If you're interested in growing your own organic food, you'll like hearing about the Dervaes family in Pasadena, California. There's a film about what they've done on their small urban homestead and I hope to see it soon. I especially enjoyed seeing them pedal this bike that was attached to a grinder (I think they were grinding wheat) and their earthen outdoor oven with freshly baked bread inside! Rob is really interested in becoming a bit more self-sufficient, especially when this world is so crazy, what would happen if we lost our jobs or the mortgage company went bankrupt? We want to be able to take care of ourselves!
My sister gave me this pretty water bottle. It's from Pottery Barn, she said, but just like the popular SIGG water bottles. Lately, I've been drinking more water because I want to take it everywhere with me!!!
I highly recommend Disney's Wall-e, it's a sweet movie, with a serious message. It's possible that the human race will be come fatter and fatter, with the way we eat (I love processed stuff, like bread and sweets...I know I should eat more whole grains, but do I? Not enough). Consumerism, especially fast food, makes for unhealthy lifestyles, and lots of paper and plastic waste (most of it is unrecycleable). What would happen if our earth was full of trash? Well, in this movie, they lived in a "ship" in outerspace. Wall-e is a robot that compacts the trash, trying to clean up the earth, and finds some life, a plant...where hope is then regained!
