NH is starting to feel the effects of Covid-19 and that’s been weighing on my mind. However I’m going to focus on the joys of our beautiful state and try to spend time outside in our serene woods (make sure to wear bright colors due to hunting season), cook food from our local farms and stay (virtually) connected with the loving community my family has created here. Hopefully light at the end of the tunnel soon. In the meantime, we still need to heal the the Earth and focus on preventing more future disasters. So let’s take a look at what’s been happening around the web…

Lastly, I don’t mention it on here but I am a devout Rachel Maddow Fan. My husband I watch her nightly. I’m not about to get into mask/shutdown debates, but please be careful. Her partner is extremely sick and she made a strong point that you don’t get to choose who in your life gets Covid.
And here’s a recap of other topics Hannah and I discussed this week on GreenLifeNH!

- Our New Clothesline!
