Ciphers From Cindi
It’s been a slow cooking week. Partly because we’ve been eating a ton of leftovers. After each meal we prepare, I take a few portions out, freeze them and save them for later. For example, we’ve been having a few taco nites this week from a batch of turkey chili I made last month but […]
Gas Shortages. Food Shortages. Inflation. Unemployment. War In The Middle East. Where Do We Go From Here?
We seem to find ourselves in a bit of a quandary lately, don’t we? Statistics came out yesterday morning that inflation, as set by the Consumer Price Index, is high at 4.2% (click here). Not since 2008, twelve years ago, have we seen numbers like this. With no end in sight. It’s not anyone’s imagination […]
I was a little hesitant re-starting my garden this year. I still have produce in my freezer from last summer. Why would I want to grow more fruits and vegetables this summer when I still haven’t consumed the stuff from last summer? The answer came to me when I went food shopping and saw the […]

This past winter was very hard on our property. Lots of trees fell down. Lots of trees died waiting to fall down. Hubby had to do a clean sweep and cut down most of the dead trees so as not to fall on the house. It was an arduous task. One that needed help. So […]
I had a very productive week, this week. I did a lot of things that were either free or saved me money. First off, hubby had to go to the DMV office in Kingston this week to renew his license. I tagged along for the ride and to spend his wait time walking the business […]
I need a new couch. Or at least I think I need a new couch. This past year, since we were stuck inside our house, we tended to use our living room more than I wanted to. We live in a 4 room house, that consists of an expanded kitchen and dining area, one bedroom, […]
