Welcome to another
Thrifty Week at Harvest Lane Cottage!
Each week I share ways I've saved money, my thrifty and frugal projects, and my blessings from God.
I am so glad you dropped in for a visit today—or tonight!
Please say hello! I'm always looking for new blog friends!
My husband was the thrifty one this week! On Saturday, our van wouldn't start. He found it was a very, very dead battery. He bought one and installed it himself. It was a lot of money, but we didn't have to pay the mechanic. Late Saturday night, our plumbing backed up terribly. He stayed home Sunday morning and fixed it himself saving us at least a hundred dollars in plumber charges.
Well, I am under house arrest. Giggle. Not really, but I am supposed to stay home as much as possible. I'm under neutropenic precaution, because my blood counts are too low. That means I need to be extra careful of germs and be a homebody. It's a little discouraging, but I thank God that I've not been this way the entire time. In a month, chemo will be done. Thank you Jesus!
It's been a rough week. I was surprised since the first few days after chemo were better than usual. Ah well. Nurse Walker says it's because the effects are cumulative. Speaking of which, I love Nurse Walker. We even talked knitting yesterday after my appointment, and she showed me her latest project. I used to go to church with her ahem years ago.
So, not much on my thrifty list this week, but we shall go on. Next week might be much better since I know I'll be at home.
