out-of-season household tip

Hanging shoe organizers with pockets are great for storing gloves, winter hats, scarves, ball caps, and YakTrax.

This no-longer-seasonal tip brought to you by my removing ours (which might well be this one) from the nails where it hangs inside the front closet door, so the contractors can do work on the closet ceiling today.

(And, oh, hey—there are my gardening gloves! Triffid, your days are numbered . . . )

Amateur gardening hour

It was a nice cool cloudy day when I got home from work, and I actually had some energy for a change, so I went and attacked that triffid in the backyard.

(Actual gardeners probably don't want to look at these pictures.)
