About a week ago me and the boys went driving for a bit in the country and came upon a county landfill. We could see it and smell it and we were all equally disgusted. The sad thing to realize though is that while we were repulsed by the sight, we had contributed to that mess.  One of my favorite birds is the sea gull and they were everywhere, eating our trash. There was runoff from the mounds of trash that animals were drinking from. We wondered about how this would impact future of those animals. The boys joked about 8 point jack rabbits. While it was a joke, it could become a reality for those wildlife. The poor gulls are eating garbage and then feeding their babies on garbage. Roll that around in your head for a minute.

Now, I am not saying we should all turn green and become fanatics;but, I think we can all do a little more to help keep our waste down. It's much easier to grab the ziplocks to put our left overs in, but how much better is it for our earth if we use that tupperware we bought or some mason jars? I am going to try and do better at controlling the amount of waste my family produces. Yes, we still produce more than we should, and probably always will; however, I do aim to do better.

Have a great day!

Paint World Trilogy

Working on my 3rd book in my Paint World Trilogy. It's almost complete and I can't wait to have it out there for your perusal! It's a good book, even better than the first two with more interesting characters and exciting twists!! I have finished the cover for it already and am anxious for your comments. Hope to launch it soon!

I would love to win a Kindle Fire. Pretty funny that I sell books on Kindle, but I have yet to get a Kindle for myself. Guess that's because I can read the Kindle books on my laptop without the kindle. I know some people who can read them on their phones.
I have started Master Herbalist school and it would be lovely to have the Kindle Fire from which to read my classes. I hope I win!!

I must go make more soap!
