I might be heading to the foothills to do some goldmining amidst the pine trees and streams.  Of course, the Earth Day people would disapprove.

Applepiemommy...you somehow duplicated this topic.  You can go in and delete the other one, but you'd have to do it before anyone replies to it.

Bummer. What happened was when I posted it the first time it was too soon after one of my other brilliantly witty posts, and it called me a spammer. So I had to re-do it. But then, it seems, the computer posted both the new one and the spam one. Note to self: the spam messages get posted anyway.
 
Or, maybe it's global warming.

Earth Day?
We've retired the autos, for the time being - I even de-plated and garaged one.
10-speeds and tennis shoes, everywhere.
Just made the trip to the banco and grocery store - via shoe.
Plenty of fresh, unprocessed food - yea, we carried it home.
We were goin' to our backyard (The Falls) - and have us a little picnic...but I think that now will wait for TOMORROW, at dawn.
We're beat & I'm cranky.

I bought a T-shirt made entirely of an organic cotton/recycled materials blend, and then I went to Lowe's and purchased a blackberry plant so I can grow my own tasty fruits. =D
 
And I also emphatically tried to convince my mom to either get an Escape or forgo SUVs completely once the lease on her Explorer is up.

No, I realized after I'd replied that I took the term "enlist" literally, when you probably meant, "get my kid to help me plant flowers."

 

Guess that made my answer sound pretty snarky, huh?  Confused

No worries!  The enlisted kid ended up being a seven year old girl who would be most pleased if the snapdragons bloom actual dragons.  I'll report back if they do
 
Side comment: Snarky is a wicked fun word.

I read that and thought "Hmmmm...must be from Massachusetts".  Then I looked at your "location".

We have trays of veggies started for green beans, swiss chard, two types of tomatoes, 2 types of peppers, okra, and as for flowers, sweet williams, baby's breath, and rose moss (baby's breath and rose moss will be planted around the mail box.)
 
We have flowering trees coming in from Arbor day to replace some trees that were killed by grape vines.
 
My nursery class is also having a sale at the beginning of May.  I'll be helping with that, and will buy some brussels sprouts plants from the school.
 
As far as gas goes, we have to be very conservative due to its cost.  We plan outings carefully, so that helps.

I'm going to mow our lawn with my battery powered lawn mower. (Great invention my wife bought me last year, it's found at neutonpower.com...check it out! It's quiet, cuts well, completely adjustable, even has attachments to wack the weeds and do trim work....and you don't have to put any oil or petrol in it. BLOODY BRILLIANT!)

After I'm finished with the outside work, I plan on making some crab cakes, baked mac and cheese, and we'll have some wine, cheese and apples for desert.

I have the day off, so there will be no driving the car anywhere.

I'll also take a nice walk with my puppy. He loves those strolls, especially when he see's his other canine friends Coco and Lexie!

A Car Dealer is giving away Scratch-Off Lottery Tickets, so I'm going to drive my 70 MPG Scooter over there and try my luck. If I get a Winner I'll "Relieve" a Wallys of a Bargain DVD!LOL

We planted our lettuce this weekend. Still too cold for anything else to get planted.

Hey, you! I didn't say *I* was gonna do anything; just that anybody who wishes to can. LOLSeriously, though, I have become much more conscious of my carbon footprint. I'm bringing my own reusable Costco bags (they are the BEST), and I'm walking and busing more.  (Of course, the price of gas helps with that.  I just got a "bargain" when I gassed up the car today. I only paid $3.83!!!

In celebration of Earth day I'll crumple paper just to throw it out, wash my car, me and my neighbor are gonna burn styrofoam in his yard and even though he lives two doors down I'll be sure to drive to his house.

It's nice and sunny here, but uncomfortably hot.

I always encourage the bagger to "try and get as much stuff into as few bags as possible---and no need to double-bag.  The bag only has to last the 20 feet or so from my trunk to my kitchen counter, and I have too many bags in my life as it is.

Thor, I filled my 1973 Toyota for less than $3.00 before the 1973 energy crisis.

Ahhhh, yes!  I remember some friends and I pooling together 46 cents for a gallon+ of gas at a Hess station in 1972 in order to be able to drive around aimlessly (well, the "destination" back then was always the "ozone") in a 1966 Buick Special for a few more miles.

When I first got my drivers license driving by myself was a real treat. Because my dad drove over a hundred miles round trip to work & back everyday, filling up his '73 VW Bug was a nightly after dinner ritual that he was more than happy to allow me to perform on his behalf.
 
There was a Hess station about 4 miles or so from our house that had the cheapest gas in town. I could get a half a tank for right around the $2 he'd give me, (often times with a little change left over) at the whopping price of 27.9 ¢ per gallon.
