I have a pile of cardboard boxes sitting by my carport door that need to go in recycling, and I threw away tons of plastic Walmart and Brookshires sacks that had ended up out there.
What did not bring me joy was finding the complete skeleton of a 4-5 inch lizard sitting in the windowsill that a desk had been in front of. There were some things stored under the desk too. I had moved everything I could to vacuum and found it. I didn't thank it for its life, but I did say, "Poor lizard," before picking it up with a plastic bag and throwing it away.
Hopefully, next weekend I will get started on the new projects I want to do. I have a bunch more books coming that I'll have to put somewhere though. I have no idea where, so I predict another mess.
