Eating: Fried What, Now?

Most times when it comes to shopping in a rural town, you don’t stumble across anything too interesting. But occasionally you’ll find a gem that you’ve never tried before. That was the case for me this week when I found a  pack of Guavas at my local supermarket- and for just $3 USD. Continue reading “Eating: Fried What, Now?”

5 Lies You Probably Believe About Cooking

Occasionally my friends send me posts from Tumblr, and for a moment I have to stop and laugh at the naivety of inexperienced people who definitively think they know everything.

Let’s Play 20 Questions

The wonderful Courtney of At Home with DaynesWife recently posted this group of questions and invited her readers to answer them for themselves (after reading her own answers, of course).

Why A Homemaker?

A long while back now, I wrote a post about why I do what I do- referring to being a Homemaker and Stay at Home Wife. That post was written in response to a young lady (who has since deleted her blog) who had an almost terrifying vehemence towards Housewives that I am all too familiar with, having been that exact type of person with those exact views in the past.  Continue reading “Why A Homemaker?”

The Complexity of Being

I trawl through various Feminine tags quite often- whether it’s Femininity, Feminism, Gender Traditionalism, or any related tag that will deliver the content that I crave. During one such trawl at one point, I stumbled across two articles with a similar theme to them: That Femininity is weakness.

How to Take Care of Your First Camping Supply Box

Yesterday I talked about how to put together a basic Camping Supply Box– and what basic items you’ll generally need in it. But there are a few things I missed, that I’d like to go over with you today. Namely about what not to put into your box, how to keep it organized, and how to care for it even while you’re not camping. Continue reading “How to Take Care of Your First Camping Supply Box”
