It's Official

I feel like I should host a grand opening, or have a parade!  I am a dot.com now and my old address should still be swinging you to my new address but just like the post office occasionally makes a mistake...please make a note of my new address.  Thank you.  I want you to keep reading.  My blog lists never did come back so I've been slowly adding back...don't worry I haven't "defriended" anyone.  Eventually I will have recreated my favorite reading spots. 
 While grocery shopping two days ago I walked out with only two essentials from my already short-list.  I had plastic overload!  My tofu comes in a plastic package, my favorite orange juice comes in a plastic jug and my son's favorite nitrate-free turkey dogs come wrapped in a double layer of plastic wrap crap.  Luckily I was able to get the chocolate we needed for cake baking in a cardboard, recyclable box.  My husband reminded me that we used to drink orange juice from the frozen cardboard tubes-not as yummy but it's not plastic. 

Why am I banging my head about plastic, you ask innocently enough...because I made a promise to not bring in any new plastic into the house just a  day or two ago.  The proof is here. I'm committed but I had a glimpse into how difficult it will prove to be.  I asked the butcher at our local grocery store about buying turkey dogs from behind the counter and he chuckled...yes, he did!  I hope what you are passionate about is easy to come by this week!

  1. Wow--this is quite the undertaking. Admirable, but wow. I'm sure I don't realize just how much plastic we go through in our house, though long gone are the plastic bags at least. Good luck!
