I'm still cleaning around, polishing up counters, wiping down decorative plates. I don't need to for this company, it's family, who could care less, and won't even notice, but when I know someone is coming, I put a little extra effort into polishing the kitchen chairs, turning the chair cushions, getting stuff off counters and away where it belongs. Partly because my kitchen is so small anyway, and I have very little actual counter space. It's been a leisurely afternoon, me moving at my own pace in no hurry.
Nothing is actually blooming here except the crocus. Other bulbs are up, but not tall enough to even support a bud yet. Only thing I've seen bloom is a dogwood a couple of streets down, last week.
Supper for me will be the last of the strata (ham and asparagus), that I remembered to take out of the freezer when I took out the chicken this morning. Had gotten really nauseous in the supermarket this morning, but once I got home and got a little something into me, felt better, and it seems to have passed.
I've a feeling my GD will ask about the plastic/yarn work she used to do when she was a little girl and came here - asking about it for her dau, Lilly. Did a quick look/see to check if I still have any sheets of plastic canvas, I think I gave it to a friend, but will check one other place, so I'll be prepared if she brings it up. Also want to get down a latch hook rug I had started for the side of her bed when she was about 10! The printed pattern didn't run true as you got into it, and it became very time consuming to figure out the indian design. It is done in sherbet colors, and I'm going to finish it up if it hasn't all disintegrated! Not for her bed any more, but maybe Lilly could use it.
Well, I'll get in that closet before it gets dark and check it out. Nice to have posters on the boards on a Sat. Thanks for your company.
