The ground is white, and I'm still green.

Alternate title: I am Daisy,the Compostermom, and I won't let snow stop me!

I sold a crate of cookbooks to a Used Book store for $20.
I walked to work during a snowstorm. It was fun, to tell you the truth.
Compost continues, despite the cold. We have a bin within reach of the garage.
Chuck used pieces of the Christmas wreath to provide bramble, a little bit of shelter, for the neighborhood rabbits.
My lunchbag is re-usable, and I usually bring a cloth napkin along.
On Soup Day at work, most of us bring our own bowls instead of using plastic.
Litter box remnants (to put it delicately) still end up outside on what will be a berm next spring.
We're pulling out frozen vegetables from last summer to make a delicious beef stew.

Is that only eight? Our lives are infused with eco-conscious behaviors. I'm sure there's more. Let's see:
- shopped at consignment store recently for a new jacket and purse
- donated another box to Goodwill
- taught Amigo to use anti-static dryer balls when he does laundry
- gave Amigo a crank-powered radio for his birthday. No batteries to change!

Yep. I think we're still green, even though the ground is covered with white. Or ice.
