The Frantic Woman's Guide to Life is a goldmine of tips for those of us with too much going on in our life. Whether you work at home or at the office, have one kid or four, you can take the advice from Mary Jo Rulnick and Judith Burnett Schneider and apply it to your own life. This isn't a lofty guide to simplifying your life while nurturing your body and soul, yet it's much more than just a book full of tips on how to use baking soda. The tips are geared towards making life easier for US-for the mom, the wife, the woman who tries to do it all. You'll find tips to manage your day to day activities, special "hidden gems" that are highlighted because they are the tips that make you go " Ahhh...that could work!"

The Frantic Woman's Guide to Life is divided into the introduction- which gets you started, and then it goes month to month. How many times have you read an article or book on organizing and then tried to do it all at once, then gave up when it was too overwhelming? Tackle ONE month at a time and apply the tips and suggestions. Don't try to change overnight. That's about as practical as the famous cabbage soup diet-you're good to go for a month, and then you fizzle out and return to old habits. Use this book the way it's meant to be used, pick out the gems that apply to you, and you'll be on your way to a simpler, more organized life. The authors have a friendly, down to earth style that will make you comfortable listening to their advice and you can tell they speak from experience.

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
