Earth Day 2013

We try to be mindful of our Earth every day, but especially on Earth Day, it's wonderful to do something a little more to celebrate. The sun is shining today, so that helps. We got the yard cleaned up and ready to go for spring. Food is in the bird feeders and the ground is ready for this year's vegetables and herbs. The kiddo planted her flower seeds, and we enjoyed a colorful, simple snack while we worked. I'm on a mission this year to not just recycle, but to also find new and creative uses for some of the items we discard. I'd love to do more composting, too. Come on warm weather.. I'm ready, let's go!
