When you can't think of anything to post about

Yeah, that's me today. I must be at an intellectual low; I've not been able to come up with anything for a blog entry for a couple days now. So what do I type about? Well, how about some random stuff on my mind.

Well, I just got a book in the mail, Gaia's Garden: A Guide To Home-Scale Permaculture. I'm really interested to read this and see how I can apply it to apartment living. I've got an idea for a window garden, watered with the extra water left from washing vegetables, on an automatic timer so I can't kill it by forgetting to water it... but I'll read the book and see.

I've got another book on order, The Transition Handbook, about how to help get your local area from oil dependence to local resiliency (economic and energy resiliency). I've started reading Transition US's Primer, and am thinking about setting up at least a mulling group. I think that we really COULD change how Merrill works, save our local agriculture and economy, and make Merrill a friendlier place to live.

Last but not least, I've been thinking about the Mustard Seed. Its no secret that the current owner wants to sell, and we've got a ton of ideas of what could be done with it (partnership with a local meat processor and local farmers to get more local groceries in to start). So, someone who has a lot more free time, please buy it and I'll gladly give you the ideas.
