The Three R's in 24 Hours

By that I mean reducing, reusing, and recycling.  I rented a car via Travelocity, since I don't have a car of my own anymore, and spent a large part of today and yesterday doing just those things.  I made a trip with my friend Andrice to Far West Fibers for recycling the non-curbside stuffs.  Before departing for that place, I had left a "free box" of things on my own curb for people walking by to take.  I used the car to haul my treasures to the Twilight Rummage Sale again for the first time since last fall.  I sold a lot of stuff, but managed to bring home a few things too from both the vendors and the free table at the end of the night.  I'm trying to make a little money to get more paint for the living room.  Today I gave away a very old scanner to Virginia and donated a bike to the Community Cycling Center on NE Alberta St.  They need 3000 bikes a year, as well as stuff like helmets and bike related equipment.  The bike was Dylan's and he hadn't used it since we moved to Portland 15 years ago, so I thought this was a perfect home for it.  Oh yeah, and I made a trip to SCRAP.  Andrice had given me a box of things to give away along with my own.  Share the ride folks!
