All of the hard work in the garden is starting to pay off as it is producing well. This week we harvested squash, zucchini, cucumbers, onions, lettuce, potatoes, and herbs.
I bought 4 pounds (two 2lb packages) of country style ribs for just 39 cents. The meat was on markdown due to a fast approaching sale by date. I cooked one package and vacuum sealed the second.
One of my splurges is a coffee subscription for fair trade, shade grown coffee. My aunt gave me several packages of coffee beans so I have postponed my next coffee delivery.
My foot is finally healing, and I have been able to wear shoes again. My usual shoes are a bit too tight on the toe and area of the foot that were broken. My doctor had recommended that I try Crocs. I searched on eBay and found a pair in my size (women's size 4) for just $8. They do not look like they were ever worn. They fit well, are comfy, and are easy to slip on and off.
I spent several evenings reading in the backyard. Leo loves when I sit out there as he is happy to hang out with me. It is generally cooler than in the house plus I have plenty of free light to read by.
I used some yarn leftover from other projects to make two small gifts - a hat and a dish scrubbie.
It was a quiet week but often those are the best!
