bamboo

There's pictures of my pretty new bamboo floor at the renovation blog. It is the Golden Arowana Bamboo flooring that you can read about here but we bought it at Costco. It is about $2 per square foot and is just about the least expensive flooring you can put down that's worth a darn. It is even cheaper than carpet. You can buy transition pieces for thresholds and stair nosings from the manufacturer. We think we're going to love it.

eta: fixed the broken link, sorry.

addition update

I updated the renovation blog and put some more pictures up on flickr. You're welcome. :-)

more on the pantry principle

I'm afraid I've cooked so many meals using the pantry principle since I promised you more on the subject, that I can't even remember them all. Life is never boring here on the Frugal Farm, here's a sample of recent events...

*we passed our final inspection on our addition! No carpet, wood floor in the dining area, or trim/baseboards, but we're signed off with the city! YAY!
*the weather has turned to spring and I finally planted peas and onions but haven't gotten to the other spring crops.
*the Frugalbaby got a double ear infection and the pediatrician was out of town so I had to wait 2 hours at urgent care instead. FUN!
*above ear infection's antibiotics caused much intestinal distress and baby gets probiotics, too!  read more »

Way behind...

on blogging!

I have a lot to blog about but a lot of the pictures are still on the camera.

Meanwhile, since the baby is a couple of months old now and I put on a few pounds over the holidays (after losing all my pregnancy weight in only a couple of weeks, thankyouverymuch) so my current focus is trying to lose some of the 40ish pounds that I have put on since Frugaldad and I got married and I had 5 kids. I've learned that I have been eating a lot more junk between meals than I realized so hopefully I can lose a lot of these extra pounds just by cutting out the extra snacks and stuff.  read more »
