    You know your a Stretcher when....

    I thought this would be fun when last night my husband asked me if I would like his old socks for my sewing projects. At first I said "no" but then got to thinking about the ways I could use them and quickly dug them out of the waste basket.

     So tell me: You know your a Stetcher when....

    You REALLY need to run your vehicle through the car wash, but it MIGHT rain later in the week so you just park in the driveway on that day and hope that it gets washed by the rain.

    You know you're a Stretcher when you find an old closet door in someone's trash heap and you recycle it into a work table.

    You save (freeze) all of your veggie scraps for soup, even though your aides who are doing the cutting think that you are certifiably crazy!  You save all sweet crumbs separate from bread crumbs, also in teh freezer.  Yours in Him, Deb

    you know your a stretcher when you barter your cleaning skills to an elderly friend in trade for doing laundry (instead of having to pay 3.00 a load to wash and dry laundry) while cleaning her house --and great company too!!

    You know you're a stretcher when you crochet a poncho for your vet's daughter in exchange for payment on services for your dog, or perform animal care while your neighbor is away in exchange for farm fresh eggs or milk.

    You know you're a stretcher when you use envelopes from one company to pay bills to another.

    You know you're a stretcher when you save your poodle's shaved fur (for the nieghbor to spin) for some prespun wool yarn that you can now dye to a color you want. Yes, I've done this. LOL

     ...you wrap up your kids' unfinished apples in saran wrap for muffins or apple crisp later that week.

     ...when your husband uses your old 100% cotton underwear as rags.

    ...when your husband uses the caps from Tropicana (or the like) juice cartons to hold his cleaning liquids for easier dipping with his Q-tips.

    . . .you drag the tops of your neighbors downed trees (insurance issue that is becoming cord wood) into your driveway so that you will have fresh poles for the vegetable gardens next year and dried leaves for your chickens' nesting boxes.
