After spending the morning dropping off craft supplies at the Daily Grind, returning library books, and various other chores, I joined Glenda and Lisa of the Flash Mob Volunteering meetup group to clean up the vacant lot beside my second storey basement apartment. We filled over 6 trash bags before we were done. Someone had also discarded a TV set at some point. However, the worst offenders were all the cigarette butts that littered the lot. Folks, take your butts home!! Afterwards, Jan over at the Sun Cafe offered us refreshments as a reward for our hard work.
Looking down at the lot this morning (Sunday), it still looks pristine but someone has put the TV set back in the middle of the lot! Guess I'll move it later.
Right now, I will be finishing up my Christmas articles and then spend the rest of the day cleaning up my cupboards and packing away the last of my belongings. I found out recently that the vacant lot will be built on in the spring. A commercial enterprise is going up along with an underground parking lot. What fun for the new tenants!!
