Everything is starting to come alive. After this very long winter in Tennessee, I was beginning to wonder if Spring was ever going to pay us a visit. It always amazes me how quickly the metamorphose between Winter and Spring happens.
Our March "One Small Change" was to plant trees. This hasn't happened yet because of the very cold,rainy, and muddy weather we've been having. The trees have been purchased and will be going in when the weather clears. Above is the fruit and nut orchard we planted 5 years ago.
One of the wise children I live with pointed out the trees we are planning to plant are really just part of an "oxymoron".
"An oxymoron?" I asked
"Yes. Mom, we are planting these trees and then we will come in for a great meal and wipe our mouths with one of the paper napkins you circulate around our table."
Oh my aching gosh she's right. I really have loved my decorative and thematic napkins. Every time I go to IKEA I pick up a horde of them because they are pretty and cheap, but what are they made out of? Trees!
Aprils "One Small Change" is to make fabric napkins. I have so many remnants of fabric and this will be a really fun activity for all of us to do. So I guess you could say that we plant a tree, save a tree. Happy April everyone!
