what i’m thinking

I am happy to say I got a lot accomplished yesterday.

I did figure out how and when to water my garden. I got the hubs to hook of the washer (by mentioning it several days ago and waiting for him to run out of socks ahem)

I also got a lot of my schedule sorted out though it needs a little polishing.

Sadly while figuring out the water I slipped and took a spill. Yesterday my back and leg and arm hurt today just my arm. seems to be radiating down from shoulder. boo!  Of course I think a bath fixes everything and last night I found out I couldn’t have a bath. 😦 apparently the tub has one of those flip stoppers and it completely seized. Which of course makes that todays goal to un-seize it.

I am turning over a few new ideas in my head. They are just starting to form but I think I’m going to embark on a new project. This house we bought is way bigger then the old one. Despite that it is fairly sustainable. We have tons of solar panels on the roof and I am told the electricity bill for last year was $4. There are loads of native plants many that are drought tolerant and there is watering systems put in to lower the water usage. There is a vegetable garden with fruit trees and wild blackberries. So I have been thinking oh sustainability and being ecological can be beautiful.  I want to find more ways to make this home ecological and more beautiful. As I said I just started turning the idea over in my head so I’m not sure where its going yet.

and now I’m off to tackle todays to do list 🙂

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
