~fuzzy chicks and cupcakes~

My mom, sister and I decorated cupcakes for Easter.  I thought they turned out cute:)

Then came an easter egg hunt…

Happy Happy Easter:)

~earth happenings~

Earth day…and to celebrate of course I thought I would bake something:)

What the earth would look like from outerspace…and if it was a cookie.  I always enjoy baking, and I thought they turned out pretty good.  It’s amazing how much an oven can heat a house and turn it into a sauna…especially when the air conditioner is turned off.

Another fun perk of Earth day was getting a free tree!  Lowes gave away one million free trees and I just couldn’t resist                                                                                 getting one to plant myself.

Since I don’t really have the means to plant a tree where I live I took it to my parent’s and planted it in a pot until it is a little bigger and better able to take the West Texas wind.

My dad and I planted them and along the way discovered a huge ant colony, a lizard and a really long slinky beautifully colored what I believe to be grass snake.  All in all, a good day!  I’ll try and post tree pics as it grows into something wonderful:)

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way.  Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity, and some scarce see Nature at all.  But to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is Imagination itself.”
–  William Blake, 1799, The Letters

Wigglers and yesterdays news

My red wigglers finally made it!

I got them from here https://unclejimswormfarm.com/

I’ve been anxiously waiting for them to get here and when I checked my mail I had a package that had two little worms on top…I’m sure my postman loves me, ha!

I’m trying to focus on the reduce part of the saying, “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”…and all these little red wigglers are helping me do just that.

They started perkin up after they got into their new very nutritious habitat.

It’s so fun to me that things like fruit peels, egg shells and old newspaper can be transformed into some really great compost:)

Happy Composting!

~keep it beautiful~

Keep it simple…

Keep it fresh…

The card reads, ” Wola Nani~ A Xhosa word meaning ‘We embrace and develop one another’ ~ is an NGO that was started in 1994 to help people from very poor communities within the Western Cape living with HIV and AIDS.  These products are the result of our efforts to re-instill a sense of worth, hope and economic empowerment.”

Keep the peace…
