Frugal Holidays

So one thing the hubs and I do for holidays is make our own cards for each other. The hubs will make a lovely card with what he wants to say in it. I know that he took time to make it and it says what he wants it to so I treasure it. Just a little thing that saves you $8(two cards) a holiday that to me is way way more special than the store bought version. His cards usually are made with some photoshop elements while mine are drawn with each of us using our strengths to show the other one how much we care. I love these cards because he usually will work in some inside joke into it so I'll be laughing out loud while reading.

Just Thinkin

In 5th grade we had this contest at school.  It was a fundraiser to sell a ridiculous amount of magazine subscriptions or something.  For every subscription you sold you got points towards a prize catelog.  Well I got the most points and picked a chemisty set, yes I was/am a nerd.  One of my first experiments was to take whatever was in the fridge (some new england clam chowder) and make it do something.  Well I found a way to turn that chowder pink and I was so excited, I went down the road to show our neighbors.  I'm sure they were thrilled.   I was thinking this week that this was kinda like what has happened to the farming industry in the past 50 years.  They have found that adding a little bit of this or that deters pests, yeilds bigger harvests, etc. But just like that pink chowder, I'm not eating that stuff either.  Go organic :)
