In a month, it'll be March

Wow. That really doesn't seem so far away! Of course it's snowing and 16º right now, but there's hope.

As I mentioned yesterday, I'm at a stall with the raffle top. No big deal. I pulled some scraps yesterday, bright tending toward girl colours, and will begin cutting perhaps today. I'm making a real effort to find some time to sew every day, and I like that things are getting done.

And speaking of getting done, about the middle of this month I decided there would be no spring cleaning this year. Instead, every weekend, another room gets a good top to toes cleaning. First off was the front hall and stairs up. It's not a big space, but it took about an hour and half. Every corner got vacuumed, every inch of wall, ceiling, baseboard got dusted and all the clutter got moved elsewhere. Last weekend was the living room (2 hours) and yesterday the kitchen. Next week it's either the mudroom or (gasp) my desk area. I think the mudroom. Cleaning my desk is a project that, frankly, terrifies me.

So, it's warmed up to 20º. I need to get dressed and walk up to the drugstore, then I have to try and find my TurboTax discs. Maybe I *should* clean my desk this week. We'll see.
