Green Monday X Simple Pleasures

// My reusable glass jars and bottles, all clean and shiny.

// A matching pair for storing evaporated milk and condensed milk.

// A perfect fit, albeit after chomping 4 biscuits from a new pack.  Because I don’t want something that takes up more pantry space than the pack of biscuits needs.

// harvesting my first batch of eco enzyme.

// because mending makes clothing last longer, so I am teaching my kids how to sew a few simple stitches.
