Earth Day 2010

As we do each year on Earth Day, Dave and I headed across the road from our home with garbage bag in hand.
On a stretch of no more than 300 feet of ditch we picked up a bag full of ''human inflicted'' garbage.
I should point out that we celebrate the Earth every day in our family. Dave and I try and do our best to protect our dear Earth and picking up garbage isn't something we do on only one day on 365.

In honor of Earth Day and for a nice treat with tea afterwards, I made these unbaked (no oven used) Swedish chocolate balls that this wonderful blogger mentioned in her post today.

Thank you to everyone that found time today to honor our Earth. Yes, it's ''ours'' so we should take good care of it.

I didn't pick-up trash yesterday , but we did a little green building. We're making the goat shed from recycled lumber and tin , so that's was my " Earth Day " celebration (LOL).
The mocha balls look and sound delish. Could you share the recipe?

~ Happy Earth Day ~

Jayla and I were all set to do our annual earth day garbage and recycling pick up along the path where I go walking -- change of plans. That day was so cold and overcast that we decided we would wait and do it another day when it warms up a bit more. The garbage will still be there I'm sure (that's the sad part).
Those chocolate/coconut balls look sooooooo good. YUM!

Colleen - you guys honor Mother Earth all year long. But I know (like us) you do something a little more special on Earth Day.
