While purchasing a few craft supplies today, I was given a free tote bag! I couldn’t figure out why I was getting a free bag, but I’m not one to ask too many questions about free stuff. The cashier must have seen my ridiculously excited expression, because she replied that it’s Earth Day, so they’re giving out free tote bags to every customer (not just me) in an effort to reduce plastic bag usage.
Earth Day! It was one of those things where I knew it was coming, but forgot about it this morning. Well, I’m glad we have a day to honor this great big ball of wonderful we live on. It’s a good reminder to myself to look around more and truly appreciate this place. The fact that I can run outside in my bare feet and feel the soft blades of grass between my toes as I inhale deeply and breathe in the first scents of spring is one of life’s greatest treasures. I know I don’t do enough “green” stuff, but I want to do better. I want all our future generations to be able to experience this incredible place.
Time to stop and smell the "flowers". They're fake, but the closest thing we have to real blooms at this time.
Soaked in sweat, there was nothing better than jumping in the lake and feeling the sun beat down on my face. It made me forget about everything. I was living in the moment and appreciating where I was. It also made walking through that giant spider web so worth itJ
