* Green Christmas Good News for Cows

Olive the Other Reindeer

Recycling doesn't have to end with bottles and cans. Take a leaf from Cindy's book and make your Christmas a little greener.

A couple of weeks ago, Cindy came over to buy all of the wooden picture frames. We talked about Christmas and cows and also gift giving. She commented how years ago they'd exchange names and make gifts but there wasn't time to do that anymore.

Her family has moved to a "green" Christmas - you can't buy anything new so they haunt Value Village, Kijiji and other sources for used items.

I had collected quite a few photo frames so Cindy was in luck and so was the cow.

Cindy was also so moo-valous - she came back and dropped off six bags of bottles and cans the next day. Thanks Cindy for all the help with the cow.

Love the "give a cow" project. I'm giving a sheep to the Heifer Project for my parents' anniversary this month, and understand and support what you're doing. Glad my cow picture could help :)

Anne - thanks for dropping by and that's wonderful and how moo-valous to hear that you're buying a sheep. Heifer International is a great organization.

And your cow picture is helping ... it'll inspire Olive us to be a bit more generous. :-)
