    Checked out the nearest bus stop.  Probably should have left a bit earlier so it wouldn’t be a hot trek.

    This time of year is perfect to dry bedding outside so they smell great and feel crisp.

    Chose to carpool for a couple of work related matters instead of taking separate cars.

    Plan on taking the dogs for a long walk on this cooler, rainy day.  The pups love it!

    Garden is perking up.  I am super excited for the day that I can harvest my own produce.

    I am grateful for the community that we live in.

    Planted a garden for a friend and enlisted the help of my daughter.  She wasn't thrilled about the labor but enjoyed the sense of accomplishment when we were done!

    Helped someone in the store come up with a strategy to compost :)

    I recently learned that H & M will collect used clothing or textiles to recycle.  In exchange, they will give a certain percentage off a future purchase from their store.  What a great way to help reduce waste in the fashion industry.

    While proofing my daughter's paper on Food, Inc. and Blue Gold: World Water Wars, I am reminded of the importance of education and awareness when it comes to our food and water resources.
