- I decided to give up bananas (which I like very much) because they have too many food miles to get to Minnesota.
- I drove my SUV three hundred miles to a Permaculture meeting. (What, what, did I say something funny?)
- I've been walking to the little groceries in town instead of driving down to Cub in Brainerd, even though Cub has a lot better selection of organic stuff. It occurred to me that Milk, Eggs, and Bread are usually near the top of the grocery list, and I should try to find local sources. I do have a local Egg source which Iditarhoda told me about. I'll check on this but I think it's called John and Theresa's farm on County Road 2. There is a tiny sign "Eggs $1 dozen". I stopped by today. There was a gray cat sitting on the porch railing. It fell in love with me right away. (This often happens to me. I think cats can sense cat-people.) In the one minute it took to buy the eggs, it had both front paws on my chest. It followed me halfway out to the car.
