A Thrifty Week at Harvest Lane Cottage #13


It's a very short list this week because of our vacation at Beaver Lake in Arkansas.  We had a terrific time.  I'm also posting this late.  The trip itself was very thrifty because we stayed at a friend's lake house.

Here's this week's thrifty activity:

~ I hemmed a pair of jeans for my mister that had gotten ragged around the hem.

~ I made laundry detergent again.

~ I took boiled eggs, mayo, and homemade bread on our trip to the lake.  Our first meal was egg salad sandwiches.

Blessings,
Laura
Happy at Home

at the Lake!

  5. Going to the lake sounds delightful and egg salad sandwiches take me back to my childhood. Thanks for sharing your week.

Hello! I love it when y'all talk back!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I'm healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy. Please understand if I don't answer. This is all new to me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PRAYING FOR ME!!!
I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments.
