Sound Healing and Frugal Accomplishments
Though there's not a lot to report this week, I'm happy to be joining in with Frugal Accomplishments. Last week, I took a class that will go towards the CEU's needed to keep my massage license current. The class was on sound healing, at my alma mater, and they give a 10% discount on classes to alumni. I brought lunch, snacks, and tea each day. The instructor had a couple sets of tuning forks that students could buy, and I purchased one of them. They were the same price as online, not frugal but minus the shipping cost, which saved me $21.95. It was a fascinating subject, a wonderful class, and I'm excited to use the knowledge and tools.
After using lemon juice in recipes, I used the peels to start a batch of cleaning vinegar. Made kefir and yogurt. Cashed in Swagbucks points for an Amazon gift card. Harvested tromboncino squash I had let mature for seeds. Harvested tomatoes and okra. Made a dish with our corn, okra & tomatoes. We should be done using the A/C for the year, and hopefully it will be a few weeks before heating season begins. I colored my hair at home. Gave the pups some grated winter squash and chopped tomatoes that had blemishes and wouldn't last. Mended a shirt. Did a couple loads of laundry on a rainy day, and saved the dryer lint in TP rolls for fire starters. I made good progress on my frugal crafty project for next week's Fall Festival. We're off for a few days of rest and relaxation, with a couple of good folks minding the homestead. Be well, friends.
