    Something i noticed about my purchases was that although i feel like i only spend money on what i need i have spent a large amounts of money on previous months where i could have definitely saved majority of that money. It has made me aware that i need to buy things that will last me a while and not purchase something consistently.

    I always really enjoy walking from Pybus market to Hale park (the dog park) Yesterday, it was rainy and cold but I could tell my dog wanted to go out so we did. To my surprise I found someone else at the dog park, So we spent more time there than usual. The other dog and mine played ball for about and 1h 1/2. The walk to the car and back was about 1h&45min. It was honestly so peaceful and I enjoy meeting new people. I feel like walking making me realize how fast we move with our cars but when you wak its slow and you notice small details and get to experience our town with a different view.
    Food Plant an Herb Garden
    Consider the ways you can garden: a plot of land? a patio container? hanging basket? windowsill gardens? What would work best for your living situation and lifestyle?

    I was able to buy soil from a company called Rosy soil and their mission was towards a sustainable lifestyle. In their soil they have compost as well which caught my attention . Once it comes in on Feb 1st I am going to buy a herb from Home Depot and repot it with the new soil.

    My Eco Challenge actions are going great so far, they are all very helpful to motivate me to get outside more often. As well as learning a better respect for nature. My Eco Challenges have helped me learn along the way to gain my self conciseness for the world around me again, and to take the time to enjoy the world we live in. Ive learned to feel more responsible for the outcomes of ecological issues, and how I can help. I have also learned how it is important to educate ourselves and others, about these ecological issues, and how we can help to make a difference. Every little bit helps, and if we all come together to make these changes happen, it is now our responsibility to help preserve and save our worlds future.
