    So, this may sound weird, and I didn't set out for it to happen this way, but yesterday I had this moment while picking up after the dogs in the morning.  The day before I finally got myself to the ecostation to fill a couple of containers of compost (25%biowaste, 25%horsemanure, 50%greenwaste)  because since we moved here, my dogs have been in...

    I did the footprint calculator sent out from the first week and found it so discouraging that all my motivation to continue went out the window, especially in the face of a difficult work week and the inability to make it to class.  (though my daughter was super cute in her class play)  Luckily, I have a good friend in the class too who made me...

    I got two food related DVDs from the library, and my husband and I watched them both. First was "Forks over Knives" which is health oriented. It does a good job of discussing the  history that has led us to become a meat/diary/sugar-centric culture, and the science that is now showing the myriad benefits of adopting a whole-foods,...

    You guys, I'm so disappointed in my Carbon footprint. I thought we were doing better than we are. It looks like we really need to make some changes to our driving habits and meat eating. Oy! I  really thought we were doing better than we were. It was an eye-opener to what counts more than others. Already we've decreased our meat eating habits....

    This challenge (to spend 5 mins each day outside practicing gratitude for nature) is easy-peasy!  And fun, and a great excuse to stop and take it all in and appreciate it all. Yay!

    In the education women and girls department, here is the volunteer sign-up link for the Expanding Your Horizons day. It's a day of STEM for young ladies 5-8th grade. An overview of the event is:  http://nmnwse.org/lawis/eyh/index.shtml. I've been the MC for several years now, and it's great fun to see the young women start to interact with...

    I can't get this image out of my mind as I read about China refusing plastics for recycling. It makes me question deeply what does China truly do with the waste? https://static01.nyt.com/images/2018/01/12/world/europe/12UK-recycling-2/merlin_131863700_1975c292-ab02-4536-8dcb-299d9c622576-master768.jpg from the article...

    I completed my challenges for the week.  I did some reading about the chromium plume in the aquifer in Mortandad Canyon.  For most on my life I have lived in a desert where water is especially precious.  In Texas I formed good water use habits, but it has been 1 1/2 years since I moved to LA and need to put these processes in place again.  I...

    Calculated my "Ecological Footprint" for this week's discussion. My overshoot day is Oct 30, and we need to find another 0.2 Earths to provide my lifestyle to everyone :-(

    And now we are six! Welcome Sandra, Jamie, Alia, Shannon and Lisa!  Glad you all figured out how to sign up. Good luck with your challenges, and I'll see you tomorrow night :-)
