Mason Jar Salads
Saturday, May 06, 2017      5 comments

I've been making mason jar salads lately. Not quite the way I've read about them, but they work for me. I cut up a bunch of veggies and mix them all up in a big bowl, then divide it into individual jars. I use veggies that I can either use... Read more
First week of May grocery shopping
Tuesday, May 02, 2017      1 comments

My first week's shopping is done. It should last more than a week, actually, but I may get something from this coming week's ads, if there's anything really good. Here's what I got: Swenson's - pork rinds - $1.99 3 dozen eggs @ $.75 per... Read more
May Grocery Budget
Monday, May 01, 2017      2 comments

My food budget for May is $150. That's just for me and only includes food, not toiletries, paper products, etc. I'd like it to include anything food-related I get for my garden, too, but it doesn't have to. I have a bunch of food, mostly m... Read more
Post-Easter Casserole
Friday, April 28, 2017      2 comments

I remembered a couple of days ago that I had made 16 hard-boiled eggs to take to some friends to decorate for Easter, and then it didn't happen. I still had all those eggs, and they needed to be used. I couldn't find any recipes using hard-boile... Read more

This blog is really hard to do! It's hard to see or do much in the way of kindnesses when you don't leave the house. Did you hear about the guy yesterday who jumped in the water to save a woman who had been washed off the shore by a monste... Read more

I didn't leave the house except to shovel snow, so didn't see anything. The neighbor across the street and I chatted as we shoveled, though. It does make it more fun if you have someone else out shoveling, too. I saw a big kindness in Decem... Read more

Nothing big. I was out shoveling snow on Thursday and the neighbor across the street came out to make sure I was ok. I had been piling snow on the half of the driveway that I don't use, and decided to try to move it off the driveway. He th... Read more

I called my senators today. First time I've ever called an elected official. I had it all written out, so no problem. Right? Wrong. When the staff person answered the phone I started hyperventilating and was practically crying. Don't know why. I... Read more

There's a really big kindness that I want to talk about, because it affects so many of us. And that's SparkPeople letting us low carbers have a place to meet here, even though our way of eating is not the way of eating that they advocate. Thank ... Read more

I took Russell (my dog) over to Mom's house this morning. I had offered to stop at the store for her but realized that it was too cold to leave him in the car, and he was so excited to go! So we went to her house, Mom and I played some Dice, and... Read more

Didn't leave the house today except to take Russell for a walk and to take out the composting. (The crust on the snow is so hard and thick that it held me up!) Not much opportunity to see or do good deeds/kindnesses when you don't leave the hous... Read more

Didn't think I'd have anything to report, so was going to dredge up something from the past. I'll save that for another day. But then when I took Russell out for a walk, I saw some lines in the snow. It took me a while to figure it out, but then... Read more

Not a lot going on. Not shoveling snow, so none of that to report. I kind of miss chatting with the neighbors. Folks were really nice/kind at various business type establishments. A woman at the library went to great lengths to help me find... Read more

Feeling much better today, and was able to see yesterday in a better light. Yesterday morning I called an acquaintance and asked her how to get involved in something I am thinking of becoming interested in. I was uncomfortable calling her,... Read more
