Every once in a while it does happen...I've just about decided he promises so I'm not out there washing dishes after getting off work and not a single dish is mine. By the time it gets done, by me, it's been a couple of days.

"what weather?"
vitauta asked.

Well, here in snowy, cold Ontario, Canada, it has been wet and white for what seems like months, but was really only about....let's see:14 weeks? (felt longer....)

Today, Sunday, for the first time, the snows are beginning to melt and I can see green grasses (well, weeds) again, AND sunshine, yay! The geese have returned to some parts, and I even saw my first blackbird yesterday - all signs of spring.

It has been a very long, cold winter here. Hence the need for colors.

Thanks. It is nice to know that I am not the only one with dirty dishes in the sink. That is not my favorite chore. Although when I bake, I do have to have the sink empty. I don't know why. Just one of my quirks.

This has been a crazy winter for us here. No winter to speak of. More record breaking days of warm weather than any other year. It has affected the maple syrup run. The sap is not as sweet. So expect record high prices for maple syrup next year. The ski industry in this area has been making snow for the whole winter. The one good thing about spring is the color. Even in clothing. When I returned to the mainland after living in Hawaii in the middle of winter, it was a shock to see everyone wearing dark clothing. I try to buy bright colors all year long.

I just reorganized my kitchen. It makes more sense now.

Spent the the day lazily making sesame noodles, Thai picked cucumbers and maple ice cream base. No I'm enjoying a cocktail and watching Food Network.

I am just about to tackle all the silverware soaking. I have to do it. There is nothing left in the drawer. Unless I prepare finger foods. I used to soak the dishes in scalding hot water. Then I had to let the water cool down. By then it was too cold so I had to up the temp again. Round and round. My sister use to tell me I was giving the dishes first aid. And if I broke something, it was surgery.
