Preparing for Retirement

Currently I am gathing information from the Internet and fellow Bloggers for the next step in our life.

We are waiting for our IRA's to pan out by the end of this year or middle of 2013 in order to retire earlier than most. Yes, the market is a roller coaster, but we are invested in commodies... real items not monitary debt.

This site will be for blogging about our new life away from the hussle and bussel of the fast-pace life in a city and the sales of my hand made items ranging from bird covers to gift cards.

Both my husband and I grew up in a simplier time and aquired many skills for us to become self-sufficient on a mini-farm in Hometown, USA.My husband was raised on a farm and has learned about growing gardens, maintening equipment, and taking care of farm animals. As for me, I learned domestic skills such as knitting, crocheting, sewing, canning, cooking, and mainly being raised in a family where being frugal was how it just was then.

Our new adventure will be just that, an adventure. We will start out small and grow GOING BACK TO BASICS. The slow easy life with some hard work.

I hope to get some good feedback on my blogs. I have never written a blog before only designed small web pages.
