I hate having fruit go bad before I can use it, but it's nice to know that it just isn't going into a landfill. We've been composting since last summer, and we're planning on using it for our garden this spring. I was taking this fruit out and decided to take a picture before I threw it in, the colors are gorgeous, even if they are rotten.
Also; we got a new puppy! She's a 3 month old german shepherd, we named her Scout. She's absolutely adorable, even if she does whine all night long.
I've been meaning to post my "new years resolutions". I don't like calling them that, I think of it more as just things I need to do, or want to do. I don't buy into the "new year, new you!!!" kind of thing. We're always growing and learning new things. That's what my lists about.
1. Be less of a consumer. Don’t buy things just because I want them. Even think through “needs”, can I make that myself? Or can I learn? Think one is going to be the hardest for me. It’s just something I do without thinking.
2. Don’t eat fast food for a year (or forever!)
3.Start phasing meat out of my diet. Not that I believe eating meat is wrong, but because of the enviromental impact of the farming industry. When I do eat meat, I’d like it to be organic/local.
4. Work on ideas for working from home. Baking, sewing, selling online, etc.
5. Most importantly, always be growing in and learning more about God.
I'm sure I'll be adding to this list. These are just things of the top of my head that I want to start doing now.
