Some Catching Up

So much has been going on since I last blogged.  A family Mother's Day picnic and whiffle ball game at Harkness Park...
A two week every day run to School of Swimming (which is over an hour away)...
And a lot of gardening.  The front garden is all cleaned out with new mulch and some new annuals put in.  As the garden matures over the summer, it will look very full.  It has already filled in quite a bit since this picture was taken.  The  vegetable garden is coming along really nicely with all the rain we've had.  I'll take some pictures of the garden beds once the weather clears up a bit.

Which leads me into my next topic; the price of food and how to cope.  I don't know about you, but I've seen a noticable increase in our food bill.  I'm committed to trying to feed my family healthy meals at a reasonable cost.  I'll be back with what I've been doing to  lower our food bill without compromising our food quality.

Yikes! on the cost of the food!
You still have a houseful of children at home, don't you? It must be so difficult for you.
It is mostly just husband and me, though my grandchildren are here often and we have company often.

I am shopping even more carefully, when something we like is on sale I stock up as much as is feasible, we are eating meatless meals.
And still, our grocery bill is higher than ever, even than when we had 4 children at home.

looking forward to hearing your methods.
