A Journey Of A Thousand Miles Begins With A Single Step

Ignore the dust!

I gathered a couple of seasons worth of crafting items from the corner I showed a week or two ago. Everything has been wrangled into it’s appropriate container. Only one UFO was removed from the needles and the yarn reclaimed. It was the plain stockinette socks in the cursed yarn. I’ve tried multiple sock patterns with the yarn and each has failed. I don’t know what the yarn wants to be. It can sit in the yarn bin and think about being more agreeable.

Next on the agenda is actually cleaning the living room. A real deep cleaning. All the furniture will be vacuumed and then moved and vacuumed under. The baseboards and walls will be dusted. The wood furniture dusted. Clean out the drawers and cabinets. Wash the curtains and the windows. Wash the light fixtures.

I’m tired just thinking about it.

    I am tired just thinking about what you plan to do. I don’t ever do that kind of cleaning. It’s just not in my DNA. LOL!

    There’s talk of England coming out of Lockdown. It means I shall have to do some cleaning, and I may have to move craft projects off chairs so people can sit down.

  3. That sounds exhausting. I did a lot of cleaning today, but I still have more to do. I should stay on top of it, but knitting always sounds better.


  4. Sometimes it feels good to really tidy and clean. Not too often, but once in a while 🙂 At least it feels good once it’s done!

  5. I have five classes currently, the floors are lucky to get swept every couple of days!

    • I think for homework you should assign your students the task of cleaning your house;) My husband has fond memories of shoveling cow dung for his professor in college. I suppose it was the 80’s and things were different.

      • oh, for a different time when that would be allowed! Today’s crisis – “I can’t find the homework!” Gee, maybe if you check the syllabus, the separate document I posted, OR listen to the video I put up showing you exactly where it is, you could maybe find it? Also, ‘Thank you for posting the solution, can you reformat it to one page?” Sure, can you find a couple hours in my day for me to do that because you’re too lazy to download it and do it yourself?

      • When I was in elementary school I wanted to be a teacher. My friends and I played school. It was so much fun. I’m relieved my life went a different way. There is way too much expected hand holding. I don’t think “responsibility” or “accountability” are even used as words any more:(

      • A few years ago I commented that students “forget” there’s a test. I was told by a friend that I should send a reminder the day before. Do I even have to say which side of the political spectrum she lives on?

      • I’m surprised she hasn’t told you that everyone should get an A, no work required. Just so no one feels badly.

      • Seems harsh for being a friend. I’ve pissed a few people off recently with my opinion on things. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and comments on things. If friends don’t agree that that alone is true oh well. It still hurts though.

      • Our main connection was through our dogs. We had nothing else in common. A couple years later, she messaged me that she was ready to forgive me. I told her where to put her forgiveness
