    The Challenge went well, and I learned I have a lot of work yet to do, so I am going to print my challenges, so they don't end just because the Eco Challenge has ended, this are challenges I found are good, and that should continue, and be built on. So my challenges are not ending, but just beginning!

    I am so amazed at this challenge, and how I was able to do some of the challenges listed. I have had a lot of fun. I am going to print these challenges so I can continue them, and some of them I do anyways. I am excited about the community garden where I live, where we are able to grow food, to help our community be more sustainable. What an adventure this has been, and I am excited to go forward with these challenges, so they are no longer challenges, but everyday life!

    My friend just posted how her and her family just went to a local farm and picked some apples, and I am going to ask her to take me with her the next time she goes. It looked like they had a lot of fun, and I can't wait I have never went to pick apples, and I am excited

    I am also going to try canning with my daughter, I have never done it, but I have talked to others that have, and they love it.

    Where I live we are working on a garden as we speak, and I am excited for that


  • Anita Bailey-Huff 10/24/2017 9:00 AM
    I enjoy talking to my friend's, and I enjoy it more that we can talk about social issues, and have different opinions, but still love and respect each other at the end of the day.

  • Anita Bailey-Huff 10/23/2017 8:50 AM
    This challenge is almost over, and I am kind of sad, but I am also glad I am able to incorporate some new things into my daily routine, so I am thankful for the Eco Challenge!

  • Anita Bailey-Huff 10/22/2017 10:27 PM
    I am loving these challenges, and I think I am going to try to get my children to participate in some of them especially those social media ones

  • Anita Bailey-Huff 10/21/2017 9:39 PM
    Even though it is raining hard out side, I still do my walk, and I am feeling so refreshed.
