The Big Melt

Wow! What a difference a week makes! This photo, taken a few days ago, shows the start of the warm up. What caught my eye was the thin blue line of water being exposed as plates of ice separated. Inspiration for a new art quilt, perhaps?!

The weekend weather promises to be delightful. I'll be busy helping my daughter move to her new digs (an empty nest once again!) and stringing a few twinkly white lights around the yard. I may also putter a bit in the garden shed and get my tools cleaned up. Here's what I do:
  • Scrub with soapy water.
  • Oil metal surfaces with WD-40.
  • Rub wooden handles (unpainted) with linseed oil - wipe any excess.

I have my few favorite tools that I use a lot, so I try to keep them happy!
