“I hate housework. You make the beds, you wash the dishes and six months later you have to start all over again.”
I love Joan Rivers’ humor and I realized these past few days that I haven’t REALLY cleaned my house on 6 months. There. I said it. With just two of us and no inside pets except the occasional grand dog, I didn’t think it got that dirty. Add in our cleaning lady about once a month and it was fine for me. I’d clean for the cleaning lady. That meant throwing things in drawers and closets so that she could move more quickly and cover more ground when she dusted and vacuumed.
Next up. I’ll need to address all of those closets and drawers. And-I learned that I really do like to clean. It’s therapeutic and our house needed it! Having guests has hidden benefits!
Here is the trailer. Already filling up!
I noticed this on our driveway. At first I thought it looked like a toy cherry, but where would that have come from? It’s a petal from a begonia! Looks like a tiny heart. I had just been thinking of a loved one and said a little prayer for them. Then I spotted it. I think God heard my prayer. That was a Godwink. ￼
We decided to eat lunch on the patio and it was a beautiful time for it. It does not get any better. It was the perfect temperature and clear. For a minute! Dawn called to tell me that she had to unexpectedly cancel hula hoop class until further notice and then, the skies let loose out of nowhere. It was crazy and continued for the rest of the day.
I got back to cleaning and since hooping was off, made us a nice dinner while we waited for our guests to arrive. I worked on more alpaca ornaments and need to decide on a way to add the date and a hanger. Eyes or no?
The grand dog has arrived and we have our wood guy cutting fallen trees deep in the woods. Connor hears him and we’re trying to keep him quiet so that our guests can get some rest. Their body clocks are 3 hours behind ours.
Here’s a nice grazing scene. They are very quiet at least!
In the meantime, remember to wash your hands, don’t touch your face, get outside for some fresh air and keep the length of an alpaca cria (which is a baby alpaca and about 3 feet long) between you and the next person.
Have a blessed day!
