Blogsam and Jetsam

Flotsam is the part of the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on the water. Jetsam is cargo or parts of a ship that are deliberately thrown overboard, as to lighten the ship in an emergency, and that subsequently either sinks or is washed ashore. This is my personal blog version of the above. Loot freely.

I'm annoyed that the world is going crazier faster than it used to be. But it's interesting to watch.

Because I Was Asked...

...This is not only how we dyed the Easter eggs but also how we dyed the yarn--the leftovers from the coffeemugs got poured over wet yarn and microwaved.

In other news I'm in mild gardening hell. The boxful of perennial garden and poppies arrived last night but the weather is going to get stinky: "SNOWFALL TOTALS OF 7 TO 12 INCHES ARE EXPECTED BY MONDAY MORNING...WITH ADDITIONAL SNOW ACCUMULATION LIKELY THROUGH MONDAY EVENING."

Of course I didn't even have the bed prepared much less any topsoil purchased. Just spent a good hour removing sod so that the snow will soak into the bare dirt (and didn't get all of the grass off, either.)

Even with a good spade it's tough work; makes you wonder how anyone ever got buried up here before diesel engines.
