We try to do our part and help out the environment by living off of aftermarket parts so other than food we stay away from buying new. This helps keep stuff out of landfills and in the west is not hard to do. I am not preaching. Everyone in this world has their part and I feel very comfortable with living my part and feel the same way about others. Well, expect for those that believe they must hoard. That is a little extreme and quite awkward. Someone should take those hoarder people who are trying to overcome their perspectives (psychology might view this predicament differently) and ship the entire contents of their house to a 3rd world country and let them hand it out. This way they stuff goes to people who will appreciate it instead of being hauled off to a dump, and the people who spent a decade or two collecting will feel as though they have accomplished great things; which they will have because some of them could clothe a whole village.
Sorry, for the tangent.
I found the wreath at CynDecor. There were so many that I thought were just awesome, plus she was local. My favorite color is green so I had to go with the green, and I thought this would look good against my green door. I’m not sure if it does or not, I just thought that. The key was also such a cute idea especially since I don’t have a chimney and my children usually want plausible explanations for their questions. So far no question yet about its size. I am crossing my fingers.
As I took this picture I marveled at the sunrise. I am not sure what’s the best way that a house should face, but my which faces directly East gives me the sunrise in my living room in the mornings which is great for beginning the day on the couch with a good book and a hot cup of coffee.
Then it gives me the most beautiful sunsets in the evenings through my dining room windows and through the kitchen window while cooking dinner. I just thought I would share.
I must now get to listening to my Red Ice Radio and get to painting. Christmas is just around the corner and those portraits aren’t going to paint themselves.
