An Important Announcement and an Invitation

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!

Wow! That's beautiful. It's really turning my crank for Saturday's Plant Sale. I'm saying the earlier the better for the sale. Of course, you know me. I'll be up at 6 a.m. regardless. Looking forward to your breakfast!
