Outside

Last night we cooked hotdogs and chicken on the grill, so between that and knowing that we’re headed up to the cabin this summer, this article brought back a lot of memories for me.

The article is entitled “Don’t just play, LIVE outside!” by Katherine Martinko over at Treehugger. Next weekend, we’re definitely going to grill and eat outside. I can’t wait.

From ice to clouds

Speaking of maps, here’s an article I found on cloud maps. The article is entitled “New maps shed light on the secret lives of clouds over at the Grist and cross-posted from Climate Central. Gotta love those maps and those clouds.

Ice map

Just yesterday my mom, my daughter and I were talking about maps and how much we like them. This map unfortunately, is one that tells a sad story. The story is about how much ice were losing these days.

The article and the aforementioned map is entitled “Rainbow satellite image shows Antarctica’s ice fleeing into the ocean and can be found over at the Grist.We really need to find a better way because just like with my previous post, Fort McMurray, we’re losing a lot of really good stuff.

Rock formations

Okay, so I’m not the only person who likes geology. The good folks over at the Mother Nature Network dug up nine amazing rocks. You can check them out over in the article entitled”9 famous rocks from around the world” by Matt Hickman over at the Mother Nature Network.

Crows & ravens

I’ve posted articles in the past about crows and ravens, so when I came across this artwork of them by the artist Larry Vienneau, I knew I had to share the joy. Here’s a link to the artist’s facebook page.

Enjoy!

Sand

So tonight I actually planned to watch the PBS special Sand Wars, mostly because I got it on DVD from the library a couple of weeks ago. Towards the end, it actually began to remind me of the book Cradle to Cradle by William McDonough & Michael Braungart and how important that philosophy is. It also reminded me that I need to go back and read the book Sand: The Never-Ending Story by Michael Welland.
