Nice surprise for a great kid!

I'm decluttering my C: drive in the computer - the Windows Media Center has been recording programs to that drive and it is filling up. I will watch or transfer to DVD a number of them and clear it out, but I wanted them on a different drive anyway. The M: drive has barely been used so far. It has over 3 hours to go, so I'll leave the computer on overnight.

The front room futon has now been dog-proofed (several layers of blankets over the mattress, topped with a polyester bed sheet that is too rough for anyone to want to use on their beds. Came from my Dad's house years ago and this is its highest calling.) If we have really cold or yucky weather they can come in and sleep there. I also moved the hay from the garage floor into their dog stall and am ready to start putting my truck in the garage again. Since the garden froze last night (all but one eggplant I covered) that activity will slow, once I tote all of the dead plants back to the compost pile.

I'll try to remember to haul the recycling to the bins tomorrow, but I'll have to do it before work because I need to dress up a bit and that means climbing into the pickup bed is out. :)

I've decided today is the last day for the ratty old gardening pants I've been wearing for a couple of summers now. Into the trash they go. I need to thin out stuff in my closet this weekend, and that will go to Goodwill.
