    It took only 2 minutes to clean up a bus stop, and I've convinced the ultimate Frisbee organization to adopt and help me maintain a bus stop!

    I emailed our local grocery chain thanking them for the new bike rack, and attempting to advocate for food packaging options. It was a little scary!

    I had eggplant and beef lasagna for lunch, planning on having a vegetarian dinner, but then my husband made a delicious chicken and veggies stir fry! He is getting so good at cooking, but makes it harder for my goals. Also biked to ultimate Frisbee tonight!

    What sustainability issues are most pressing or prominent where you live?

    My understanding in my state of Missouri is organizations such as USGBC, municipalities such St. Louis and Kansas City, both participating in the city energy project, and smaller municipalities with green advocacy committees, are making strides to reduce utility cost in buildings and CO2 levels, 30% of households are recycling, and there is a true investment in planting landscapes that benefit pollinators and  maintain  the use of native plants to our region.  When reviewing congressman and senators representing the state of Missouri there is little representation regarding sustainability.  I have not reviewed how State of Missouri representatives and the state as a whole deals with sustainability issues.  My understanding is the state does not currently support the use of photovoltaic panels; there are no current utility  incentives that support this.

    Trying to find a fee Halloween costume pieces to borrow so I don't need to order more cheap costumes from China. It's hard, I wish our team hadn't chosen robots

    I laid down to meditate and fell asleep on accident. Missed a nice evening and time to bike. Sometimes naps are helpful, today I woke up feeling like I missed out. I did make it to the Farmer's market and bought eggplant!
