A Journal of My Days: 1/31/23

   Welcome to A Working Pantry and today's post!

if this is your first visit, we hope you find something that will make you want to come back.  If you are a regular reader, please know that you are appreciated so very much!  I love the little community of frugal living, like-minded, pantry building people we are building here and am happy that you've chosen to be a part of it!

 The last day of January has been a busy one for us!  

Out of town errands ...

Continual checking on family and friends being affected by the massive ice storm making its way across the country ...

After we got home, I set the timer for 30 minutes and got some sewing in ... 

(I'm really trying to sew some every day before gardening season begins.)

(I finished this pillowcase to go with the ones the students in my beginning sewing class are making.  Once completed they will all be shipped to Ryan's Cases for Smiles.)

got my 30 minutes of exercise in for the day ...

and located the notes I've researched and collected on making seed tapes.  My plan is to make seed tapes for beets, lettuce, radishes and kale.  I'll do a post with pictures when I make them up and share it here on A Working Pantry.

  With this post I will have written and posted an entry every day in January, it's my intent to do it again in February if possible.  I hope you're learning from and enjoying my efforts.

That's it for today, I'm curled up in my recliner enjoying an evening of rest and relaxation and it feels good and right.

I hope you've found something helpful or inspiring in today's post!

Until tomorrow ...
