Goodness. It has triggered a bit of serious soul searching and deep reflection. I know I am probably the LAST humanoid in the elegant frugality blogosphere to discover YMOYL but you know...better late than never!
Things I have discovered so far:
- I have some seriously $^@&ed up deeply held beliefs about money, work and what it is for.....ever as a free range chook.
- I have enough.
I REALLY do have enough stuff.
Anyhoo, I feel deeply inspired and almost giddy with anticipation. I feel like my eyes have been OPENED.
In other news, and in homage to all things wonderful and free, I started making Kiwi Vinegar today with some of the very last squishy kiwis. Its only been a few hours, but it is ALREADY smelling divine.
Recipe adapted from the pineapple skin recipe from WILD FERMENTATION by Sandor Ellix Katz.
- 1 liter rain water
- 60 gms sugar
- Squishy Kiwis
- 2 weeks.
How much does 1 liter of Boutique Organic Kiwi Vinegar cost to make?
However much 60 grams of white sugar costs.
Now that is elegant.
In other news, I am going to a Christmas in July well August celebration tomorrow night. In line with my new frugal elegance, I made 8 little jars of moisturizer to give out as presents.
Well, that's Friday and that is all.
Have decided not to spend any money this week. Given that I have ENOUGH and all. Except on food. And some unavoidable work travel expenses while I am in FNQ later this week.
Gook luck me!
