No, really, it was just an average day.*
..cleaning, doing a couple chores, hangin’ with the rats, and working on my current ongoing ‘project’– which for weeks has been steadily de-cluttering and simplifying my bedroom. I was very inspired by the Zero-Waste family, spurred by their article in Sunset Magazine (which my grandma clipped and saved for me to read).
Actually, the whole family is motivated to shed the household items we no longer need, as we have officially found out that we are moving! We will be heading over to the state of Michigan in June. Yikes, only three months away!
This average day necessitated average clothes (which is my general fashion, so nothing new there):
Sweats with an Abercrombie and Fitch t-shirt (a thrift store score form a couple days ago!), and some plastic golden bling. Please excuse the odd look on my face!
Other ordinary things in my day included plenty of extraordinary ratties, and of course some fresh greens from the garden. A sign that means Spring has arrived!
Aside from greens, other Spring signs have included sporadic hail storms, days of wind and rain storms, and then one or two pretty days of sunshine, only to have it snow that night.
I suppose that’s life for ya.
The above greens were pictured before being smothered in tamari soy sauce, nutritional yeast, and homemade peanut butter! Holy yum! For lunch, it was eaten alongside some leftover hot rice cereal and cooked split peas, a carrot with peanut butter, and some popcorn. Totally random– but that’s how I roll ;)!
* Please don’t confuse my term of ‘average’ with ‘boring’. It was not a boring day, and I hope to get to the point where each and every “ordinary day” is extraordinary!
Is Spring arriving where you all are as well? I am so excited! Although as soon as it gets hot here we’ll be moving. Eeks!
