Day 3: Going Green

Kind of amazing to see this photo now, and look up on my walks these days and see only branches and sky.  Rejuvenating both the tree and the earth, these leaves are wonderfully recycled each year.

We're doing much better in that department as well.  Everything that we don't eat goes back into our compost bin (or tossed into the woods, when that is full).  And since we're not eating any meat or dairy these days -- that means *everything*.  Nice and simple.  And organic.  And helpful to the earth.

Here's to going green this year.  And to the return of Spring ;-)

  • Donation:  McDougall Education and Research Foundation (to investigate health and diet connections)
  • Exercise:  Nice after-dinner walk with Carol & Frito (that would never have happened without this resolution ;-)  (35 mins)

I like your resolutions and I look forward to the photos. What a great idea to give something away everyday - I'm going to try to do that with material items at least once a week, on the supportive/emotional level I'll continue to do that everyday.

Thanks for the visit Boswell.

I will confess to stealing the idea for giving something away every day from someone else:

I admit to having a "giving problem", as in, I don't give enough. This is my excuse to make me focus on that area in my life, and see what comes of it.

I feel good about the resolution.

Please check back and keep me honest about those pictures. That one should be easy, but we'll see ;-)
