I’m wanting to start weekly features here for a couple reasons. One of them being I need a bit of accountability as well as wanting to have a direction the blog is going. I like sharing what’s in my CSA box, as well as I’d like to share more about our livestock! So hopefully every Friday I’ll have a little something here to share!

We want quality, healthy, local and organic if possible food! I only spent $50 last week, so I had $90 for this week. I spent $41.35 at Country Grocer The celery and cashews were … Continue reading Grocery shop!

The thrift store was closed for two weeks and I couldn’t go for a week before that. I’d been dyyyyiiiing to do some crafty projects that I needed supplies for! We don’t really have a craft store here, so you make do with what you can find at the thrift store until you go off island.
