    I haven't been so great about checking in lately! But this weekend, I bottled some kombucha. I'm still trying to learn how to make it.

    One of the habits that I've made over the years is to make my own fire starters. I do a lot of camping and have a wood stove in the house. I save dryer lint and egg cartons and make homemade fire starters - https://thedyrt.com/magazine/lifestyle/diy-fire-starter-ideas/

    Joshua B challenged us to plant a tree! If you can't plant one, maybe there are ways that you can support organizations that do this kind of work! Friends of Trees is one of them! I have received trees from them in the past and one time I volunteered to do a neighborhood tree planting by bike! It was really fun to get to know my neighbors and neighborhood. https://friendsoftrees.org/

    I used to buy a loaf of bread a week that was in plastic bag. I tried baking my own bread but I eat way more than I have time to bake. About a year ago, I signed up for a local bread delivery service called Starter Bread. It's really great. They bake the bread in their PDX home and deliver it wrapped in paper.

    Today, I walked to the local coffee shop instead of the Starbucks. It's a little longer of a walk but I made the time. Also remembered to bring my bags to the store and containers for getting coffee and sugar in bulk.

    Today I stepped away from work and did 10 minutes of yoga and then emptied the dishwasher and listened to music.

    I should buy in bulk more. Today I used some powdered milk that I probably could have bought in bulk.
