Earth Day…My Favorite Day

earth_day_graphics_13
Earth Day is tomorrow and I get so excited when for this one day everyone is talking about what I talk about all year.  I am one of those girls that thinks “Earth Day is everyday”.  I truly wish that everyone would be more like-minded, and I know that more and more people are. But, I will take this one day a year to talk up the environment and how easy it really is for us to make it better.

Anyway…  I will absolutely be watching Oprah tomorrow, as she always has a great Earth Day Special.  I can’t wait!!!  And The City of Redmond is holding it’s annual Earth Day Dry Cannon Litter Pick Up on Saturday the 24th from 10:00 to 2:00@ Sam Johnson Park.  Be there if you can!!!  Check out what you can do to chip in in your community.

Happy Earth Day!

I hope you all feel like this is your day!  I sure do.

I know it is Wednesday and it is still the middle of the work week, but be sure to do something great today for our planet.  Check with your city’s website and see what is going on this weekend in honor of Earth Day.  Redmond Oregon has it’s annual litter pick up in the canyon.  Head on down there and take part, you will feel so good about what you have done.  Be sure and include everyone, the kids and all of their friends can only make for a more exciting day. 

 

-MY PART-

Well, the garden is 1/2 in.  I cant wait for the rest of it.  Don’t forget to leave a little room for regular reseeding.  We want to be able to enjoy our garden as long as possible, not just all at once.  I feel so accomplished, I can hardly stand it.  I really do feel like that is my baby out in the corner.  I am trying rows this year for the firs time.  My friend Ann gave it a shot last year and is totally pro row girl now.

The chicks pullets are doing well, I swear I will get the coop picks up soon.  I am working on a huge project that I cant wait to tell all of you about, just not quite yet.  Anyway, big personality’s (those 3 girls).  Trixy is my fave.  Then Omerosa and Crystal.  Yesterday Trixy started squawking very loud.  I have just recently been letting them out of the coop as I don’t have the pen built yet.  I ran over there to find that she had been around the corner from the others and started to panic.  She is now known as the chick that cries wolf.  The next couple of times that happened, I didn’t run.

I put up my clothes line.  I put the clothes out @ 8:00 last night and pulled them in this morning, I love this weather.  I thinkI have convinced my husband that laundry doesn’t have to be done every day, we can shoot for every other day.  Baby Steps, I guess that is what it is all about.

Again, Have a Great Earth Day and actually embrace it and everything that it stands for!!!

OK, HERE IT IS…THIS IS WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT

Hi, my name is Dawn Robison.  I am a wife, mother of two, hair stylist, PTO member, Bunco player and huge into wanting everyone to take part in bettering not only their community, but the earth.  I don’t think that means that everyone needs to do everything “green”.  Doing what you can makes a difference.  If that means that you can just start a worm bin or just use reusable bags at the store then you are on your way.   

I have high hopes for this blog and what it represents.  I want this to be the place that you can ask question, tell us about your wonderful idea, and share some great green news you just heard.    I have been so inspired by other peoples blogs and websites.    I hope that this can become a great place for you to be inspired.  So PLEASE, don’t be shy, let us know what your thinking!!!
