According to Wikipedia it is “a type of passive solar house that is made of both natural and upscaled materials such as earth packed tires, pioneered by the architect Michael Reynolds” “An Earthship addresses… Read more →

End of June Post

It’s the beginning of summer and fortunately the weather so far has been very tolerable with temperatures staying in the low 90’s, and the weekly rain showers along with the high humidity has been keeping the outdoors green and lush.

Life, Dolls, For December

I got all the boxes of Christmas stuff out of storage last week but wasn’t sure if I would want to decorate or not. I wonder if it’s normal as you get older to loose the holiday enthusiasm? I know my mother never did, but me? I just do not feel the holiday spirit all that much any more. Perhaps… Read more →
