Photo from my Mother Earth daily news report.
Today is Earth Day. Do you have anything special planned? I didn’t plan anything super special with the kids or anything. We already do a lot to help the earth. I do have to admit we drive suburban's and have no intention of driving anything smaller. We have a small fleet of them, 4 to be exact but we don’t speed and we take good care of them so they don’t add to much to the world mess. I read that the Meteor Shower started on the 16th of April and will continue until the 25th so I thinking tonight Mike and I will get up about 1:00 am and just see how much of the Meteor Shower we can see. I remember back when Mike was about 8 or so we got up in the cold fall season and watched an amazing shower. Mike still remembers that night.
We all need to do our best to help the environment. I really don’t believe in a lot of what people say but we do need to just take care of what we have. Just do our best.
I have been using a lot more “green” products for cleaning and have been making my own for a while too. We use a lot of Terri’s natural products made from herbs and goats milk and other natural ingredients. Of course like lots of people I am not perfect and have a few things I just can’t change or haven’t yet but you never know, I just might find something that works as good and smells great too.
I bought two tomato plants yesterday, it’s really way to early to plant them but I’m going to cheat. I have a toy box in the shape of a dinosaur that I’ve used for a planter for years and I’m going to take a tomato cage, wrap it in shrink wrap (like a little hot house) and keep it safe up here at the house. When it gets cold I’ll give it a warm water bottle and cover it up and just maybe we can have some tomatoes early this year. But I won’t hold my breath, this is Minnesota and we could have a snow storm still. We’ll just see.
Well it’s time to head outside, I’ll talk to you all this weekend. Take care and God Bless!!!!
