We do fairly well in many areas but there is one thing I feel very guilty about. Our use of fuel for transport. We try to keep it in check by buying food in bulk and growing what vegetables we can. This reduces our need to run to the shops. I also often get Hubby to pick up groceries we might need as he comes home from work. However there are many more events in our days that require us to travel. We drive in a large and very old car that uses gas.
|Our last trip to visit my daughters! We eventually made it!!|
My precious adult girls live two and a half and three and a half hours away respectively. To visit Lou Lou is a huge task. It makes for a very long and tiring day to complete the five hour round trip plus visiting time. I often feel like a nap when I arrive!
So if I want to visit Rosie, I always stay at least one night. I don't want to miss the special moments that are represented in these photos. My granddaughters are beautiful and changing every day. I want them to know us.
There are also many other things that take me out in the car locally. I have so many things I want to learn and be involved with! I attend workshops, swap markets, local farmer's markets and visit anyone willing to teach me new skills. Only this week, I was lucky enough to be invited to visit a biodynamic dairy goat farm. It was a drive of forty minutes but I didn't want to miss the visit for the world!
