Drat this cold weather - makes it harder to approach the garden work. It looks like mid-week should be more comfortable again. I have a huge bale of hay to get started with the mulch approach, but I have to get rid of initial weeds first.

I have another item ready to list on eBay. One of those sets I don't want to keep is an 1870s- 80s set of china. Semi-vitreous means they can absorb moisture and with a crazed surface they do. I figure collectors trying to complete sets might be interested. I put myself on the registry of one of the places that sells replacement pieces and they'll contact me if they develop a number of folks wanting the Mercer Waldorf pattern. Yesterday I listed a small serving platter and today I have a small tureen ready to go.

Laundry is in, doing a couple of delicate loads first, things that will hang or lay flat to dry. I need to sweep and vacuum. Dogs in the house more this winter has generated a few windrows of dog hair in the halls and living room.
