Five Simple Things (March 11)


Here are five things this week.

1. This Ducky.

We put Happy duck inside the bus to let her explore a bit. She was a bit unsure about it and was on guard the whole time, but with us there she seemed to know that she wasn't in danger. We're still trying to figure out how to keep the ducks on the bus when we do finally start traveling in it. As far as bus updates, you can keep up with our updates at the top of the blog under "No Rain" the bus conversion.

2. This Light.

After about 10 years we finally decided to replace our solar driveway light with a better one. Over the years the one we had has taken quite a beating. We are hoping to move the new one down a bit, so we can actually reach it and do maintenance if needed. The new one we went with is similar to this one.

3. This Garden.

Finally able to get outside and clean up the yard from the winter season. Glad to be able to get some sunshine while we cleaned out the garden boxes, too. Vitamin D is rare this time of year on the west coast of Oregon, but every bit helps when the sun does shine through the gray.

4. This Fix.

This month's Might Fix is a bamboo dish brush. We have really enjoyed these brushes since the first one we received came from Might Nest a couple of years ago. I love how environmentally friendly they are, and also love the fact that once they are at the end of their life you can compost them. You can get the April Might Fix here.

5. These Ducks.

Jeff sent me this picture while on his break at work this week. Now that we have our own mallards, it's always so strange seeing a few out in the wild and not "assume" they're like our ducks. Which, is not true, don't ever approach wild animals, or feed wild animals. Mallards in the wild do not have the same temperament as domesticated. 

Positive affirmations this week:

Routine is medicine.

Have a nice weekend.
