As a confirmed cat lady, I plan to spend Earth Day sitting inside… in my sun room... with a cup of coffee… reading a book… that’s not about anything "green".
Don’t get me wrong, I love being outdoors… when it’s not raining, snowing, sleeting or hailing. Unfortunately, those conditions make up a good portion of the year in friendly Upstate New York. But I still love it here. After all, there’s nothing like a good snow day! Besides, if it's nice out all the time, what would I have to complain about? (Cat ladys always need something to grouse about.) All the crappy weather makes you really appreciate it when it finally becomes pleasant… then it’s spectacular! Not too hot and not too cold for about 5 months. It lasts just long enough for the Cat Lady to emerge from the hovel to rejuvenate before hibernating for the winter. Earth Day signals the onset of the glory days… even if it is a little gloomy out today.
So with it being Earth Day and all, maybe I'll go pick up dog poop in the back yard just to mark the occasion. Fun times! Or maybe I should just leave it as fertilizer for Mother Earth? Now that sounds like a much better plan! Always glad to help a girl out! Happy Earth Day!
