My most thrilling thought this morning:
Hey, the recycling bins are all empty!!
Life has turned around a bit. Just knowing this is the week the trash, compost AND recycling all get picked up is enough to make me very, very happy. Other things I'm awaiting excitedly? March. When we can prune the hedge and re-seed the lawn. I kid you not. I already put both on my calendar and I look at it each day to see how much closer it has become. But I'm practicing being happy with what has already become and not what someday will - so I'm celebrating the recycling! The bin has already become empty.
And tonight, we can all refill it. Goodbye rows of Christmas boxes, bags and bottles. Good riddance!
