>It’s not too late…
- to vote for my sustainable cooking tip by clicking “I Like This.” I have several tips on the Brighter Planet site, but this one is getting the most attention.
- to consider slow food options for gifts. These aren’t limited to Christmas; consider them for birthdays or Mother’s Day or other special gift-giving times, too. I bought myself reusable produce bags last summer, but fair trade coffee never goes out of season.
- to wrap a gift in something other than commercial wrapping paper. It’s easy, it’s green, it’s frugal. This doesn’t have to be limited to Christmas, either; birthdays are ideal times to get creative with wrapping.
- to read a good book. Join paperbackswap for swapping, shop your local bookstore for new books, and make time to relax.
It’s not too late to bake cookies. Sometimes I bake on Christmas Eve Day and decorate on Christmas Day itself. Amigo objects – he thinks I’m slacking if I wait that long – but sometimes life takes over.
It’s not too late to sleep in and make a few deposits in the sleep bank. Snuggle in, take a nap, and feel good.
It’s not too late to sing some good Christmas songs and carols. If you don’t sing, listen to a good CD or two or three.
Above all, enjoy your holiday.
