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.

I am behind on my blog reading due to being on the road for way too long, but it is so great to come back and see your great photography and read your calming words!

We discovered tromboncino squash this summer as a gift from a friend. We loved it and are looking forward to growing our own next year!
