I just received the book Secondhand: Travels in the New Global Garage Sale I'd stashed on my Amazon Wish List last fall. It arrived with an order of good-fitting yoga pants for wearing to the gym. (With the way Amazon delivery people seem to be stressed I try to be more efficient and not place single-item orders.) The book is a look at the business of thrift stores and how castoffs from the US travel around the world. There need to be more people speaking up about how to recycle effectively, and I plan to start here in my village. The crap people throw into the recycle stream via bins down at city hall is a starting place. And the stuff that goes to Goodwill that should instead be put in the eWaste or fibre stream.

The turf weeds are growing tall so some of my fitness activity this week will be mowing. The gardens are taking shape by themselves sprouting new growth and daffodils have buds already. There is a lot of digging to do out there, and in the back of the back yard there are several piles of finished compost to move to the beds out front.
