It must be Spring, or Fall, because I've been thrown into a cleaning out/throwing out/changing around frenzy. You started it all with your one comment, Hats! You'd think I never vacuum, but it just hit me right, I guess. Began cleaning out magazine/book shelves in the l.r. while watching TV last night, some of the books that have hit the donate to library bag are three I had bought at the Used Books closing sale. Tried, but couldn't get into them. Toying with the idea of emptying out, washing, and re-doilying my china closet. That's a BIG project tho, as all my crystal plus my mothers that had been handed down from my father's family, is housed there, delicate and so time consuming to wash and dry with the care they need. I'll see how I feel about that in another hour.
Wrapped and froze all the muffins, and trayed and froze the cookies last night too. Doesn't take long for either to thaw, in fact I already have a muffin sitting on the stove to go with a cup of coffee in a few.
Looks like the start to a nice day. I hope G.T. didn't reschedule their plans to go to the Lake unnecessarily. Since they spend their time on a friend's boat on the Lake, and having been on that boat during a storm before, they decided to wait another couple of weeks to go up. Knowing them the day won't go to waste tho, they'll hit some favorite antique shops with a couple of friends.
The cats have been fed, and Harry has either gone on his way or has gone back under the shrub to watch the birds. Cheerio is still deciding on where to take her morning nap. the ironing board is out because another thing I did last night was get into that pile of clothes I call "ironing" and sort them out on top of it - some to be tried on and most likely put in the Vietnam Vets donation bag, some that are long sleeved to be put upstairs, and some that have a teeny tiny spot that I haven't been able to remove with a couple of washings, that were tossed.
Now, it's time for that cup of coffee and muffin that I'm sure has thawed out enough. Might spread a little cream cheese on it too. Hope you have a good day with your SIL, Kargiver. When you have a chance, fill us in on your visit to pick up the mason jars and get canning tips.
