Yep, I am recycling weeds. We are making them into paper. This weekend is our city's middle ages festival and we run a stand that demonstrates paper making - not recycling old paper, but recycling weeds. Give me your asparagus peels, pineapple leaves, rhubarb peels and leaves as well as mint, stinging nettles, leeks, and hostas and I will turn them into paper for you. Today I cooked down our rhubarb clippings and asparagus peels that all of my neighbors have been saving for me.
Needless to say, I will need to re-evaluate my exercise plan for the week. No time for a morning at the gym this week. The Today show pointed out the benefits of 5 minute exercise spurts throughout the day. Goal for tomorrow - 30 minutes of exercise spread thoughout the day. I did get my steps in today though. And my freggies weren't too bad:
That makes 7.
