A Little Part of My Earth…

What do I do for Earth Daytco0008 or for the Earth in general for that matter?

Actually… I don’t know

Let’s see…

I don’t litter…

I don’t waste materials… by recycling wrapping paper, ribbons, cards, etc. …

I use things I find at thrift stores in different ways… recycling them into something new…k3159405

I plant flowers for the bees and insects…

Our first start of a blackberry bush/vine…

I save grass clippings and such for a compost

Compost of grass clippings, leaves, etc. …

I try to limit garbage… by burning any excess papers , cardboard and such in our fire pit

I pick up limbs and twigs off of the yard from our big trees to burn in fire pit also…

Fire pit for burning safely…

“NINER” was my maiden name…This piece of concrete header was sitting atop a stone pillar at my Mom and Dad’s house…

On, no!… Don’t tell me I’m polluting… by burning my picked up twigs…

Have I undone everything I thought I was doing for our Earth?…

Please tell me NO!…

Backyard… The grandkids love playing ball back here and hide and go seek…

I guess the main thing I do is try to keep “my little part of the world”… clean, fixed up, repaired and green…

the grass is getting so green…

My small contribution…

“Small Town Bliss”

Gift…

I’m getting to take a short trip with my favorite guymy husband … and we’re going to visit my favorite cousin in Murfreesboro, TN

She’s invited us to stay with her and her husband… which I like so much better on short trips… where we can visit  more…

Going down on a Friday… then she and I are getting up really early to have some girl time…

We’re going to the Bell Buckle Craft Fair

 

 in Bell Buckle, Tennessee… located in middle Tennessee not far from where my cousin lives…

She has come up my way to what I call the Greatest Craft Fair in our area… Glendale, KY

… so I’m going to check out her Greatest Craft Fair in TN… We’ll compare notes     later , ha, ha!

I find it interesting that both are Railroad towns… They sound so similar… from parking in the grass… lining the streets… to all of the Specialty Craft items being sold…

It’s small town bliss! …and all of us outsiders are biting at the bit to view all that they have to offer…

I read there are some neat accommodations if you were wanting a place to stay… Like the “Blue Tin Roof Retreat”…

or the “Red Rooster Bed and Breakfast“…

Of course we will have a wonderful time!… just being together… We are of the same mind on looking, looking, looking… at all of the neat Fall and Christmas Holiday Items

… purchasing small gifts for that certain person… and we are so willing to try out the corn  … the grilled foods… the homemade candies  ,cookies  and jellies  

The perfumed homemade soaps enticing us to smell each scent… the whimsical wood creations   … the oh, so lovely… decorations

Oh, I’m getting excited just thinking about it!…

See you soon cousin!
