A Saturday of Cleaning

I've spent the day cleaning...and there is a marathon of picking up clutter, cleaning out dust bunnies and sort out years of accumulated stuff yet to do. It's like a 12-step program with me. One day at a time. Todd says he can see the difference. I just see the tasks yet to be tackled. But I am grateful for a day to clean. And it's only 5:00 p.m. so I have time yet to invest in this immense undertaking. Yep, one day at a time, one task at a time.

"To be a hostess, I'm going to have to surrender my notions of Good Housekeeping domestic perfection....This is tough: My mother set a high standard. Her house is always immaculate, most especially if she's expecting company. But if I wait for immaculate. I will never have a guest."

-- Lauren Winner, Mudhouse Sabbath


  1. Oh, I love Mudhouse. Did I tell you I went to the Mudhouse cafe in Charlottesville when I was there? It is the PERFECT coffee and tea spot.

    Maybe you could clean my house and I will fly out and clean yours?


  2. Love the way you think. I made great progress this weekend killing clutter...but miles yet to go.
