This morning I drove to the store in my hybrid car and hauled my groceries in reusable canvas bags and felt rather virtuous. I will not take it one step further, however, and buy my groceries from an organic localvore co-op. I am rather partial to my prepackaged, overprocessed, easy-to-prepare foods. I choose my battles.
We participated in Earth Hour last night. For one hour, we shut down the network and the furnace and turned off all the lights; the house was utterly silent (except the fridge, which we can't unplug). We played Sorry! by candlelight and made cracks about the olden days when Lincoln had to play Sorry! by the light of his fireplace.
