Little K went to town with the Dearliest to see about selling a drywall lift. The girls and baby are down for naps, and here I am contemplating what to do with the hour or so of solitude before me. Do I get ahead in the kitchen deep cleaning that has consumed my life for the last few days (cleaning always takes 3 times longer with little helpers)? Do I work on Pokado’s birthday gift (a crocheted outfit for her doll…doll clothes are HARD, although maybe that’s due to my lack of pattern)? Do I write the overdue blog post? Do I finally fold ALL the laundries?
Yeah, I think we can all guess which of those won out today.
So yes. Two weeks ago I came up with a brilliant plan for deep-cleaning the house. I divided it by room, assigned a set number of days per room (based on the level of Disaster in said room), and started out in the kitchen with a triumphant gung-ho attitude. I was SO going to have a spotless house by February. So yes. That was two weeks ago. You may remember from my first paragraph that I’m still in the kitchen. I’d slotted 3 days for that.
I must admit that deep-cleaning goes not-so-well, but at least life is happening and the kids are having boat loads of fun with their water spray bottles and rags. When put before a window, wall, or cabinet, it’s amazing how long those two little objects will keep a child entertained!
Anybody else meal plan a week or so out? I used to do it faithfully until TR came along, and it’s been nearly 10 months now since I’ve done it. Starting to get back into it as much as I can…it takes some stress off my day knowing in advance what’s going on the table.
We had some incredible wind last weekend. Gusts up to at least 60 mph! I guess when a tropical front meets a cold front, Drama Happens. We didn’t lose power completely (strangely enough), but there were times it flickered on and off for minutes on end.
I made a pretty thing!
Next up: a green one. I think. Once I figure out what style to go for. Does anyone have experience incorporating beads into crochet? I really like some of the beaded crocheted jewelry I’ve seen, but I’m not sure where to start with that. Or if I really want to get into beads at all. It’s one more thing to store. And stuff.
Thusly ends a random update. Tea is gone, chocolate is consumed. Maybe I will tackle the kitchen some more now…
