Beaver:
The amusing - daffodil! I look out the window and mine are still under a foot or more of snow!
Inspiring - Susan's incredible planned moving!

My plan is simple: get as much small stuff out of the house as possible - down to the mill. Robin will rent a truck and move the furniture and I will not touch a single piece! Hopefully, we will have agreed on what goes where! But there may always be changes. I will come along with essentials - pots, clothes, dishes... I can start on K and pantry while they move furniture. "They" = whoever R gets to help. Mahogany is HEAVY!

The big project - totally mine - will be digging up garden and planting it at mill so I don't loss everything. I am sure it will all suffer imminent death during renovation of Montreal house.

In the meantime, I am enjoying Beaver, where we have had almost a week on sunny days! - and slightly above freezing days. I am triaging things for the new house which I will take to mill when I go back to Quebec on 1or2 April, by way of music in Kingston.

Found a pattern for tunic at thrift shop and fabric in cupboard, also some lovely lavender cotton/silk yarn for ???? But have had low energy all week and only doing little things - but a lot of those so I do feel as tho I have accomplished something. I cleaned out the cradle which serves as a wood box today!! Then took it outside so I could thoroughly clean where it has sat - then put it back. YAY!
