The scattered ramblings of a cluttered mind

The earth - beautiful, but in pain. If our so-called leaders (and it hurts to even use that term) would open their eyes and ears to the truth...their idea of being green involves spending that green paper on war and making sure that only the wealthy get more of it.

The signs are everywhere. We are not taking care of what we've been given.

What's easy?
*bring your plastic bags to a local food pantry (and put some food in it)
*who needs to wait for St.Patrick's Day to wear green?
*the three r's - reduce, reuse, recycle - we fiber types are good at this!
*don't purchase any more plastic water bottles - I save the ones I have and use them when pouring dye onto fabric, or re-filling/freezing them to to keep food cold in my son's lunch bags.
*a friend eats lots of yogurt in those quart containers and saves them for me. perfect for mixing dyes.
*you spend way too much money on those pre-packaged veggie trays with multiple compartments, so you might as well use them as bead and button keepers. nice snap on lids.
*if it's too cool to throw out, put it into a collage.
*keep a pile of computer printer paper that is clean on one side. use that side for printing drafts.
*when it's nest making season, place some piles of threads around outside.
*hug a tree - c'mon, you know you can do it!!!

What can you do today?

I participated in Blog Action Day. You posted some great ideas on your blog today.
Last year I put out threads during nesting season, but the birds did not take them. Hum?
