    Well.  Here we are.  Thanks for the consciousness.

    What I learned that while I was smug in my enviro footprint I am a huge energy glutton because of my diet that is not local, not organic, not vegan, and only 3/4 vegetarian.  Wow.  Food.  We should've all been plants instead of animals. Most plants don't eat other life in order to live themselves.  Really bad evolutionary plan there.  So thank...

    There's something really heart-punching  in getting rid of stuff--the stuff is so imbued with so many memories, and for that, has a real psychic connection. You pick an old towel, and remember a summer at the pool or washing the neighbor's cocker spaniel that you took to the stream when you weren't supposed to.  You find a backpack with the...

The firefighters had an exhibit of their "brush" fire engine, their equipment: hand tools, pumps, hoses, chain saw, and the fire shelters (called shake-and-bakes), and spent a couple hours talking about their work and the fire science...

    Well, there went my vegan day. I forgot when I went with a friend to his daily Starbucks and had a latte (using the "for here" cup and NOT the to-go cup).  So then I just gave up and also had a cheese sandwich.

    On my paper reduction:  I started this project in August, and requested paperless on bank and weekly investment letters, and I think the paper is reduced as much as possible even though I STILL get some statements on paper.

    Okay, I got the almond milk for my next vegan day challenge.  Whew. Thanks for the recommendation.

    I'm decluttering but really ineffectually.  I'm just moving stuff from one place to the other in preparation for a garage sale. I should just donate it and get rid of it, maybe drop clothes at a homeless camp since winter is coming on, but I don't even know where the camps are now that the police moved the people out of the Railyard....
