I haven’t updated the blog lately because I had to devote more time to job hunt. But, I am still trying to follow month of mindfulness. I received my bowl from Laura and donated more ‘made in china’ plates and bowls to the goodwill. My auto use and electric use is still high and I have been working on that. I would like to reduce my gasoline and utility usage permanently and not just for a month. If anyone has any tips, please let me know. I have my electric bill and am studying it to identify areas of waste. It is copied below. I used 2427 KWH of electricity last year. That is 202 KWH a month. I am trying to reduce that for the month of mindfulness but would like to do a 2 to 5 % permanent reduction. It appears I was an electric
hog the month of January, but if I remember right it was cold and the furnace ran often.
