Homegrown Revolution (Award winning short-film 2009)- The Urban Homestea...

This really is worth watching! 

Growing our own food would really give us more freedom. I grow what I can while working full-time but when I retire would love to have a garden and livestock on a slightly smaller scale. I refuse to buy GMO and buy Organic most of the time. So my grocery bill is high. 

This shows you that you can grow your own organic food and maybe enough to share or sell in your front yard and/or backyard. 

Love this quote so much that I have it above my front door...

"Be the Change you wish to see in this World."  Gandhi

Spring to LIfe!

Feel this poem fits the first day of Spring and all new beginnings....

"Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. 
Life is beauty, admire it. 
Life is a dream, realize it. 
Life is a challenge, meet it. 
Life is a duty, complete it.Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is life, fight for it."

-- Mother Teresa

Change Is In The Air

For a long time I have thought about changing the name of my blog to something shorter. I was stumped until I added the link to my Pinterest page. 

So...hit me in the head with a wet noodle. They changed my Pinterest to "Jean-Simple Living". Like why didn't I think of that???

Living simple is my passion. My mission is to help others to live more on less so they can enjoy life more.

Hope the change in my blog title doesn't confuse anyone.

Atlanta Wild Animal Rescue

Yesterday ( 03/07/2015) a local nature preserve (The Pettit Preserve) hosted a Wildlife Rescue Do's and Don'ts event. The guest speaker was a lady from Atlanta's AWARE Wildlife Center .

She had a Barn Owl and a Barred Owl. They were injured and could not be released into the wild. 

We all learned that unless an animal is severely injured you should protect them for a short while. Let them be if they are babes and not hurt....since their mothers are usually close by. 

She also had a very sleepy full grown opossum. This opossum was found by someone who thought they were doing the right thing...feeding him dog food. Turns out this caused problems with bone development. Due to this the opossum is unable to thrive in the wild. 

A Box Turtle was run over by a lawn mower. This damaged her shell and she lost her back right foot. She can't thrive in the wild either. I learned that you should never pick-up a turtle by their shell. This could depress their lungs and they can suffocate. (Now I feel guilty as I did this as a child. However I didn't hold them for more than a few seconds.)

Go to Chattahoochee Nature Center to learn more about what to when faced with an injured wild animal or a problem with say woodpeckers pecking your wood siding or squirrels...etc in your attic. 

The weather was wonderful. A few photos around The Pettit Preserve. This preserve is beautiful!

I am trying to share this important message. Please take note of all your purchases and how the waste impacts our environment. Start small by using reusable shopping bags. That is where I started.
