Christmas Decorations Made from Trash- The Weekly Challenge Update

Sharon's Independence Days Challenge- Year two, week 33
1. Plant something: Just some sprouts- ground too frozen to plant anything
2. Harvest something: Nope
3. Preserve something: nope
4. Reduce Waste (recycle, reuse, reduce, repair or compost something): Made a CD tree from old CD’s I have obtained over the years; Made some “mini-wreaths” out of security rings of off plastic bottles to put on my tree
5. Preparation and Storage: Finally got started on rearranging the pantry so it will fit canned goods and such better
6. Build Community Food Systems:Was going to help with moving the community garden, but had a cold so stayed home- Got word we are getting a new community garden
7. Eat the Food (cook or eat something new): Some veggies I froze in soup

Buy Hand challenge: Am done with my Christmas shopping/gift making. Am now working on mom’s Christmas Shopping and gift making!

Freeze Your Buns off challenge- Got the thermostats set, same as last year- 65 when home- 55 when in bed or gone from the house. And again, just like last year am fighting off a cold- so the temp may go up. Time will tell
