Good Sunday morning to you!
With the exception of the unseasonably frigid weather, I've had a really nice weekend. Attended my cousin Bethany's bridal shower yesterday, a lovely time was had by all, and I think she got a lot of great stuff. While at the shower, I learned ChristaD has finally started her own blog which is, of course, Very Excellent indeed.
In my continuing quest to get organized (don't laugh! it could happen!) I purchased a three bin laundry sorter, an organizational tool that I have been debating on for a few months now. I'm proud to report that I actually assembled it myself (but to be honest, a one-eyed monkey could have too) and my dirty laundry is all now righteously sorted and silently waiting it's turn next to the washer.
In that same vein, I finally remembered to pick up some Woolite Dark, a new detergent that is supposedly specially formulated for dark clothes. Finally! Someone catches on that 75% of everybody's wardrobe is black! This new product is supposed to prevent dark clothes from fading, very good news for me as I continually try and pospone washing my favorite black jeans/sweaters/tee-shirts/you-name-it for fear of fading. I will report back on my results.
Last, but not least, I'm again hosting a breakfast next Saturday, April 21st at 9:00 a.m. at my house after which a trek to the Purchase Area Master Gardeners Plant Sale is planned so we can all beef up our collections. Right now, the forecast is calling for a temperature of 73 degrees that day! Woohoo! A heatwave.
I hope you can make it and don't worry about bringing anything but yourself and some cash if you plan to buy plants at the sale. Just e-mail me and let me know you're coming so I can get a head count. I'll be making my bacon and asparagus quiche, muffins, fruit, juice and coffee. I will have de-caf on hand for those of you that prefer it.
Speaking of gardening, look Julie, my Amaryllis is blooming agin!
