Greetings and salutations

You know when you don't do something that you are supposed to do and the longer that you leave it undone, the harder it gets to do? Well, that is what it is like writing in a blog. Unless you commit to writing regularly, it gets forgotten. Well I am back and I will be blogging regularly (here I go, setting myself up for failure.....)

I have almost finished reading "Sleeping Naked is Green" by Vanessa Farquharson. She committed to 365 acts of green, wrote a blog about it and then turned it into a book. She doesn't set out to write a resource book, she isn't writing it as a how to, she is just telling it like it was for her and with that comes some laughs and insight on how difficult it can be. I am enjoying it.

I am reading two books at the same time though. One is "Sleeping Naked is Green" and the other is "Slow Death by Rubber Duck". So I laugh a little reading Sleeping Naked and then cry a little reading Slow Death. Slow Death is a much darker book and is about how the toxic chemistry of everyday life affects our heath.....not a comedy that is for sure.

Now all I can think about now is the pacifier than my children had in their mouth for days, months, years!! Or the teething ring, or the rattle that they chewed on. Sorry kids....I honestly didn't know any better at the time.

The best part of reading books like these is that it makes you think and it makes you question and that is half the battle isn't it?

Until tomorrow.....
