    The Durham Launch the Future Team was awesome.  I'm grateful for their competitive spirit.  This year was just a warm up.  Next year, we are going to wrangle up more competition and have a party with our competition when it's over - with organic, plant-based food!

    Here are the activities I'm challenging myself to:  1) no seafood for two weeks (I'd better eat some today!) 2) At least 7 hours of sleep a night (this is going to be difficult) 3) write down 3 things a day for which I'm grateful, 4) Research the toxic chemicals in my home, 5) Brush my teeth with the water turned off, 6) Raise money for a nonprofit (i.e., Climate Cooperators!) 7) Use recyclable bags only 8) Use only recyclable utensils and dishes for my lunches, 9) Spend at least 6 minutes a day outside in gratitude.
