Trussville Clean-up Day

Bilal and I spent a couple of hours on Saturday, near a neighborhood in Trussville, just next to the Cahaba River. Trussville Clean-up day coincides as close as possible with Earth Day every year, and this is the second year the two of us have participated. It was the perfect day to be outdoors, with a pair of floppy gloves and a garbage bag or two!

It is sad to see how many old food containers, potato chips bags and beverage cans get thrown around. but the group did a great job picking up whatever they could, and had some fun along the way.

As we walked towards the river the kids found some tires swings, and took a much deserved break to play for a while.

And after the area had been cleared, it was time to take a break for a snack and a cold fizzy drink!

That wasn't the only time spent outdoors on that lovely Saturday. In the afternoon Zakir and I worked hard in the yard, laying sod where needed, and weeding some areas. It was good that we accomplished as much as we did, because Sunday was a bit of a wash-out, with heavy rains. But we are happy with the way the yard looks now, although, a little more color would be nice.
