So you really meant it when you said you were going to post a picture. You guys look cold. You're probably don't much the same thing on this snowy day except maybe not because the power hasn't gone off. VERY clever though--the covered up version.

I started my spring cleaning - washed every dish/glass etc... in my kitchen then washed all the cupboards inside & out. Now I'm going to wash all my good china -by hand - to freshen things up a bit - also crystal glassware - hope I don't break any.

Packed up all my daily use dishes to give away to whoever - I've had them for 20 years but have only used them off and on.

Ho hum

Oh you read my mind or I read yours. Just got done on the kitchen cabinets and now the bathroom closet. I was thinking while doing this that every kitchen, pantry, and closet in the North is looking its best about now, lol.

That's what you said when I told you I saw a penguin & a polar bear in my back yard. WELL! I'll have you know that they were walking down my street yesterday - holding hands ~er ~ a paw & a wing.
