Taking A Break

This weekend was pretty good, but there is definitely still some stuff that needs to be done. I have caught up on a bunch of things lately though so I feel pretty good. Due to a slight injury, I've stopped exercising for the next week or so. I'm hopeful that my body will heal and I will be able to resume afterward. We'll see.

In other news, this weekend was a great opportunity to relax and take in some sun. I enjoyed sitting out with my plants and having coffee in the early morning. And a quick walk down the jetty where I live without treating myself to a lunch out was a healthy and frugal activity this weekend. I also was quite productive on the side in order to move some projects forward for side income which is a huge part of paying off debt at this point.

Amazingly, this month's finances were all but wrapped up by the 15th of this month, so I am looking forward to getting the final pay of the month and 'closing out the books' lol. It marks the halfway point for the year and I think that there will be quite a few causes to celebrate in terms of financial progress. Moving forward, I think that there is a ton of work that still needs to be done, but it is really important for me to remember that it is a process.

To ensure that my plants don't all get eaten, I am planning to mix up a soapy water mixture as an alternative to an insecticide to save money and also make sure that my veggies stay as natural as possible. Believe me, I was rather chuffed upon discovering a bug on my nice lettuce this weekend!
