Not my best ensemble but it’s just right for ARF.

Yesterday I completed my fourth and final shift of laundry duty at ARF. This is the first in a series of tasks that I, as a new volunteer at Animal Rescue Foundation, must learn and do before I’m allowed to work with the cats.

What does one wear to the laundry room at ARF? I chose a white ARF volunteer t-shirt with the recently retired logo. (The new one will be unveiled soon.) There is a dress code that states long pants and since I’m not a fan of jeans it was simple black stretch pants for me. PUMA sneakers made me happy for the comfort factor. Fanny Packs are the new It Bag and mine in black, which I picked up at the recent American Craft Council show was a convenient alternative to a handbag since there’s no place to store our stuff.

It’s on to work at the ARF Thrift Store next.
