This is my last day off before vacation (which starts next Tuesday!) and so I am determined to show our house a little bit of love today. I'm trying to avoid the term "housework" because I really really don't want to do housework today, and spending the day cleaning sounds as dismal as the weather outside! Instead, I'm telling myself I'm merely showing our home a bit of love and attention. Once I get started I'll get in the groove, so to speak, and then the chores won't feel so arduous. Speaking of getting in the groove, I will be listening to free Internet radio as I work, and Marco always tries to sing along! At least I won't lack for company or entertainment while that crazy bird is around!
Time to dust again,
Time to caress my house,
to stroke all it's surfaces.
I want to think of it as a kind of lovemaking
.....the chance to appreciate by touch
what I live with and cherish.
