I've been out surveying the overgrown mass that used to be my gardens. I used to garden a lot before I started quilting. And before the "Great Freeze." The freeze came after a winter very much like this last one. We had no lasting cold weather, and all of my plants, trees, and flowers were in their spring growth phase with everything that could bloom, blooming. It was beautiful. then, on February 4, we had a terrible freeze. It killed nearly everything in all of my gardens. The freeze only lasted two days, but that was enough. I was so depressed that I completely gave up gardening. That's one of the reasons my husband wanted me to have the sunroom - so I could have indoor plants. The gardens didn't exactly go away completely - they've just got very overgrown.
And I just had to show you this. I bought a king-sized litter box! The kitties LOVE it. They have forsaken all others. I have 50 pounds of litter in here, but the cats don't kick it out of this box because of the high sides. I left two of the smaller boxes in the photo to show you just how big it is. It could easily be a child's sandbox! I still have the five smaller boxes throughout the house, but they really only use this one. They like it well enough to take turns! I have to clean it out every time I pass it.
Tomorrow I'll go back to talking about quilting, but I had to share some other aspects of my life today.
