Earth Day

For Earth Day we were planning on collecting bits and pieces of stuff to make some nesting balls for the birdies but the rainy weather and a cold coming on for myself and Xman nixed that idea. We do still plan on making the balls but perhaps instead filling them with suet!

Instead the boys decided to make a spider’s web in the living room. Apparently, a spider starts with a ‘y’ shape and moves on from there. It took some shoo-ing of Gypsy, our curious and string-eating cat before she realized her teeth were not welcome in this scenario! The boys were well aware that the web would have to be dismantled before bed or we would end up with a very belly-achey kitty the next day!

Gee, imagine making another web the next day and the next? I don’t know how spiders do it!

Hope you had a good Earth Day! What did you do to celebrate?

  1. Looks like fun! Little man had his nature program that day, so he celebrated in the woods with his friends. This week has been cold and rainy, but once the sun returns we will do a little country road clean up picking up all the trash left behind by thoughtful drivers 🙂

    Happy weekend!

    • Ah yes, those drivers…was thinking the same thing on my way home from errands today. Happy weekend to you too! 🙂
