Karen Karbo -- dinner should include 5 vegetables! Easier wrote than accomplished. Here is a photo of a recent kids meal: grilled cheese, tomato soup, corn, lettuce, apples (a fruit, not veggie) and potatoes. We eat veggies here, but trying to put five on the plate for one meal was a challenge. A challenge I enjoyed! Veggies -- easy on the budget, great for our health, and excellent for Mother Earth.
Friday slid past me yesterday, backed with client meetings, heat warnings, and a sick senior cat. Posting an update on our purge fell to the bottom of my list, and simply never happened. Today I can say we have now purged 1,405 items from our home. This past week the increase was due mainly to a purge of childrens' books (we have quite a few duplicates) and downsizing my CD collection. It shrank because I purged the jewel cases, but put the CDs in one large holder. Technically we purged items, keeping only the essential component -- removing the case and inserts.
