Cleaning the Garage

Switching to daylight savings time has left me sleep deprived.  No complaints, though, as daylight in the evenings is wonderful.

Today was a fabulous sunny day with temperatures reaching into the 80's!

Today was flute lesson day.  Harriet worked with me on the flute ensemble music this morning, and Jackie worked with me on my regular lesson this afternoon.

Travis and I cleaned out some of the garage today.  We found another van load of items for Molly and the kids to sell at the garage sale on Friday.  They are making money for Orlando.  And I love having less clutter in the garage, although there is more work to be done there.

Lunch today:  Green Smoothie (watermelon, banana, kiwi, apples, dates, water); Grapefruit with Honey; Honeydew; Mango; Goody Ball; and Pistachios.

Lunch:  Green Smoothie, Mango, Honeydew, Grapefruit with Honey, and Goody Ball.  Pistachios not shown.
At Kroger I bought organic baby carrots, cucumber, apples, oranges, grapefruit, kiwi and an avocado.  I bought commercial cantaloupe, honeydew, watermelon, and avocados.

Dinner tonight was leftover salad with oil and vinegar dressing, sauerkraut, avocado, and peanuts.

What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another. - Gandhi

From the book Perennial Vegetables...Perennials, especially trees, moderate micro-climates, making the areas around them cooler and moister.  The root systems of perennials catch and store water and nutrients that would otherwise be washed away.  They provide critical habitat to animal, fungal, and other life forms that are highly beneficial in gardens.
