I feel like the past couple weeks I've been finding some great ways to live my five, despite all the (fun) chaos that surrounds the holiday season. I thought I'd share a couple quick things I've been up to.
1. Our long-time washing machine broke this past week, so I was in the market for a new machine. I decided it was a wise and earth-friendly investment to put a little extra money into buying a high-efficiency machine. It feels good to know I'm using less energy and water every time I launder my clothes!
2. Friday, December 11 was Lights Out Lunch day here in Ft. Collins, and I wholeheartedly supported it! From noon until 1p.m., individuals, businesses and local schools turned off the lights and ate lunch using natural light. What a great way to save energy! My kitchen is south-facing and welcomes quite a bit of natural light through the windows, and I've committed to eat lunch using natural light every day. If you'd like more information about Lights Out Lunch, go to their website at lightsoutlunch.com
3. Finally, I'm participating in Leave a Mark this week! I thought it was a great way to pay it forward and say thanks to all the teachers, librarians and people in my life who helped foster a life-long love of reading. Thank you!
What about you? Are you living your Five?
