Earth Day 2009

Hope you spent some of your day enjoying the outdoors. I should have been working in the garden, but instead I spent the day with my daughter, Ashlee. She worked so hard during tax season and I decided she needed a break, so we went shopping.

We started out by going to the Native Roots Market in Norman, our small version of Whole Foods. We had fun wandering the aisles. We bought a few things and redeemed our coupons for a free, earth-friendly, reusable shopping bag. We headed to Jamba Juice and had healthy, smoothie drinks. Mine was Mango Mantra..very good. Then went to Sephora to pick up a Mother's Day gift for Ellena, my other daughter who lives in Puerto Rico. Need to get it in the mail next week. Came home around 3pm and ate a sandwich and Ashlee is off to do her daily exercises. Wish I could be as dedicated to exercise. I would rather be rughooking, quilting, dyeing wool..anything besides exercise.

I did dye some of my DMC floss the other day. Turned out pretty good. Ginger,(Primitives by the Light of the Moon) told me what to do. You use Tan Rit dye and it makes the floss more primitive looking.

Ok, tomorrow I should work in my garden. Needs weeds pulled and leaves raked away from the new growth. That is my plan, unless my husband, Jeff wants to go to the Arts Festival. I could do will always be there for another day.

Enjoy this earth day and do something green for the environment and our grandchildren. Have a great rest of the week and always smile.



  1. Sounds like you and Ashlee had a wonderful day together and accomplished a few things. My weeds are growing faster than my flowers!
    Have a great weekend!

  2. What a fun EARTH DAY you and your beautiful daughter had. Your floss looks great...ya gotta love that Ginger and her wonderful hints that she so graciously shares! And your poppy shoppe has such great items for sale. Way to GO!
