Wordless Wednesday — Family and Climate Change

by Dagmar Bleasdale on February 12, 2013

This is L with two of his little friends, having a blast in all the snow we got thanks to winter storm Nemo.

Don came back from Australia late last night and is full of energy and stories. He was able to visit family on his father’s side, who died 20 years ago, and his mother and sister went as well.

His cousin has a large Bleasdale Clan over there and they are very successful in the construction business. So they have a lot in common and a lot to talk about.

And it didn’t hurt that Australia is stunningly beautiful, that it’s summer there right now, and that Don got to play golf almost every day, even after he fractured his leg (go figure).

Don being back totally threw off my whole day, so I’m pulling together this Wordless Wednesday post really fast, in between getting ready for an event we’ll both go to tonight: “An Evening of Climate Reality” presented by Lewis Blaustein.

Lew was personally trained by Al Gore as a Climate Leader and has been sharing his new presentation with local community groups. “With a global movement more than 2 million strong and a grassroots network of Climate Leaders trained by Chairman Al Gore, we stand up to denial, press for solutions, and spread the truth about climate change to empower our leaders to solve the climate crisis.”

Since we are both advocates for green living and sustainable construction (Don is a BPI-certified Envelope Specialist), we are eager to hear more about how we can make a difference. Should be an interesting evening — they are expecting 140 people — plus a rare opportunity for us to enjoy a night out.

Don, me, and his cast that will be with him for the next 5 week.

Glad he at least got a little sledding in from that crazy snowstorm!

Sounds like you have a lot of neat things to learn. Looking forward to what you share.

I like the snow pic. :)

I would love to make a trip there one day, too bad you couldn’t have gone too!

Looks like so much fun! Glad Don made it back in one piece. Sort of.

Schön sieht es aus! Ich hoffe, dass es Euch gut geht und der Sturm nicht ganz so schlimm war!
Ganz liebe Grüße,
