Did you know that the first Earth Day was 40 years ago? Our Earth Day started out cloudy and raining. The perfect weather for my Seattleite husband who just gets a little tired of all of the sunshine around here. A few hours later Z-cakes and I were chasing the sun in the backyard and jumping on the mini trampoline that my mom bought by using The Secret.
(okay, little off-topic story here: So Z-cakes really likes jumping. As in, she uses it as her main form of transportation. No, it is not very efficient in case you were wondering. Anyway, she likes jumping on the couch. I do not like her jumping on the couch. At least not now that she's gotten bigger and the couch makes a painful creaking sound when she jumps. I told my mom it would be nice if we could get Z-cakes a little trampoline. You know, like the kind everybody had for exercise in the 80s, I said to her.
Oh sure. We'll just go to the Youth Ranch. They'll have one. She says.
I was a little confused by her confidence but figured maybe she knew something I didn't. We drove out to what was actually the Youth Ranch warehouse in Twin Falls, ID, and there amongst old school desks, broken down cubicles, and tire-less bikes, was the trampoline. Only one. Five bucks. Plus tax.
It was then that I realized that my mom must have used The Secret to make this happen. I bet Oprah would concur. It is the only way I can justify such luck.)
Anyway...rain in the morning, sunshine in the afternoon, rain again in the afternoon. Unstable weather is what the forecasters here call it, but in Seattle it's called Sun Breaks. N8tr0n is feeling right at home. I hope you're all having a wonderful Earth Day, rain of shine.
In the meantime, I will be celebrating by polishing off this bag of Sun Chips.
I can't wait to compost this sucker.
Composting tips here.
Full Disclosure: Sun Chips did not sponsor this post. Although, if they stumble upon it they are welcome to pay me in chips. The Secret didn't sponsor it either now that I think about it...though I'm not sure how payment would work for that.
