I feel like Thanksgiving is late this year and it’s throwing me off. I have two more full days and one half day to go before vacation! I can’t wait to turn off that alarm on my phone!!! I almost always have the tree up by my birthday and this year, that did not happen. We will put it up this weekend and that will be a little late for us.
Yesterday was better than anticipated….I just wasn’t feeling it? Force of Nature Girl actually made it better? She sang to me before I ever left the house and filled my desk with pink balloons. One of the nurses even made me a cake from scratch using almond flour and maple syrup.
I thought it tasted great! I am still not 100% sure that she used real maple syrup but since I didn’t have a reaction, I am leaning in that direction. The day went pretty fast and I spent most of the night on the phone. As birthdays go…it wasn’t bad.
I got the call at work today that my chicken feeders were in, so I stopped on the way home. When the kid ran in the back to get my order I checked the bird seed and it was my lucky day…the 20 lb bag was on sale for $5.00. I stopped at TJ Maxx and bought eight holiday bags….I am almost done.
I attached the hangers, I have the bags, now all I have to do is portion out some bird seed. I have some plastic bags that will work since I am afraid to put the seed in the feeders and store them in the basement for a month. I don’t have any critters thanks to the cat but I don’t want to tempt fate. I think they came out really cute and almost everything is repurposed….
What else can I do with 1/2 gallon canning jars? I still have more. These upcycled bird feeders are useful and don’t take up any space in the house….the most important part is that these lids and jars are getting a new life and are not ending up in the landfill. I’m not sure why that is so important to me but it is. Next stop…family history project! Unless I decide to make more diffuser bracelets first…I took some to work this week and sold all of the ones that weren’t Christmas themed. It’s always a crap shoot…you never know what people want…….Zia
