I can't believe another month has flown by! It's time for the monthly link-up with Christine at Slow Living Essentials. But before I give you a run down on what I achieved in each of the categories I have some important business.
Today it was time to draw the winner of the PIP Australian Permaculture Magazine. And the winner is......... Louise from Winks to Remember!! Congratulations Louise. Could you please send me an email with your address? My email is on the right of my blog but it doesn't link through (it was too complicated for me). Soon you'll be reading a copy of the first edition of an inspiring new magazine!
So back to the month of March and the lovely link-up with other slow living bloggers;
Nourish - Belle turned eleven in March so we had some party food. I decorated the cakes with violas from the garden. Actually Christine, I used your recipe for the cup cakes but coloured the batter to make rainbow cup cakes (a birthday request). Love that recipe. It's so quick!
Reduce - At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I'm still trying to reduce the STUFF in this house. I've done well downstairs. I have one cupboard to go in the kids room. Then I'll start upstairs. That's our bedroom. I'm actually scared of it!! It's the room that no-one enters so if I have something and I don't know where to put it, that's where it goes!!! Argghhh! Now is the time. No more procrastinating. And you will never, never, never see a photo of my bedroom as it stands!
Green - Can't think of anything new except the beautiful shoots of grass that are coming up after months of dirt and dust. A little bit of rain causes magic to happen!!
Grow - I have failed dismally in this category. I have harvested some stuff this month but I can't even plant the seedlings because we have no garden water. The dam is too low to pump from so I'm waiting for big rains. The photo below will give you an idea of how desperate I am. The poor children would love a bath but it's showers only for us!!
PIP Australian Permaculture Magazine online. I have really enjoyed playing my very small role by donating. There is a certain feeling of life being 'right' when people achieve amazing things without relying on govt. or big business.
