Just Another Day

I am gradually discovering the world of internet television. It is interesting for sure.

Today I woke up with a scene in my head. A scene. A line. A bit of foreshadowing, some irony. And then I got up out of bed, hit the keyboard and wrote a draft. 776 words. Yay! I see this thing taking shape again. It’s exciting.

There was thunder earlier. I haven’t seen any lightning, but it’s around. I can see it on the map. I wanted to walk . . . reconsidering that.

Yesterday, I did some research on how to live a greener lifestyle. I’m doing a lot already, but I could do more. So, I did some research and have a list of things to implement. Already, I work from home and don’t own a car. Most of the light bulbs in my apartment are energy efficient. They all were in my last place but I haven’t got them all changed up yet since I moved. I only have the lights on if I’m in the room and need them. Usually I only turn them on in the kitchen because it is a windowless room, all the other rooms are lit enough by the streetlights outside my building. I unplug appliances when not in use i.e. tv, dvd player, lamps, computer, toaster, microwave, etc. I don’t have air conditioning and in the winter I keep the thermostat set at 20C, adding extra blankets to the bed, and putting on sweaters instead (which can be DAMN cold!) I cook quite a bit in the oven in winter and when I’m done cooking I’ll keep the oven door open to allow the heat to escape and help heat the apartment. I use enviro-bags for grocery shopping and use the collection of plastic bags I’ve accumulated previously to line garbage cans. I recycle paper in my printer, so both sides get used. I seldom print though. I use travel mugs and my own water bottles. I buy recycled, organic and local whenever I can. I don’t buy paper towels at all.

I guess it all adds up. But I’ve found a lot of other things that are easy to do that I’m going to start doing.
