You're Anal If...

A beautiful rainy day in early fall/late summer. What better day to do something anal like fall clean cupboards. Take all the dishes out. Load dishwasher with all the dishes I haven't used in several months. (Why am I keeping those dishes, anyway?) Wipe down shelves, doors and trim. Sort and clean spice bottles. Put them back in alphabetical order --- nothing anal about me at all!

Waterfront Property

Everyone has waterfront property. What we put on our lawns and what builds up in our curbs eventually ends up in our lakes and rivers. The leaves in the curb leach phosphorus that runs through our sewer systems and on into our waterways. Our city helps by cleaning the streets often. We can help by watching our curbs and doing a bit of clean-up ourselves. It rained cats and dogs today. Here's what has collected at my curb and sewer inlet.
