REDUCE

I usually think of the 3Rs when I see this word, but other things reduce as well. Like our firewood!

Douglas, I know it's dumb, but Kentucky looks so long I don't think of it as having a north, or south. Just an easy and west.

Quite the difference in a similar photo pointing in the same direction, the difference being night and day.

Cris Fellows wrote:ALONE

I'm not really, have just taken to sleeping alone of late.  Perhaps something that happens when you have been together most of your life, the kids are gone and you just want to listen to a book before you sleep...then hear no snoring and feel no movement.  It's been rather lovely here alone in this little room.



Hi Cris,
I was looking back through the photos posted in here, your background picture made me think of a "picture harp". I don't know if there is such a thing, but I could see it as great fun for adults and kids alike.
Maybe make them as a picture frame, customers add their own photos. Probably better be a plexiglass cover.
;)

LEARNING

While waiting for tap water to heat, we collect the cold water in a bucket and put that in the washing machine or use it to water container plants. The partially filled bucket sits by the cookstove until emptied. Meowy's problem was trying to figure out how to get a drink from the bucket without getting her feet wet.



It took a little experimenting, but I think she's got it.
