Recently on Facebook an ad popped up that caught my eye. A group called 4Ocean is raising $$ to pay for boats, fuel and people to clean debris out of our oceans! They recycle the glass and plastics that they haul out and make bracelets. For each bracelet you buy they will make sure and pull a pound of trash for your donation. Click HERE to learn more.
I actually bought 3 of these to support this project. In 2 years they have pulled up 780,821 lbs. of refuse due to the support of people like you and I who want to help.
The beads are smooth glass and the cord is recycled plastic and there is a stainless steel 4Ocean charm on each one. Of course, these are waterproof and you can wear them swimming. :-)
They have a new color, green, for saving the sea turtle. What do you think of the idea?
Our patio table arrived on Monday and Dayle and Kristi got it put together.
Even Hayden helped with the project.
The table actually matches our old chairs quite well so I don't need new chairs. :-)
The reason I wanted an openwork table is that now the dust will go right through the holes.. right? The glass table was ALWAYS dusty and yucky.. even 5 minutes after I would clean the glass.
I foresee many meals out on the deck enjoying the birdsong and the sound of the waterfalls and all the green growing things.
And we have a lot of green here!
Kristi arrived home from shopping with some surprises - some pretty stripy carnations, a new variety of lilac, a mosquito plant and a tomato!
Aren't these pretty?
Such a fine little lilac flower! It has a slight aroma.
Some of the flowers in one of our hanging baskets.
Kristi brought home a crate of strawberries, aren't they pretty? They are locally grown and so sweet and juicy.
Just FYI - I did not enhance the color on these photos!
Look what Kristi found while weeding around the play structure. The big discussion is do we put it back where she found it or keep it and raise it up.. she wants to keep it as a pet. To be honest, if we put it back it will likely get eaten by a coyote, hawk or owl. Decisions, decisions.
LATE BREAKING NEWS -- Kristi put the baby bunnies back out in the play house and hope that their mother finds them.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
