I’m playing hooky for a minute. Thanksgiving is over for another year..both of them!….and this is when I usually power clean the whole house in anticipation of the coming holiday season.
I know once I get my halls decked with boughs of holly, cleaning and even just dusting gets a bit tricky. So yesterday I started airing drapes on the line,quilts and pillows on the front porch and washing down walls and furniture with Murphy’s Oil Soap.
This morning however, is so lovely, sunnily blue-skyed and crisp but not uncomfortable, that I can’t resist just enjoying it.
The posts and wire wait impatiently in the garden to be stored for next year. The laundry waits for the line. The floors wait for the bucket.
There are cookies to be chosen for baking and gifts to be created.
But for now, just now, I’m taking a minute.
