A Little Update: Why We're Living the Gypsy Life

Hello friends and guardians,

It was a heck of a nice summer, and now we're into a mild wet autumn with days steadily swooping towards cooler temperatures. The leaves haven't quite started changing yet, but it's still early here in Green Country, and I expect we'll see a little blush on the leaves soon enough.

With fall comes a flurry of new activity in the world. Animals everywhere collect food for winter, birds migrate to warmer climes, and humans batten down their own hatches in various ways, from beefing up their home's insulation to tending fall gardens for that last big harvest of the year.

Here at The Green Country Guardian, it might not surprise you that we're more like the birds, engaged (for now) in a migratory pattern. You see, as with any new endeavor, deadlines have been set, reality then plays an ugly hand, and deadlines fly past, utterly missed before we realize where the time has gone. The best laid plans of mice and men and all of that. So, here's the scoop: I know we promised our first issue in September. A quick glance at your calendar will show you that it is now October, and nary a TGCG issue has been seen. This is not for lack of trying, but rather due to some hiccups in the start-up process.

First, we had to, unfortunately, part ways with our web designer. No ill will, no bad blood, things just weren't going in the right direction and we've had to change our game plan. So, we're sort of back to the drawing board on creating our official online home. 

Gypsy living at its finest.

HOWEVER, fear not. For I, your faithful editor, have decided to not keep you waiting any longer. I have writers writing, itching to get green living articles and Green Country information out into the world. We have things to share, stuff to talk about. And lo! we have this little blog-place on which things such as these can conceivably be posted for all eyes to see! Therefore, during this transitional phase, while we get all our ducks in a row and work on herding the rest of the cats, TGCG will live like gypsies and begin sharing some of our content here, from our temporary home. This way you, our dear readers, can get on with the business of seeing what we're all about, and using these articles to aid and inspire your sustainable lifestyle.

Tomorrow is going to be a cool, rainy day. You might find yourself wanting to stay indoors and putter around. You might also have children and find they need something to do on a wet October morning. Watch for Holly Embry's eco-craft post as our first little "leak" here on the blog. She'll have something positively delightful for you to make with your own two hands, out of reclaimed materials (no shopping required!), that will light up the eyes of your little ones and give your morning a touch of childlike wonder. Perfect for the young and young at heart.
