Humane Meat Consumption

Some of you know I am a teacher.  My 7th grade ELA class has been viewing and discussing the documentary "Food Inc."  It really opened my eyes to the inhumanity in the meat industry.  To do my little part, today I bought organic, grass-fed, hormone-free buffalo meat and these:

I am used to paying .99 for eggs, but I really didn't mind the 2.99 price (plus I had a .50 coupon).  These will last me awhile because we don't eat a lot of them.  I just feel better knowing the chickens get to run around and roost and perch naturally.  Plus, these were fed only natural grain.  So, we are not getting hormones or other nasty things they injest in the chickens.  I wish I could raise my own, but we don't live in the country, and with two dogs......

Free in the Mail This Week

This week I received these items in my mailbox:

  • The Axe body wash for the son

  • Sample Purex for the dryer

  • And, coupons for these free:

  • Kashi cereal

  • Excedrin

  • Yoplait Greek Yogurt--This is nasty, but I will add Splenda because, hey, it's free!
**Cat was not free

Making Your Home a Haven: Drawers

 has been hosting the Making Your Home a Haven series.  This past week we were supposed to do something for someone.  I am taking that out of order and hosting a baby shower next Thursday for a woman at work whose baby came early, so he will be there!  I have NEVER given any kind of shower, so this is new to me.  She is very sweet, so she will be happy, no matter how it turns out.

Now, on to today's challenge:  Drawers.  I have 2 drawers in my kitchen that are catch-all drawers.  YES, 2!  Ridiculous I know.  Here are the "before" pictures:

After culling through them, here is the finished product:

Thumper and Minnie's favorite song is "It Don't Matter If You're Black or White," by Michael Jackson.

Below:  Miles and Minnie enjoying a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Here, Minnie decided she wanted to sleep in the laptop case.
Below:  If you look carefully, you will see 5 of the 6 babies.  On top of the chest is Snowflake.  Behind the computer monitor is Minnie, followed by Miles behind her.  In the front are Thumper and Humpty.  When Matthew has his guitar lessons, I go in my room, so naturally the cats followed!!!
Below, my sweet brothers napping.  Notice Humpty's arm over Thumper's side.

Below:  Here is my big boy

Here Minnie is eating her treat

Thanks for coming by and visiting us this week.  There's never a dull moment around here.

Go here to Monica's to see some gorgeous, inexpensive garlands for Easter and/or Christmas.  I have one of her Christmas garlands and it is lovely.  You can order, and she is giving away one as well.
