batman flew yesterday evening to us 💕🤘
we have by our house so many bats who lives there, but every summer we found dead bats on the ground in hot times like now.
But this little baby was still alive and we brought him to a family who saves bats from death.
they tell us, he or her, is a kid and is in the age where he learns to fly, but he can't it now so good, but he's very healthy and has a chance to live.
when he's finish to learning to fly, he comes back to us and to his mum and his family. his mum will know him from the sound waves. bats are family animals.♡ what a wonder of god. I'm in love with this cute little baby ❤😻 #bat#batman#wonder#of#god#nature#inlove#cute#baby#loveyou#blacky#savetheearth
Baobab Tree also called “upside-down tree” because of its branches resembling roots sticking up.
A legend says that at the beginning of creation, God gave each animal its own tree. Hyena got the job of planting the baobab and she planted it roots in the air.
We’re a real BIG *fan* of our #SparkFire gear! 😜 And thanks to @repreve 💚, our shirts👚 are custom-sized + styled with a 4-way stretch creating an ultra soft, breathable fabric! #TurnitGreen

Since I wasn't able to go to South Dakota for Christmas, I get to celebrate it in June. My brother and his girlfriend got me this bath set. I swear I've never been so excited about a bath set😂 probably because I didn't bring any bath stuff 🙃
The thing I am most excited about is the sea salt scrub. Remember when I posted about making my own sugar scrub? Yeah that wasn't the best idea I've ever had. It worked well! But it attracted all the ants in New Jersey to my bathtub. I had to throw it out, so now I'll be using sea salt scrubs. Y'all should try it 😊
Heute möchte ich euch zwei DIY-Projekte vorstellen, die ich vor ein paar Tagen gemacht habe. Natürlich wurden sie auch schon fleißig getestet 😉 Es handelt sich ganz simpel und Geschirrspülpulver und Klarspüler. Beides habe ich nach einem Rezept von @smarticular.netde gemacht, welche in meinem kleinen schlauen Buch stehen. 😄 Die Rezepte findet ihr jedoch genauso auf der Homepage von #smarticular Für mich war wichtig, dass beides ökologisch, sprich ohne chemische Zusätze ist. Gerade beim Pulver war ich sehr skeptisch, doch was soll ich sagen - es steht meinen alten Taps in nichts nach und ich bin wirklich nicht zimperlich, wenn es um die Nutzung meines Geschirrspülers geht. Das Pulver bewahre ich in einer Metallbox auf, die ich extra für diese Zwecke vor einiger Zeit gekauft habe und für den Klarspüler benutze ich derzeit einfach eine alte Ketchup-Flasche 😀 .
Today I would like to introduce you two DIY projects, which I did a few days ago. Of course, they have already been tested. 😉 it's very simple dishwashing powder and rinse aid. I made both of them according to a recipe from smarticular. For me it was important, that both are ecological, I mean without chemical additives. I was very skeptical about the powder, but I was pleasantly surprised - the effect is like with my previous taps. The powder I keep in a metal box, which I bought just for this purposes some time ago and for the rinse aid I currently use simple an old ketchup bottle. 😀 .
Day 22: Inequality Injustice ⚖️
Don't let my smile from Rio's Carnavale a few months ago fool you ... this is a #TBT picture about vast inequality. Every year, the people of Brazil (and the world) look forward to this festival, where all the favelas (grossly poor neighbourhoods) put on the most spectacular song and dance for days and night on end. The people of the favelas may not be able to feed themselves adequately, resorting to theft and corruption, but they will slave over putting on this show once a year. Brazil is absolutely abundant in its cultural pride, but horribly disparate in its wealth.
This is true around the world, the tremendous amounts of people poverty-stricken and hungry. And western civilisation is largely to blame. Largely destitute nations export their farmed goods like coffee and fruits to make some sort of profit, but it ends up hurting the majority in favour of the few. Multinational companies have forced people out of self-sufficiency and small farms, and the resulting rising local food prices have literally starved them. So, I reiterate - BUY OR GROW LOCALLY. Doing so will:
▫️take power away from multinationals, making it harder for them to extract wealth and the best land from other nations
▫️put power in the hands of our neighbours, many of whom are victims of globalisation ⬇️There are 49 million people in the U.S. who consistently cannot afford a nutritious diet. Watch this super-inspiring Ted Talk from the South Bronx, one of the most impoverished urban areas in our country. This is what America should be about:
Water!💧Do you drink enough water? Start every morning with a cup of lukewarm ginger and/ or lemon water. Some people do well on lemon water, for me it hurts my stomach to drink it first thing in the morning, but the ginger soothes it and generates a bit of inner heat which I need for my yoga practice.
Then throughout the day, keep drinking fresh, clean water. I recommend drinking a glass of water a few minutes before every meal. Try not to drink water while eating or after eating as it slows down your digestion and can cause stomach issues if you have a sensitive stomach. If you buy water, look for water that are sodium free as well as fluoride free. Fluoride may be good for our teeth but it certainly does not belong in our guts! Also, if you do tend to buy water, see if you could rather have a good quality filter installed in your kitchen. It might cost a lot initially, but you'll save money in the long run as well as the planet! Our health is directly linked to the health of the planet.🌍 If you are someone who do not enjoy drinking water, you could make infused water in the mornings, such as a few pieces of watermelon and mint, that you can drink on for the rest of the day. Or, if you want bubbles, try sparkling water with fresh lemon squeezed in and a teaspoon of maple syrup if needed. As long as you get your H2O in!💚
The top three sources of greenhouse gasses in the United States are electricity at 29%, transportation at 27%, and industry at 21%. These three sources all have to do with burning fossil fuels for energy. 67% of our electricity comes from coal and natural gas, and 90% of fuel used for transportation includes gasoline and diesel which are petroleum based. Although we still heavily depend on fossil fuels, 10% of electricity now comes from solar and wind energy, which is a record high.

Out of 137 years of record-keeping, May 2017 was the second warmest May. This May was 0.88 degrees celsius hotter than the average May temperature from 1951-1980. Last year’s May was 0.93 degrees hotter, and the third hottest May was in 2014. As you can see, the hottest temperatures all occurred within the 21st century because they are all part of global warming caused by increased carbon emissions. These seemingly small changes in average temperature is very alarming as these are average GLOBAL temperatures.
