Prepping for Winter

One of my 3 compost bins has been emptied out and spread on the vegetable garden. The triple benefit is:
  • i now have one empty bin--a place to throw the winter's kitchen waste
  • the spring chore of spreading compost has already been done
  • someone got some exercise and kept warm while she was shoveling out the compost bin

November is a great time to do some spring chores, sort of like prepping for a big dinner party days (or months!) ahead.

How do we prep ourselves for the coming winter season?
  • We can prune our collection of stuff. Recycle the stuff we haven't used in the past 12 months.
  • We can focus on the mission statement of our lives. What's most important to the purpose of our life?
  • Get some exercise.

Several of my friends are in the Heavenly Messenger program at Spirit Rock Meditation Center this week.

Heavenly messengers are all around us, telling about aging, illness, and death. One of their names is November. Another is Compost.
Are we listening?
