    I don't think you should be able to buy points. It's good to donate to a cause, but takes the work out of the challenge.

    Throughout the eco-challenge, I concentrated my efforts on separating trash from recyclables, turning off lights every time I left a room (especially classrooms on campus), turning down the thermostat in my residence, and combining trips in my car to reduce gasoline consumption.

    The world just keeps presenting my eyes with such beauty!  I am loving the scent, colors, and slight bite to the air that Fall brings.  I'm sad to see the challenge ending as it has been so wonderful to see and read about what others have been doing, exploring, and experiencing this year.

    A day that made it easy to make entry in my nature journal and to list gratitudes. Amen, Alleuluia!

      So beautiful, isn't it?!?  This is among the most beautiful Fall days here in Oregon.  Great image!

    A little sunshine made for a grand autumn day. Jack-o-lanterns - natural beauty; human whimsy!

    Sure have had some pretty sunrises.  I love the way the world wakes up in the morning, birds begin singing, the sky begins to lighten, it's just beautiful!  I'm grateful to have discovered the nature options in the ecochallenge for this year, they have been a real pleasure to enact!

    A late fall bloom. Lovely.

      Actually the bloom was found by my grand nephew on a walk with my niece. They shared it on Facebook. They live Washington state! I have seen similar flowers in the wild in my part of North Portland. Saw some California poppies also.

      Love all of the flowers we have in the Pacific Northwest.  Please share my thanks with your grand nephew, grateful to get to see this!

      What a beauty!  Where did you see that lovely blossom?  Was it anywhere near campus?

  • Carole Strawn, SNJM 10/21/2017 11:48 PM
    What a downpour of a day!

      Wasn't it just?  Loading concert gear in and out in it was pretty fun too!  The wind was amazing, whipping the trees with great force.

    I have been doing the journal each day for 1. nature observations, 3 per day and 2. gratitudes, 3 per day. Wow, how that simple little task has opened up the eyes and the soul.

    Another perfect day to enjoy nature and being out in it.  My thermostat at home is set to 60 when home and 50 when gone, so definitely keeping the power usage down that way!  I'll miss reading everyone's posts and seeing photos of nature experiences when this challenge is over.  Very much enjoying the community aspect of this, just wonderful to see what everyone has chosen to engage in.  Thanks!
