Some of my winter blues have subsided. It helped when I got these…
and that the weather is going to do this…
next week! Spring is almost here. It hasn’t been a terrible winter, but I don’t handle cold of any kind very well. I am ready for those 70 degree days.
The flowers inspired me to start this…
It is still a work in progress but it was all I had time to work into the schedule this week.
Today I got the call that we have 40 boxes of tile to pick up so I have to hurry up and finish painting the room I have been working on…
and learn how to lay tile!
I sort of rushed through last week’s post since I was running late. Ok, so I’m late again this week but not AS late.
For the moment I am going to call my little environmental section Healing Home. I need to call it something so until I or you have a better idea that’s what I’m going with. Did you read last week’s post?
At the beginning of each season I go through all my clothes and see what needs to go. With Spring almost here I think Spring cleaning is in order. Today I will start with clothes.
I’m pretty sure most of us at this point probably donate our out grown or out of style clothes, but what do you do with the ones that are stained, torn or threadbare?
Here is some information about just how bad the problem has become with our textile waste.
Before you throw out the worn out clothes, stop and see if they can find a new purpose such as napkins, swiffers or un-paper towels.
Better yet, consider less clothing. The uniform look has been a “thing” lately or you could try Project 333. I have sort of blended both. I am down to about 40 items of clothing (she doesn’t count underwear, socks or work out clothes in Project 333) and most of my clothes are solid colors that mix and match easily. It is rare that I part with more than four items now in my seasonal purge.
If you are just finding my blog, this section is new and is my small way of simply making us all aware of how badly we need to clean up after ourselves. You know, that Mom thing just never goes away even after the kids leave home!
Have a great week. I have to go help D. load up 40 boxes of tile now!
