Happy Earth Day, All!!

Well although I haven't posted in awhile, I thought it only fitting that I do at least a quick post in honour of Earth Day.  The funny thing is, I wracked my brain trying to think of something special we could do to celebrate Earth Day, but couldn't think of anything!  Every day is Earth Day around here.  Every day we make a conscious effort to do what we can for our planet, so really, today was no different for us.  The kids did draw pictures of the earth, put them in envelopes and placed them in the mailbox (to be mailed to the Earth...  how cute!) to say thank-you for all that the Earth gives us.  I had a lovely visit with an old friend this afternoon whom I haven't seen since university.  I bumped into her at the Farmer's Market a couple of weeks ago, and found out she was pregnant and was interested in cloth diapering.  She was looking for some tips, so I invited her over to show her what it was all about.  And then of course we chatted about just about everything OTHER than diapers.  Then after she left it was such a nice day today, that instead of cleaning up we all went out for a walk.  Being outdoors is really the best way to celebrate Earth Day, isn't it?  Just enjoying what we are so lucky to have.  Hope you all had a nice Earth Day today!  Did you do anything special to celebrate?
