Welcome to my blog!

I used to blog here mostly using local photos about my neighborhood or Washington DC or other places I visited. But I took a break from the blog for a few months and then found myself posting about crafts and sewing projects I have done or are doing. These involve fabric recycling or re-use and refashioning of clothes, or other frugalities. I've left up the previous blogs and may occasionally revert to those topics again. May your days be blessed with miracles, surprises and creativity too!

Just Gotta Love Those DC Trash Collection Guys!


Well, we actually had two big bulging bags of paper and cardboard trash left over after our July 4th fabulous firework party but I only had enough room on the photo chip for this one bulging TNT bag. I just think it's marvelous how trash is taken away and disposed of on our street. We bag it and bin it and they take it away! One morning I caught those hard-working DC trash collection guys doing their job and had to snap a few photos and thank them for a job well done. If you stop and think about it, those guys are totally essential to our well-being in the city.  I also appreciate the Recycle pick-up which seems to occur on a different day.  We are very good at filling our recycling bin too with bottles, plastic, magazines and paper and suchlike and it too just mysteriously disappears out of the blue bin and hopefully gets recycled. There's also something to be said for how the city residential neighborhoods mostly have alley ways so one doesn't really see the piles of trash very much and it helps keep the streets clean. I think this design really helps make Washington, DC a very livable city. Having regular trash pick up is very civilized too, as anyone who's been overseas where they have not organized this knows what happens if there is no regular organized trash pick-up.
