December Blooms and Frugal Accomplishments
Today I'm joining in with Frugal Accomplishments. Last week, I mended the carrying case for my massage chair. Received a rebate for paint. Strained, added honey and bottled my first batch of Fire Cider. It's surprisingly tasty! I enjoyed holiday music on Pandora. I made a pumpkin pie with our pumpkin and eggs, cooked our potatoes with rutabagas, harvested and prepared chard, boiled eggs which we and the pups shared. Chopped the chard stems and leaves with holes for the pups, and put some chopped stems in the vegi broth bag. Harvested greens for the chickens. Did laundry with homemade soap, and hung one load on the line. Rain was expected in a few hours, so I dried the remainder in the dryer. Used scrap paper for lists.
Shopped at the discount grocery store, and found kalamata olives for $2, 3L olive oil for $8, pack of 12 toothbrushes for $1, natural cane sugar for $1/lb. Got 5/$5 evaporated milk at the grocery store. Made broccoli fried rice with our broccoli, carrots, garlic, onions and eggs. Added the carrot tops to the broth bag, and gave some grated carrots to the pups, along with a couple of chopped collard leaves with holes, and grated apples. Made Swagbucks daily goal several days.
