Good Monday morning to you all out there.  The temperature rose to the mid 40s overnight but should fall back through the day.  We also had thundershowers during the night.  Thankfully, nothing like rolled through the southeast.  The weather people predict light show in the afternoon but no real accumulation.  Needless to say, this is very unusual for January and 2012 appears to be continuing the pattern of violent and unusual weather set in 2011.

Oh, yeah, it was a busy weekend, Nicola.  Now we have the sorting, rearranging, and labeling everything in that storage/sewing room.  We are going through another spate of deciding what we really don't need any more and finding a new home for it if we don't.  It feels a bit like peeling an onion--one layer after another.  We started putting the sewing/storage room together and found room for some of the seasonal or occasionally used kitchen appliances.  I am sure you all know where that is going.  After finishing with our current task we will have to rearrange the kitchen.  Some might consider this just spring cleaning.  For us 'spring' cleaning happens when we have a significant rearrangement of the furnishings.  Oh well, the garbage men will hate us for the next couple of weeks and the Goodwill people will love us.  We have sizable piles fore each.

But a bit of good news--the last of the seed orders I placed last week came in today.  And I got three free packs of seeds with it--bachelor buttons, love-in-a-mist, a purple radish.  I got some love-in-a-mist last year that didn't do well.  I have to review what I did and make changes.  Hopefully, it will do nicely this year.

Bachelor Buttons are pretty flowers and will look lovely on your patio.

The weather is weird. I hadn't moved Miss Ruby and yesterday berated myself for not brushing the snow off her and this a.m. it melted.

Sounds like your sewing room and my den are both undergoing a much-needed overhaul. I bought new curtains for the sewing room an they look great. For now, I'm just working on cataloging my books. Once that's done, I'll be checking out my old computers and cleaning out the desk. Sigh. I wish you well!
