Well fridays are my early days from work and when I got out at 2:30 I decided to start my tax free shopping. We needed new clothes anyway. So my first stop was a small hospice thrift store on my way home. I found a wonderful jewel tone purple suede skirt and it was on a huge discount and cost me 70cents.. I also grabbed up a pair of $7 old navy jeans and a cinderella tshirt for Brooke.
When I got home I changed out of my work scrubs and we all piled into the car. We stopped at the hope thrift store which was awesome shopping for Brooke, I got her 2 long sleeve tops, a sweater, a beautiful tank dress, a couple short sleeve shirts, a pair of pants, 2 pairs of shoes (Disney princess light up sandals and a pair of boots) and 3 super cute skirts! I also got ronnie a couple tops.
Next the salvation army. I got myself 3 tops, 4 bottoms, Ronnie got 2 bottoms and 2 shirts, and brooke got a light raincoat and 2 books.. my total shopping adventure cost me about $100 that's a lot of goods for that price tag : )
I feel happy with my purchases!
So now we are home watching the heat lightning as I lay in bed typing this out on my phone suffering from a migrane : (
There's so much to do in my garden its slightly over whelming..
I need 2 add soil and compost to 3 of my beds, finish weeding, still need to paint the shed, I still need to build at least one more bed, plus try to find a manual push mower (reel mower) to mow out little patch of grass that's become like a forest after our mower broke, and this is not to mention plant all the seeds!!
I have also been thinking of planting a dwarf tree in the chickens area to provide them with summer shade, winter light, food for us and dropped fruit for the chickens to forage. After hearing many ideas on a hokesteading fourm I'm apart of many people reomennded the same type of tree.. a mulberry.. I'm going to do more research and talk to my momma but it sounds win win : )
Alright readers have a great rest of your day and stay tuned for this weekends posts : )
