OK, I am back.
Farmer Dad has returned to work after being on vacation for
a couple of weeks, much of it spent hogging the computer. ;-)
Here is a fun link from the people who bring us the Green Hour.
It will help you find many of the local, state and national parks near you as well as
some private parks and nature centers.
Just because it is cold outside there is no excuse
to stay indoors.Of course if it is too mucky to be out
and about, or you are a little "under the weather", here is a fun "green" site for the kids
to enjoy while inside.
Did you green up your holidays this year? We did.
We asked for less stuff, we gave less stuff, we were much more careful about
the kind of stuff we asked for or gave. We tried to re-use a lot
of stuff,like my supply of gift bags and large pieces of previously used wrapping paper
that I keep in an old suitcase in my basement.Instead of buying new.
Let's see that takes care of reduce (less stuff bought) and re-use (dishes,utensils,decorations,gifts,gift wrap)what's left? Oh yes, re-cycle.
We shredded wrapping paper that was too small for re-use to use in gift bags
later in the year. I have a small shipping box that I keep it all in on an old changing table
that I received from a freecycler near me. I would have used my own, but I never bought one
for when P was a baby. I used a changing pad on a small dresser that is now her bedside table.
This is what it looks like...
I will have to take a new photo of the wrapping station when my camera is done charging.
I do not have my old photos on this machine..yet.
Do you have ideas for re-purposing items to organize your home a bit more?
I'd love to hear them.
