It’s been awhile since I last posted. I’m elbow deep in a bunch of household activities and orders. I’m still plugging away at the 90 jotter order. I’m at book #70 and I’m going to stitch up some books this evening.

It’s Earth month, which fits with my usual recycled books. I challenge everyone out there to come up with a recycled book idea and to make it. My 2nd challenge is to use something recycled in your art! Collage is recycling!

In addition to all this fun stuff I’ve been working on a gray water recycling and filtration system for my washing machine. I’ve got the plans laid out now I just need to pick up the pieces. We’ll be using this for watering my pear tree as well as the lawn. My plan is to use both a particle filter as well as a carbon based filter to get rid of more of the "stuff" in the water. There isn’t much, but I don’t want to put nasty water out. 

I have a rare week day off this week, so I may get some of the parts for this today, expect an instructable to come from this.

Earth month and Earth day are big things where I work and I get pumped up for it, additionally my town has a major EcoFestival this year, showing screenings of a vast assortment of Ecologically minded movies. Additionally to that there is a walking tour of the local solar energy farm near the high school.  I"m not sure how many of these Earth Month Events I’m going to get to see or be involved in but I’m excited about them anyway.

As one of my coworkers put it, it’s a fantastic way to meet like minded people. I suspect that there will be a good showing of my coworkers and people from the regional offices.
