Today was a day filled with green .. in terms of the environment, not money. Our town (some of friends really – not the town) set up a Greening Greenfield Group. This group has been working to raise money and consciousness around the environment to make this town better. Today was an ice cream social for people who have been helping.

It was utterly delightful to hear all the ideas for making this area more sustainable and having less impact on the environment. And they didn’t even know about Blog Action Day!! I am excited about the idea one local town is trying out. They are a test case of picking up compost at the curb!! I am so excited!
We used to compost and we started running a skunk cafe instead. The smell (skunk, not compost) was terrible so we had to stop. They chewed their way through the animal proof compost bin. One day one of the people who used to live her lifted off the bin and found a skunk in the bin … it was the beginning of the end.
Tomorrow is the big day – Blog Action Day! I know many of you have been writing (and creating) already in preparation for tomorrow. I am delighted that the Greening Greenfield ice cream social came just in time for our Blog Action Day … or else you probably never would have heard of it.
I will respond tomorrow to comments and your blogs … time to live in harmony with myself and rest! I would love to hear about you!
