Woke up this morning to a blanket of powdery white snow every where. I barely saw where the sidewalk ends and the road begins. Our dog, Maggie, was very excited to explore the new addition to her front yard and the corner park. I spotted my neighbor shoveling snow. Families out with their sleds and skis. Two guys on their skis actually went zooming down our street! The snow kept coming until late afternoon, along with bursts of gusty wind. Now all is quiet and Maggie is resting for another snow day in the city.

During volunteer orientation, I learned so much about putting together an eco-friendly event from the staff. It is amazing to know that, through the planning and hard work of all staff and volunteer, over 90% of the trash from the event was diverted from the landfill!
There are many ways to show your love for the earth. The most important thing to remember is that you can be green at any level. Check out this interview of Ed Begley, Jr. in body+soul magazine for inspiration.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Exactly one year ago today I was celebrating all things Irish in New Orleans. A nice lady told us to be sure and catch the St. Patrick's Day Parade because it was like Mardi Gras for the locals. It sure was! My friends and I had so much fun trying to catch all those green and white beads. No, no need to lift any tops here. It was a nice way to end our week of volunteering.
