    It was fun doing the challenge.  It made me more aware of conserving our eco system.

    Went for a walk today.  Not very far but it was a good walk.  Tomorrow if it is still raining I will clean house.  And I need to clean out our fish pond.

    We have 5 Koi fish.

      Cleaning out the koi pond can't be nearly as bad as the video I saw at Rocky Reach Dam tour today where they looked for lost data tags from fish in pond - disgusting!!

    Today was a little cooler.  Opened the windows for a while, then about 5 I closed them.  Worked outside pulling weeds, that way I don't have to use roundup.

      I heard a recent study about how Round-up changes the genetics of generations of consumers.  It's great that you aren't using it!

    I worked outside today in the flower beds, getting all the weeds out.  I save all my geraniums each year, so I have a lot to plant.  They are beautiful.

    Today has been a relaxing day.  Isn't that what you are to do on Mother's Day.  We have a fish pond with 5 Koi fish and I fed them today.  They like to eat every day.

  • Linda Vickery 5/10/2019 4:59 PM
    Today I worked outside, pulling weeds and watering my plants.  It is a beautiful day.

  • Linda Vickery 5/10/2019 7:48 AM
    Today is a new day to begin the challenge.  It will be a fun day.

  • Linda Vickery 5/10/2019 7:47 AM
    I joined because I thought that it would be fun to do the challenge.

    • Jeanne Poirier 5/10/2019 8:59 PM
      I don't know you Linda - but I am super enjoying the challenge this year and the connection it is bringing in a world of disconnect.  More power to you!

  • Linda Vickery 5/09/2019 8:06 AM
    I like to recycle and eat lots of fruit and veggies.


  • Linda Vickery 5/03/2019 9:15 PM
    I love to garden and compost.

      Not sure I've met you at an Interfaith meeting before.  I know Susan Evans, Joe/Merry Roy, Jim Allyn, Sue Kane, Patricia St.  August, Sara O'daffer & Irene Morrow.  Hope you have zinnias and basil in your garden someplace.  Best of luck bringing it to harvest!!
