I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s Day! We celebrated yesterday and the tea party was a big success! Even though I went a little overboard (a lot overboard) this was actually a great celebration for us! It took care of lunch, we’re stocked on baked goods for a while and the little one feels super special. It’s also been a nice feeling to put the money I would have spent on candy and things into something for all of us- although whew, it took way more time!
I broke down and started seeds this week. It’s a little early, but I am just so ready to see small green things growing! If you haven’t already started buying your seeds and you purchase them online, you may want to consider it now, some of my favorite sites are starting to sell out already. I always have bigger eyes than garden plot, but I’ve been holding on to some litter buckets that will be home to tomato and pepper plants this year. The kiddo has planted some flower seeds in her very own starter kit, so she is thrilled with life. I’ve also let her buy some onion starts. We have a ton now and it ran us $3 for 100 bulbs! I’ll let her plant them now, we’ll plant them again in the fall (to harvest in spring) and they should be good to plant again next Spring with proper storage. Not a bad investment and I love giving her the opportunity to see something she chose grow!
As a special treat this week, I used my Amazon shipping credits (credits you get when you delay shipping or bundle multiple purchases together) to buy a digital copy of The Croods: A New Age on Amazon! It worked out really well, my credits were set to expire this month anyway. Now we’ll get to have a fun movie night- which is good, winter has finally arrived and it’s a cold, dreary world out there right now. We could use the pick-me-up!
Earnings this week were painfully low! I have a few things in the works that should make sure next week are better, but ouch, I think this is by far my lowest earning week! Which doesn’t really seem fair, I’ve been working my butt off for these pennies! I am trying out a few new survey sites to make sure they are consistent earners and actually pay out! We’ll see how it goes, hopefully there will be a new site I can really lean on for earnings.
