Mittens

In an effort to add a little more color and beauty into the world, every week on Pinterest I pick one of my favorite things and create a a new board to house all the images I find. On Tuesdays I make a blog post devoted to the theme.

Mittens

One of my favorite picture books is The Mitten by Jan Brett. It's a classic Ukrainian folktale retold and stunningly illustrated by Ms. Brett, The Mitten follows the adventures of little Nicki, who loses his white mitten in the snow -- and the curious crew of woodland animals who happen upon it and have their mischievous fun.

Winter

In an effort to add a little more color and beauty into the world, every week on Pinterest I pick one of my favorite things and create a a new board to house all the images I find. On Tuesdays I make a blog post devoted to the theme.

Winter

The icy air smells pure and fresh as it whistles around stinging ears. Numb feet walk leaving crisp, new footprints in the snow. Sounds are quieter, muffled, and the world is eerily serene. Many layers of clothing are snug as snowflakes gently fall. The branches of trees bow low under their heavy load. Everything glistens brightly under a clean, white blanket of snow. Winter is here.

Read more about winter time and some Winter Solstice traditions of the past and present in the article I wrote for Boulder County Parks and Open Space quarterly publication, Images.

Look Beneath the Surface

This award-winning video was published on April 16th, 2012. It was made by the Environmental Protection Agency. Take a moment to watch it and see what is beneath the surface.





The little things we do or do not do can have the biggest impact on our environment. We produce plastic for the sake of convenience and it becomes garbage. Imagine how much of a difference we could make if we reduced this waste simply by recycling or better yet, used reusable packaging and containers.


We can all make a difference and help protect our environment!
