Going green

I haven’t been able to do any knitting in the last 48 hours, but I have been quite the little eco-friendly person.

Last night, I went on a hike to see the Leonid meteor shower. It was pretty chilly out there, so I brought along my entrelac scarf, fake isle hat, and miracle mitts to keep myself warm. They did quite a good job! And we saw some awesome meteors despite the light pollution.

The hike ended up being pretty hefty—about 7 miles and 1700′ elevation gain—and I didn’t get home until 2:30 in the morning, so I’m exhausted today!

In addition to my hiking adventures, I’ve been trying to eat more “green” lately. I’ve been receiving a produce box from Auntie Em’s Produce Delivery service for about two months now. This is my current stash:

Beets, potatoes, carrots, pomegranates, cauliflower, kale, kiwis, apples, garlic, onions, cherry tomatoes, lettuce, beans, and persimmons, oh my! That’s a lot of produce! To be fair, I split it with my friend Jen, but it’s still such a great service. I’m planning on making a hearty veggie stew tonight for dinner. Well, that is if I can manage to stay awake long enough!
