I crossed a couple more items off my list. I painted the window that had been broken with the finishing Cape Cod blue paint. After that dried, I got out the razor blade scraper. It’s been years since I have used it. I had to hunt up some razor blades. I found some in the basement and they were a little rusty from the humidity down there. I put it in the scraper and wondered why it was so difficult to scrape the paint off the glass panes. I took a look at the scraper and realized the blade was in upside down. No wonder it was so hard to do. I had to wash the window and then I was done with that job.

I packed up the extra computers from the office that I wasn’t using. I taped up the boxes and marked them “stuff”. I didn’t want strangers coming in here and seeing all those computers. I still have a lot of computer equipment. I also put my jewelry in a box, taped it up and marked it “stuff”. I piled the boxes in the spare bedroom with other boxes marked “blankets” and “photos”. I took all the clutter off the computer desk and put it in a box. The computer room looks great with all the “stuff” out of here.

I have been watching for my crocuses for several weeks now. Yesterday, I walked through the yard and there were only short green leaves sticking up. Today, the flowers were blooming. It’s amazing.

I went to the Nature Club meeting tonight. One of my friends, Margit, showed her rock collection. She is a “Rock Hound”. Among her collection is several examples of lava, Cape May Diamonds, fossilized wood and shark teeth. The highlight was the phosphorescent rocks that glowed bright red and green under a black light. It was fascinating.

Hi Karol, It really does get us moving to clean things up when we know someone is coming to look at our house. Wishing you good luck in that area. But, don't get discouraged if it doesn't work out. It has to be just the right person and we'll pray for that and we'll pray that the right person comes along very QUICKLY too.

My parents were rock hounds and they had a beautiful assortment of gorgeous rocks and gems. We have some of them they found on their hunts. I have some on a pretty dish that I leave out. They are a good conversation piece.

Good job on finding a crocus. They surely won't be brave enough to pop out here. It's still very chilly. In fact, it snowed again last night and everything was covered this morning. The sun is out now and so most of it is melted - thank goodness. We are so ready for spring this year. It's been a might tough winter. Ruth

The crocues had hidden themselves today. Winter has returned. It looks like March will come roaring in like a lion.
