We all have those days when we conquer some part of ourselves that define who we are. Sometimes I feel like I'm winning as a wife, or as a mother, or as a sister, or as a photographer, or as a fill in the blank. Sometimes, I even feel like I'm winning at just being myself. Today was one of those days.. A me day. I kicked the kids outside almost all day long and it was glorious! I spent many hours in the kitchen, taking everything out of my fridge, scrubbing, and organizing. I made oatmeal for breakfast, orange slices for a snack, egg salad with pickled zucchini's for lunch, and meatballs with sauteed beets and a big ole salad for dinner. Sometime in there the kids and I made fruit popsicles (see below), and Ilana helped me to make bird suet out of the collected fat from our bone broth batches. In less fun but equally exciting news, I called our internet provider and lowered our bill by $60, and Ty called our cell phone provider and lowered our bill by over $60! For the same exact services! And lastly, we finally took the plunge and paid off my vehicle with our tax returns.. Which feels incredible. I feel accomplished by all of this, and I even feel happy that I took the time to document our suet making. It's the little things, right?
