2011 Harvest Report

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

New Year’s Resolutions for 2011. Some of you may think that this post is late in coming but I just picked my last bell peppers and tomatoes two weeks ago. I did have to move them into the garage with a grow light in order for them to ripen since it had started getting cold here, but the patience paid off because they are delicious.

Planning for Christmas 2011

Family Balance Sheet

Have you started to think about your Christmas spending for 2011? Does the sight of a Christmas tree make you want to hurl? Does it make you cringe to even think about Christmas? I can just hear some readers screaming, "it is 347 days away for crying it out loud". What makes me cringe is realizing how much we spent on Christmas in 2010. Since we use credit cards for almost all of our purchases, we are paying the bills now for our Christmas presents.

Related posts: Yakezie Carnival October 16, 2011- Growth Edition. Welcome to this week’s Yakezie Carnival. This week I as your host have chosen the theme of “November” and here is why.
