We’ve picked up a few new tricks though and are implementing several small changes this month to help ease the severity of our participation in plastic consumption; end big sentence.
Our One Small Change
is to let this plastic thing invade our lives in other ways. Ziploc bags we use a lot of. We freeze much of our garden in the summer and fall, not to mention the bags used to freeze the deer meat we were blessed with this year. We’re looking into alternatives, any ideas? Part of the problem is freezing isn’t really the most efficient way to save (think about all that energy loss), but we’re not in a place where root-cellaring is an option; perhaps down the road.
In the mean time we preserve in cans & our ice-box.
and that blahg-y feeling is lifting. I still need tissue close at all times, but my head is clearing and the beauty of the past couple days makes me wake sans-desperation. Excited even…
On top of a trip to the playground with Aunts, Uncles and cousins on Saturday, we took full advantage of the temperature and sun yesterday, too.
The strawberries are admitting it’s spring-ish.
Naomi hoed and planted carrots in her garden bed.
Does your husband make Amish Bread
? yum… (he substituted succanat for sugar and olive oil for vegetable oil–so proud. he’s always been a strict recipe follower, I think i’ve had some influence)
We laid a small brick walkway in a mucky spot.
And we retreated, exhausted by fun. Now I’m off to address the cleanliness of INSIDE the house.
We dream a lot about our future, but yesterday was suited more towards this quote and we were encouraged to be content where we are until our time comes to move along:
“I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.” -Albert Einstien
And while I’m here: What day is a command to move on?
