Earth Day 2017

We celebrated Earth Day yesterday at my office with a potluck lunch.
Heather had the winning dessert with her cupcakes made to look like carrots growing out the ground (complete with Oreo crumbs like dirt sprinkled on the top of them!).  They were delicious!
Jennifer's butterfly cake was just as clever.
A number of us then headed outside to take part in the 20 Minute Makeover, cleaning up our corner of the city.  
We didn't have to look too far to find a creek bed full of trash, just on the other side of a nearby parking lot.
Twenty minutes later, things were much improved.
We picked up all the usual suspects: coffee cups, empty water bottles and beer cans, cardboard, candy wrappers, newspapers.  The weirdest things we found?  A pile of dishes (probably from one of the restaurants nearby).
And a knife. Probably from one of those same restaurants although the caution tape nearby did make me wonder if we had stumbled upon a piece of crime scene evidence that had been overlooked...
Here I am, doing my part, carrying a couple of garbage bags to the dumpster.

And here's our merry gang with the results of our labour.

Leaving our city and planet just a little bit cleaner than it was.  Happy Earth Day!!
