It's Nov. Money is tight between the higher utilities and the holidays coming up. Add to that my medical bills from this last hospital stay.
Since I had already filled the pantry for eating from it through this winter, that is in good shape. Will have to buy meat for the holiday meals and a few odds and ends but that bill will be well below the budgeted amt for the groceries.
Mean time I have harvested the last of the lettuce from the garden and some of the horseradish. I still have apples and pumpkins in storage to process but they are holding very well. I did the last of the red tomatoes in the oven for slow roasted tomatoes for this winter. I have a few green roma's that look to be turning red before Tday. I wished they would last to then but probably won't.
I started my writing with National Novel Writing month over at www.nanowrimo.org
I mended a couple shirts and a skirt
I checked through last year's left overs for Christmas gifts to try to use up those crafts.
I started working on this year's Christmas gifts. Goal is to be done wrapping presents and decoration on Dec 1st. so I can sit on my butt and relax or go visit others and sit on my butt there.
May you and yours be well and healthy through this season.
