Natural resources are materials and components (something that can be used) that can be found within the environment. Every man-made product is composed of natural resources (at its fundamental level). A natural resource may exist as a separate entity such as fresh water, and air, as well as a living organism such as a fish, or it may exist in an alternate form which must be processed to obtain the resource such as metal ores, oil, and most forms of energy.

Natural resources occur naturally within environments that exist relatively undisturbed by mankind, in a natural form. A natural resource is often characterized by amounts of biodiversity and geodiversity existent in various ecosystems.

Hope this explanation and example of our topic for the week will give you much Inspiration for the challenge ,Sure you can find some interesting photo and Article. HAPPY SUNDAY POST.

Spent the day moving… (yawn!)

 

My husband and I finished the move from the rented condo to the home we own in Borrego Springs.  Our tenant moved out last month and it didn’t make sense to rent the condo any longer.

We lived in our home back in 1994-1997 before we moved to Palm Desert… and have leased it to others since then.  It is a three bedroom, two bath and he was living in a one bedroom condo for a few months… now he has a garage to tinker in, and lots of room to roam about.

I go to stay there once a week for a day or two… but we maintain our full time residence in P.D.

We are blessed to have choices.

I miss him being home every night, but we are grateful for the awesome job he has as the QA/QC manager for a 200 acre solar project.

I will go back to Borrego tomorrow to meet with Larry the Cable Guy, just kidding, don’t know his name LOL.

Taking my camera tomorrow so I can take some photos for my challenge.

Missed a day and look forward to getting back on the horse tomorrow.

Penicillin prior to dental work… ewww!

This week is going to be a grand make over at the dentist so I get to start my round of penicillin before the procedure.  Took my first dose four hours ago and here goes another…

I am feeling a bit strange, since I haven’t put many drugs in my system for so many years.

It is a mixed blessing, glad to finally have the dental work done…

but that means sitting in the dentist’s chair on Thursday so he can make my smile beautiful!

Faith, not fear, faith not fear, faith not fear!

I trust this dentist, he has been very gentle so far… but leading up to the big day I will keep positive, in the moment and here, not there!

Before and after our remodel- solar efficient!!!
