|The view of the coast of Mackinac Island MI.|
We took food to cook while we were there. I'm so glad we did because much to the delight of the children we were in the middle of nowhere. Perfect!
I bought the tickets for the ferry to Mackinaw Island for half price on Black Friday last year (Star Line Ferry in St. Ignace).
I vacuumed the van before we left with the handheld vacuum we bought at a garage sale, saving that cost of the car wash vacuum. I'll be vacuuming again now that it's cooler. Really, it's like I didn't even touch it.
I found my first cucumber! It's really the first of the harvest out of the garden in the back. I decided to enjoy the cool breeze after the storm last night and walk around the garden (I'll straighten up the corn this morning). I picked this cucumber and then heard a crack from the neighbors tree. I ran out of the area and watch a big branch come down. I was lucky and it was more on his land than mine. It's a cucumber with a story and then I ate him. Ha ha!
I hung up clothes everyday since it's been so hot. They are dry in minutes it seems like.
We found a great deal on Pork Chops this past week.
With the vacation and heat I haven't been in the garden in a week. I hope to get out there and weed as soon as I can.
What are the ways you've saved this past week?
