    Reflecting on this past year, and thinking about how much gas I saved and fossil fuel

      Absolutely! I remember seeing how clear the sky was during the first 2 weeks of SIP. What a difference of not having cars congest the highway did to the air! I think we should continue the WFH practice or a hybrid of it to truly spare the air. It took a world-wide pandemic to make us see the influence of technology and our lifestyles on our environment.

    Today was so hot!  But still got out there to do some weeding in between meetings and work.  It's a nice break outside and I get to enjoy my garden.

    Looking at it a different way... My kids refusal to take showers and baths are helping the environment!

    Getting out every day, I have lost some weight and gained a nice tan.  Now, how to get rid of a mask line?

  • Reflection Question
    Food Plant an Herb Garden
    Consider the ways you can garden: a plot of land? a patio container? hanging basket? windowsill gardens? What would work best for your living situation and lifestyle?

    What works best for me is container gardening.  I have the space, but I have trouble with gophers digging from underneath and eating everything!
