    Bought a reusable coffee filter; no more paper filters - woo hoo!

    Turned the compost pile and started adding compost to all the flower beds

    Research plans to make rain barrels. A friend gave me two barrels; now I just have to figure out where I am going to put them and what is needs for connecting them, putting a spigot on, etc.
