"There's Something in the Closet" temporary quarter round molding appears...
NOT a good sign.
A worse sign was that the closet door was swollen shut.
Add to that the fact that our showers were getting cold a lot faster.
It doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to figure this one out.
The water heater behind Door Number 1 is experiencing issues.
 Prying it open with a crowbar was getting us nowhere.
 Drastic measures...
 ...not to mention plunge cuts...
 ...oh, this is so not good.
Get the bleach, and a big fan, and the tape, and the Goop,
and a glass of libation, Boo.
We have some fun ahead.

Going Shopping

In between gardening prep this week, we were sorting through mounds of things that were formerly in storage. I'm determined to fish or cut bait with all these possessions I haven't seen since before the fire.
Like 80 pot holders to tie onto baking kits as Christmas gifts.
I got those for $0.10 each.
Or these ornaments from Crate and Barrel.
Originally $15.95, the clerk looked at me like I was mental when I left with 40 of them for $0.49 apiece.
Sort, catalog, and get ready to take my life back in an organized manner.
I've been making lists and boxing things like a maniac.
Headed for storage, BRB
If not back, avenge death.

Decor Salad with Vignette Dressing

 Last year, we started some scallions from the ends we trimmed during dinner preparations.
 It's a simple process, and you can have pungent green onions every meal with just a snip of the kitchen shears!
Since I'm running a house and not just a blog, that's what I did yesterday.
I decided I owed you more than a rerun though, so how about a little walk through the house
to see how we're kicking off Spring on the inside this year.
Then you can go plant your free scallions.

 The nest was my 50th birthday gift to myself, and it 
stays under glass for Feline Overlord reasons.

 This little cloche was assembled from Dollar Tree plateware and a dome 
from Goodwill.

 Shells and silver spray paint. I've gotten serious mileage out of these.

I found some of my goodies when we cleaned out the storage pod.

 A little extra light for the dining room in vases the cats would have to plot together to budge.

 Ahhhhhh, Home Goods.

 The tablescape is flourishing, with the succulents taking off.

 The coffee table got a shot of white.

 "Vannah, could you take some artsy shots for me?"
Why do I say things like that?

 And finally, the top of the TV cabinet, which is a work in progress still.
I had stuff to do.

What? There's nothing wrong with an afternoon nap.
My doctor highly suggests it.
And I went to Momma Kitteh for a second opinion.
Grab some herbal tea, we'll wait.
