This is the shortest intro ever here because I need to make breakfast for the grandkids.
Here's the Week 3 weekly conversation thread. I'll be back later to write more but wanted to get this started.
Have a great week.
Pretty vases, Moni. And the old-looking watering can is so cute! I know that is not the point...
We don't really do anything like that for conserving water. In a way, we're lucky because we have a well. Still don't want to be wasteful though, right? I have rain barrels.
We do recycle. Because we live "in the country" and don't belong to a city, we do not have curbside recycling, so we have to take ours into Norman every week. We take it to the Cleveland County fairgrounds right before grocery shopping each week. They actually take glass too. Some places don't.
Honestly, if I was single and lived alone, I could do a lot more. To me, it's not worth it to fight with husband about everything. I am happy that he is good with driving in the recycling. He doesn't complain about the compost bowl that is always on the counter either. He lets me hoard cardboard to use in the garden, which eventually composts. I'll take it.
Nancy, I don't remember eating paw paw.
I'm still excited about my chaste tree. It was so fun watching the bees and butterflies cover it. I'm just happy to have anything that is easy to grow and is somewhat attractive. I'm also excited about the Chinese Pistache, also a non native.
I would also like a clothes line. There's an elderly woman in our neighborhood who has one of the round-ish kinds that she probably used when her family was young. It's very heavy duty and I've not seen one exactly like it. I've thought about asking her if we can buy it. I do dry a lot my clothes indoors, hanging on doors and such.
Because it was damp outside all day, I decided to work on changing out our closets. And sort through a LOT Of stuff. We have two large bags to take to the thrift store. We just took a giant load last week! I feel like I accomplished a lot. It's something I've wanted to do for awhile. Our bedroom only has one regular closet. We came from a house with two closets in the bedroom and mine was absolutely huge. I didn't have enough clothing to fill it. Tom has used the 3rd bedroom closet since moving here. I wanted to change my clothing to the 3rd bedroom and put my dresser items in the dresser in that room. It's a very feminine room. At some point, I'm going to take the bathroom across from that room. Right now it's the bathroom that Ethan uses...but I'm going to make it mine soon and he can share with Tom.
Being organized feels so good.
