Earth Day Random-osity

The Good: Happy birthday to Marie Javins, my younger daughter. She was not born on Earth Day because it was founded when she was a little girl. I'm pretty sure they didn't pick April 22 in her honor, but perhaps they should have!

A woman made this sketch when Marie was still in elementary school. I kept it all these years.

The Random: Saturday I drove to a scenic spot to take some spring photos and found another photoblogger was already there! This is not the first time I've run into Dawn of Lingering Visions while taking pictures.

The Fun: I stopped it Woodstock to check out their Earth Day Celebration. 

Mosaic Monday.


  1. ...perhap by next year Donny will end Earth Day because it is fake news.

  2. Happy Birthday to your daughter!

  3. And now my son and his bride will add Earth Day as their wedding anniversary!

  4. Linda - people at Woodstock always seem to be having a good time! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

  5. The sketch of your daughter is pretty - congratulations.

  6. I would like to live somewhere where Earth Day was a big deal.... I would have kept that sketch too!

  7. Happy Birthday Wishes to your daughter.

    All the best Jan

  8. This year our town had a big Earth Day celebration which included free compost and free e-waste drop-off for residents. I hope it continues annually.

  9. I hope your daughter had a nice birthday. That's neat that you have kept that sketch all this time.
