Weekly Challenge Update

MELINDA'S BUY SUSTAINABLY CHALLENGE: Bought some buttons and some embroidery thread to repair my work Jacket. Went to new hardware store in Burien- didn’t buy anything but had a great time browsing the aisles of plumbing parts, screws, and hardware. Went to local shops in Olde Burien and bought a “snotty” egg separator, a cutting board, some habanero jelly and some peach salsa, which as it turns out was made in Kent, a town about 10 miles away. Bought a Nintendo DS game, don’t know of a local source for them so I bought at Fry’s.

Crunchy’s Freeze Yer Balls off Challenge: Back to normal. Back to letting the programmable thermostat take care of the heat. Had another snow storm last night and lost power. Was surprised that only the bathroom light was on! (Roomate went to bathroom- imagine his surprise when he turned the switch on and no ‘lectricity!

Sergeant Chile’s Operation Clean Out- Got my Christmas Tree stuff down from 4 roughneck bins to 3. Just put some old C7 christmas lights on free-cycle to give away!
