I replaced the elastic in two pairs of sweat pants for my 3-year-old. These were hand-me-downs from my older boys. They’ve been sitting in storage for 11 years, so the elastic needed to be replaced. I had previously purchased bulk elastic on sale from Wawak for this purpose.
I kept the sprinklers and drip irrigation off all week because rain was expected. We received a measurable amount of rain over a couple of days.
I harvested lemons from the garden; we made lemonade and lemon meringue pie, plus I zested all the lemons we used and dried the zest. I made enough dried zest last year to make enough lemon pepper seasoning for the year, and I plan to do that again this year.
I also harvested pomegranates, chives, and basil from the garden.
I baked my own pies for Thanksgiving; I made lemon meringue, pumpkin, and pecan pies.
I picked up a turkey for $0.46 a pound at Winco when I went to buy potatoes and milk.
I redeemed 2200 Swagbucks for an Amazon gift card, which I used to buy Christmas gifts for my children.
Before buying new church shoes for my girls, we went through the shoes that we have. Church shoes are worn for such a short time and are in good condition because of that. We had shoes for three of my girls (one, that I bought last year, was a women’s size 4. This year the same daughter wears an 8! She’s 11 and it’s getting increasingly more difficult to find her shoes that she likes that are in a young enough style for her age when she has larger feet than I do. I did a lot of looking online for her but I didn’t find anything yet.) I’m glad that just one child will need church shoes for this winter.
We combined errands while driving to conserve gas.
I gave my husband a haircut.
