Here's a little spider I met out back earlier this week. 

Here's a little spider I met out back earlier this week. 

I sometimes read The Frugal Farmer, although often I find she's a little too extreme for my tastes, in terms of (what I consider) paranoid, apocalyptic-type thoughts, but sometimes that's interesting, too. She shared a link to this article, When SHTF These 100 Items Will Disappear First. While I don't think "hyperinflationary collapse" is imminent, or that we're going to war, we do live on a fault line. And if that happens and I haven't stashed away anything, I'll be quite annoyed with myself. 

This was an interesting read on Making Sense of the "No Regrets" Obsession. I've got some regrets, but I try not to dwell on them. Although I completely believe in pushing myself outside of my comfort zone, I think it's equally important to realize when something doesn't feel right or doesn't fit in with your ideals, morals, etc. I tend to regret doing things that violate my own sense of right and wrong. 

Composting: Nothing is Wasted pretty much sums up how I feel about composting. I love our compost bin, both because it absorbs waste and because it creates great stuff for the garden.
