Week #5 of the Living Large Summer of Fun Scavenger Hunt has us looking for a type of prize that will not only bring us some joy, but others as well. Les Brown, a motivational speaker is often quoted as saying, “Help others achieve their dreams and you will achieve yours.”
Living Large In Our Little House
The dog days of summer are here. We’ve had heat advisories all week and there’s little one can do outside past 11 a.m. But we can’t a little heat stop us from Living Large! It’s a great time of the year to start a project. The Living Large Summer Scavenger Hunt week #4 challenge: Get creative!
Living Large Summer of Fun Scavenger Hunt Week #3: Do Something You Haven’t Done Since You Were a Kid
When we were kids, doing the simplest of things gave us great joy and since Sade Sue’s Living Large Summer of Fun Scavenger Hunt is all about finding joy, guess what kind of fun you’ll be challenged to find this week!?

To celebrate our 10-year anniversary here, I’d like to invite you to find your bliss again on a virtual scavenger hunt!
Each year on Earth Day, I try to make one more small change around Our Little House that will help the planet (and it also typically saves us money and space).

I’ve long been a “tree hugger,” I consider myself an environmentalist, but as with all things in life, I’m not perfect.

If you can’t afford to purchase all organic food, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) creates a list each year. The Dirty Dozen are the foods most likely to have higher amounts of pesticides.
