earth's day

I love earth day today. It's never really been much of a big deal for me, but today was especially good. Last night I made some delicious whole-wheat banana-blueberry muffins (recipe below,) so the day started off just right, with a healthy breakfast. Then I was offered a little green New Testament by three different people, and said no. Then I had class outside on the grass in the shade under a tree. Then I go a Protect Wild Utah sticker and Cliff Bar (for free,) and tasted some ciabatta bread and ginger cookie from Crumb Brothers, and then I got a $5 dollar off coupon code for TOMS shoes, and a TOMS shoes sticker. What could be better than free stuff and beautiful weather? Not much, not much.
