Susan well on her way to Ohio! May she have an uneventful trip!

Me - did manage to get some sorting and organizing done today on a day that was sunny ---oops! snowing!! oh, gee, sunny again! And it has cooled - from freezing to -10C now. I did bring in as much wood as space allowed, sensing the impending drop in temp after a couple mild days - mild means hovering around zero Celsius. Thankful for the work R did to clear ice and snow from around the wood pile.

Dan came by yesterday and we gave consideration to a structure for next year so I do not have to struggle with the tarp. I would like something moderately interesting, only on the part of the deck that is necessary to hold the winter's wood as it must not block any windows.

Checked out Bob's Greenhouse Poly for prices, as a possibility.

Also something on the other deck, connected to the studio; kind of dependent on how much pottery I will be making in the future. I did manage to glaze in the studio last month but now need to clear that out so I can start throwing pots again. Challenge is to find room for everything - just like in the house.

Little Red had a busy day; she found a bag of blue organic nacho chips that I put outside - slightly off but more a temptation for me. I sat at the window, on computer, also watching her, or him, fetching a chip and running across the road into the woods, then back for another one?? OR just sitting out on the snow nibbling. At least she can no longer come in and sit on sofa!

Almost had inclination to work in studio; "almost"... Almost had inclination to do sewing; almost... Now it is 7:30 pm. Am I really just going to read until bedtime?? Maybe clear some more papers? Maybe...

Contents of 6 of 8 drawers in bureau that is leaving are now well cleared. Need clearness on how to arrange storage for papers that need to be available - as if in file drawers. And all those odds and sods of officey type stuffs, to access easily....
