I admit, I didn’t jump on the whole “It’s Easy Being Green” bandwagon. I didn’t turn my power off for an hour. I didn’t recycle a million soda cans.
But I have enjoyed my earth today. I’ve fed birds and lizards. I’ve lightly watered drought-tolerant plants and trees. We tried to let our cats outside to enjoy some fresh air, but Lizzie didn’t like the wetness as I’d just watered the plants; Berry didn’t mind being held as long as we didn’t stray too far from the patio; Fluffy upchucked as soon as she passed the threshold, Sparkles was a bit explorative; and Little wanted to see the sights.
And then, since we had do a tiny bit of tree trimming, we snipped one thin branch about four feet long and brought it inside. The cats have taken turns playing with their newfound jungle.
All in all, I’m pretty happy in my corner of the world, and while I’m not an eco-activist, I am doing my part to take care of my part, my corner.
So. What did you do for Earth Day?
And Frankly, My Dear… that’s all she wrote!
