October snow storm

Mother Nature stopped by this week and left her mark. It’s been a very strange week indeed. We (along with thousands of others) lost power for a few days due to a snow storm this past Saturday.  In a nutshell, it was astonishing to see communities come together and support one another.  Food and shelter were shared. Friends camped out in our home after our power was restored.  It’s still messy out there, with debris from trees strewn all over yards and streets.  Trick- or- treating has been postponed until this Saturday night to give everyone a chance to regroup. A post on life during the storm is in the works with more details.

In the meantime, here are a few groovy green things to keep you entertained over the weekend.

  1. Don’t forget to enter this giveaway for a LifeFactory glass water bottle and Bambu utensil set from Essential Safe Products. You can enter up to 4 times.  If you decide to buy something from this fabulous site don’t forget to enter the DISCOUNT CODE: ESP3 for 20% off.
  2. Hop on over to Evolving Wellness where Evita Ochel interviews yours truly! Evita is the editor of Evolving Wellness and author of the newly released book Healing & Prevention Through Nutrition: Natural and holistic approach for How to Eat, What to Eat and Why for optimal health and wellness.
  3. Healthy Child Healthy World has a great round-up of posts this week on affordable safer beds and a giveaway for a Lullaby Earth crib mattress valued at $159! Betsy from Eco-Novice was selected as the blog of the week and shares an easy- to- follow guide to buying affordable mattresses and bedding. I also shared a post on how to get a non-toxic night’s sleep and what to look for if you’re in the market for a new mattress.
  4. If you like to get your eco-friendly holiday shopping done nice and early (oh, how I wish I fell into this category) you might want to take a peek at my list of favorite ‘green’ holiday gifts over at Ethical Ocean. There are lots of very cool, unique gifts to choose from. It’s one-stop shopping for everyone. Even your pets are covered!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Oooooo….let me know what you find Stephanie! Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. I love hearing that you have gorgeous weather-we usually get it next! Have a great weekend Marsha.

  5. Hi Lori – good to hear you managed pretty well during the storm. We lost power too – 4 days. Not fun but we managed. It is still such a mess outside – so many trees and branches on the ground. I still see a few trees over power lines here. About 200 homes still without power in town!
    Have a great weekend!

  6. Yowza – what a photo! Mother Nature does often manage to humble us all with her awesome power. Thanks for the shout out.

  7. I didn’t realize so many were still without power Kristina. Glad to hear yours is back on. It was crazy-wasn’t it??!! Hope your weekend is wonderful.

  8. There were so many trees down Betsy-and power lines. Mother Nature wasn’t happy about something!

  9. It was a pleasure to share your story Lori – thank you for being such a wonderful agent of positive change in this world 🙂

  10. Thanks so much Evita for doing what you do. Have a wonderful weekend.

  11. My weekend was internet free! But now it’s Sunday night… so I had to log in and confront the coming week.

  12. Internet free sounds wonderful! It’s always good to unplug. Just like going on vacation, coming back is hard to confront. Good luck!

  13. What a crazy fall season so far! We haven’t gotten any snow, but the temperature has been all over the map, from winter-like cold, windy days to unseasonably warm and sunny days. Every day is a surprise!

  14. It has been strange Andrea. Glad to hear snow hasn’t hit you yet. It’s coming!!

  15. Hope you are feeling better Rochelle. Lots of fluids and rest-as my mother would say! Thanks for stopping by.
