2 IN 1

It is April 22 and Good Friday, where parents with young children get out the food colouring and hard-boil some eggs. When there are Easter baskets full of chocolate delights awaiting bright-eyed little ones. Or, it may be when families attend church to celebrate the religious side of Easter.

However you may celebrate this holiday, I wish you all a very Happy Easter!

And today, April 22, 2011 is also Earth Day. A day to celebrate this beautiful, wonderful planet that we live on. Today our thoughts also turn to ways that we can help our earth to become a healthier place, a greener place. I know that personally I don't do enough on my part, even though we recycle like crazy in our household, indeed in our city. I turn the water off between shampooing and rinsing.... between toothbrush strokes, and flip light switches off to rooms not being used. (I do use little night lights in a few rooms though, as my "night vision" has always been horrid)

I bought myself (and my 3 sisters) a great book on "green cleaning" for Christmas and although I am adamant that I will start using some of the great suggestions in those pages, I admit that I've yet to begin. When weather permits I walk to work and back, but when it's winter I will accept rides or take a cab. Many years ago instead of using a dryer I used to hang my laundry outside. But that ended after bringing a few bees into the house with my dried laundry, sadly I just won't do that anymore.

I tell myself that I need to do more, and I'm hopeful that I will try harder!

This earth of ours is indeed majestically beautiful, but it is also vital to our existence. Happy Earth Day, earth!

Love Jude

I've been catching up a bit on your blog today and I agree that those who used to blog regularly have slowed down. I sure have and guess it is mainly because I no longer do the original reason that I started the blog for. Does that make sense? It was to let my kids and family know where I was with my RV and what I was doing. Since I've sold the RV and we don't travel much, there just isn't a lot to write about. And I don't do Facebook although I did enjoy the movie.

I understand what you mean Dick, and I miss all of your "travel" posts, even when you and Pat just drive somewhere or work on your house.

There are still millions of people blogging, but my group of blogging friends have slowed down a lot with the exception of a couple.

Happy Easter to you and Pat!
