“Meat costs about three times more than vegetables yet yields sixteen times less nutrition…vegetables net you forty-eight times more nutrition per dollar than meat.”

Slow and steady wins the race!
While the men were here working on the driveway, I cleaned off the back porch from the cats. I threw away several of their blankets because raccoons like to come up there and mess with their stuff. The garbage man came on Saturday and hauled multiple bags off for this reason.
Taste of Home magazine, Treasures of the Pharos, Get Together with Gooseberry Patch, The Wellness Mama cookbook, and finally, Eat More of What You Love. I love getting stacks of new books to read.

You must do the things you think you cannot do.
~ Eleanor Roosevelt
I like this quote because it is so true. I can remember when I first started back to school in 1999 and thinking about how much math I needed to graduate, which was five math classes. For a person who didn’t excel at math, that seemed to be an insurmountable task.
But you know what? I took those classes, one class, one semester at a time, and I completed all those math classes. When all was said and done it felt good to be on the other side of it and have all of that behind me.
If there is something in your life that you want to accomplish, take it one step at a time and you can get there.
This is my favorite section to browse through because I never know what useful thing I will find.
Like this beautiful Pioneer Women salad bowl set…
I’ve had file folders on my to buy list for a few months now and found two of these at the sale. They are so pretty too.
I also found these alphabet dividers. I thought I needed some new hanging file folders and they had some at the sale for $7.00, which I thought was high. I left them and will check on the 50% off day to see if they are still there. But then I realized I don’t need them at all as the alphabet dividers did the job perfectly.
And a few other items such as another long spoon, a pineapple cat house, silver polish, pizza cutter, and Rubbermaid pitcher.
We bought gas this week and paid $3.23 per gallon.
