My Daily Blog for 2019 February / Churoo: Daily Blog
Happy Winter. This month of February 2019, my family got back into grinding grain and baking bread again. To try a different grain than we got before, this time we have spelt. We're making spelt bread. Our first two loaves were delicious.
In February, for landscape architecture, I revised and posted the 40 ways to sustain and enrich communities, people, and nature, that I originally made in 2012. I posted it in the Holistic Sustainability page. I use the word "holistic" not to narrowly mean herbal medicines alone, but to broadly mean whole culture, including economy, education, science, art, the way we live, learn, and work, etc. My blog website has several pages on holistic pursuits. Also I wrote about Changes needed in Education and the Economy: 7 goals and success indicators in culture, education, ecology, and economy, in order to help communities, people, and nature.
Plus, my February Daily Blog has several photos of winter snow, in Michigan, and outdoor snow activities: sledding, cross country skiing, etc. In February, Lake Michigan's surface froze into ice. Also, Michigan had some days that were subzero all day long. We got down to -18 degrees F. Wildflowers can still be seen in winter. The stalks are dead, but the flower species are still identifiable by its dead stalks and seed heads. They add visual and textural interest to the winter landscape.
Also, I posted a few snowy photos of Three Rivers, Michigan. This month, I visited Three Rivers, Michigan, for the first time ever. My aunt-in-law has some art in a Three Rivers art show. In Michigan, several people confuse Three Oaks with Three Rivers, because both town names have the word Three. Yet, they are very different. Three Oaks has 1 river near it: the Galien River. But, Three Rivers has 3 rivers (St. Joseph River, Portage River, and Rocky River) run right through the heart of town.
