Today has been, most prosaically, spent cleaning house. Specifically, I had a goal of obliterating the gritty texture that clings to my bare feet as I walk around the house. We have hardwood floors and I love them, but I do not love the grit. I’ve cleaned both bathrooms, L4’s room, the upstairs hallway, dust mopped our bedroom, and vacuumed the DR/LR (one big room) and the kitchen and downstairs hallway. So much more needs to be done, but I’m taking my second break of the day since L1 left to go row. Not sure what I’ll tackle next, other than a little bit of staining for a kitchen cabinet. (yes, dear friends and family, we’re still not done with our kitchen that we started in 2004. But when the cabinets are handmade, it takes awhile to get things done. That, and having a baby in the middle of the project, a husband in graduate school and then at a new job… and life in general.)
While I “rest” I am going to try and finish up my project for my friend T’s new baby boy. I finished the main part during the first break this morning and have just one thing left to do. I hope to get baby and big sister’s gifts in the mail tomorrow, as well as the yarn off to my secret skein pal. Once baby project is done I can devote time to finishing up sock #2 for my SP#4 pal. And making some clothes for L3 for an upcoming family wedding. And I still need to find some fabric to make my dress for the event as well. I’ve been looking, but haven’t found anything I like yet.
In the meantime, I’ll be watching the butterflies grace the lavender bed. 🙂
