Tilly is bouncing a ball around in an attempt to coax either me or Maddie off of our chair for some playtime, but we're too cozy to give in to her.
I just came in from dumping my compost container onto the pile. Over the summer Neal and I talked quite a bit about ways we could leave a smaller footprint. His work is in the environmental field, after all. He started to take the bus, which has been great not just for saving gas, but also reducing stress. A month or so ago, we decided to reduce the garbage we put out by starting a compost pile, and while I haven't kept track of the amount that has gone out back instead of the garbage can, I'd bet it's at least one full can.
There's a veggie garden and lessons in canning planned for next summer. Little changes. That's what we're striving for, and I'd love it if you left a comment with your suggested little change.
