    Hello and Happy Earth Day to all! I am excited for my school day today! My children and I are going to go on a nature hike, plant some flowers, and talk about how we can be more conservative with our earth's precious resources. We are also going to start a compost pile, which is something I have wanted to do for a very long time! What are you planning to do this Earth Day? [​IMG]

    Happy Earth Day to you, too! [​IMG]

    Those sound like wonderful activities!

    I don't really have plans out of the ordinary, as I have relapsed from being sick, and it's raining today, but will be going through my seeds for the garden, making yogurt, and advertising for materials to build my new coop. [​IMG]

    Happy Earth Day to you too!

    My company is giving out one of the CFL (the funny looking lightbulbs) to everyone to encourage energy savings.

    I am going to buy a few reusuable canvas shopping bags at the grocery store today and start using them instead of the plastic ones!!

    We celebrated Earth Day on Saturday by cleaning up a local cove shoreline. Hauled up lots of shellfishing gear washed up during the winter storms.

    Unfortunately, we found some damage to the shoreline and dunes done by off-road vehicles that wasn't there last October. So someone has been distinctly un-Earth Day-minded all winter long! Makes me mad. Wrote a letter to the local Police.

    Happy Earth Day to you, too! [​IMG]

    I'm going to be planting some more seeds today, to do my part!

    We've been using CFL bulbs in all of our lights since last year and love them!

    I'm trying not to drive the car today (helping my pocketbook too!) and hung the laundry on the clothesline. It's a beautiful day, they should dry nicely. It's not much, but it gives me a chance to be outside and enjoy the beautiful earth that God created.

    [​IMG] Happy Earth Day!

    Today we are planting flowers.

    We pick up trash and try to reduce, reuse & recycle everyday. [​IMG]
