This page has been blank for a half hour. I’ve done a few constructive things in the meantime, but that certainly didn’t get anything down ‘on paper.’ (Today the term is ‘on screen,’ but it doesn’t sound as good.) I’m going to blame the snowflakes floating about outside in the evening air. I was sitting in my favorite chair, the one in front of the big picture window, when those artistic bits of frozen ice began their dance. My fingers and their corresponding brain impulses kind of froze too. I know that realistically, March is supposed to be a snowy month in Colorado, but the warmth of the past few days suckered me into spring mode. As so it goes.

Progress on Compass Point is encouraging, thoughts for a new project are not. My french lessons are coming along. I’m beginning to get the hang of it. Learning a new language is one of those times you wish you were young again (youngsters learn faster). Fortunately, I won’t be needing to speak it in France for several more months, so I’ll just keep plugging along.

I love press n seal wrap, however, it is not biodegradable, so when my current box is gone, I won’t be buying anymore. The good news is parchment paper and wax paper are biodegradable, also the wax paper bags for sandwiches. There are some washable, reusable, stretchy tops for putting on bowls of leftovers. I might try those once my stock has been depleted. I have been rinsing off the press n seal sheets and reusing when they aren’t all crumpled up. It doesn’t seem like much, but if each one is reused just once, that cuts my negative impact in half. Just a different way of looking at it, but if everyone in the world cut their impact in half, think how that would affect our planet!
