Changes to the simple life

Today is the first day of spring and yes the sun is shining!!! I can't help but reflect on the changes we have made towards a more simple life over the passed few weeks and months, both big and small...

We have turned off (and taken away) our refridgerator. See here for the full story

I have started growing our own vegetables,
We make our own bread and over 90% of our meals are homemade
We have removed our televisions and I listen to the radio instead (wind up/solar powered of course!)
We use homemade cleaners around the home and for washing, we recycle some of our greywater.
I volunteer at the local school and have joined local community groups
All small changes in themselves but together they have made a huge difference to our lives
