Well, it's Friday and the temp outside is 51 (F). According to the forecast, we'll get a few degrees warmer. We are in February. Normally this past week would have been called a 'winter thaw,' but we've been too warm for anything to really freeze. When the temps are cold, we count down the days until Spring, this year I suspect we will simply slide into our next season.
Yesterday, I used my drying rack for the first time. The only thing I didn't like was the sock clips, though they're not really clips, so I just laid them out on the middle rack. It worked well. In fact, I was surprised at how quickly everything dried.
