I Got a Bike!

Posted in Go Green!, Jason, Outdoors | No Comments »

Jason has always commented on how he’d like to bike ride with me, but I’ve always resisted.

Yesterday I decided I HAD to get active, seriously so.

He JUMPED on that opening and now we are bike riders.

We went out for 20-30 minutes today, and we’ll be going out again tommorrow.

Jason told me today that it made him really happy that I decided to ride with him. Infact, that he had beenn a little depressed about it.

I hadn’t realized how much he had wished this, so I’m happy I made him happy.

P.S> Isn’t my bike serious looking ?! :)

Too Cool!

Wanna Waterwall?

Check out this cool idea from Michelle Kaufmann’s blog!

By lining west facing windows with glass bottles filled with water you can drastically reduce heat gain within your home and cut your need for energy eating artificial cooling systems. The water inside the bottles acts as thermal mass, absorbing and storing incoming heat and then releasing it after the sun has set when you can actually use the warming effect. You can use almost any type of bottle you have around the house, from water bottles to mason jars to really great looking decorative bottles, as long as they’re glass and as long as you like them!

Jason, I want to do this!!!!! Maybe we could put blooming tea in  a few!
