Frugal Doings for the Past Few Days

Made some maple flavored syrup.

Bought a 6 foot prelit Christmas Tree at the thrift store for $14.98 that is skinnier than our old one and will fit in the living room leaving more space for people.

Picked up a nice pair of dress pants and a pair of snow bibs (not pictured) for Bradley and a nice ankle brace for Jeff at the thrift store.

More thrift store finds...bags of silver unbreakable ornaments for $1.89 each and 2 Christmas dvds for $1.89 each.  The Winter Wonderland dvd is for Bradley and Isaiah.

Made a batch of delicious homemade rolls which were quickly raided, thus a picture of only the 6 that are left and that we will be having with dinner tonight.

Homemade turkey and orzo soup thawing out that I previously made and froze.  We are having this, along with the rolls, for dinner on this rather damp and chilly night.

Still harvesting kale from the garden.  The leaves around it have given it some protection from the cold.

Jeff is rebuilding and waterproofing a big dog house for Caesar so he has someplace warm and dry to get out of the weather when he is outside whenever we go somewhere.  He will be adding a pitched metal roof to it also.
