    These 'one time challenges' have been a great way to get several things off my "I need to do that" list.

    Being outside in San Franciso this weekend makes walking easy to add time and distance.  A good reminder to mix it up at home and find new places to walk.

    Less plastic bags, but there is still so much plastic... I need to look at what else I can do.

    I learned from a food documentary that mushrooms can make vitamin D!  I had no idea that if you slice freshly picked mushrooms and let them sit in the sun for awhile, they will absorb more vitamin  D before you cook them.

    A good reminder during my eco challenge: 

    On my walk today, listening to The Other Wes Moore I heard this-   "... then he said something I'll never forget, when it's time for you to leave this school, leave your job, or even leave this earth, you make sure that you work hard to make sure that it ever mattered that you were here...The notion that life is transient."
