I cut zinnias from the garden to enjoy inside.
I harvested more Armenian cucumbers from the garden! I saved seeds to plant again next year.
I purchased two heads of cauliflower for $.99 a head the week before last (normally they’re around $2.49 to $3.99 here so I was very excited) to use in my mixed pickles. I was able to use up some carrots from the fridge and some onions from the pantry as well as using the cucumbers from the garden. I canned quarts of pickles. I also canned pints of relish.
I also harvested three butternut squash and a few Lemon Boy tomatoes from the garden.
Because it was quite humid, I was able to collect 3-5 gallons of water each day Sunday through Wednesday from the condensation from the air conditioner that I used to water potted plants. I can fit a one-gallon ice cream bucket under the pipes that stick out of the house near the ground, so when I go out to the recycle bin to toss something during the day, I check the bucket and empty it on the plants if it is full or close to full. I also collected shower warm-up water in a three-gallon bucket and used it to water potted plants as well.
I printed free geography worksheets for my third-grader.
I read an e-book from the library. I don’t know that I would recommend this one, as it was just okay and the ending/conclusion wasn’t there (the story just abruptly ended, leaving the reader left to imagine how it ended).
I purchased two winter dresses for myself online on clearance and also received free shipping.
I ordered some Christmas presents now, taking advantage of free shipping.
I looked over my grocery list and what I really need. I checked those things on my list for each store. I will get them when I need to go shopping again. I read the ads and there was nothing I needed this week on sale. I had hoped to buy a couple of cases of canned mandarin oranges on the caselot sale, but they were not included this time, so I did not need to go shopping.
I used some shampoo and conditioner from a hotel that my mom had given us.
