  1. I have always been careful when it comes to water and electricity usage. I was a advocate for recycling when I lived at home with my father, and even now today.
    Living in the desert I try to find new ways to save on water and electricity...things which are under $20 and so far the plants I have bought to block the sun from the house are growing...slowly but growing.

  2. Thank you, Karin, for sharing your "doings". :)
