    Watching the waves roll in and roll out created a sense of peace for me as a young adult.  They were meditative and helped carry away negative thoughts and renew a sense of calm.

    Okay, so now I've saved two wasps and removed them from my house.  I should get more points.

    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?

    Engaged the kids in shopping for and planting our new garden. Lots of fun in the hot sun.

    I notice the gardening for all the houses, I notice the sounds and where the sun is at the time of the walk or run.  I feel the ground under my feet.  I can smile at people and they can smile back.
