What a busy few days we’ve had! Went to a meeting yesterday, at of all places… a Starbucks! Yeah, I got a picture of myself with a Starbucks cup, because for those prices it’ll probably be a first and a last! LMBO! And no, I don’t like coffee, so what oh what did I get. Well, we got three hot cocoas for the kiddo’s, and then I got a Apple Caramel Spice something or other. Basically it was like hot apple cider, with a shot of caramel sauce, and a pinch of all spice in it. And it was Yummmyy!!!! But like I said, ching!
So I got to thinking all the things I’ve done this week for the price of that apple spice thingie. Well, I got basically four skeins of yarn, if you don’t count the shipping. (yeah, I bought more than four skeins, but four of them out of that big order cost as much as that drink). I started a garden tray full of seeds for my Spring garden for that amount of money also. I fed four cats for about five days for the amount that that one drink cost!!! 😛 I could buy enough Lipton tea bags and sugar to make 15 gallons of sweet tea for the price of that one drink! Yeah, I could think of a lot better things I’d like spending my $4 on than any more Starbucks drinks. 😛
And speaking of the gardening stuff! The kale, basil, and lettuce are just popping up all over!!!! I am going to spend a lot of my week transplanting a booooodle of plants. I bet we have over a hundred kale! In eight or so weeks we might end up with a kale chip explosion around these parts!!! Woohoo! 10 yo dd is in charge of the basil this year, so she is going to need to help out with a lot of the transplanting also. 15 yo dd is in charge of the mint and chamomile this year. Those haven’t popped up yet, so it maybe needs to be just a little warmer yet for those.
And for Valentines today, dh had a great surprise for me! He bought it a couple of weeks ago and actually kept it a secret from everyone, so it wouldn’t ruin the surprise! He got me a DVD of beautiful Florida beaches and sunsets at the beach! 110 minutes long of just the ocean rolling with waves, and beautiful FL skies! I didn’t know how much I missed those big puffy clouds til I saw them on the video!!!! The sky is huge and colorful out here in CO, but man oh man, the FL sky is just amazing!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
And today I have a few more items to add to my Etsy store. I am working hard on having at least a few items a week to post! Next week might be better than most, because I have a couple of baby blankets and a shawl that are all hopefully going to be done right around the same time! Then I want to start working on Market Bags after that. Farmers Markets are going to be opening up again soon, and I want to be ready to have these for sale, even locally if I can. But I’ll post them to Etsy just for good measure!
And now I am off of here to go knit for a while. Got a nice big pressure cooker full of vegies and broth for dinner. Just a nice ol easy peasy day!!! Life is good!
