to keep it healthy on a tight budget.
If this is something you are actively doing, and are willing to share tips, grocery shopping experiences, photographs, your own recipes, and maybe some other things, please email me at:
Explain a lit...
Sounds strange, doesn’t it? But hear me out.
I don’t always shop with a list, especially if I’m on a tighter than usual budget. Why? Because I can shop, finding the items with the best prices, and create meals from those foods when I get home.
Does this sound about right to you?
I was reading an article over on Lendedu.com, The Cost of Christmas in 2017, and some of these figures and stats jumped out at me. I do not spend that much on any given Christmas. I just don’t have that kind of money.
Memes. Some are kinda funny; many I don’t even find interesting. Personally, I can live without them. But Zowie tells me I need some for the Facebook page. Apparently, from what I’ve read, I should post them at least a few times a week. Sigh. Okay, I’ll learn to make some and post them every so often.
Brainstorming: A viable avenue for success. This can be done alone, with another person, or as a group. Whatever works best for you. I brainstorm on my own most of the time, and once in a while I’ll throw ideas for a blog or something out to my daughter Zowie while we’re doing a video chat.
Food is an important factor in whether we are successful or not. If we cultivate bad eating habits, we wont be at our healthiest or have the motivation to continue with work during severe illness. Even three days of being sick can set us back weeks, meaning we aren’t doing what we can for ultimate success.
I’ve done this minimally, mainly in my head, for the past several years. I’m going to have to record all of it, though, because I keep adding more and more stories to Tales from the Mountain and Tales from the Woods, and now I have Tales of Magick. It’s getting more and more difficult to keep things straight. This winter may find me creating maps, filing info...
There are so many ways in which a single mom can build a successful career, from being the best damn personal care product seller to providing summer camp for the children in her neighborhood. The ideas are endless. Are you looking for a way to build a rewarding career?
I’ve been thinking about bundling the #CampSeries for some time now. Still offering them separately, but bundling them together with the diary entries and any other material I might come up with so readers who want to can have the entire set at once.
There are many ways in which you could expand on your chosen career, from writing a book for your self-help blog to offering card-making classes to your scrapbooking clients. The ideas can seem endless, when you take the time to sit and work things out on paper.
I was going through pictures from yesterday’s walk while working on the posts, deciding what I can use here on the blog. It’s been so cold I haven’t walked in a couple of weeks. With my asthma, extremely low temperatures are a no-no for me – I’ve been getting rides to work...
