    The most interesting thing I've learned this week was that there have multiple armadillos spotted in VA! Armadillos! That is both amazing and sad in a way, as it represents climate change for this region, which was likely too cold previously for this species to survive here.

    I always get confused by how this works, so I've been clicking only day 1 on day 1, only day 2 on day 2, etc. So today on day 3 (Food and Water), I realized some things are daily actions and could be clicked each day all week. Therefore, I just want to say for the record, ALL of my meals are meatless every day, not just today on day 3 when I clicked that action item. :-) Just in case there was any confusion.
