Happy Earth Day


Happy Earth Day!  Today I'm feeling appreciative for the rainy rainy weather we've had lately.  Soon the May flowers will be in full glorious bloom.  I thought I'd share three new earth-friendly goals that I'm setting for myself for the rest of this year in celebration of Earth Day.

1. Not keep the faucet running while I brush my teeth.
2. Keep my collapsible canvas bag with me all the time and use it at every store - not just the supermarket.
3. Do my best to eat local produce when possible - even if it is a little more expensive.
And a 4th to grow on: Ride the bus or my bike to work at least 2 days a week.

And a couple of quotes that I like:
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
-Kahlil Gibran

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.
- Native American Proverb
