This past weekend my mom came to stay with us to help out with Bunny. As you may or may not know, having grandmas around is wonderful because they enjoy showering love on their grandchildren, and it gives me some extra time to do the things I love. I got a lot of painting done this week, three pieces actually! It was great because it has shortened my painting list of “to do’s” significantly. I can now start my big one that I spoke about last week and not feel guilty about needing to have the other ones to finish. I was “feeling green” with this picture. It was for a friend who had a bundle of joy over 2 months ago, and I missed her shower because of the newness of my Bunny. Her nursery is green, which was the reason for the colour choice.
Speaking of green, here’s a question I’d like to put out there for you as readers, and I know this is turning into a bit of a baby post but I don’t do it very often! Do you try and choose green (environmental) options when available? Have you used / would you use cloth diapers or do / would you stick with disposables? My friend Josee writes about green options on her blog often and I really appreciate learning more about the different opportunities out there. I would say that I try to recycle on a weekly basis but it is difficult without a recycling bin at our townhouse complex. Andres and I are also going to try and go cloth for awhile. Many of the economical choices we make happen to be environmentally smart. We try and buy our groceries local, (from within BC) we turn off lights when we’re not in said room. This summer we’re watching how often we use the dryer and oven partially because it heats our non-air conditioned house, and partially because it’s pretty easy to air dry clothing as well as have cold dinners (ex. sandwiches or salads. No, I’m not meaning that we don’t warm up our food!) Any suggestions for other easy ways to be environmentally friendly? (Bonus points if it helps you stay cool!)
