Following along with "Coach Nicole's" idea of green living, today I would like to add additional information for April 5th. The 30 days of living a greener lifestyle suggests to go to the local library for books, CD's and movies. This weekend my husband and I went out to bike to our local library around 4 miles from our house. It was great fun to pack up the returnable books in a backpack and get cycling. Since we live in a large city with many suburbs around, we chose to not only stop at the library but to go an extra few miles to the local coffee shop. It was a treat because we rarely go to Caribou Coffee anymore. In total we biked for around 2 hours while we were getting my errands done, reducing the usage of gasoline fuel in our car, and most importantly enjoying each other during the bike ride. I highly suggest to anyone to get out those dusty bikes and get going with your loved one (spouse or even a friend!) It is a time for exercise but also for fun! So along with borrowing books, cd's, and movies why not bike to the your local library!
