EcoFem Links – November 2018

While the world seems to have lost it’s damn mind in so many ways, this past week there were some things worth celebrating, and it all began with the color BLUE! And along with Democrats regaining the majority in the House of representatives, the number of women in the House in 2019 will have grown from 19% to 23%, including…

It’s been in the low 70’s all week so I had to switch gears from the umpteen house remodeling projects we’re working on to the outdoors where I swear, I PROMISE that there will be a huge-ass garden in 2019. One of the major decisions was figuring out how big to make it, whether to enclose it, and how to…

Yes it’s been a while, but – not so shockingly – I still have opinions to share and stuff I’m reading that I figure are important enough to mention every once in a while! There’s some serious shit going on in the world as we all know that no “thoughts and prayers” are going to change. And by the way,…

I know this is a horse property we bought but this scary golden-eyed horse “window” outside on the patio is going to have to find a new home… I’m back for some calling out of stuff that I think needs calling out, woo hoo! Fuck civility. “Are we really to believe that the same people who voted for a man…

So much going on in my brain right now! One piece of it all (beyond all of the logistics like paperwork, inspections, getting our house on the market this week and, of course, the financials) that we’re obsessing over is figuring out where the ducks, bees, clothesline and garden will be. While we’re not going to be planting anything, our…

In our efforts to deep-clean the house in preparation for sale, getting in the nooks and crannies of our stove was a priority, and this de-greaser recipe is pretty darn awesome. And yeah, it’s just a variation of the many other types of DIY cleaners using stuff we all (should) have around the house. Serious inspiration: prisons with no guards…

Alright, don’t say you weren’t warned: it’s time to vent as some serious shit going on that people need to know about if they don’t already…and hey, it’s been one helluva week in my world and the world at large…so here goes. #45 complains about pulling down statues of racist pigs, yet wants to reduce and/or eliminate many of our…

OK folks, so tomorrow is Monday the 21st and know what that means? It means I will no longer see half of the nightly newscast being spent on where to get eclipse glasses, how many spent 15 hours in traffic to get to the Armpit of Oregon to watch what they can see right here in town. Sorry y’all but…

My girl looking up at me as she lays at the end of our bed on the floor.  Whenever I’m feeling crappy she does this, it’s so sweet. This week has been gorgeous weather – high 70’s, low 80s, perfect for the garden. I personally prefer low 70’s but as long as the house stays cool I’m happy. This year…

Our tulips are totally going like gangbusters!!! Woo hoo!! Got a zillion different colors out there (obviously I have a thing for red…), just seeing the beginnings of the white and yellow ones and will have some multicolors coming up soon as well. By far my favorite flower…my only wish is they’d bloom all year… Getting to the middle of…
