Earth Day for Every Day

I know it’s hard to change – trust me, there are so many ways I struggle with changing my behaviour! Individual level change is impacted by many factors, including socio-economic status, life stressors, personality and motivation.

Despite our individual differences, we all share one thing in common – every living creature depends on this earth for our survival. We all have to drink water, we all have to eat, we all need oxygen to breathe, and we all must find somewhere safe (and warm) to live.

And so we are ALL responsible for making changes to the way we treat our home. Celebrating Earth Day is a great place to start, but the positive changes we make must translate into permanent change – for the days, weeks, months and years to come.

Join me all this week as I share the little ways our family works to save this glorious planet for our future generations. You won’t hear any preaching from me, but you will hear some great ideas. I’ll also share the ways in which I neglect my eco-duties, and areas where I hope to make some of my own positive change.

Will you join me?

Hoppy Easter!

I love trying out Pinterest-esqe type ideas, but they never seem to turn out the same. Sigh, probably just a sign that I’ll never be a Martha Stewart ;)

I hope you and your family have a wonderful long weekend full of egg-cellent surprises!!

(to try out these “carrots” yourself, check out this link from the Marilyn Denis Show – my carrots are decidedly more pink than orange!)

Easter Weekend Roundup

I’ve been hearing about several great events coming up for both Easter and Earth Day, so I thought I’d share them here! Easter and Earth Day go together quite well, don’t you think? Spring is here, the bunnies are multiplying, and the Earth is….well…a bit muddy.

Place D’Orleans Easter activities – photo spots with the Easter bunny are all booked up, but there will be free face painting and crafts! Thursday April 17th, 10am – 2pm

Proulx Sugar Bush and Berry Farm: Good Friday and Easter Sunday, 11am – 2pm. An egg hunt, face painting and clue hunt!

Earth Day at Terra20: Saturday April 19th, 12 – 4pm. Lots of kid-friendly activities!

The Canada Agriculture Museum is open every single day this weekend!

The Cumberland Heritage Village Museum has an Easter egg hunt with Curious Cottontail!

Fulton’s Pancake House and Sugar Bush – maple syrup…pancakes….say no more!
