Well, this year is just moving along for me .. Spring is always a sign of 'rebirth' and 'new beginnings'. My Mom would always say how beautiful it was to watch Mother Nature wake up from her sleep and the beautiful 'new green' color on trees.
My garden here in the Bronx is slowly waking up,the day lilies are about 2 inches tall already, as are my irises. The grass is even starting to act up.! This year I am planning to put some blueberries & raspberries in, and some 'bee boxes'.
Part of my thing is 'recycling'. Friends bring me their peanuts and bubble wrap that I use here at SunRose. However, there is an area that some folks do not know what to do with :
their old / broken electronics i.e. cell phones, old laptops, etc.
This is an informative article:

My niece, Christie Marie Tartaro, who is also my 'house mate' at the 1120 Club here in the Bronx... is doing the Revlon Run/Walk for Women. Some of us are survivors and some, though fought the good fight, have moved on to the next plane.

On Saturday, May 3rd I will be participating in the 11th annual Revlon Run/Walk for Women in NYC. This 5k race will help raise money for women's cancer research (breast and ovarian cancers).
While I've been hitting the gym 5-6 days a week, I'm planning on walking the 5k with my Mom and my friend Peggy.
I have set a personal fundraising goal of $500 for this great cause. I am hoping that you will be able to help me achieve my goal! Remember, no donation is too small!

until next time ~Rosanne
