We headed out Friday afternoon-Earth Day!-with 12 giant trash bags and gloves to an area near us that we’ve noticed has had a lot of trash collected in it and started collecting. It really is a joy to keep even a little part of the earth clean. (PS-I really did pick up trash too, but someone had to grab some pictures toward the end of our time!:)
We found a number of items…a bike, a tv, vcr, deer ribcage and an un-identified skull, cooler, shirt, and bowling shoe to name a few. We also found enough bottles that if I lived in state where I could redeem them I’d have enough to buy a round of ice creams. And I may or may not have accidentally run over the tv we found.
We ended our day with burgers on the grill, mashed potatoes, carrot raisin salad, hot chocolate and cards.
