Focus On Life 2014 : Week 35

August's Focus : Outside

Week 35 : Lazy Days of Summer

Spring is in full swing in my neck of the woods.

Warm days, cold nights and cloud bursts encouraging little green shoots to emerge from the ground and blossoms to burst from bare branches.

Promises of a hot summer to come whilst the other half of the world is enjoying the heat of the summer slowly transitioning to the glorious riot of colour that Autumn brings.

I've been chasing restful, repleneshing sleep for a while now and have not been joining in with the focus on life group as much as I'd like, but a wee burst of energy saw me take my two little imps to the lakes for a bike ride yesterday.

It was a particularly glorious day and we were treated to a lake full of beautiful model boats. Powered by the wind, they glided silently across the cold waters in a display of effortless elegance.

A timeless moment that could have just as easily taken place in any of the last four decades.

Recycle Your Empty Cans

One of the things I'd really like to change at home is the quantity of rubbish we create weekly.

Our two big offenders are plastic bottles (milk) and cans (my better half can't be without his fizzy). So I thought I'd have a little browse around the net and find some creative re-use of our rubbish starting with cans.
