Don, you're right - Dorothy puts us all to shame with her comings and goings!

It is finally cool enough to make cooking appealing, so yesterday I tried a box mix of a gingerbread cake. It's not too sweet and it made the house smell wonderful. I'm using it for breakfast this week.

I've been hammered by contract work the last couple of weeks, but this should be the final week of one of those projects. Toward more eBay work I have unpacked the sets of colored glasses I intend to list on eBay. I had a gorgeous set last spring and a total crackpot bought them and in the end I think she wanted a full refund and to keep the glasses. I called her bluff because she had already posted inane negative feedback before she started the process. These other glasses show a bit more use but are in fine condition. I'm running everything through the dishwasher a few times to be sure there is no limestone accumulation (using vinegar in the machine - still offering thanks to WYSIWYG for that suggestion) and will start listing them next week.

There's a lot to do around here, and enjoy the feeling that working outside is finally comfortable and we had enough rain to loosen the soil for things like thinning and transplanting iris.

There is more tech work to do; ever since adding a new C: SSD to the old computer I have to turn it on, turn it off, then immediately turn it on because apparently it doesn't see the boot drive on the first pass. I must have reversed the drive positions on the mother board. Now that the old computer is up where I can reach it, I'll make that fix.

All of this doesn't contribute a great deal to the declutter, except that if I can get stuff listed it will be off of my dining room table and I can move onto another project.

I hope you're feeling better, Susan, and I hope Pete is continuing his recuperation and treatment evaluation smoothly.
