I was going to get all serious today and write about how I can't believe anyone could be unconcerned about climate change these days (especially people with children/grandchildren) and the speed at which we are using up the earth's resources. So, I started to think about what to say and realised that once I started, it would be difficult to know where to stop! I'm also not very good at expressing myself, even though I'm clear in my own mind what my views and purpose are, and don't want to nag or preach to anyone. I've decided, therefore, that the thing to do is to continue as I am, following my conscience, doing what I can, and hope it rubs off a little on those I come into contact with. Most people would rather not be reminded of the global environmental situation because they then feel guilty about what they could be doing and would rather continue as they are and push it to the back of their minds!!
(It's surprising how much you can write, just to say what you're not going to write about :-)
Now back to what you'd normally expect from me - A weekend round-up!
I didn't realise the carrots in the garden were ready to eat until OH brought in this huge bowl of produce on Sunday! Shame I bought some from the supermarket on Friday!! Carrots with dinner for the rest of the week then? That's the last of the lettuce though for a little while (OH is going to plant some more). Every year I plan to pickle lots of beetroot but I like them so much they don't make it into a jar! I used to microwave them but try not to use the microwave too much and now boil them on the hob (they take the same amount of time and I also find it less messy).
Bye for now
