Here's another picture of them to show you how many there were. All the white areas are swans.
Be still and know that I am God
~ Psalms 46:10 ~
THRIFTY THINGS WE DID THIS WEEK
Ran built this kindling bin from free pallets:
Got half a dozen free pallets for firewood and projects.
While out for our daily walks, we bring back branches and sticks that have broken off the trees this winter. Our kindling bin is just about full from doing this and plus we have found some larger branches in the neighborhood that are excellent firewood.
Since cabbage is priced so lowly as we approach St. Pat's Day, I made a huge batch of vegetable cabbage soup, the only thing I needed to buy was the cabbage and celery, everything else came from the pantry. I'm doing the cabbage soup diet this week to jump start my dieting. I've been on a plateau for weeks. It always works for me.
Brought in the dried hydrangeas from the bush trimmings to decorate with. You know I wouldn't spend good money on flowers but I still wanted some sort of flower arrangement.
We started our seeds. Most came from seeds we saved.
Went to t he doctor's and got a glowing report on my health. Good health is so vital to having a good life. Little things like daily walks, abstaining from junk food, and spending part of each day in quiet contemplation can do so much to help you obtain it and they all are free!
Finished one sampler and began another from supplies I had on hand. One will be a Christmas present. It's never too early to start thinking about Christmas presents, especially when you make your own gifts.
Packed away my heavy winter clothes and started getting out my spring ones. Hope springs eternal! I never bring out everything at once, that way, when I get bored with my wardrobe, I just have to "shop" in my attic for something new.
That's about it for this week. I will be taking a blogging break for a while, unless something truly remarkable happens that I want to share in the meantime. Hope you all have a lovely spring!
