My job as a House Manager.

    I love waiting in dental or doctors offices. I am the one person that has no problem when they are running late. If I have no children that is. I bring a book and enjoy that quiet time, amen! The other day I waited my turn for a teeth cleaning and enjoyed some time reading Home Economics by Mrs. Sharon White. The entry was about a homemakers’ worth in dollars. We have read many articles on this and I have even discussed this before. We add up the salary of a driver, cook, maid, secretary, teacher, butler, nanny…or … Continue reading My job as a House Manager.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!! All books .99 cents to the end of January. Let’s set some goals!

    It’s been a busy and productive year for the Singh family.  We purchased our first home, which was a blessing and miracle right there.  Arjan started homeschooling.  I’m learning how to build my own food forest and tiny, mini farm.  We have a new community and that includes all the amazing people I’ve met on this blog and now the YouTube Channel. It’s time for gifting!  I love giving things away but I’ve already done that recently so I’ll put all the books at .99 cents since I can only do freebies every so many months. I’m setting … Continue reading Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!! All books .99 cents to the end of January. Let’s set some goals!

Return of the old fashioned housewife.

. I have created a book with a year’s worth of my blog write-ups focusing solely on homemaking, homesteading in suburbia, and living a more sustainable, slower paced life filled with old-fashioned touches. It is a bountiful dose of advice and inspiration. It will be free all week! Continue reading Return of the old fashioned housewife.

Homemaking made easy and fun.

So, I’m finding the inspiration bug is coming on.  I’ve been immersed in writing and balancing the home life, along with not missing a moment with my boys.  They are at that delicious age of 2 and 4 and everything is sweet and pure and funny.  I laugh many times in the day because of those two and then at night I sleep with one boy tucked under each arm.  Yummy! I am working on two more books, blogging my brains out, and keeping my 860 square foot home clean.  I’m also back into all the frugal, schamugal stuff and harassing … Continue reading Homemaking made easy and fun.

Writing that novel, homeschooling those little people, buying that castle.

I am blogging today for a few reasons: one is that I actually have some down time!  Unbelievable.  The other is that I can’t work on my books because my spirit is off navigating the world for a new camp site.  The last reason is that I am filled with excitement and nerves and can’t just hang out at this time. I am a writer and building a career slowly and painstakingly.  I am also a mother and homemaker.  These are my favorite positions and of greater value than the author job.  The author job is for fun and because I … Continue reading Writing that novel, homeschooling those little people, buying that castle.

Creating your home as a sanctuary and for very little…or free.

Our homes should be our families sanctuary.  Each day we go out into the world to shop, play, go to school, work, and other activities.  If we have a good mindset, meaning our minds are fairly positive, our vibration we exude is a happy one…we will have a good day out there in the wild.  But the world is busy and some of us live in cities that are thick with the webs of millions of people’s thoughts, energies, their stuff that exudes from their very beings without awareness.  When there is big trouble in the world, everyone feels it … Continue reading Creating your home as a sanctuary and for very little…or free.

Becoming a Housewife.

What a great memory it is for me, the day I became a housewife.  I think I’m more fond of those memories than my wedding day.  I was working full time in the offices of Living Light Raw Food Culinary School on the coast and it was getting to me.  I had been working outside the home since I could legally work.  I always held two jobs and classes at whatever local college and then on the holidays I would get an extra job.  Mostly I did this to pay off debt, but also to keep busy and stay out … Continue reading Becoming a Housewife.

Choosing to stay home and making it work on one income.

I quit working in the mainstream and started my career as a housewife a couple months before my first son was born.  I was thrilled!  I had been working for other people and companies since I was 15 years old and I had carried two jobs for most of that time.  Mainly to get out of a huge debt I had gotten myself into by the time I was in my early 30’s. We were prepared for this moment.  I had paid off all my debt and we owned one car that was also paid off.  I refused to get … Continue reading Choosing to stay home and making it work on one income.
