Weekend

April 13, 2014








 

Can I just say, it's been beautiful weather around these parts.  Mid 70's today as well as expected for tomorrow.  The last of our snow should be gone by the end of next week.

For those of you waiting for the bracelets to show up on Etsy, they are not there quite yet.  I continue to wait for the silver plates.  The bracelets are all made {upcycled belts}, and patiently waiting for their final touch.  I'm not sure what's up with our mail lately.  Our mail carrier passed away this past December.  Ever since then, whoever is the carrier now just can't quite get it right.  I never mail things from our mailbox, I always just drop it off at the post office in the next town over on my way through.  Well, in January, I wasn't going to go in town for a couple of days so I mailed 2 bills from our mailbox.  A month and a half later, the checks were finally received.  One was going to the same town we live in and one to the town next to us.  A month and a half!!  Now, I'm waiting for my "priority mail" box that should have been delivered on Thursday.  So frustrating.

It's been a tough weekend, which is why this will be a short post.  It started with me up at 1:30 a.m. Friday night vomiting.  Then, every single hour until 9:30 a.m. I vomited.  Yesterday was a bit of a blur since although I wasn't vomiting as much I was completely exhausted and worn out.  The strange thing is I wasn't sick.  I had no other symptoms.  My husband and I ate the same exact foods and he was fine.  Today I feel fine, just a bit tired and sore.

The Coop Girls are so much enjoying prepping my garden beds for me.  They adore their time in the sunshine.  We worked in the yard on Thursday, raking and cleaning it up, and the girls were cleaning up the garden.  We always knew when one found a worm because she would take off running with all the others in tow.  Around the yard they would go until the girl with the worm either lost it or was able to gobble it down.  A few minutes later the show would happen again with another chicken.

Hoping you're having a wonderful weekend and beautiful weather where you are!!

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.

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...

$100.00/Week Real Food Meal Plan - Week 7

February 11, 2018


If you’re just tuning in, this is an ongoing series in which I share our weekly meal plan as I (attempt) to convert us to a Whole/Real Food lifestyle.  Our grocery budget is $100.00/week for 2 adults.  Often I make 2 different meals because I am primarily plant-based and my husband is not.  Most of what we eat is made from scratch and any boxed, canned and/or frozen products follow the Real Food...
