Mindful Living

Spring calls to me, "Come outside."

The Hummingbirds have returned!
I really want to be outside all day with the bugs and birds!

Hand sewing continues to be fun in the evenings.
Anything goes when it comes to cozies and crazy quilting.

I am finding lots of little ways of being mindful.
I am using rechargeable batteries and I plug outlets
that are not in use.
I use a creamer for the co-conut milk I put in my coffee.
That way I open the refrigerator once in the morning.
Just a little way of saving energy.
The mornings have been chilly.
I turn on my space heater.
No need to have the furnace on.
 I can always put on a sweater.

I made a big pot of soup in the slow cooker.
The slow cooker is an efficient way of cooking.
Plus it is delicious and so easy to do.
There are lots of different styles of embroidery.
I think making pretty flowers is fun!

Our hummers are back too. So much action in the garden now. I can hardly stay inside. Can't wait to see some embroidered flowers.
