Recently I wrote a post about using up my abundance of calcium supplements by putting them in water for plants.
Today while I was making my new favorite breakfast (fruit/veg/yogurt smoothie) I realized I could probably throw a calcium pill into the blender with the rest of the stuff and swallow those horse pills with no problem! And it worked. I figured if the blender could chop the ice up it could probably handle a calcium tablet.
Below is today's recipe (shown in a thrifted glass above).
- 1 banana
- a handful of mini carrots
- a couple of spoonfuls of organic vanilla yogurt
- about a tablespoon of flaxseed (for omega 3 fatty acids and fiber)
- water and ice
This new habit is only a couple of weeks old. I've tried it before but I get tired of cleaning the blender (no dishwasher). So now I fill the sink with hot soapy water before I start the drink and throw the blender right in so it is easy to clean. So far so good.
Sales have been pretty slow lately. I was happy though to have two recent sales on etsy.
This chartola was given to me free. At first I thought maybe it was a Pier 1 imports faux antique. Then I saw all of the original paperwork for it. I got $100 plus shipping for it on etsy.
I bought this lot of silver plate at a thrift store for $1.25. None of the pieces separately were worth much so I put them up as a lot for crafters. They sold pretty quickly for $19.99 plus shipping.
