It’s March! And we all survived February, which wasn’t really that bad this year. We had a wonderful snowy spectacle and the weather last weekend was simply wonderful. Bren and I went for a lot of walks and even visited some local farms to get local produce! More on that later! 😉
World Compliment Day
First of all, today is World Compliment Day and I really can’t thank you all enough for reading all of my ramblings. Both in book form and on this blog and The Book Dragon’s Nook! I love reading your reactions to my writing and I am so excited about what this year will bring, with my latest manuscript being done and going through editing right now. Thank you all so very much!
Going for a Zero Waste lifestyle
Bren has been studying a whole bunch of books lately about living with zero waste and how we should all reduce plastics, or even try to ban them completely from our lives. Last week she asked if we could visit some local farms where we can get cheese, fresh milk and maybe even meat. We went to two of these and it was a lovely experience. We got some fresh milk and yoghurt and from the other one we got some really nice cheese.
I would really recommend everyone to try and visit places like these. Not only do you support your locals like this, but you can also prevent a lot of waste. Not only because we brought our own packaging, but also because there are less transportation costs and thus emission. Since we walked there, it was even better!
We’ll be sharing a whole lot more about this new adventure we’ve begun, but I can tell you that it really makes you feel good, because you know you’re helping to reduce the amount of plastics that everything in the supermarket seems to be packaged in.
The Weekly To-Do
Yep, there it is again… Haha, I know I still haven’t come around to writing a new blog article about my To-Do methods, but this week I have enough free time, because I’m done with Stempels for now. So, that means I’ve got more time to spend writing blogs and other content here and on The Book Dragon’s Nook! Once again, I’m asking you to stay tuned. I’ll probably make this my To-Do Month or something! March is also my birthday month, with the big four ‘o looming overhead on the 30th of March. I’m getting old, haha.
Anyway, I hope you all have a great week and I’ll see you guys back again later this week for more about my weekly To-Dos!
