By the way...how is your home?



You can make your home a more self contained eco-system. When things around you operate in cycles it is easier for you to see how in your interpersonal relationships you can do the same. So before I make my grand move West I have been doing so here on the Eastcoast and drawing up a plan on how I will do so in the West regardless of whether it is in a house or apartment.

First. Recycle your plastic, glass, and metal. Stop being lazy and stupid.

I built a homemade composting bucket in my backyard. It's fairly simple and I now have nice rich soil being manifested for my tomato garden. Via composting you can basically recycle all of your organic trash (that means food, paper, etc). Now this bucket is outside yet you can rock a smaller one inside with worms (don't get all girly-man on me) that can perform the same function. You can get nice with it (if you're the person of said ability like me) and do a science experiments with your babies. (Wait God..draw it up mathematically). This is also the science of entering into a relationship with a Blackwoman (who is made into the Earth). God Builds with her. He isn't repelled by the poor parts of her or those parts that she is afraid of, ashamed of. He just doesn't care for them in that he doesn't nourish them. What he does though is provide a sheltered quiet spot (closing up that 'garbage in a container) where he can then show her how to bring forth the best part. That which she thought was garbage is transformed into something beautiful. Cause ain't the Earth beautiful ;-) Check out the easy outdoor DIY Compost bin (ignore the 'girlistic website please)

Next thing that I made myself the last week is a solar powered dehydrator. Yes indeed. I'm all about Sol Power. Always have been. I like sun dried fruits...especially berries. I put them all up in trail mixes with my seeds and stuff. I made an ILL batch of dehydrated cherries the other day. (Draw it up mathematically God). Why is that dehydrated fruit so sweet? Fruit is symbolic to Understanding which is the best part and is preserved. God draws the water up from the Earth. He communicates with her. He is so clear in his actions in that he is a living example of being her support. She can see who he is. Ain't that sweet. Make your own DIY solar powered dehydrator

Thanks for the great information. I just was doing some research about West African foods and saw solar cooking mentioned several times. Making one of these is going to be my weekend project! ;) I also love sun-dried fruits too.

Peace God,
You "beet" me to it...I was going to and still may put up my blog on composting. Something I've wanted to do and haven't yet....

Also, I'm thinking about working on another post about recycling and conservation. Urban Feng Shui....the science of minimalism and practicality. We have a futon in the living room. We don't want a couch...why? makes more sense to have a futon for guests and it's easier to move...I have books and shelves for most of them....aside from my tv pc desk....I don't have furniture....I don't want furniture...we eat on the floor. or sitting on the futon...my bed mattress is on the floor...I have two dressers/bureau's, one for the babies and one for my undies and shit..I keep my clothes in plastic bins...

I got fed up with my material accumulation that my "OCD" was regularly stirred up by keeping these things in order...I strive to live simple and thus instill this in my babies...

We have plates and what not. However, we have hella plastic take out containers we have accumulated and use to eat and store food in because it's easier. I save containers that certain foods come in and store shit in them...why not?

This also is the result of me reversing the influences of my ol Earth growing up...who had buys things just to buy them...she got a china cabinet with china she doesn't use, but it "looks nice"...she lives alone but has this hughe glass dining table....for what? for who? she had at least 30 matching washcloth and towel sets, not to mention the furry toilet seat cover, bathroom rug and shower curtain to match each of them as well...

madness....so I keep my stuff to a minimal and reuse things always...
