Meatless Monday

Wow! It’s Monday again already and that means I like to promote a meatless one for everyone.  You may already know that I am a vegetarian so every day is meatless for me, but I understand that not everyone can live without their meat.  My hope is that at least this one day a week, […]

31 Days to Build a Better Blog – Day 5

I am back at it again with my blog “Spring Cleaning”(I like the name Mariana chose for this challenge that’s based on Problogger’s 31 Days to Build a Better Blog.)  Today’s assignment is to email a blog reader.  That is easy enough. I have started to do something similar in that I visit the blogs of […]

Pack a Healthy Lunchbox That’s Waste-Free Too!

Have you ever been in a school cafeteria during lunchtime?  I have and some of what I have seen really bothers and worries me.  The food available to the kids isn’t the greatest(at least not what I would want to feed my children).  Some of the choices simply shouldn’t be there(such as fried foods or […]

31 Days to Build a Better Blog – Day 4

Wow, I am behind on this challenge.  In a way, it is for a good reason.  I have been busy with other blog-related work, plus a little something for another site so this “spring cleaning” is a priority, but hasn’t been getting the attention it deserves.  I just can’t say enough how pleased I am that Mariana […]

National Napping Day/Protect-A-Bed Mattress Protector Giveaway!

I had no idea there was such a thing as a “National Napping Day” and if you knew and didn’t tell me, I am so crushed and disappointed in you right now.  I will get over it, though, because I am all filled with excitement about the chance to have an excuse to take a […]

Drinking on St.Patrick’s Day? Buzzed Driving IS Drunk Driving! Plan Ahead

I know this isn’t a green topic in the eco-friendly sense, but it is a serious topic that is connected with a fun holiday that celebrates with the color green: St. Patrick’s Day.  If you choose to click away for that reason, then this is just plain uncool. I feel very strongly about this subject […]

Wordless Wednesday – First Solo Car Wash

He did such a great job!

31 Days to Build a Better Blog – Day Three

I am still playing catch up on the Spring Cleaning Challenge with Mariana over at Riding With No Hands.  Hey, nobody said they had to be consecutive days.  Today’s assignment was to promote a blog post. As in, promote a post that I wrote.  Eek! I could promote the heck out of someone else, but […]

Review of Larabars – Super Healthfood in a Bar

I simply cannot go without sharing one of my absolute favorite “handy” healthfoods with you.  For the most part, I like to bake my own treats for my family and for myself, but sometimes for convenience reasons we all have to grab something quick and on the go.  Of course for many people that leads […]
