Every adversity, every failure, and every heartache, carries with it the Seed of an equivalent or greater Benefit.
Yesterday was the start of Week 2.
I have to remind myself of the above quote, to keep my situation in positive perspective. I went to the market this morning, I did not need to get a lot. I still have a lot of dried beans and grains. This is due to the fact that I took Chris to Winco and at that time I stocked up. However, at that time I hadn’t planned on being unemployed or for that matter posting $30 a week for 52 weeks, it’s just been instinct for me stock up when I can. Today I spent $13.93.
Green beans .76
Half and half 1.29
Yeast 3pk 2.49
Pasta 1lb 1.49
The green beans were fresh and on sale; the oatmeal is in bulk and will last about 10 days. The yeast will make 3 loaves of bread. I could’ve bought more, but really, I have a lot and I’m watching every dollar.
I still have some food left from last week; eggs and broccoli, and half of the spaghetti squash. I made a pumpkin bread yesterday from pumpkin I saved from the last time I made it. Not difficult and I’m not going hungry, and believe me – I can eat. Yes, meals need to be planned. But that is what real food is all about – good things take time. Good food takes time and it’s a priority. I don’t need to go around thinking or worrying about it. If I’ve taken care of it, it’s there for me.
