Tuesday's "Three"

May 07, 2013

3 Things Making Me Happy Right Now:
  1. I am finished at my job.  Yippee!!  I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful it actually is.
  2. Taking the dogs for morning walks at the park with my mom.  Although yesterday's walk completely exhausted them {a benefit I was hoping for}, it is a fantastic way to start our day and I get to see my mom a bit more too!
  3. Bits of green are popping up in my garden.

3 Things To Share From The Web:
  1. I've used "silken" tea bags quite a bit in the past year or so and never even had a thought that they could be made with plastics.  This article has certainly opened my eyes.  Yikes!
  2. Have you ever thought about the history of breakfast cereal?  This article is eye-opening, in a sense, because although I never actually sat down and thought about the industry of cereal once I read it all the bits of cereal facts floating in my head seemed to come together.
  3. On a much lighter note, Tanya from Lovely Greens has put together a post outlining how to make a strawberry planter from wood pallets.  Brilliant!

3 Things I'm Currently Working On For The Blog:
  1. I'm working with 4 amazing bloggers on a Homesteading series that starts next week.
  2. A how-to Homesteading series on basics such as making bread, making a braided rug, homemade cleaners, soaps and lotions, roasting coffee, etc.
  3. Some DIY projects.
Happy Tuesday!

12 Tips For Eating Real Food On A REAL Budget

February 15, 2018

1. Maximize Less Expensive Foods
Part of this tip is getting into the habit of eating in season because in season veggies are typically much cheaper than out of season. The other thing to consider is thinking about ingredients you and your family enjoy that are (either seasonally or year-round) cheaper and incorporating them more into your meals. For instance, carrots are a pretty inexpensive...

February 13, 2018

If you’re just joining in, the “Change Your Life In 2018” series is my quest to make some small changes this year. Rather than setting easily forgotten resolutions I wanted to focus on 12 changes that would help me learn and grow as a person. I’ve chosen to focus on one change per month so that it could not only become a more manageable goal, but I have a better chance at making these new habits...
