Earth day…and to celebrate of course I thought I would bake something:)
What the earth would look like from outerspace…and if it was a cookie. I always enjoy baking, and I thought they turned out pretty good. It’s amazing how much an oven can heat a house and turn it into a sauna…especially when the air conditioner is turned off.
Another fun perk of Earth day was getting a free tree! Lowes gave away one million free trees and I just couldn’t resist getting one to plant myself.
Since I don’t really have the means to plant a tree where I live I took it to my parent’s and planted it in a pot until it is a little bigger and better able to take the West Texas wind.
My dad and I planted them and along the way discovered a huge ant colony, a lizard and a really long slinky beautifully colored what I believe to be grass snake. All in all, a good day! I’ll try and post tree pics as it grows into something wonderful:)
“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity, and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is Imagination itself.”
– William Blake, 1799, The Letters
