Column sharing: Now that’s green
With the new year comes new ideas and I thought of this one in the middle of the night. That’s when most of my good ideas come — at night when my brain is finally free to roam. For awhile now I have been having a hard time getting my columns written-not for lack of ideas, but time. I thought maybe the moment had arrived for me to retire my virtual pen and mark it all up as a good run. But I really enjoy writing and sharing info in The Green Notebook. So, what to do? That’s when I thought about column sharing. Why not invite someone to help me out every other week and, thereby, keep the column going and keep it interesting?
So, starting next week, a new friend, Jayna McDaniel-Browning, who I met through the Delaware MOMS Club, will be joining in every other week for sharing green ideas in The Green Notebook. Here is Jayna’s bio so you can become familiar-her blood runs greener than mine so I think you’ll enjoy hearing from her!
Jayna McDaniel-Browning is a former Gannett newspaper executive turned stay-at-home-mom. While her two wonderfully boisterous sons, ages 8 and 5, demand most of her time and energy, she finds time to lead the “Go Green!” group of Delaware’s MOMS Club, volunteers at Woodward Elementary and the NUU church, and plans to open a small Etsy shop this year as an outlet for her crochet and art obsessions. Jayna considers herself very lucky to have married the best man she’s ever known; they’ll celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary this year. The 15 years she spent living in Ithaca, NY, fueled her love of green living, gardening, and Birkenstocks. Jayna loves cooking (and sharing plant-based recipes with friends and family), good wine, music, and preferably all three mixed with a few good friends. She is an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, and dystopian fiction, a fan of both Star Trek and Star Wars, and proudly claims the title of Geek.
So next week, please welcome Jayna and her green living insights as we continue to provide you with, what we hope is useful, timely and interesting information.
Happy New Year!
