One thing and then another

It started this morning with a glance at the baseboards in the bathroom. I wiped away the offending layer of dust and not a few dobie hairs. This only served to make me notice the spots that hadn't been wiped clean. Four hours later, the lower level of the house is sparkling. Stainless steel appliances, floors and furniture have been polished to within a fraction of their original finishes and the windows are pup-kiss free (for now).

It feels good, and now I (and my hips) need a lie down, but it's time to get ready for the work that keeps my yarn studio stocked.

Maybe I'll sleep well tonight. A reward, if you will, for a morning and afternoon of hard labor. A girl can dream, but only if it's possible for an insomniac to sleep. Tonight's the night.

My knitting accomplishments for Haven are accumulating. I've knit 2 hats, one cowl, and one block for the afghan. Three more blocks and I'll be calling that project a day.

Nice job Rudee - on everything. Nothing as rewarding as a clean house and completed knitting projects for others.

The best I did today was make a pie - so I think I will head on over and we can enjoy your clean home and a slice. Whattdya' think?

[Seriously. A pie. Ah well. That's enough for me.]

You deserve a good rest after all that. So satisfying when everything is gleaming

I wish I got as much done as you do.

Send me some of that energy!

Brenda said...

I am with Gail on this. I need a bottle of that energy. I am jealous of all the knitting items you complete. Everything I do takes me f o r e v e r.....

That is how it starts...you wipe just one smudge off and then the rest looks so bad. I am glad that you had so much energy today.

I haven't done much today and I am tired already. It is great that you got so much done and did a lot of knitting.

Do Dobies always shed so much? My sis's Dobie sheds a lot. Just wondering.

Sounds like you have been cleaning, knitting and working a lot.

I finally came off of a several week intense time to get the house ready for it's open. We had that, now we're kicking back waiting to sell.

It's so good to take a breather.
