Well here goes nothin!
My friend Alicia is on her third year of eating 100% local for the month of September. This year a bunch of people have pledged to join her in eating 50% local.
I have no idea if I’ll actually make it to 50%. I have my doubts. (I’m a creature of habit. And September is going to be busy, with a quick trip to BC for a friend’s wedding, and school starting up again.) But I’m going to give it a shot. And I think that making some changes is better than nothing, so that’s what I’m aiming for. More thoughts/pictures/adventures to follow, no doubt!
If you want to join the “50% Local September Club”, you can do so literally on Facebook here, or just figuratively, by eating 50% local Cape Breton foods for the month of September!
I’m a bit sad that I have to miss the “Stronger than Steel” event this weekend at the Open Hearth Park in Sydney due to work. It sounds like it’s going to be an amazing time! Free admission, amazing entertainers, the “Right Some Good” food festival — so much goodness!
Labour Day weekend – the unofficial end of summer – will find me working my last few shifts for the summer at the marina. It’s bittersweet, of course. On one hand I’m so ready for school to start up again, to be back in North Sydney in one house, to finally tackle my tip of an office, and to cook each night with my honey. But on the other hand, it was a good summer. (I’ve got a post in the works with some of my favorite memories.) It pushed me in some ways, for sure, and looking back, I’m glad it did.
Anyway, that’s all for now! Have a great weekend! See you on the other side.
