Independance Day Challenge, 2 Oct. 2011Posted: October 2, 2011
The past week or two I’ve been focusing on getting the house neatened up – back to where ‘clean’ is easy to maintain & piles don’t breed when I blink. Yule is coming, school has started, and the days are getting shorter. Everyone is enjoying the fall & winter recipes I’ve started making again. Next up, getting warmer clothes out. All I have right now is shorts!
1. Gardening: Nothing, just keeping things watered.
2. Waste not (preparations): nothing.
3. Want not (manage your stores): Refreshing my stash in Ravelry, so that I can use it as a reminder of what I have & where. Applying a bit more logic to storage locations as I go, and frogging projects I know I’ll never finish.
4. Build community: Met a new neighbor.
5. Eat the food: I’m actually planning meals lately – always a challenge for me. I found a recipe for the ground elk so one day soon we’ll have elk meatball sandwiches. Part of the focus has been to eat out the fridge/freezer – both are extremely full. I want to make pumpkin pie, and can’t, because there’s no room in the fridge for it! Three people can’t eat the entire pie in one sitting, after all.
6. Crafting: Did a few stash-busting projects, and will restart another hibernating project here shortly.
