It's Yin out there. And it's beautiful.

Everybody likes a garden right?

Made a trip down to my community garden plot this morning to do a little clean up after being a slacker for so long. It felt good. I have been debating giving it up this year (due to guilt), knowing there are so many people on the waiting list, and we could have utilized it so much more this past year. My partner and I have officially decided that we will keep it and reprioritize things. It brings us lots of peace and joy and happiness (and food)!

These two pictures are of our plot before and after my little clean up. It still needs a lot more work. I'll add some larger shots from the garden as a whole in another post. Its really a beautiful morning out there. Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

If your days of dressing up like an elf are over for the year and you are ready to lose the tree.....

Recycle it. Don't throw it out!
This weekend (today and tomorrow, Sat Jan 8 & Sun Jan 9 from 10-4 at various locations) the City of Vancouver, along with the Lions Club and volunteers, will be chipping and mulching trees for a donation of cash and non-perishable food items (to be donated to local charities).

So if, like me, you still have your tree and need to get rid of it you can do it in an eco friendly manner, AND do a good deed at the same time!

If you are unable to do that, there are other options as well.
Heres the link for all the locations here
We'll be saying goodbye to ours tomorrow :)
