Odds and Ends

Thoughts on marriage

Last Friday marked 6 months of marriage for my husband and I. Time does fly and before we know it, it would have been year, then 5, then 10 and it goes on. I wrote during our engagement that I was having a bit of difficulty leaving my single life behind for official/legal coupledom. It has not been a fairytale 6 months. We have had deaths and illness in our families, I am getting used to a longer commute (yes I am still not enamoured with it after 6 months) and we are still figuring out how this husband/wife thing works. I guess you probably never ever fully understand as you grow and change everyday. I think though that I am the one who has more upheaval, since I physically moved and am still trying to adjust to new surroundings. The plazas are not just up the road, the pharmacy is not just around the corner, I have to leave earlier for work and that sort of thing. What is constant and unwavering; however, is our love and commitment to each other and to making it work.

World Environment Day

World Environment Day is celebrated on June 5. This year the theme is Think. Eat. Save. Think.Eat.Save is an anti-food waste and food loss campaign that encourages you to reduce your foodprint.



This World Environment Day, before and beyond, make a commitment to wasting less food. Use your leftovers, do not throw them out. Use them to make other meals. Freeze excess fruits and vegetables before they go bad. You can use them in drinks, shakes and smoothies. Where perishables are concerned, buy only what you need. Buy smaller portions. Make preserves when there is a glut of fruit, do no let them rot under the tree. Make pickles. Buy local.

For more information visit the UNEP World Environment Day website.
