Skinny and Folds

Remember when I wrote about the Brooklyn Flea and preferences for apartment furniture?  Well, this desk is skinny and it folds.  Plus when it is unfolded it is stable and sturdy. Very cool.  More photos at

Sights, Smells, Sounds, and Mud of Spring

Spring is coming, and lately I can see, hear, and smell it.  Pretty soon it will be time for the mud boots. There was a farm equipment and tractor auction today, so maybe I should already be wearing them.  The equipment auctions are a regular spring thing in our area of Pennsylvania, though usually they don't get started until the official first day of Spring. For the reason, see the mud comment above. 

We saw that some robins came out of the woods this week. The bluebirds have been hanging around all winter, though, so the robins seem a bit wimpy. We also heard spring peepers the other night.  Were they around in the suburbs when I was a kid? I didn't notice them until I went to the mountains with Keith, but maybe I wasn't paying attention. I don't think the tractors drove by pulling the manure spreader, either, or the dump trucks with loads of mushroom soil.

We did have crocus, though, followed by the daffodils.
