Oh, hai

Okay, I admit it...I've been sneaking around behind your backs. For a good reason, though! The lovely Kerri Anne is letting me write on the very cool 5 Minutes for Going Green. So far I've submitted pieces on cool ways to recycle Christmas cards, green party tips, and freecycling.

Besides my articles, 5M4GG runs cool giveaways, offers tips on all kinds of green endeavors, and features freakin' sweet recycled notecards. I definitely recommend checking them out! If things go as planned, I'll be posting there once a week. Email me if you have any cool ideas for green tip articles!

In other news, even though I pretty much dropped the ball on my garden blog halfway through last Summer, I'm starting to look forward to getting the vegetable patch back up and running for a second year. I got the book Worms Eat My Garbage from the library and am excited to an embarrassing degree about trying my hand at setting up a worm bin. Luckily for me, my friend D already has worm bins set up and thriving, and she's willing to give me advice and guidance. Also luckily, MB has said that I can keep the bin in the basement as long as I'm the one taking care of it. If it works, I promise I'll post about it. Winter has just started to really sink its teeth into us this week, so I'm not sure why I'm borderline obsessed with my garden right now. Denial? Defense mechanism? It sure is nice to dream about ripe tomatoes and pretty zucchini while it's -- no lie -- 5 degrees Fahrenheit outside.

There's probably more to say, but it's 11:30 already and I've stayed up way too late this week, so I'm going to call it a night and leave you with this sad but funny (and true) comic from Married to the Sea:
