Autumn Leaves, a Compost Bin, & Slowing Down

So much balancing in parenting, living, loving, working. I love it all and I am still learning how to be present with it all.
 
Yesterday, Little Lotus and I made a compost bin for our balcony. We’re so excited! We have so many veggie scraps and several indoor veggie plants to feed.
Here are the steps we followed.
 
SOME OF OUR MATERIALS
 
WE DRILLED HOLES IN THE BOTTOM AND SIDES FOR VENTILATION & DRAINAGE.
 
THEN WE ADDED A LAYER OF DAMP NEWSPAPER,
 
AND A LAYER OF POTTING SOIL.
 
NEXT WE ADDED OUR FOOD SCRAPS,
 
AND OUR RED WIGGLER WORMS (WE’RE BEGINNING WITH 100 WORMS).
 
WE TOPPED OUR BIN OFF WITH ANOTHER LAYER OF SHREDDED DAMP NEWSPAPER.
 
WE PLACED OUR BIN ON SMALL BLOCKS INSIDE OF ANOTHER BIN TO ALLOW DRAINAGE, THEN WE PLACED THE LID ON LOOSELY
 
Today I noticed quite a few fruit flies around in our bin so we’re going on a walk to collect autumn leaves for our bin.
 
Little Lotus is watching Miss Spider’s Sunny Patch Friends on TV. I really like this show, because it’s about a big family who live in a cozy tree house… beautiful. The message of this episode is slowing down to see all of the beauty around us… I hear that loud and clear!
