Saturday Ramblings

You know times are getting tough when the food banks are seriously low on food. Our local food banks have done a smart thing. They have teamed up with the Post Office. We got a paper sack in the mail the other day. All we have to do is fill it with non-perishable food items and place it by the mailbox. They will pick it up with today’s mail service. Now that’s smart. All I had to do to do a good deed was walk to the end of the driveway. And the good news is I have a cleaned out pantry and someone who needs help is going to have a nice full belly.

Speaking of doing a good deed, these days my recycle pile is getting almost as big as my trash pile. There are so many things you can recycle now and less and less is going in the trash. I’ve also seen more of my neighbors put out their green recycle bins too. Mine is usually piled high-now even higher. Maybe I have started a trend on my street. <g> I can pretend.

Let’s see…today I’ve got a list of chores a mile long but its okay. Most of them are doing things in preparation for my road trip. So while doing them I know it’s because I have something to look forward too.  I’ve got to put aside the stuff I’m going to take, get the house in order, do a little grocery shopping, pay bills-it’s all good. My neighbor just got back from one herself so I can’t wait to hear all about it. I think I’ll socialize tonight and grab a bite to eat.

Happy Saturday.

  1. I have to admit it – I recycle now too with the new green bins. It’s one of the kiddos chores. 🙂
