An autumn day in nature

Autumn is my favorite season. I like the way it changes. Everything changes, the trees get naked and every fragrance changes day by day.

I like to walk in the fallen leaves. Jump in and throw them away.

I like it when my breath is visible in the cold air.
Candles in the dark. Look at how the birds sit in lines and then fly south.

And I like the smell of wet fallen leaves. In this season, the smell of dust is different even after the rain. Seeing the first rimy leaf on the cold ground. Autumn makes me happy.

I love to see the world around me change and slowly fall asleep to come back to life in the spring.

And it’s time to watch the birds on the patio or in the garden with a warm cup of tea.
And now is the time to pull on the warm wool socks.

I love the mosses under the fallen leaves.

And lichen branches all over the ground.

At this point, I feel complete peace and almost nothing exists. Neither the rush nor the things I should have to do. It feels a very safe feeling.

I like to look at the birds, so from the middle of autumn to the end of winter I make food for them.

I love the last strong sunbeams on my face. I want to enjoy every moment before winter comes and nobody knows when the sun will shine again. Waiting for days, weeks, months.

This is the last time I pick a dose of herbs.
Yarrow, Nettle, Oxalis….

It was one of the last days of autumn when I can collect herbs. Maybe the last time this year.
I’ll dry them like that, I’m getting ready for the winter.

 

ECOSIA – Environment friendly search engine

Plant real trees with just a few clicks!

Not long ago I found Ecosia, which is a search engine.
They have an incredibly valuable mission.
That is, at least 80 percent of the profit is spent on planting trees, where the biggest problem is: in Africa, in Burkina Faso.

We can’t go every day to pick up garbage or volunteer or live without Zero waste.
We can try, but honestly  it is not easy if the workplace or other reasons make it difficult.
But it is great to have tools in everyday life, and
I can help a little to the Earth on my average days.

That’s why ECOSIA has been created.

We can do something for the greener future of the Earth with using internet.
We help them with every search to make our planet greener.
What I am really happy about is that they have more than 7 million users and more and they planted 57 million trees. (Based on 2019 data)

Ecosia is easy to use, just like Google.
Using it in office work, I can also contribute a little to the brighter future.
Those who sit in front of their machines (for work or anything)
it is an opportunity to take part in environmental protection without changing their usual habits.

How does it work?
Just like Google, or other search engines, is generating revenue from edits and advertisements.
Our search on the internet, through advertisements and ranking of search results, is definitely making money for the search engine.
Then I looked closely, and with Ecosia we can be sure that 80 percent of the money earned from searches will turn out to be good.
As “Earth Warriors”, we take a little money from Microsoft and Google to give back to Earth through Ecosia, who now needs our support immensely.
Ecosia has full financial publicity, and tree planting donations can be downloaded for anyone from Ecosia Dropbox account.
Ecosia can be added quickly and easily to the search engine right from the start page.
I’ve already done this with a few clicks.
Since its launch in 2009, a total of 57,764,698 (May 15, 2019) trees were planted from the donations of Ecosia, which warmed my heart.
Until I think again, Earth’s trees are rapidly disappearing as a result of human intervention.
48 large soccer-field-sizes forest are cut per every minute,
this means more than 150,000 square kilometers per year
and I can’t tell you how many trees.
This means a little smaller area each year than Hungary (my home country).

I can only encourage you!
Use Ecosia!
Do it for the environment, try to be sustainable, even if you never reach the full Zero waste.
Try Recycling Everyday, so that we don’t have to lie to our grandchildren, “We tried everything.”

 

Menstrual cup – What is this …..?

A couple of years ago I met the menstrual cup.
Then I thought, “What? They’re crazy! What’s that stupid things?”
Then as I met the “Zero Waste” more and more, I also met the Reusable pads and others.
I was wondering what it was, if it was something of an epoch-making solution? 🤔
As I began to pay more attention to myself and my health and the environment, I found a YouTube channel.

This is not advertising, it’s just a recommendation!
This is Hormonmentes (hormone-free) from Janka.

This is a Hungarian YouTube channel, but if you know English channel in the same topic, please let me know in the comment section.❤
Janka Talking about “taboos” that shouldn’t be taboo, so I just loved it!

Update!!!😘😘😘
You send me an English YouTube channel about this topic, so the video is here:

I don’t want to describe the way it works, nor to say that it’s good and everyone needs it.
Watch the video if you are interested.
I would just like to tell you what experiences I have about this.
So after a lot of thinking and watching, I decided to try it out.

I counted one: In a month with a package insert.
Approximately: One month = a pack of menstrual pads.
One pack is about 2-3 EUR
This is 24-36 EUR in a year (or more)
So one menstrual cup = 1 year menstrual pads
But you can use it for years.
I counted, thought and bought it…

I’ve been looking at it for a while, because It was still a little bizarre for me.
Now I would like to tell you about the first two days of experience.
I’m a little shy, but I think that women have to talk about it (with other women).😉

The disinfection step went easily.
Because disinfection is most important.
Before every use!

The first day was very skeptical and cautious
so I used a menstrual pad too.
But the surprising experience was that it worked perfectly for 12 hours.
The placement was not easy at first.
First I was thinking, How this thing works? What and how should I?
But then I managed to do it.

Ladies who regularly use tampons: this is a big advantage!

The second day has gone easier insertion,
better to say, less …. uncomfortable.

And the “take-off” was surprisingly easy.
I’m not going to explain why, but first try to take off in the shower!
I’m over the second day.
No leaks, airtight, not uncomfortable.😊

I finished the day off with a great feeling.
No taboo from today!
No longer have to miss the wellness, no missed swimming pool!
I can go on any tour on the “period” days too!😍

But the most important thing!
All women have experienced in their life (or will be),
that it is not a matter the routine.
The rush of life, the “just one more question” on the way to the WC, or for whatever reason, the blood was everywhere…
(And if you have no luck, of course in a white dress, etc.)
I think this is a familiar problem that I don’t have to explain.

Not only am I happy, but I also feel an uplifting plus freedom!
Funny, but after this two days I just don’t understand why I haven’t found it so far, or why I haven’t used it before.

Plants and I

The great benefit of living in the city was that I learned to deal with plants.

There are those who take it for granted, but to understand how great this is for me, I tell you a little bit about myself.

It is incredibly important to me to surround a lot of green.
And I’m not talking about color, but plants.
I grew up in a place where I could see the forest from the window.
Every season was beautiful and soothing here.

Hinyázik, hogy 5 perc sétára az ember már kint van az erdőben, a csendben és nyugalomban🌲.

Mivel sok időmet töltöttem kint, így az innen-onnan kapott növényeim sajnos megsínylették.
Sokszor elfelejtettem locsolni, vagy épp hogy túllocsoltam őket. Az újabb jöjevényeket inkább elajándékoztam, hogy ne jussanak ugyan arra a sorsra.
Azt hiszem, hogy akkoriban talán azért nem zavart ez, mert édesanyámnak is rengeteg növénye volt az igazi és utánozhatatlan természet pedig 5 percre.

Ahányszor sikerült elhervasztanom egy újabb kapott növényt mindig Tistou – A zöld hüvelykujjak című meséje jutott eszembe és valahol egy kicsit szégyelltem magam, hogy nem tartottam őket életben.

Az egész növény mizéria egy maggal kezdődött.
Az egyik barátnőm ajánlotta, hogy próbáljam ki az avokádót.
Finom volt 😊 és jó nagy magja, amit bedugtam egy egyik virágládába.

Aztán teltek múltak a hónapok és én el is felejtettem az egészet.
Az egyik nap pedig arra figyeltem fel, hogy valami kinőtt. Egy 5-6 cm-es valami.
Két nap múlva már 10 centi volt, rá pár napra pedig már túlnőtt a 15 cm-en.
Azthiszem kíváncsi lettem, hogy mi is lesz ebből 😊.

Egészen kiskorom óta ez volt az első növény, amit magról neveltem.
Gyerekkoromban anyukám és az iskola is megismertetett ezzel, mint mindenki mást, de valahogy most mégis újdonságnak tűnt.
Csak nőtt és nőtt. Ő túl akart élni én pedig segítettem neki.
Ma már egy méteres fa lett belőle és növekedik szépen.

Mostanra egy egész növényarzenál növekszik nálam. Kedvet kaptam a nevelésükhöz, és otthon is jobban érzem magam a sok zöld között.

Szerintem mások is vannak így a növényekkel, hogy “fura” kapcsolatuk van és egyszerűen nem megy a nevelés.
De csak ajánlani tudom. Hihetetlen jó érzés látni, ahogy napról napra nőnek és egy csomó új dolgot tanultam velük kapcsolatban.
