In the Beginning


Not sure who, if anyone, would be interested in the ramblings of a widowed Hispanic/Native American woman in a New Mexico rural community.  Nonetheless, several friends have suggested I start a daily blog because they are curious how someone can survive on about $400 a month, yet eat well and be relatively comfortable.  First off, let me say that country life is not for wimps or the lazy.  The day normally begins at or just before sunrise and ends about 9-9:30 at night — when most folks join the party.  So, here goes!

Today is going to be somewhat lazy — with only laundry to do, patching the carpeting in the bedroom and getting this blog started.  Tomorrow should prove more interesting!  If nothing else, I’ll get a picture of the ranch house I’m living in to post for tomorrow.
