I really look up to my friend Paul. He practices what he preaches, trying harder than anyone else I know to be truly sustainable in his everyday life. He rides his bike absolutely everywhere and seems to know a little bit about just about everything, like computing and cameras and word origins.
Most of the time Paul doesn’t buy anything he doesn’t need, and usually I don’t either. This week, though, we set a goal together: We will only buy food and goods from Washington. So it’s Washington Week! Since it’s summertime, it should be pretty easy to get local produce from any of the many farmers markets in town or the Olympia Food Co-op, where you’ll generally find me at least once a day.
So far for my two meals today, I’ve just been eating up my leftovers. Washington Week might get a little interesting later on in the week when I run out of groceries. Check back, and I’ll update about some of the meals I’ve been making.
