    As this challenge comes to a close, I wanted to encourage everyone to continue to keep up on the new habits you have developed this month.  As an example, last year one of my challenges was to give up floss picks.  I loved my floss picks and hated the thought of going back to regular messy floss. So I found this compromise. It is essentially a reusable floss pick with a spool of floss inside. It took some getting used to but I have stuck with it since last July and that one spool has lasted this whole year!  It is called GripIt and I ordered it online.  I just refilled it with a regular spool recently.  Anyway, keep plugging on in your new goals!

    I just checked our ranking. SCZ as an organization (all 4 teams together) is ranked 21 out of 379!  Not bad at all!  Team Gorilla is ranked 45 out of 760 teams!  Keep up the good work everyone!

    Went shopping at the farmers market today. Saw a lot of reusable bags in action!

    Bought these reusable bags a while ago and I really like them!  They stand up for easy filling and better drying, the inside corners are rounded for easy cleaning and  they are dishwasher safe!  They come in different sizes. Got them at Target.

    Harvested peppers and tomatoes from my garden to make supper tonight!  Also cut up a whole cantaloupe instead buying the precut packaged kind like I sometimes do. I forgot how much better the fresh cut cantaloupe tastes!
