I had a little bit of birthday money still left from Mom and fell in love with these earrings made of two of my favourite shapes: circles and stars. I ordered them from Gem Passion Jewellery on Etsy. It's so lovely to get tangible beauty in the mail!
So. Funny Story.
Last week I realized I was buying a lot of berry/yogurt/granola thingies on break. I though - I'd love this with more fruit, maybe I should make my own.
Being me, I had to price it out in money and yum and energy factor.
Money: week 1 was about the same, but I will not have to buy granola & honey again right away.
Yum: I wanted and got more berries, but still would have liked more. Berries are expensive. And yummy.
Energy factor: This added to my regular weekly shopping & chopping plus DAILY prepping, carrying & doing dishes. And I stayed at work instead of getting 'out'. UM. Wha?
So - I'm not sure how much trade off this. In the long run I might save a bit, but not tons especially if I get more berries. Also, I kind of have this as a snack - and I'm not even sure I need that much for a snack. I'll likely continue to experiment with it next week and see how it goes.
Just been napping and very depressed. No Crafty Thursday, no energy. Starting to feel like it is a waste of time but maybe I'm just gong through a phase. I just know that I hate snow and freezing rain in March. Sucks the life out of me.
