MUSINGS OF A HOUSEWIFE but I thought it looked like fun so here goes... I think I'll go backwards just to review...since The Woodwife's Journal is only 6 months old, I'm posting the first line from the first and the last post of each month. Sprinkled in among a few rather mundane topics are a some herbal remedies, homemade personal care products, more whole food recipes and a few other tidbits that I think you might enjoy. It's been 6 months of fun learning about blogging and connecting with new folks who share some great ideas.
Hope you have a Blessed New Year!

Upcycling An Old Sock - My daughter had a favorite pair of socks that had stood the test of time. But on wooden floors, they're bound to give out eventually.
JULY - Falling Behind - Seems like it's been forever since I've been online. We're having some computer problems that have kept me from writing here lately.
