[tweetmeme source=”elizabethev” only_single=false]It seems fitting that the planet (our corner of it, at least) is getting some much needed rain for Earth Day. Clark and I enjoyed a nice, long walk in the mist this morning before curling up on the sofa for a day of reading, folding laundry, and getting ready for the B’s game (come on, boys!).
Yesterday’s game didn’t go as we had hoped, but we still had a good time cheering on the black and gold with Nick’s brother Mike, and my lovely friend Elizabeth. Elizabeth provided her unmatched knowledge of the team, as well as various good luck tokens, including a piece of glass from last year’s Stanley Cup final. I made sure we had snacks.
I’ve been sticking to my low FODMAP diet as closely as possible, while giving myself a little wiggle room on days like yesterday (a little bit of bread, and a touch of garlic). I’m half-way through the four week process, and looking forward to figuring out what to eliminate for good. Amid the snacks, we made room on the table for a springy centerpiece.
There was plenty of yelling, cheering, and groaning as the Captials topped the Bruins with just over a minute left to play. While killing time before today’s must-win game, Nick and I checked out Confessions of an Eco-Terrorist. It was very interesting, if not more than a little upsetting.
I am fascinated by Paul Watson, The Sea Shephard Conservation Society and their tactics. Are they controversial? Most definitely. They have done well to bring media attention to whaling, seal clubbing, drift net fishing, and other serious issues, though. It seems we still have a long way to go to protect our planet and all its inhabitants.
In the meantime, let it rain. And Go Bruins!
