No Curb-Side Pick Up Here

But it is Garbage Wednesday here as we refer to every Wednesday in this house. For years we had no garbage pick up out in the country where we live. A number of years ago it became possible to have our "yuk" picked up out by the highway. This entails loading the cans up on a trailer and hauling them across the bridge that spans the creek that borders our property. What a luxury even if it entails a little work.
Every Monday, then Tuesday I remind myself to clean out the stewing leftovers in the frig. Many weeks I blithely do something else to avoid this odious task. Perhaps I think I am conducting science experiments or maybe I am culturing antibiotics should we need them. If that be the case, I am well prepared to defend the entire household should a plague arrive.
Well, I think it is time to let go of these thoughts and stop being so slovenly. I am going to make a vow to the Garbage Gods that I will feed them every week on time from now on.
Best Wishes.

Hi, Ellen! I have some time today so am going 'back in time' to read your blog from the beginning. Letting you know, just in case you track visitors and wonder why someone is lurking all of a sudden. It's just me.
