Ben and I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and a warm winter Solstice greetings to all. Tis’ the season to “give” and we thought it would be a wonderful idea that after all the hub-bub subsided Christmas morning that we give our planet a little Christmas present and fill a couple buckets with litter.
It felt good to do something for our community. In my haste to leave work on Wednesday I forgot to drop off the donated food to Northwest Harvest. I had to shamefully sneak back in my office yesterday on Christmas Eve and drop the food off at the food bank…too late for donations to the needy. I know that they can still use the food after Christmas, but the whole point was to make someone’s Christmas dinner a tad bit merrier if possible. So when Ben suggested a litter pick up on Christmas morning I jumped all over the possibility of redeeming myself.
It was a beautiful Christmas morning here in Seattle with the blue skies and sun peering through the trees with just a fine layer of frost covering everything. The frost even covered all the litter we picked up which just goes to show you that “all that glitters is not gold.”
