  1. What did I do this weekend…dodged raindrops mostly. No school today because of flooding (Okeefeenokee Swamp is close by). I stayed in and baked bread with friends and enjoyed Tropical Dream Cake and cocoa/tea. After lunch decorated our church for Christmas with another friend. Sunshine and flip flops today.

  2. Wow, love the FREE adventures you found, that’s amazing!
    My oldest daughter is home for a month, so we are loving that and hoping to spend a great deal of quality time together.
    This week to be frugal:
    We went to our Christmas parade in town-FREE fun
    Bought some 50% off Christmas decor that included a new tree skirt
    My daughter who has learned to be thrifty, dehydrated orange and grapefruit slices for her new little Christmas tree, so sweet!
    Made white chili with chicken that I found on sale
    I made homemade GF Belgium waffles for us and topped them with some apple pie filling that we canned last year, Yummy!
