This summer we have prohibitive gas prices. Our electric bills are jumping at least twenty percent because of said fuel costs. Food prices for the staples are rising accordingly. What fun!
My plan for summer fun:
Stop eating store bought food. I can’t afford to drive to the store anyway. Find new and exciting ways to use dandelions for salad greens. Millions of bunnies can’t be wrong. Make gardening a serious job as opposed to the fun pastime it used to be. Possibly learn the pleasures of canning. Certainly make own jams and such from farmers market items. Doesn’t that sound special?
Spend middle of day in the above ground pool we bought several years ago that is too small but what the heck, its water. Can’t afford the AC so we’re calling it the Aqua Excise Program, or the prune experiment.
Do house work before sun comes up because of heat.
Write…um…after dark when I’m done canning, jelly making and such, have put the kidlet to bed and convinced her sleeping with a fan is what she wants to do. Use found lantern for light. It’s romantic and should inspire the writing. LOL
You think I’m kidding?
