|Day: A period of twenty-four hours, mostly misspent.|
There is a whole day ahead of me,
I want to do today.
I want to
clean up on the patio,
do the kitchen windows,
do the dishes,
change the bed sheets,
do the laundry,
possibly even iron it.
Vacuum and dust the living room.
work on my lace.
Have a cup of coffee,
read a magazine.
Two cooking programs I want to see on television.
Answer my comments and visit some blogs.
Make a floral arrangement.
Shoot some pictures.
This is getting me nowhere.
I’ll better get the show on the road.
Have a great day!!!
PS: I have an idea. I'll make this a live post and update it with pictures? Hmmm, I'll see what I can do. It might motivate me to get A LOT od stuff done. Hmmm...
So check in for updates every once in a while eh?
Well, that takes care of that then. On to the next chore, the dishes.
Proudly announcing ... the dishes are done! But somehow when I look at this picture, this does not look like a whole lot of dishes, no? Okay, I decluttered a little, cleared up a little here and there ... I left them out to dry though, trying to save some time and energy for my next chore.
Vacuuming the living room. While I was busy doing this (and while I was wondering why the hell I did not get sufficient power and where all the cat hair and the cat litter has gone to since it's not in the reservoir )*catching my breath here* that stupid thing dies on me!!! DUH!!
I spent the next half hour trying to clear the tube connected to the reservoir and I ended up cleaning the rest of the floor with my Swiffer mop.
And when that job was finished my vacuum cleaner decided to wake up from it's coma again.
So there, almost 1 PM and I've done the dishes, fed the birds, and vacuumed the floor!
I think I should call this post the adventures of a crappy housewife! DUH!!
Okay, well maybe I should give myself a little more credit. I HAVE spent some time figuring out how to make an "artsy" picture of a vacuum cleaner too ...
Three hours and sixty one pictures later ... update number two:
I took the sheets off the bed and wacked them into the washing machine. At least this one works all on his own, I thought. I switched the television to Travel Channel to keep me company while I dusted the furniture when I heard they're doing a program about Tasmania. Beautiful Tasmania, where my friend Kim lives. Time to relax a little, and watch this for a while. By then I was craving coffee, but I did not want to miss the rest of the program, so coffee had to wait ...
Next on the list ... polishing shoes.
And take pictures of course! I'm rather proud of that one actually, I like it, even if it does not show the other five pairs, all clean and shiny. You'll have to take my word for it!
Time for that cup of coffee now. Okay, okay, multitasking again, I know. I was leafing through a magazine trying to figure out what to eat AND photographing the hungry birds on the birdfeeder all at the same time! Yes, well, if I want to squeeze two days into one, I'd better know how to combine some of my tasks, my days are always too short as it is!
It's 4.45 PM now. If I want to work on my lace a little before I start supper, I'll better get a move on ...
Update 3: Seven fifteen PM. My hubby promised to be home by seven.
I did get to work on my lace a little. Not very long, a little less than an hour, but I'm happy!
Supper is in the oven and it's spreading a welcoming aroma all over the apartment.
There are clean sheets on the bed, and while I was cooking I even got to listen to a cooking program.
Looking back on my day, I don't think I'm a crappy housewife after all.
There is a lot of stuff still on my list, things left undone, but hey ...
Tomorrow is another day.
And there is a promise for some better weather in the air ...
