This is a global event created to symbolize that each one of us, working together, can make a positive impact on climate change. We call all do this by doing one simple task today and that is to turn your lights off for only one little hour.
Earth Hour was first celebrated in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million people and thousands of businesses turned out their lights, allowing the message about climate change to shine brightly. In March 2008 , Earth Hour went global.
Earth Hour 2009 will be the largest climate event in history. Already 250 cities in 74 countries have agreed to take part including Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami and Nashville Around the world cities like Moscow, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Shanghai and Mexico City will turn out their lights in support.
Earth Hour isn’t just for big cities—anyone can participate. To see what Earth Hour is all about, check out this video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CRs-7lRlPo
Be apart of history!

I can't believe spring has sprung! Today is the first day of spring. I don't know how I can go about life and not notice the first buds on the trees. I saw a whole row of trees today with white blossoms. I love this time of year, my tulips are sprouting, my strawberry patch is green and my lilacs have buds that are ready to form. The grass which is yellow will eventually turn the dark green. We had our first treatment on the lawn this week, which tells me it is time to get out and pull the dead to help the new growth have a better chance. I want to hit the nursery and get some flowers for my pots on the front porch. I know, I know, it is too early just yet. But the planting bug has hit.
It has been a crazy month. I have leaned to make my own yogurt, so cool and very healthy. I will post my process later with pictures. I have got the bug in me this week to spring clean. I have taken on the task of cleaning carpets. Each night when I got home from work I took on a room. I still have some more to do, but had to take a break for a few nights. It was nice to sit on the couch and cuddle up with my honey and "the girls" to watch a movie.
Life is good and I am excited for the green to come back and for the roses that I will plant for my first ever rose garden.
