Join the Simple Living Homesteading Tribe

The Frill Free Zone Newsletter is a monthly update for all things simple living.  If you're into the homesteading or alternative building mindset, this might help give you some ideas and inspiration.

The Frill Free Zone - a newsletter for Homesteaders and Alternative Builders

My life is pretty simplified and pared down, and I want to share with you how it's done.  There are no fancy recipes using ingredients you have to order online from far away countries.  Everything is tested right here in my very own kitchen.

All the household tips you see here are trialed and there are tips for homesteading, like what kind of firewood burns the best, and how to store it for optimal results. 

Our tiny 500 600 square foot house and all the little outbuildings are described in detail on the site.  In the Frill Free Zone Newsletter I'll share other tidbits of information, and links to interesting pages so you can enjoy the lifestyle too. Most issues contain links to any new pages I've written (yes, it's just me) and older ones that are appropriate to the season.

I've expanded my interests lately - you may be able to guess that I'm all about dogs and creating their first class life, using positive reinforcement training (sometimes referred to as R+) and building the repertoire of games and interesting ways to make gear for dogs of all sizes and kinds. 

My own needs are for a service dog to help me with balance, and to pick up dropped items.  Stay tuned for more about my service dog candidate in the next few months.

When you sign up to The Frill Free Zone Newsletter, you get first dibs on any newly released e-courses or e-books. 

In fact, as my gift to you, just for signing up, you can download the free Applying Natural Fertilizers Guide. 

If you have any ideas of articles you would like to see, fill out the short survey (at the bottom of most pages on this site) and if you like to write, become a guest author! I have a few guidelines that you can follow.

Stop the  presses!  Due to a life-altering experience recently, I've decided to change horses in midstream. 

Now, in a totally new question and answer format, you can ask me your questions on anything homesteading.  I'll answer those questions in subsequent issues of The Frill Free Zone Newsletter.

We've also moved right across the country - late life crisis, anyone? Seems crazy to all our friends that we did this, but if not now, when?

Life is not guaranteed, and my health isn't improving any considering all that I do to protect it and nurture it.  So, a change is as good as a rest, according to the lore, so here is my change.

Contact me with your questions! If there are no questions, you'll get my stream-of-consciousness ramblings instead.
