Saw it on Pinterest- regrowing celery

I realized the other day that I have a very active and well pinned Pinterest account but not many done projects. I am going to chronicle some for ya:)

I keep reminding you that I am not crafty. I am however very cheap and we do eat.

I saw THIS from Chickens in the Road pinned on Pinterest and it looked easy enough.

So I bought some organic celery:

cut off just the bottoms and soaked them in water:

and planted them outside.
They dried up and died. Apparently they needed more water
I started again and this time used little teacup/mugs; Because they looked cool on the counter. They stayed there until they REALLY sprouted.

Which got me thinking....if they like my nice sunny kitchen island, why move them outside? So now they sit on the island in a pot of soil. This picture is actually on the kitchen table. It moves, but continues to grow--I'll keep you posted:)

Still Remember Me?

I have stuff to write about but it isn't getting done. Seems that a lot isn't getting done right now!

We were exposed to lice. I say exposed to because once we realized we were exposed we completely freaked out and sterilized EVERYTHING. It was a bit traumatic but I guess it was for good:) All better now. I did a ton of research and will write it all out so you don't have to go through the hours I did to find it.

We celebrated many birthdays (5 this Summer) that I want to share with you.

Today, my husband is at the Laundromat for the day and my oldest son is working on his Eagle Project. I kind of have a few free minutes and found some good deals I'll share with you in case you have some spare change you didn't just pour into a coin slot on a washing machine:)

Tanga has some great daily deals today. $5 for a wall charger that fuels 4 USB's...think Ipod/Iphone:)

 AND 12 issues of Whole Living magazine for $3.99
