Spring is Arriving!

It has been 14 degrees celsius all week (57 f) and nothing could keep me from the garden.

In the back I raked off 5 bags of leaves.

And found some treasures.  The Rhubarb is poking its head through.
And some not so pleasant surprises.  The rabbits are back.   The books say they won't eat this shrub.  Obviously they don't read.
I am going to start having my first tea in the garden every day and will keep a watch out for all the perennials popping up :)    Love Spring.

Baking Drawers

I started my spring cleaning today!

I started with my baking drawers.   I have been eating keto for the past year, but I still have things here that I don't use anymore ... flour, sugar, pasta, rice, etc. 
Now everything I don't use any more is gone and it will be much easier to grab what I need.

Books, books, and more books

I needed space for all my quilts.   They are currently stored in a basket and a chest drawer in the guest room, but I have so many (and I keep making more) so I wanted to clean out all the books I had on shelves in the guest closet to make storage for them.

I have an awkward niche in the basement family room and decided I would make a bookshelf for all my pocketbooks.
I measured it and went to Home Depot to have my pine cut.
During the building process.

Then added tons of paperbacks to the shelves. 

Books have been moved ... but the quilts haven't found their new home yet.   A project for another day:)
