Well it is Monday what a wonderful weekend!
First can I say I am working on an upload and it should be later today. I have a ton a ton of errands to run in town. If I can get it all done and home I should have one.
For right now, I am getting ready to head in and hit swim lessons and then multiple stops on top of that. So I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine started out with my hubby and I kicking up our heels and doing a little country swing. He and I met on the dance floor and it is one of our most favorite moments together. We got a ton done at the house with little things or rather my hubby did with my son. They worked on all kindsa things from messing with the boat, to changing out the horse waterers, to fixing the fence. My son just trudged behind his Dad with small plastic hammer in hand. So awesome to watch them. Then Sunday was a fun filled family day. We drove to Phoenix to help my brother move a jacuzzi then back to Tucson for a family party with my in laws. Fantastic! Love how that family gets together and just hangs out. By 9:30 pm we got home and had left at 530 a.m. we were exhausted, but it was time spent together so how awesome.
So this weekend I read a few magazine pages here and there. One that stuck in my mind was about an actress...can't remember her name for the life of me.... rrrr... anyways she was talking about taking baby steps to going "green". I gotta admit in life this crosses my mind lots from living on a farm in my youth, to spending time with my Dad in the summers in the "woods" of Wisconsin to living in the desert with my Mom and siblings and having horses of our own and living on a larger parcel of land then most. It may not be a huge section of land, but it is ours and we like it. We have just enough room to spread out. But I think alot about nature and life and how we all interact with eachother. How living in the desert versus the woods is each so different, but still have a lot of consistent features. One of those is I can still awe over a flower. And especially in the desert. I can awe at its beauty in a world of dirt and cacti. This lady in the article stated that you can take baby steps... Take a canvas bag to the grocery store with you for those quick trips or buy a favorite coffee mug to take to the local coffee chain. I thought wow this is pretty easy steps and I have a huge-a-mongous canvas bag I use for toting things already. And man does it drive me nutz when those little plastic bags break and some of my family in Wisconsin is supported by the paper industry so alot of times I try to use paper bags. But that also has its repercussions. So this week I will be seeing if I can clean out that tote bag and take it to the store for a test run for this quick stops at the grocery store. I am thinking this way I won't be dropping a can of soup on my foot when the plastic bag splits. And as for the coffee.... well I don't drink it... ick.. Hot burning scalding brown water with the funkiest bizarrest after taste that makes you want to cut your tongue out because you burned it and now it tastes like trash. ewwww. give me cold pepsi on ice any time! another habit I have to break. hahaha.
Well I have rambled to long.. I am wondering if anyone else has any simple easy steps to "green"... like turn off the water when brushing your teeth, unplug your chargers when not in use so they stop draining electric ... any thoughts? I am just curious..
Thanks much for listening.. have a fantastic Monday. See ya later today.
