While driving around my neighborhood after running a few errands I noticed along one road some potential new growth. Growth in the meaning of a new house or two soon to be built. What made me sad were all the beautiful trees freshly cut down and piled on top of each pushed to the side. So sad. I understand growth and expansion; I mean I hope to one day own my own home but it’s bittersweet to see these tall beautiful trees just mowed down for a house or two that will have little land space. Sigh…
I wasn’t sad for long though as I saw a tweet the next day from Moms Wear Your Tees about a plant-a-tree-in-state-parks program by Odwalla (she also about it here too). Synchronicity? Anyway, it’s free, just pick a state and post through fb or your email address and you’re done. If you’re not in the US, I don’t see why you couldn’t plant a tree as well so I say click on WASHINGTON to plant a tree for us! Yeah, some will say we have plenty of trees here but nah, lots of trees are good. And planting more to replace the ones downed is always a good thing. Scarlet of MWYT also has a button on her blog for Care2. It’s another free click to help save rainforests paid for by their sponsors. So click both if you can.
To continue the theme of giveaways…no doubt many of you heard me “shouting” in blogland about my latest win: Ani’s Raw Food Essentials by Ani Phyo from the Happy Raw Kitchen. Thanks Nelly for yelling congrats to me right away on twitter (it’s how I learned of my win). Seriously, I am really excited about Ani’s new book and consider it a major score. Thanks Evergreen!!!
Now, if only I had this sort of luck while playing lotto....oh yeah, gotta buy a ticket first. Oh dear.
Four days left to enter the Best Organic Wheatgrass powder giveaway. Open to anyone on Earth.
I had something else to chat about but this post is lengthy enough so I'll save it for another day. It's something another blogger posed as a question on their blog so it got me thinking...hmmm...ouch (that's my brain thinking - lol).
Okay, enough. Bye.
