Happy Earth Day!
Here’s a few ways I plan on celebrating:
- With Free Coffee. Starbucks and Caribou are giving out freebies if you bring your own mug. Supposedly coffee’s linked to the Age of Enlightenment (is that a myth?) and I’ve got a lot of writing I want to do, so why not? (Besides, with the tiredness that has set in with Graves’ Disease, I need it! See my article, “I’m a Walking Zombie” for more details.)
- Write without Printing. There are plenty of drafts I don’t print. But at a certain point, I feel it’s important to print because I see things on paper that I don’t always see on the screen. However, I don’t think I need to print as often as I do. So it’s time to figure out another way.
- Donate. We have loads things that have been waiting around to be taken to the donation center so they can be re-used instead of being disposed. Today’s the day to get it done!
- Keep my use of resources to a minimum. Every day I try to be conscious of my energy consumption (besides helping the planet, it cuts costs!). Today I will be hyper-conscious and see if there are new ways we can cut energy consumption in our home.
