For some, today is a day to do earth-friendly deeds: park the autos and use alternate means, plant trees, pick up trash from roadsides or beaches, or at the very least figure out some craft to reuse all those cds or cottage cheese lids. For us, we thankfully have something else to celebrate today to keep me from becoming to cynical about the whole concept of Earth Day.
Moose's birthday is today. He came along just before Earth Day was even an event. And the irony of all ironies is that he is an environmental engineer to boot. Personally, I think he became an environ eng because hearing people wish him a "happy earth day birthday" keeps him in stitches. Each year, after work, there is always some work party he's scheduled. This year, he was mulching trees while C. monster and I were putting the finishing touches on Irish cream cupcakes with Irish cream filling and chocolate ganache.
To Moose: happy birthday to my sweet baboo. Hopefully by the work you do, the earth will be taken care more than just one day a year.
We are taking Moose to one of his favourite places tomorrow-and no, unfortunately its not Ireland. Be back with pictures soon.
