Monday Stuff On the Way to Other Stuff: Spring?

Our first daffodils are up, and struggling to bloom. I don't blame them, poor things. First, it's warm -- then it's not. Other than a bare sprinkling of raindrops yesterday, we haven't had any moisture for weeks. The clothes from today's washing are almost ready to put on the line. Maybe that will encourage it to rain.

Martha Ballard's diary. This colonial-era midwife kept a diary of her activities for nearly three decades. Excerpts have been published, and a video documentary based on her life. These are nice, of course. You can read the full diary yourself, though -- it's online and free.


Have a great week.

So many interesting links in this post today. I will have to save this to poke around later in the week. But I did want to say I love organization, so whatever you can do to make your trailer living more streamlined is certainly a good idea.

P.S. When we lived in Florida, I paid the extra $$ to have a manatee on my car license plate. They look so sweet!
