1 - How many useful one gallon jars of various materials does one homesteader need? Probably not six. I refuse to throw this out, so am working on finding it a new home.
2 - In my own defense, at the time it sounded like an awesome idea. I had visions of dispatching hordes of stinging insects and pesky flies with a flick of the wrist. I mean, who doesn't want to experience the thrill of frying mosquitoes? No?
3 - With a heavy heart and great trepidation, I have waded into the knitting/craft area in order to meet my quota. It seemed only fair. Plus it is the area of highest concentration of 'stuff'. Still... I did find that I have more than one knit-from-the-heart-type books.
4 - Loved the look of this vintage knitting book, even if the tot on the front both makes me cringe and feel cold at the same time. And we complain about mini-skirts?
5 - I have knitted not one sock from the book, on the road or not.
6 - After careful deliberation, I have decided that I will NOT learn how to make soap. A person has to draw the line somewhere.
7 - This big stack of magazines went to a new home, along with two other larger stacks that I did not list. I wavered for years - paging through every now and then, an article catching my eye. So I saved every one. This weekend, I pulled on my BGPs and piled them all in a box and put them on Freecycle. They were gone in a day. Poof!
