As Teacher and I try to bring more “greenness” and sustainablity (Is “sustainability” a word? My spellcheck doesn’t like it, but I’m in charge so it’s staying) into our family life I’ve written more posts about “going green.” That got me thinking that I should add a Green category, but…

Feelin’ the Itch

I don’t know why, but lately I’ve had the itch to change Zany Zebra again. It’s not that I don’t like the colors, I love purple and green. But I’m dreaming of orchid and lime, with strawberry, cantaloupe, and a nice light blue. Maybe it’s because winter has hit Wisconsin…
