First off I want to thank everyone who voted in my poll last week. I will be starting a new blog soon to share about the process of building our new house.
I had another busy week but less was going on in the garden. I have spent time pulling some weeds. It takes me a bit of time to get all of the garden areas weeded. I only pull what the chickens, ducks, and rabbits can eat at one time. They enjoy the greens.
I made a bunch of envelopes and finally used up the last wallpaper sample book. I got about six of the wallpaper books free several years ago at a yard sale. I also made quite a few birthday cards using items that I had on hand.
My in-laws took the crocheted baby blanket, hat, and diaper cover to my sister-in-law for my new nephew. Shipping the gift would have cost more than the yarn used to make it.
I went to a two day family reunion over the weekend. I took mini-cupcakes made with leftover batter and icing that I had frozen. I also took homemade rolls, brownies (from a box of mix on sale), and macaroni & cheese.
I have two flower pots that are in good structural shape but look horrible. I plan to repaint them. Since I was not particular about the color, I chose a can of clearance spray paint.
I finished a free course through Vintage Remedies and signed up for the course that was free with the purchase of an online bundle pack. I learned quite a bit in the first course and am looking forward to the second.
I focused meals on using up items in the freezer. I plan to continue to work on that for the next couple of weeks. I need to make a trip to Sam's Club and am working to make some space in the freezer.
