Around Oak Meadows

Around OakMeadows

Just a few days ago JMM was wondering when the Meadowlarks would arrive. And today the first of them showed up.  I was so excited. They are such beautiful birds. They were busily pecking around in the grass and we just admired them.  So now we have our winter beauties, the goldfinches and the meadowlarks. 

Diane Rehm had a program on the Best Movies of 2015 and I made a list of the ones I want to see:
     Where to Invade Next (This wasn't on her program but I saw the ad and added to the list.)
     45 Years
     The Big Short
     The Revenant
Another good thing is that my DD likes to see movies and it is so nice to spend some time with her.   

Cleaning things out.  I am not a keeper; I am a cleaner-outer.  Taking things to Goodwill or Salvation Army has always been a regular stop on the errand run. I regularly clean out cabinets, closets, and drawers. So how in the world do I still have so much carp??
Case in point: I have a shelf in the garage with gardening chemicals and poisons.  Some of those poisons are probably not legal now because they were purchased decades ago. It is my intention to get rid of every last bottle and box but you can't just poor that stuff down the drain for fear of contaminating the water table. I know Harris County occasionally has a hazardous chemical roundup where people can bring these foul chemicals to be safely disposed of. Surely Fort Bend County has something similar.  Stuff, it sneaks up on you.

Stuff happens! I can't believe how much we can pile up in the tiny spaces where we live. Goodwill and St Vince are regular stops on my errand runs too! And yet ....
