I own a tree. A little Pine tree that is housed in a very nice travel coffee mug. (Oh, how I love travel mugs!) A little Pine tree that was a gift from the local car dealership that fixed the results of our recent icy-road encounter with another car. My sweet husband loves this body shop and says he has never worked with such superior customer service. And better still: they're GREEN! They heat their building with reclaimed motor oil and the energy that comes out of their machines! They use only water-based paints!! And they're soon installing wind turbines and solar panels!!!
Lovelylovelylovely in every way.
So now I have this little thank-you token.
Just between us? I despise Pine trees. There are three in the corner of my yard and I've been threatening to cut them down for eleven years. They just look so unkempt.
I really have thought about planting this new little life - on someone else's property. It's a cute baby, so I can't just throw it away, you know.
Maybe I'll sneak over to a patch of woods near my work tomorrow and if no one reports me for suspicious activity, I'll plant it there.
I DO love nature.
I DO love companies who work green.
I DO love most trees.
And I do really, really want to be able to use that travel mug.
