Some of the ways I feathered the nest this week include:
My soup of the week was pumpkin and sweet potato. I love this soup and that has been my lunches.
I altered three more skirts and have been wearing them (vs them hanging in the cupboard unworn!)
I did the same with three more scarves, reduced them and turned them into infinity scarves. Then I wear them! Actually have worn a different scarf every day since it has been cold.
I re arranged our fridge in a way that gives me an extra shelf. Much better!
We got bantam chicks! They are a grey blue colour. I have wanted these for a long time and saw an ad.... off I went up into the hills on a adventure!
I cut Andy's hair (for first day at the new office!)
Overall the last few weeks have been low in savings with the job situation, bathroom renovations and not being well. I know we all go through patches like this. Just as well we do make hay while the sun shines when it does! Actually it is a really good reminder. This is WHY we work so hard to get ahead... whether it is meals in the freezer, a well stocked panty and gift cupboard, an emergency fund or whatever. Suddenly we need them!
Now I hope we can get back to building them all up again.
I will be working on it!
Today the sun is shining. I have my biggest crockpot full of broccoli as that was on a big special. This will become soup of the week!
Chloe has her rescue chooks and to add to the numbers she got five more. (also reduced, this time they are x chicken farm chooks that you can buy for $5 each) Introducing new chickens into the chicken yard is always interesting. Chloe's favourite chook is white and fluffy. Her name is Thelma.
Well, Thelma does not like the new chickens!
This is Thelma avoiding all the nasty new inhabitants!
I hope you have had a good week. How did you feather your nest and get ahead?
Have you had times when you were so glad you were ahead due to illness, job loss or other things life throws at us?
How did you build back up after that time?
I wrote $90 in my Vicky Challenge. Next week WILL BE better! xxx
