so with my new job i've had lots more time for knitting and thus reflection.

here's what i've been thinking about: it's green

  • i've finished reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver.
  • do i really want to be a Costco member any more? they carry a variety of organic foods and some eco cleaning products... but i just don't know.
  • The Boulder Farmer's Market is hosting this good event: Save the date Septeber 15 (Saturday) EAT LOCAL! CELEBRATION. Come join us in a community celebration of our local foodshed! Speakers, demonstrations, tasting, music and more! Sponsored by Boulder County Farmers' Markets, BOULDER COUNTY GOING LOCAL!, Boulder Valley Relocalization, and Boulder County Independent Business Alliance. Inaugural publication release of Boulder County's EAT LOCAL! Resource Guide, a complete guide to the local foodshed! One Boulder Plaza (13th & Canyon), 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
  • i've been watching It's Not Easy Being Green. you really should watch all the video clips. i watch it at 10pm and then feel compelled to turn my entire balcony into a vegetable patch and hitch up a wind turbine.
  • i've been lurking here, here, and here.
  • and there is this going on too.
  • i *heart* organic yarn.
and there you have it. i've wanted to share this for awhile, but couldn't organize it. this is simple.

Boulder seems like a very "green" area to live. It's on our list of places to think about moving - green and good schools are high on our list of priorities, and it seems like Boulder's really conducive to those.

I can't even tell you how much I've been thinking "green" lately. Every decision I make I think about how it's impacting something else. It makes me feel better knowing I'm conscious about those things.
