So, as an administrative note, I just wanted to let you know that there is now an APLS poll up on the APLS blog. If you want to be involved in deciding the APLS name (will we remain affluent, or become aware, or aspiring?) then head on over to the APLS blog and vote!
And in keeping with APLS, today I would like to feature two fellow APLS:
Eco 'Burban Mom is from Michigan, and she has four (count 'em FOUR) boys. On the surface, she seems pretty different from me, and certainly our lives are very different. Hers, for instance, involve Little League games, whereas I haven't been to a Little League game in probably 20-odd years. But, at the same time, I think we CAN relate to each other much more than most people think. Because at base, our core philosophies are the same. We both do what we can, and then, we don't beat ourselves up over the rest.
Cath, on the other hand, is a scientist living in Vancouver. I was really excited when Cath came aboard and started contributing to the APLS carnivals because unlike most of the other APLS,
Cath isn't primarily an eco-blogger. Instead her blog is comprised of a variety of topics including and not limited to science, sustainability issues, religion, her cute cats, Facebook, and her cute cats. She also shares my insane love of tea. I'm really glad to see APLS spread beyond its eco-blogger boundaries, and I really hope to see more bloggers from different background participate in the months to come (hint, hint.)
In other news, I found a bulk-food store nearish and it is really awesome!! I was a little worried when I moved that it would take me a year to find all the resources I needed, since it took me about a year in LA. But I think the difference is, here I've been looking from day one, whereas in LA, I didn't. It's comforting to know that it's really not that hard to find the right resources when you are looking out for them.
