200 a Month, Goals, & Menu

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We are starting to get some rain now and it is starting to melt off a lot of the snow ( we still have a ton of it though). So now we are starting on mud season lol. I am pretty sure it is knee deep down at the corrals and some places pretty sure you don’t want to venture into.


We had our first calf the other day was really hoping it wouldn’t be quite so muddy when they started hitting the ground. Don’t think that is going to happen though.


I started an EMR class ( emergency responder) a few weeks ago it has been so informative and I am loving it. Kind of thinking about taking a basic EMT class after this if I can fit it in.


Super great news this weekend Joleen and Skyler got engaged so happy for them and look forward to having him for a son in law. He is so good to her and so patient with her and that is huge lol. So now I get to help plan a wedding woo hoo.


We had an Earthquake this morning craziest thing ever. It was a small one but it has really made me rethink my deep pantry. I haven’t really planned for an earthquake. The way I have things stacked on shelves it wouldn’t take much to make a huge mess of things so I am going to have to work on fixing that.


200 a Month

I didn’t go to town this weekend so I didn’t spend anything. So  0 spent so far for March and that leaves me with 2245.80 for the year.



I haven’t got much done this past week so most of last weeks goals are going to be this weeks.



This week I need to finish up the oranges, grapefruits and the last little bit of apples. Get kombucha made pretty sure what I had brewing has turned to vinegar, which I will still be able to use but not drink.



This week I need to do some mending and I would like to make some bags out of feed sacks.


Fiber Arts,

 Would like to work on Joleen’s afghan but not sure how it will be to crochet till my shoulder is 100%, Joleen got me a knitting machine for Christmas ( it came from Germany so I just got it a couple of weeks ago) so wanting to play around with that this week.



I want to get some beeswax wraps made. And another batch of soap made. I want to start making swirl soaps which I haven’t ever done before. Also, need to get another batch of deodorant made.

I also need to do some work on the SW Farm to Fiber page.



Hoping I can get back to working out even if it is just walking on the treadmill.



I am starting lessons again so I need to get next month planned out.


What I am reading,

I am reading Siege of Stone by Terry Goodkind ( he is one of my favorite fiction writers) been waiting almost a year for this to come out.
