Upping our Eco Cleaning Game, bit by bit

After the last couple of years, I laughed at the fact that I went to sleep last night thinking about eco-friendly ways my husband and I are upping our game, rather than all the other S that’s hit the F. Kind of a nice change of pace for my mind that loves to race just before falling off into my…

Tuesday Get an (Eco) Peek

OK after a few weeks of other things, I’m back to finish this project up! This final week I’m showing you the least visited area of our home – our basement. Not its fault, we just don’t have a lot of reasons to go down there since it’s comprised of the second and third bedrooms (one for the future kiddo(s)…

Tuesday Get an (Eco) Peek

I had rather be on my farm than be emperor of the world. ~George Washington So now y’all have seen our bathroom, our kitchen, and our garden and how we try to live green in all those areas of our home.

Tuesday Get an (Eco)Peek

Hola everyone…Alright so last week we got to see our backyard garden and how we’re doing the veggies and flowers and berries and such, and this week I wanted to show you the front and side of our house looks like and how we keep it Eco 🙂 The front of the house has transformed just as much as the…

Tuesday Get an (Eco)Peek

Hey what’s up y’all…this weekend I spent in the sunshine as the rain went away and the warmth has returned, at least for a bit!

Tuesday Get an (Eco)Peek

Hola everyone! Well last week I split the subject of food up, with the first part focusing on food and food storage, from canning to what’s in my fridge to the makeshift pantry that once was our linen closet. This week I bring you the second part – the other things that make up our kitchen. So I’ll touch on…

Tuesday Get an (Eco) Peek!

Hey y’all! OK next up on the Eco Peek into my world is all about FOOD! Because “Kitchen” is such a monstrously huge category (for me at least!), I thought I’d start with food storage, and next week I’ll show my actual kitchen with details on appliances, what I like to cook with, what I serve food in/on, all that…

Tuesday Get an (Eco)Peek! (A new series)

Alrighty y’all, for far too long I’ve been ignoring much of the “Eco” in my blog title, and for far too long I’ve had it in the back of my mind to get back to more of the hands-on stuff I used to do on my blog, sharing what I do to live a bit more green, sustainable, simple, eco,…

Slow Living Essentials: July 2015

Slow Living , woo hoo! Spacing out on this blog project in June with all that was going on in our home, I’m back with a vengeance and trying to stay cool (not Fonzie cool, just avoiding sweating as much as possible as we here in Oregon deal with both drought and heat waves that are knocking us flat on…
