Gray Leggings - What a find!

Yesterday I was at Target shopping for leggings. Couldn't find exactly what I as looking for by did find purple sweater tights to go with my top.
Then, when I went over to the Clearance Rack, I saw some black capri leggings in my size but not long leggings. They were extra small. But a lady had just grabbed the only pair of gray leggings. I was bummed.

Then, today after working in the Sculpture Garden at Orange Park, I decided to go over to the Goodwill and take advantage of Senior Discount Sunday. I managed to find a fine pair of gray leggings to go with my purple top that has variegated gray pin stripes to match them. Oh happy day!
Although they were a size extra large, I was able to insert some wide-band elastic into the waste-band and make them fit perfect!

Evening Walk and Civil Duty

I was just out for an evening walk and stopped by Avalon Park near me. There were several people hanging out there but not much activity. I began weeding a garden there that I helped plant during a recent community planting. It was overgrown with weeds and the guy whose duty it is to maintain this garden has been neglecting it. So I stepped in and pulled out a bunch of weeds. Still a lot of work to be done but it's easier when there has been some rain to moisten the soil and loosen up the earth. Got much done but it was too dark to take pictures this time.

Improving Public Places is the name of the group that I've been involved with as a volunteer with their scheduled community plantings.
