We have been having so much rain here in Benoni at the moment, that we are experiencing floods in some areas. This photo was taken by my hubby this morning when he was on his mountain bike ride…

Discoveries in the garden…
Today we went for a long walk down to the lake and as we were walking home, we found some stranded tadpoles, we have brought them home and will release them to our pond when they are fully grown frogs…
Erin has been learning about the lily and the rose in her Botany study as the two archetypal plants, one with a strong root system and the other a bulb… These are her representations of each one…

We have been enjoying our One Small Change and for this month, we have used oil lamps as often as we could at night and have really enjoyed this challenge. It has created the most peaceful atmosphere within our home and has really made an impact on our children about the use of electricity. We are discussing what our next challenge for February will be and I think we are all going to stop using shampo for the month of February and possibly thereafter. Instead of using shampo which flows down our drains and is quite full of harsh chemicals that ends up in our ground water and drainage systems, we will be washing out hair with Bicarbonate of Soda. I have used this before and it is wonderful for your hair and the environment too. I will post more about this tomorrow…
