Day Two - April 2nd 2011

This past week has been incredibly busy with last-minute prep, dealing with unforeseen glitches and an 18 hour a day schedule. So this morning I decided to save electricity by sleeping in. Some might argue that at this time of year we don’t need lights on in the morning so how could I be saving power? Well, it likely didn’t have much impact other than postponing the use of the computer, but it was nice to get a few hours of well deserved rest.
Today is another action packed day. The rain has stopped and hints of blue patches have appeared in the sky so I might spend some time out in the garden prepping my beds to plant some veggies and creating a compost for organic fertilizer later this summer.
Right now I’m sipping my tea and reading my emails but as soon as my computer time runs out (one hour each morning) I will sort through last weeks garbage to see exactly what my treasures my trash can holds.

Join us Live @ 5 to hear for a recap of the rest of the day.

What's in my
Garbage?
After you have your fresh squeezed lemon water first thing in the morning, use the pulped out rinds to wipe the inside of your sink, add a sprinkle of baking soda, a little elbow grease and, VOILA! Sparkling kitchen sink and counter! No chemicals.
Oh. Another thing we DON'T do here is use a dryer. NEVER EVER! Hanging clothes out in the sun is better for them, especially your whites (!), and if you hang your wet to clothes to dry in a centrally heated house, they help add a wee bit of moisture to the dry air. ~Brent
