not buying it - week 7

thanks again kathie for the button/banner!

this week found me spending more than i have in awhile but mostly on gardening goods which i see as an investment in my food and medicine future. i need to start filling this out daily because by the end of the week, my brain is mush and i can't remember what i did all week.

clothing

-started a mend pile. need to get busy.

food
-harvested morels, asparagus, weeds! for salad...

household
-reusing plastic bags for trash bags

utilities
-diligently shutting off power strips each night for computer/dsl and tv/dvd player (this is especially important right now while we are incubating eggs and raising chicks with grow lights which sucks the electricity)
-making sure lights are off when we are not in the room

gifts
-

exercise/self improvement
-knife throwing
-hooping
-saw krishna das in person. normally, i would put this under weaknesses but it was such a spiritual experience for me that i think it was very worth the 25$. i wish he'd visit every week, or month at least!

homestead
-

education
-

weaknesses
-bought dinner at whole foods. $21 for the two of us the night of krishna das (see i had to fit it in as a weakness somehow!!)
-bought herbs: rosemary, sage, lavender, pansies plus pansy and poppy seeds

purging
-packed up a box of books to get rid of, misc. other items as i cleaned
-signed up for paperbackswap and cdswap so i can get rid of books and cds i don't want anymore and get some i do want!
