By the end of today all misc "stuff" will find a home so the actual cleaning can begin. I have a visitor coming you see. Marisol my birthday sister will be here for a long weekend next week. A perfect excuse for me to get organized. And I do need those excuses ( welcome them really).

I find as I am spinning this week I am browsing the shelves and getting ideas. I need a spot with my notebooks stacked; yarn nearby and about 6 months of alone time;).
