What a weird week. First you are down, then a few minutes later such good falls and you are thanking the heavens, then back down- sore right back up...all week. I am hoping to end on a high note.
First, some willow branch wreaths. I would like to add more to them, and after the wind storm today, I don't think that will be an issue.
Speaking of cheap...
Another free pile - a beautiful table lamp was scored. Pictures to follow.
I stopped at the discount grocery for some eggs at 3 dozen for 99¢. Now these eggs break my rule (I can't afford gentle farmed meat anymore, so I hold out by buying gentle farmed eggs) - but with $10 left in the grocery budget for the month of April and 4 eggs in the fridge, I put my scruples aside. I never have seen eggs this cheap, so I will go on it was a one time thing at a moment where I could really benefit. (And if you are muttering - whatever lets you sleep at night - I haven't been sleeping well - I doubt it is from that - but it might be a small, small reason). As I was leaving with my possibly guilt laded eggs, there was a cart of free strawberries. This place usually has a cart of free produce - that would serve as chicken food - so I usually walk on by - but that day I felt compelled to look - sure enough there were a few boxes that were in use/freeze that day condition, so I picked up a box (and froze).
Minor infractions this week included - a buggered knee trying out a new exercise, 2 loaves of the flattest English muffin bread (baked on 2 different nights) so is it the yeast (that froths well) or did my bread machine call it quits? A bean soup made from scratch that wasn't edible and a grumpy digestive system because apparently I can no longer treat my body like a tent with food - so back to feeding it as a temple. On the plus side, the smell of fryer grease is a total turnoff since Saturday.
Until next time, have an apple a day. It's a good thing.
