Several inches of snow have disappeared in a couple of days, leaving behind all the dog crap that was preserved by the cold and hidden by the snow.
I'm still cleaning the house. I started yesterday on cleaning and organizing the giant "walk-in closet" that takes up about 1/4 of the first floor of my house, and is not for public viewing, which allows me to neglect it — and I have, for a long time. It's been months now that I've had to run an obstacle course to get to my clothes, the ironing board, the tool boxes, the dog food. So I spent all day yesterday, cleaning, dropping stuff off in the Goodwill box, buying organizing plastic drawers at Target; and I'm still not done. I hope to be done by the end of the day. It won't be pretty, but it won't be a disgrace anymore.
And damn! this coffee with caramel syrup is GOOD.
