I know you are getting tired of hearing about our garden but seriously, if you have room in your yard you really need a garden.
We planted plum and pear trees, and we put them in the front yard next to the street. Why? Because in three years, when they have matured and are bearing fruit, we want the neighbors to be able to walk by and pick a plum or a pear and enjoy it during their walk. Living Simple!
We bought 120 onions for four bucks and planted those this weekend. That means every onion we eat this next year will have cost us what, almost three-and-a-half cents each. Can you buy an onion at the grocery store for that price?
We went for a walk last evening and said hello to twelve people during our twenty minute walk. Total cost: ZERO! What did we get back in return: COUNTLESS JOY!
The neighbor across the street gave us some lilies and irises this weekend. In return we gave them some lumber that was sitting on the side of our house that we didn’t need. Total cost of that exchange: ZERO! It’s called bartering, or sharing if you will, and there is no cost but there is an expression of gratitude and some very important social interaction.
Just random thoughts on this Monday about the Simple Life.
A shout out to my lil’ Sis Cyndi who just finished a beautiful piece of artwork. You can see it here!
And for Melanie, who would like to see Meatless Monday catch on, I vow not to eat meat today in her honor.
Have a great day all of you!
