I cleaned out the rabbit house. This was free exercise and gave me a good amount of fertilizer to add to the compost pile.
I talked myself out of a $5 magazine subscription. It was not a favorite magazine, and I was happier keeping the $5 in my wallet.
I have been making my own herbal tea bags using bulk purchased herbs and disposable filter bags. It is easy to prefill the bags with whatever herbs I want.
I got more free exercise when I picked up the fallen branches from our pecan trees. Those went into a pile to be chipped into mulch later.
I did my best to make good use of our leftovers. I had a couple of extra baked pork chops. One was saved with other items for a meal for me while W was at work. I sliced the remaining one thin to top big salads for lunch. I also baked a lemon ricotta pound cake to use up some ricotta.
A couple of the tomato plants in the greenhouse were "bitten" by cold before W hooked up the heater. Since only the leaves were affected and not the stems, I cut off two of the suckers and brought them in the house. They went into a small jar of water in the kitchen window. I am hoping that they will root and put on new growth. If not I am only out a bit of my time.
I used the apple juice from boiling the apple peels and cores from last week to make four half-pints of apple jelly.
I packed W's lunch as usual This takes a few minutes of prep time but saves hundreds of dollars each year. I also make sure to use reusable containers so we are not spending money on disposable bags. W also takes a thermos with tea so he is not tempted to purchase sodas.
