This blog was started, and is intended to illustrate that environmentalism happens through small acts, is not difficult, and that it does not always have to be some big life changing event that forces you to live in the tree tops with no electricity. All that being said, one of my small acts was to start this blog to gain some friends to help me save the world.

Few Announcements

Many happy greetings to all. I wanted to briefly discuss a new conservation effort I have recently started to practice.  Pretty sure that I have mentioned that where I currently live there is a major drought.  So not letting myself get too overwhelmed my the macro big picture I thought about what I could do on the micro small picture level to help conserve water.  I do all the required actions and some non required.  I recycle as much water as I can and conserve where I can.  But I found a new way that actually makes me feel like I am really helping.  Disclaimer this may be old news to some folks, but in my house this is a new one, so bear with me.  Anyway we know not to run the water while brushing our teeth, we know to water certain things at certain times of the day, keeping showers short, but what about taking that last one (the shower thing) one step further.  I do keep showers short, and only when needed (I know some that might cringe at that thought), but what about turning off the water during your shower when you are washing you hair?  As I mentioned you may be steps ahead of me and doing this already, just go with it.  I feel like it really helps save some water.  I was skeptical at first, what if the water gets cold and I freeze to death when I turn in back on?  But that has not happened (at least as of yet).  Yet another example of a super small action that can really help.  It is super easy, the water is off for mere seconds, but what a great way to conserve.
It is, like I have said many times before, that you have do to something, doing nothing is not an option.  And this is an option that is so undisruptive to our daily lives.  I am not telling anyone to not shower, but rather just turn off the water for a bit while you do shower.  It is always hard for people to do extreme things, for example before I started doing this I had proposed the idea of just not washing our hair at all.  That was quickly shot down, probably too extreme of an idea for this family at this time.  So I was happy to compromise, did some research and found this idea and ran with it.  Remember we do not all have to go live in the tree tops to show that we want to help.
So that part of the post was the first announcement, this part of the post is the second announcement (hence the title few announcements). So as many have noticed I have taken an unofficial break from the blogging.  I am announcing that I am hereby making it official.  Although I still love this blog and believe very firmly in all the words that I have expressed on it, I, at this point in time, am going to take a break. As schedules, priorities, and responsibilities change we mere mortal humans must adapt and change with them, which is what I am doing (sort of).  I hope to come back to it one day very soon.  When I can really kick my butt into high gear.  Until that time I hope that everyone out there who has read this blog, and all those who do not, will start saving the world one day at a time.  We need to make sure that everyday we pass along some peace and love towards each other and the planet.
