Rural Ramblings of a Modern Woman

Sharing how I merge rural life with modern society…on a budget!


Hi everyone. My name is Amy Dukeshire and I am happy to share my thoughts and inspirations with you in this blog. I am a wife and mother to two vibrant daughters. My family lives in a small, but wonderful, rural community in Nova Scotia where I went to school as a child. I grew up on a fruit farm and have been surrounded by agriculture ever since. We have six cats and one leopard gecko, a beautiful big back yard and a strong sense of community.

Having been recently laid off due to a work shortage, I spend my time doing the usual wife/mom housework and baking, gardening (a little more every year), crocheting, reading (when there is time left to do it), teaching Sunday school and leading a wonderful group of Brownies. I do it all on a budget because, let’s face it, the reality for many rural families demands it!

I hope you enjoy my ramblings and find something interesting or of use from time to time.
